House hunting in September 2012, and looking for somewhere to stay that would not tax our French, we are ashamed to admit that we looked for English names amongst the list of proprietors of chambre d'hotes in the Duras area. Phoned up to make a booking to be greeted by a strong US west coast accent on the other end of the line! Not what one might have expected! Found the place easily and were instantly welcomed as old friends into the household. Hank and Cindy upped sticks from the West Coast 2 years ago and committed to a new life in France with their teenage daughter Caleigh - no mean adventure, and they are making a brilliant job of it. The old farmhouse is full of character and as they continue with the renovation, it will soon have one or two gites to add to the en suite bedrooms that are now available.

Cindy prepares a wonderful breakfast following a trip down the road to the artisan baker for the bread and this is supplemented with yoghurt, fruit and cereals, or anything else you may wish for.

And, yes - we bought a house in the area and look forward to a continuing deeper friendship with the "kindred spirits" we discovered at Petit Clos!

We had a wonderful experience while traveling through the So. of France. Our room was nicely decorated with French furnishings. The hosts are a great family from California, we made new friends instantly. The Kitchen was warm & the scent of their excellent culinary skills greeted us each day. They even helped along with learning the French language. We enjoyed the farm. Had a nice walk through their woods. Down the road is a neighbor who makes fresh bread each morning. Not far from there is a Winery and gave me a welcomed introduction to French Wines. Therefore I recommend if your traveling to the Bordeaux area, near Duras, check out Petit Clos. You won't be disappointed.

As a publisher of lifestyle magazines, as well as many travel and destination publications, I have been fortunate to experience the finest in what the world has to offer. But little prepared me for the delights I would find at Petit Clos Chambres d'hotes in St. Jean de Duras in the Aquataine region of France (just south of Bordeaux).

It was my first solo journey in a long, long time. The wife had major deadlines to deal with and the child was off visiting friends in New York City, so I was left to explore roads less traveled. After a year of relentless deadlines of my own, I sought a place where the pace was ratcheted back, and where there was plenty of good wine.

The Petit Clos was referred to me, and the website offered snapshots of the world I was looking for…pastoral landscapes, broad blue skies and endless vineyards. The fact that the place was owned by some expats was a bonus, as my college level French has collected some thirty years of dust.

Though I had not been a fan of the “bed and breakfast” vacation, the Petit Clos offered private baths and huge rooms, so I figured I could cast aside my snobbery and give it a try. Nothing risked, nothing gained.

Upon arrival, I discovered that the proprietors, Hank and Cindy, to be a lovely couple that were all open arms and full of pleasant hospitality. They showed me to my quarters on the second floor of their turn of the century farmhouse, and I was introduced to a jaw dropping huge room. Being a tall guy, and having spent many nights in the tight and tiny rooms that Europe offers, I was more than pleased with my stately abode.

The expansive space was immaculately decorated in period piece furniture that immediately took me back a hundred years or so. Just what the doctor ordered. A surreal peace consumed me as I looked out my window and took in the rolling hills lined with vines and dotted with hay bails. My bed and breakfast trepidation instantly vanished.

July was hot, and I found myself lounging around the pool in the morning after a sumptuous breakfast of local breads, cheeses, fruits and coffee. Hank would check on me periodically, but he never invaded my space. He would just deliver a plethora of information on the area and loaded me up with options to pursue…or not.

The Petit Clos, I discovered, was in an amazing location. I was able to visit about 10 villages in the period of time I was there, and since it was Fete Season, I was also able to enjoy three local celebrations. Food and wine. Food and wine. Food and wine. Note to self: food and wine.

While taking in the local culture was addictive, nothing beat hanging around at the Petit Clos. In fact, I found myself gravitating back to their 50 acres of paradise to drink Rosé, watch the sun set, to step back, slow down and think about what is important. Like food and wine. Note to self: bring the wife on the next trip.

And there will be a next trip.
