About experience

In the morning you will enjoy a hearty and nutritious breakfast with a gourmet buffet onboard and take your lunch with you to start your adventure biking/walking/ or taking our mini-bus with a group of 8 persons accompanied by one of our local guides to discover the land of vineyards. Enjoy vineyard tours, wine tasting and French tables in every journey. Discover the 6 Bordeaux Wine Routes every day with a different destination !

Guests can rent a road bike or an E-bike and are provided with quality maps and a roadbook, can get a GPS with the recorded tracks and every evening there is a briefing with video presentation and a slideshow. Guided option is available and recommended; the guests ride as a group led by the tour guide with a sweep to ensure everyone else arrives at the destination safely. At night you'll enjoy chef prepared regional specialties with fresh ingredients, whilst the bar offers a wide variety of excellent local wines to enjoy during dinner, or simply to savour it with a sunbath on the deck and let your cares float away !

All this in one convenient package for you that you can also personalize it according to your preferences and needs, with your own Bike or E-bike/bus/guide if you want.
