In front of the Médoc castles, on the right bank of the Gironde River, Clos Marcamps stands out as the elegant anchor point for oenophiles as well as leisurely strollers in search of greenery. Let’s shine a light on this well-preserved great vintage from Bourgeais.

They’re among the Parisians who heeded the call to escape the city, seeking a greener lifestyle and a fresh start in the hospitality industry. In launching this new chapter, Jean-Philippe and Virginie – the proud owners of the highly acclaimed Clos Marcamps – initially looked to the Drôme Provençale. However, fate had different plans. It was in Gironde – specifically in Prignac-et-Marcamps – that they felt an undeniable pull. “The attraction was irresistible,” they explain, and it’s easy to see why. Confronted with the charm of this chartreuse – a quintessential mansion of the region – along with its hunting lodge and barn, doubt simply melts away. These three buildings, each with its own unique purpose, have stood the test of time – the barn, in particular, boasting three centuries of history – and now transport visitors to a bygone era. On the agenda for their stay in Gironde: indulging in (generous) wine tastings at various vineyards and exploring (unexpected) heritage sites.

A bucolic estate organized like a pocket hamlet

Fully privatizable, the Clos Marcamps estate exudes the charm of a quaint countryside hamlet. Featuring its chartreuse – a 19th-century former residence of Bordeaux nobility, designed entirely on one level – in addition to its hunting lodge and barn. Across these 8,000 square meters, where other structures unfold, echoing the picturesque allure of the countryside – including a dovecote and a discreetly blossoming well – one easily gets lost in reverie, enveloped by two-hundred-year-old linden trees.

These architectural delights, however, do not overshadow the estate’s focal point: the remarkable 14-meter-long swimming pool seamlessly aligned with the master house, which houses all communal spaces. These include a fully equipped kitchen adorned with a magnificent stone fireplace and a luminous dining room. For peaceful slumber, the couple has thoughtfully integrated five bedrooms with entirely independent access within the hunting lodge and barn.

Jean-Philippe and Virginie’s dedication to service is at the heart of the Clos Marcamps experience, emphasizing both culinary delight and personal well-being! After a dip in the pool, it’s hard to resist the relaxing bubbles of the jacuzzi or the pleasure of a pre-booked massage. Truly, what more could one desire?

Bourgeais, a territory at the crossroads of Gironde
– where the senses come alive.

 

 

At the bottom of the Gironde estuary, on the tranquil banks of the Dordogne, Bourgeais is a territory rich in activities thanks to its privileged location. And wine enthusiasts will certainly attest to that! Visits to the wine cellars along the Route des Côteaux – both in Bourgeais and Blayais – are a must-have experience in the area. Just as essential are visits to the highly sought-after Médoc castles – such as Château Margaux – on the other side of the estuary. But what about the local heritage? “You can’t miss the Blaye Citadel – a UNESCO World Heritage site – the adorned cave of Pair-Non-Pair, and the troglodyte houses carved into the limestone cliffs of Gauriac,” Jean-Philippe instantly recommends. There are so many excursions available to enrich the stay of history enthusiasts, which can also be combined with a refreshing day at the Arcachon Basin. A waterside interlude can be enjoyed by taking the Blaye ferry across the estuary. This journey gives the pleasant and exotic sensation of heading to an island… or almost!
