The Hosts

Adeline & Nicolas

Why did you choose to open guesthouse ?

« During a trip to the region, we fell in love with this estate which was once an old farm and vineyard in the heart of the Bordeaux wine region . Conquered by the beauty of the proportions and the spirit of the house , whose foundations date back to the fifteenth century , the idea of opening and a guest house came immediately to mind. Thanks to our studies in hotel management and professional careers of over 10 years in the world of gastronomy and oenology, we thought this house would be the the perfect place to relax and discover the wines and food of the region. »
