Red & Jenny


While we will arrange a group activity for those who will be joining us for the week, we want this to be a vacation for you to explore the area and enjoy the sights and culture. Let's face it--with all there is to offer, you would have to try pretty darn hard not to have an amazing time!

The following is information that we gathered from the chateau's website, which is also quite handy:

The area surrounding the chateau is the ideal place to experience the French lifestyle. Explore local vineyards, bakeries, cheese shops and open-air markets or plan for a fun outdoor adventure. Excellent shopping and restaurant opportunities abound in the surrounding towns and villages.
