An absolutely fantastic experience! During our recent trip to Bordeaux for a cycling trip, we spent two nights at The Real. The historic main house and adjacent guesthouse are beautiful and spacious. The owners, Violaine and Patrick, are the perfect hosts in every way. Violaine is a gourmet cook, so do not miss out on making dinner reservations. The grounds of the Real are lovely, just perfect for relaxing after a day of touring the local sights. This place is a GEM!
