Party Size & Accommodation
Guests will stay in one of our houses, Le Faure, La Musique, L'Orangerie, Le Presbytère and La Grange. All rooms have their own bathroom or shower-room. The last two houses are a short distance away and clients will be picked up and returned. For on-site accommodation early booking is recommended. Maximum number of guests is 60.
There is a price supplement staying at Le Faure when the venue is full. Double occupancy guests have priority at the concert site.
Dress will be casual during the day but is expected to be smart casual for the dinners and concerts.
Clients will be provided with a buffet continental breakfast in each house, dinners and concerts will take place in L'Orangerie and La Musique respectively.
Wines at Tastings and Dinners
It is important to understand the quality of wines that will be tasted and provided with dinner. The evening dinner wines will include wines from e.g. Pauillac, St.Julien, Margaux, Emilion, Graves, Pomerol or Lalande-de-Pomerol and local appellations. Vintages typically range from 1983 to 2003. We specialise in large bottle sizes for added quality and interest.
Clients are welcome to "do-their-own-thing" during the daytime if they so wish. Each day has an itinerary, typically including château visits, tastings and lunch, or a visit to a site of interest. The cost of these itineraries is additional.
There will be plenty of opportunities to buy excellent wines at prices often 50% below those in the UK. Obviously a car is a great advantage, but we have been able in the past to arrange transport back to the U.K. for clients' purchases.
We aim to have excellent menus that complement the wines. Our resident chef is again Georges Gotrand. Of course the cheeses of France will not be ignored.. Special diets must be notified to us on the booking form.
Smoking is not permitted in the Orpheus & Bacchus properties at any time.
