Inspiration - Disconnect for a weekend

Published the 10/20/2020 in Exploring the Region

Autumn is already here, and the current situation does not offer clear prospects for future travel opportunities abroad. This is why we have selected some offers that lend themselves to the situation. On the program, escape guaranteed for a weekend, even a few kilometers from home... 

And for those who can't come yet, select your ambience(s), your favorites activities (sports, gastronomy, history...) and we will  tailor the perfect stay for  you! 

in the vines

Lodge in the heart of the vineyards, in the guest house of a wine estate for example. Choose your appellation, and let us guide you for a weekend of disconnection. With or without spa... Sauternes, Médoc or Saint-Emilion to each its own appellation. And if you are in a group, take the opportunity to privatize a property for the weekend.

What do we do? Visit the cellars, taste the latest vintage and enjoy a table d'hôte at the château to relax. Leave the autumn outside and warm up by the fireplace...

When is best? Ideal in the fall, or in spring. Each season has its own color, enjoy the first rays of sunshine and the flowering of the vine in spring. In winter, take advantage of the spa areas to relax away from the crowds, or from the cellars, with an assembly workshop for example.

And if the season lends itself to it, combine the vineyards and the ocean with a Saturday on the land, and a Sunday at sea, aboard a private cruise. 

Weekend entre vignes, chais et détente



When to go and what to do? From May to October, embark on a private barge for a seafood and Bordeaux wine lunch in a magnificent setting. In winter, take advantage of the open air and the beautiful sunny days to taste fresh oysters on the edge of the Basin, directly at a producer. A long walk on the beaches of the Côte d'Argent, a day of initiation to surfing with your family or a bike ride under the pine trees...

It is the guarantee of a weekend in the countryside, to be combined for those who wish it with a moment of relaxation in one of the spas of the region, or a golf course between pines and ocean.


Ambiance Bassin - Arachon ou Cap-Ferret, à vous de choisir


Two destinations, two atmospheres. Whether in the heart of Armagnac or Cognac country, it is the ideal weekend to recharge your batteries in the heart of winter. Take advantage of a weekend to discover local specialties, visit the region's distilleries, and rediscover unique know-how.

Lodge in the heart of a magnificent building on Cognac or Armagnac, and enjoy a good book by the fireplace or by the pool. As for gastronomy, choose your atmosphere between gastronomic table and a charming inn at a local producer.

When to go ? All seasons, but don't miss in winter the tradition of the Armagnac flame. In Cognac, the distilleries are active all winter long, which gives a crazy charm to the destination, and a so particular smell!

...Ou Armagnac?  

PERIGORD for foodie

In a green setting less than two hours from Bordeaux, we have selected a few beautiful guest houses for you to recharge your batteries for a weekend. Stop time and recharge your batteries, or go back in time in the heart of the Dordogne Valley, a territory rich in history and heritage.

You are staying in the heart of a traditional Perigord house, close to some of the most beautiful villages of France such as La Roque-Gageac, Sarlat...

When to go? What to do? All year long ! Yes because in winter, you can enjoy the truffle around a cooking class with a local chef. In spring and autumn, the colors lend themselves perfectly to walks, under the walnut trees, or in the gardens of the castles of the region. In summer, enjoy the orchards and the cano¨ë on the Dordogne Valley. Finally, all year round, visit one of the prehistoric sites of the region (Lascaux).
