Bordeaux celebrations

Bordeaux enjoys celebrating all year round

But whatever your choice, you will not escape the magic of Christmas in the cities be it Bordeaux or Agen or Villeneuve sur Lot.

A reminder Bordeaux is a fabulous wine growing region, and it is a port city of the Garonne river in South West France .

Also well-known for this Gothic cathedral Saint Andre .

There are beautiful mansions 18 to 19th century and notable art museums for example The Musée des Beaux-Arts de Bordeaux.

The dynamic curving river quays have the beautiful public gardens running alongside.

The grand Place de la Bourse, centred on the Three Graces Fountain, over looks the famous Miroir d’Eau reflecting pool.

A must is the Grande Opera House ....Christmas spectacular at the Opera de Versailles, le Grand-Théâtre de Bordeaux

Originally from the UK but we lived in the Isle of Man for over 20 years. We arrived in France in 2002 and bought our home Burthes, in Aiguillon South West France here in the Lot et Garonne, the sixth house that we viewed. The property Gone Fishin' and grounds were originally a tobacco farm, the property nestles on its own 22-acres and is over one hundred years old. It was sympathetically renovated and brought up to date by the previous owners Our contribution to renovation has been mainly cosmetic, making it a more "cheerful house" and adding more colour and character to a wonderful established garden and orchard. We were ready for opening in 2005 with the approval of the Mairie in Aiguillon ( our local village). To the East side of our main house is your home from home, a self catering cottage with your own large private garden, terrace,BBQ and sunloungers. We have a productive kitchen garden, fruit orchard and six hens (which we call 'the girls'!). We share the eggs and any produce from the kitchen garden or orchard with our guests, for free of course. All this is for us a great source of enjoyment as our guests appreciate fresh food and a colourful and tidy garden.
