A wine lover's dream - two charmingly quirky super-sized wine barrel cabins, in a working vineyard in the heart of French wine country, with tour and tasting included.
Coup 2 Foudres is listed in affiliation with Booking.com.
Coup 2 Foudres offers a once in a lifetime stay in a snug and surprisingly spacious giant sized wooden barrel, situated on the sunny slopes of a traditional working vineyard in the heart of Bordeaux, one of the world's most famous wine making regions. Each en-suite barrel sleeps 2 guests and comes with welcome bottle of wine, kitchenette, sweeping views, and a tour and tasting package included in the price of your stay.
These huge barrels would normally be used store the wine while it ages, but these two have been specially built for a different purpose, offering a dream holiday for wine lovers, or indeed anyone who enjoys delicious food and drink amid the warm and peaceful French countryside.
Each barrel is compact but perfectly formed, with airy high ceilings and a spacious feel. They come with a comfortable double bed, little living area, kitchenette and neat en-suite bathroom with shower and WC. From the windows are far-reaching views across the fields. They're located right in the middle of the vineyard, where staff work during the day, but which you have all to yourself in the evening and at night.
Coup 2 Foudres are part of Chateau de Bonhoste vineyard, owned by the same family for five generations. A tour of the beautiful old vineyards, plus a wine tasting session to sample some of their delicious produce is included in the price of your stay. Also included is a delicious continental breakfast, delivered to your barrel door each morning. Staff can also bring you a picnic to enjoy out in the sunshine among the grapes.
Beyond the vineyard gates you'll find miles of the stunning countryside of south western France to explore. Located in the Bordeaux region of Northern Aquitaine, Chateau Bonhoste makes a perfect base for long days out among the rolling fields of grape vines and sleepy country villages, with a picnic of local cheese and fresh bread for a lazy lunch in a shady spot. A few miles away is the beautiful Medieval village of St Emilion, filled with ancient churches, miles of historic catacombs, little cafes and excellent bistros, and winding streets paved with cobblestones from England, shipped over to France as ballast on English ships and replaced on the return journey with barrels of wine. The vibrant regional city of Bordeaux is only an hour's drive away, offering amazing food markets, great shopping, restaurants and of course truly world-class wine.
Bordeaux airport is just under 60km away, approximately one hour's drive
