Just wanted to say that Chateau Lagorce is a beautiful place to spend a long weekend. No doubt we only scratched the surface of what is available in terms of activities but we had a wonderful four days tasting wines (Chateau Peneau family were delightful and generous, Chateau Verdus much grander but also very informative and well worth a visit), cycling (see the bike hire from Creon website), swimming, fishing and lastly drinking much wine! The Chateau is well equipped and comfortable and has a beautiful courtyard which catches the sun (although there is shade too) which would be perfect for outdoor eating if it were slightly warmer than during our visit.

Rory Ramsden (see blog) cooked us a good meal for excellent value in the Chateau kitchen. He and his wife are good fun as well as good caterers.

Thanks go to Edward and his family for helping to organise the trip and being so welcoming.
