Sharing my French Heaven – Partager mon petit monde

(In English below)

Deux couples adorables avec moi cette semaine aux chambres d’hôtes. Originaires de Vancouver au Canada, ils sont fous de vin et de bonne chair. Je crois qu’ils ont été gâtés…

Je les ai bien sûr envoyé à mon restaurant préféré de l’autre côté de la colline: Le Clos Mirande. Ils s’y sont rendus au coucher du soleil en passant par les vignes. Le lendemain, ils sont restés autour de Saint Emilion. Ils ont visité le petit Château des Laudes et le grand Château Figeac. La visite de l’église monolithe était aussi au programme. Elle est incontournable! Le lendemain, ils ont suivi la route du Médoc vers Margaux et Pauillac. Ils ont déjeuné au Château Lynch Bages qu’ils ont ensuite visité. Ce matin, avant leur départ pour Paris, je les ai emmené au marché de Libourne. Nous nous sommes arrêtés à Pétrus sur le chemin…

Quel plaisir de recevoir tous ces amoureux de la vie qui nous viennent de France et du monde entier :0)

Two wonderful couples stayed with me at the B&B this week. Wine lovers from Vancouver, I think they had a wonderful time.

I sent them to my favorite restaurant on the other side of the hill: Le Clos Mirande. They walked there through the vineyard at sunset and had dinner on the terrasse overlooking the hills and the vines. The next day, they stayed around Saint Emilion. They had tours and wine tastings at Château des Laudes and Château Figeac. The visit of the underground  church was also on the program that day. They were blown away by it… On Friday, they followed the road to Médoc through Margaux and Pauillac. They had lunch at Château Lynch Bages followed by a private wine tasting. This morning, before leaving for Paris, I took them with me to the Farmers’ market in Libourne. We stopped by Pétrus on the way…

What a pleasure to welcome such wonderful people from all over the world and share my French heaven with them… A true privilege!
