One of a kind experience!
Joan and I just finished finished enjoying 6 days and 5 nights in the most wonderful of places- Chateau Alizes-a 17th century Chateau set in the countryside about an hour from Bordeaux, France. We were one of 5 couples and a single gal (11 total) who had an all inclusive, over the top experience. Gourmet meals and French wines (evening meals were 5-6 courses with matched wines with each course, duck confit at one of the lunches, made to order full breakfasts) and planned daily excursions to small area historic towns for wine tastings, caviar farm tour and tasting, nut farm tour, shopping and site seeing and more. We even canoed and kayaked on the river that the Chateau overlooked and had cocktails in the pool bar at Chateau Elizes that Hemingway was a frequent guest at. The people were wonderful and the food a gastronomic delight. We will have to starve for a month now to shed the pounds we gained but it was truly worth it.”
