Bordeaux, Wine & Culture
Dear Veronique, Nick and I enjoyed the trip enormously. We talk about it every day, and have been telling our friends about it. I think about how all the people we came in contact with were so well informed and enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge. We were so fortunate to be welcomed in chateaux, chalets, and hotel particulier. You certainly have a lot of friends! We saw the beauty of Bordeaux and it’s regions and sampled its bounty, and felt your love and connection to it and its history. Thank you for sharing all this with us!
Bordeaux and its Surroundings
This trip to Bordeaux was incredible. The city, the history, the wine, the gastronomy, the escape
to the Atlantic Ocean and the cultural tours to the Montesquieu castle and the Mauriac’s house.
I’ve been telling my wife that was the best vacation we ever took.
The high point of the trip for me was discussing Mauriac and Camus with the guide when
visiting Mauriac’s house.
Thank you for your expertise.
