Truly a wonderful and peaceful escape less than an hour from the city of Bordeaux. La Cigogne is a restored farmhouse set in the country with orchards and vineyards all around. I spent three nights here in September 2012 and had an amazing sejour. Yves was a wonderfl host. Breakfast was plentiful with homemade bread and jams. The rooms were large and comfortable. The bathrooms were luxurious and my only regret was not being able to relax in the large, oversized tub with a glass of wine! The location is about a five minute drive from the small village of Monsegur, and less than an hour from Bordeaux or St Emilion. This is a wonderful place to either relax and do nothing - or to use as a home base for day trips throughout the region and come home in the evenings to warmth and comfort. I hope to return next year!
