After finishing a long and horrid drive from Marseille (in bumper to bumper traffic) we arrived in paradise! We were worried that we would miss dinner since we were around an hour late, but they had waited, and had our wine ready for when we sat down. I loved the communal dining with the other guests, and since we were all keen on trying the wine we got the chance to sample most of it - wonderful. We especially liked "La Verriere". Dinner was simple and delicious.
Our room (Jonquil) was beautifully decorated in yellow, our water bottle always full, and a very comfortable bed!
We spent a lot of time at the beautiful pool - definitely recommend it. We also drove to St Emillion and Bergerac - close by and worth a day trip!
The hosts, Jacquie, Wilfred and Heather took wonderful care of us and were very warm and welcoming.
