Nestled in the Aquitaine countryside in Saint Quentin de Caplong, La Girarde is a gorgeous boutique B&B in a restored farmhouse. Close to the vineyards of St Emilion, Bergerac and Sainte Foy Bordeaux, this pretty stone hideaway is set in 6 hectares of park and woodland. The former home of Jean Piere Carrive, a founding member of the Surrealist movement, the property has now been fully renovated, with limestone tiles, geothermal heating, a fresh lick of Farrow & Ball paint and a salt-water outdoor pool. Your hosts Mark and Trish Tyler can provide delicious 3-course dinners on request, using locally-sourced organic produce wherever possible and guests can enjoy a delicious fresh breakfast out in the gardens.
Relax by the swimming pool with a glass of fine local wine, enjoy walks through the woodlands and park surrounding La Girarde or take a wine tasting tour through the regions vineyards.
A seasonal 3-course menu can be ordered in advance for your evening meal, with a delicious set menu and children can have their own simple menu served a little earlier. There is a small wine list from a selection of good local producers to accompany your meal and teas, coffees, soft drinks, wines and beers are available throughout the day. For breakfast, enjoy fresh croissant and breads, homemade jams, fruit, yoghurt and juices out in the garden or in the dining room.
