From start to finish, La Madelene and Rhone Wine Tours were exceptional. Philip and Jude are hosts extraordinaire. There website is comprehensive, with Philip keeping on top of everything from our initial contact with utmost organisation, from transport to and from the Avignon TGV to the well chosen wineries on the tour. Everything was classy and top notch. Jude is an amazing cook and hostess. Philip is very knowledgable about the wines of the region.
Everything in the wine tour was included, from the beautiful breakfasts of fresh fruit, muesli, yoghurt and French breads and pastries to our picnic lunch in Vincent Rochette's beautiful biodynamic vineyard, our lunch and dinner at scenic local restaurants and Jude's wonderful dinners paired with Philip's exceptional wines.
The home is beautifully appointed with fine furniture and amenities...towels, soap, spacious shower, comfortable bed, large room, garden views, large pool and overall tranquility.
Philip kept us to a well-paced schedule at the wineries. We started and ended on time, with time to relax before dinner. He and Jude work very hard to provide the best for all of their guests. To say anything less would be selling them short.
My three nights at La Madelene were too short. I would like to return to this beautiful place to further experience the Southern Rhône.
