In the heart of the vineyards

Claire Posted on 26th February 2016 by Claire

One of the joys of being in the French countryside is being able to sample the local wines – and it doesn’t get more local than this!

Relais des Vignes is one of four smart, spacious cottages in the grounds of a working vineyard, run by a very hospitable Franco-Oz couple.  The owners are especially welcoming & knowledgeable - whether your passion is wine, history or things to see or do they'll point you in the right direction.

The vineyard enjoys an enviable location in gently undulating countryside and is fantastic for a relaxed week; there is a good-sized shared pool and if you can drag yourself away from the vineyard the surrounding area has plentiful opportunities for exploring on foot or by bike.

Relais des Vignes is just a short distance from Bordeaux, recently voted by The New York Times as one of the top travel destinations...  The city is enjoying something of a renaissance with several large projects underway or recently completed including the Cité du Vin and the anticipated completion of the TGV high speed train line, putting Bordeaux just 2 hours from Paris.
