We are often asked ‘How did you choose the Lot-et-Garonne?’

It was quite simple really. After circling the airports that have cheap flights from Edinburgh to the South of France on the map and visiting for a couple of driving trips, we narrowed it down to Bordeaux as being the best for us returning to Scotland, as well as friends and family coming to us (read: Location, location, location and Shall we play it safe and move to Condom).

We then went on this trip…

It certainly helped to jog the memory on our return.

Now we have been living amongst all of these smiley faces, just by the word ‘Green!’, for over 9 months and we absolutely love it. It really is stunning around here and I highly recommend a visit.
