Hidden Gems

How about being treated like royalty in a fairytale French Château or staying as the guests of a working winery? We have hand-picked the most unique and characteful properties in our regions to offer our guests a truly memorable experience. And combined with a wine tour, what more Cordeillan Bages in Bordeauxcould you wish for? These breaks are all about Location Location Location and the relaxed itinerary allows for plenty of time to unwind and enjoy your beautiful surroundings. In general, tours and tastings at two estates are arranged to enable a good understanding of the region and its wines and one of these tours usually takes place on site or within easy walking distance. Additional tours and nights can of course be arranged upon request.

Part of the charm of a large number of these unique properties is the rural and remote locations. We therefore suggest that guests on these packages consider hiring a car to avoid costly taxi transfers to and from the individual wine estates and the neighbouring towns. Spitoons are of course, always available for our clients if preferred – please just ask your winery host. Alternatively, a car and chauffeur or taxi transfers can be arranged for a supplement, if you would prefer not to drive to your off site visit(s).
