Norrie and Laura's visit to a Monbazillac vineyard

"We visited this Vineyard at Monbazillac in September and spent two nights there. The owners do not speak English, however they were incredibly friendly and helpful nevertheless. Lots of pointing and gestures. The pitches are terraced and generally level with superb views over the vineyard and when we visited there were another 5 vans well spaced. There are picnic tables at each pitch and the owner provides levelling blocks if required. Water is available as is toilet emptying facility. Its about 8 km from Bergerac and well signed. It was the start of our tour of the Dordogne and we were sad to leave."

Norrie and Laura Bradshaw

Phil & Denise's experience

“From mid-August to mid-October we travelled around France and Southern Europe we stayed on many France Passion locations a total of 14 nights and had a wonderful time, the hospitality at times was so good it was embarrassing for us as strangers to be so warmly welcomed, we had nothing but positive experiences and met some very charismatic people from all walks of life. if you're as polite as your hosts you will have no problems, my tip is when in France never ever ask “Parlez-vous anglais” no matter how bad your French may be have a go, help is at hand and you will have a much better experience.”

Phil & Denise Dougan
