A 5-day itinerary for a successful trip

Our Hôtel du Vignoble Collection now includes two cosy settings in the heart of the French vineyards. These establishments have been designed by Alice and Jérôme Tourbier as an invitation to rest, contemplation and epicurean delights. We invite you to discover our two favourite regions: the Loire Valley and Aquitaine.

The Loire Valley is an ideal place for discovery: from emblematic castles to Loire vineyards, the region's rich history and viticulture never cease to amaze visitors.

At the end of this wine immersion in the Loire Valley, we invite you to continue your journey to another emblematic region, where the charm of the South-West and its surroundings await us.
