At our bed and breakfast, (chambre d’hotes), Beau Séjour, we are waiting to welcome you and to share with you our passion for the beautiful wine growing region of the Gironde, the Bordeaux Wine Country. Our bed and breakfast is ideally situated close to Bordeaux and the vineyards of Saint Emilion, Pomerol, Sauternes, the Entre deux Mers, the Medoc and Castillon.The medieval city of Saint Emilion is 15 minutes by car, the historic cities of Bordeaux, Castillon and Bergerac are also only a short distance. The coastal towns of Arcachon, Gujan Mestras, for oysters straight from the sea, and the Dune du Pyla are within reach.The fortified (bastide) towns of the Gironde are fascinating to visit especially on market days, to sit outside a café and absorb the atmosphere with a glass of wine or a cup of coffee or tea is wonderful exercise!The airports of Bordeaux Merignac and Bergerac Roumaniere will bring you to our bed and breakfast, Beau Séjour, within an hour. The TGV runs from Paris directly to Bordeaux and Libourne, just 20 minutes from our B&B.
The name of our holiday cottage, Les Vendangeurs, means the grape pickers. The cottage was used to house grape pickers during the harvest time in years gone by, hence the name.Our cottage is perfect for those who like to sit peacefully and relax, perhaps with a glass of wine or for those who like to walk or cycle in the lanes around the vines and small villages.The holiday cottage is suitable for between 2 - 4 adults, there are two bedrooms and two bathrooms. An additional bedroom and bathroom, adjacent to the cottage, can be included in the vacation rental. The cottage kitchen is equipped for people who like to cook and eating on the terrace is a real pleasure. Alternatively we can provide dinners that we have prepared for you to eat either in the cottage or on the terrace or you can join the guests in our bed and breakfast for dinner, on nights when we cookBreakfasts are provided which include bread, a selection of homemade jams, fruit, yoghourt as well as savoury items such as cheese, ham or smoked salmon.Buying food and wine, especially on vacation, is one of life's great pleasures, perhaps at the farm or the chateau or from a market, ideal for a picnic or a meal. Each day there is a market nearby and on most days a choice of markets. We have tried to make the cottage suit those people who like the independance of self-catering but at the same time to be spoilt and not to have the chores of self-catering.

What is a chambre d’hotes?In France the term chambre d’hotes means a room with your hosts, a little like an English bed and breakfast but more welcoming. The idea is that the guest is made to feel part of the household with the owners present. We very much try to follow this idea at our chambre d’hotes as we live here and we are here to help and to share our knowledge and passon for the region.Recently quite a lot of wine chateaux have opened a ‘chambre d’hotes’ and we hear that their guests are sometimes disappointed when they find not the owner but a manager and often that the owner does not live at the property. It is often much more of a commercial rather than a family affair.
