Chateau Prieure Marquet, a luxury boutique chateau hotel just outside of Bordeaux, is the perfect French countryside getaway. Located just 40km from Bordeaux, it makes a wonderful base for exploring Bordeaux's wines.
We spent the night on farms producing everything from bison to wine throughout France with the France Passion program for motorhomes. Last summer one of the highlights of our 3-month motorhome tour of France was camping overnight on local farms. While it isn’t possible to just pull into a farmer’s field and set up camp, there is an organisation called France Passion that makes it almost that simple.
