Lili's Adventure in France - July 2015
Welcome to a small vineyard in the South of France where some of the finest vines in the world bask in the warm summer sun. Our friends have tended this vineyard for years now and brought it back to its natural roots. The vineyard is now certified organic, uses biodynamic principles, and produces some very distinctive wines of exceptional mineral quality. Nestled in a hamlet between Bordeaux, St. Emilion, and Bergerac, you will be surrounded by vines and walking distance to a small village in the heart of the Dordogne. We all dream of going to Europe and having a fabulous experience. Here are all the details, forms, and dates you need to check yourself in for next Summer.

Each apartment includes a terrace where you can enjoy evening meals looking out over the valley filled with vineyards, forests, and church steeples. From this idyllic setting, you will follow the flow of the Dordogne river and enjoy sunsets and fireworks, popular during the holiday season. The vignoble is equipped with two separate spacious apartments with all the modern amenities. Each suite has two sleeping areas, large kitchen, bathroom(s), living room and private decks with views over the valley. The suites are in separate buildings, one adjacent to the landowners and one adjacent to a wine tasting area. Parking is available on the grounds as are laundry facilities. The thick original walls, some dating from 1671, provide a cool respite from the hot summer days. You can also wander down to the river and enjoy a swim. Dowload the information package for all the details.
La Dordogne is a département in south-west of France. The départment is located in the region of Aquitaine, between the Loire Valley and the Pyrenees mountains named after the great Dordogne river that runs through it. It roughly corresponds with the ancient county of Périgord. In addition to its castles, chateaux, churches, bastides and cave fortresses, the Périgord region has preserved from centuries past, a number of wonderful villages which still have their market halls, dovecotes, tories (stone huts), churches, abbeys and castles. Saint-Léon-sur-Vézère, Connezac, Saint-Jean-de-Côle, La Roque-Gageac and many others are real jewels of architecture. As for the old quarters of Périgueux or Bergerac, restored and developed into pedestrian areas, they have regained their former charm. A number of small towns, such as Brantôme, Issigeac, Eymet and Mareuil, have withstood the often brash changes of modern times. A special mention should be made in this respect to Sarlat and its Black Périgord area.

Pictures from 2014
Lili de Luxe had a great time in 2014. Trips to St. Emilion, the village food fair evening, the new pools, crates and crates of wine, wine tours and tastings, trips to Bergerac, distant valley lightning storms and fireworks, and just walking through the vineyard with friends. Did we mention a day at the Tour de France and the untold quantities of amazing dairy products and classic breads?
Pictures from 2013
Lili de Luxe enjoyed another great year with friends. Quite an age range means we had many different activities. We went to the beach. Took bastille day with fireworks. Lost a Rolex and found it again. Visited amazing fortified towns and lush gardens. Took a half day float down the river. Had great lunches at restaurants and enjoyed the usuall complement of roasted duck and cheese succulent with our amazing local wines.
