Spend the first 4 nights of your journey in a restored 15th century farmhouse where you will be warmly welcomed by Flo & Phil. They know the Loire Valley inside out and can give you off-the-beaten-path addresses and tips on finding places that tourists usually miss. One evening they will cook a delicious "Table d'Hôtes" dinner that you will share with them and other guests.

Located on the south banks of the Vienne River, this charming B&B is within short driving distance of Chinon and Saumur, beautiful, historic cities. Included in this itinerary is a bike rental for a day. You will explore, at your own pace, several villages and castles such as Langeais and Villandry. No worries, the road along the Loire river is totally flat!

Feel the real French "good life" strolling around peaceful villages on market days.

Continue your tour in the Bordeaux region either in a former Wine Estate in the Medoc area for the wine aficionados or in a townhouse inside the gates of Bordeaux for the lovers of this wonderful 17th century city. In both places you will be welcomed by a French family, in a peaceful atmosphere.

Built along the banks of the Garonne river, the opulent merchants' homes are very specific to Bordeaux. The rise of colonial trade together with the growth of the wine industry contributed to the amazing expansion of the Gironde region during the 18th century. You will find everything you need: from villages nestled into the Medoc or St Emilion vineyards, to the bustling night life in Bordeaux. Also, bear in mind that Bordeaux's Sainte Catherine Street is the longest shopping street in Europe!

Very near Bordeaux, we have planned a very special wine tasting: for an hour, a wine specialist will test all your senses, taste, smell, sight (appearance of wine), and will guide you to discover your wine preferences!

Welcome to France !
