Our family home on the edge of a small village overlooking vinyards and fields. With heirlooms, antique linens on comfortable beds, good books, a piano, all spiced with a collection of contempory art. We have 5 rooms with divers prices, doubles and suites. This one is for the Terrace Bedroom suite.
A former blacksmith shop, now living room, gave the house its name, La Forge, and much loving resauration work to the 18th Century building gave the results that you can enjoy today...a house that feels like home no matter what your nationality.
- The Terrace Room : This is the main floor bedroom with an ensuite, skylit bath has a terrace to the west and a private entrance from the courtyard.
This room offers a queen bed with the possibility to add a bed for a baby.
The room has it's private bathroom with toilet.
Enjoy the sunset on the vineyards from your private terrace and access to the courtyard.
La Forge main floor living room, library, entrance hall and dining room all have comfortable places to enjoy music, read and gather to talk. There is always room in the fridge to keep tomorrow's picnic and the wine glasses and dishes may be used for you evening meal if you don't feel like going out for dinner every day.
There are garden tables and lounge chairs for relaxing and watching the birds...
For more exercise our family pool at the farm annex just down the road 1 mile is open to our guests as well as a few bikes that you my borrow. This year we've added access to a private beach less than 2 miles from the house...a beautiful turquoise blue lake with water skiing (one low noise inboard boat!) A nearby 50 mile off the road bike path provides a wonderful way to discover the countryside and villages between Bordeaux and the heart of the Entre Deux Mers wine appelation.
Interaction with guests
Bruno and I live both at the farm in his 14th Century water mill and at my family's Forge so you'll see us often...or at least me as Bruno is usually off to Bordeaux early most mornings. I enjoy my cup tea with my guests at breakfast while I fill them in on what's going on in the area.
Bruno proposes lunch twice a month on saturdays for our friends and guests with produce from our gardens and local (URL HIDDEN) you're around you might be interested in signing up for the "table d'hôte". We also organise, with prior reservations, hands on cooking classes in the mill's kitchen with local chefs as well as diners in private French homes. The main idea of all of these activities is to help you get to know the French...and for us to enjoy our guests...but we also understand if some days you'd just like to relax in silence in the hamac.

I'm a french american who has been living in France most of my life. I've run a B&B for many years and I organise personalised specialty tours (cooking, wine, gardens, brocant and contempory art)... as well as being an agent for european performing artists who perform for children and family audiences in North America and Asia. My husband, Bruno, is a psychatrist in Bordeaux and a passionat cook and gardener. We both love working on our 14th and 18th century houses, we have a very messy wood shop where we seem to have never ending projects and every year we have new hopes for our gardens that keep us busy. However, we like to take time to enjoy my four children (who are spread out between several countrys) and our grandchildren... as well as our guests who often become good friends !
