Nature getaway less than 2 hours from Bordeaux and Toulouse!

Ideally located less than 2 hours from Toulouse or Bordeaux, Cœur Sud-Ouest is a perfect territory for a disconnection-reconnection holiday. Here, we are in a total change of scenery, we let go of worries, obligations and we let ourselves be carried away by the beauty of the landscapes, the kindness of the locals, the gastronomy, the exceptional wines, the small villages of character... All this on airy Jazz tunes in the summer and a host of festive events out of season...

Madiran? It is the homeland of an intense, fruity red wine, which shares its territory with another renowned appellation, Pacherenc de Vic-Bilh (a sweet white). The Val d'Adour vineyard is rich in diversity, it is a perfect place for wine tourism, great tastings, meeting passionate winegrowers and winegrowers who will have only one pleasure, to make you love their unparalleled raw.

Saint Mont? It is another nearby vineyard, which has its origins in the quality of its soil, a mild climate and favorable to the development of ancient grape varieties. Moreover, there is the only vine in France to have survived the phylloxera crisis which decimated all French and world production. Here we walk, we stop for a little tasting and we talk for hours with these enthusiasts of their land… An experience as intense as it is relaxed.

It's a real Mecca! For more than 40 years, it has been a staple of style, an unbeatable institution...
