    The visit to Pitray and the Pyrenees counts as one of the best experiences of my life. The friendship, hospitality and general camaraderie distinguishes this very personal adventure from the strictly commercial varietals. Alan and his family are generous with their time and expertise and insure that this will be a vacation that you will always remember.

    Dordogne Bordeaux Wine Vacations France From Inside Wine Tours

    My wife and I recently had the great pleasure of spending a few days at Chateau Pitray in the Bordeaux region of France, to cycle some of the local roads with Allan Reeves, our friend and guide. I had visited the year before but I wanted to return with my wife so that she too could enjoy this beautiful property and region. Being at the chateau was a magical experience. It is a very large finely built castle structure furnished with fine antiques, and set on more than two hundred acres of land that have been owned by the same family for more than four hundred years. For those of us from the “new world,” that is unfathomable. The Count and Countess de Boigne, the current owners in residence, were charming and gracious hosts.

    The area surrounding the Chateau provided great opportunity for cycling, sightseeing, and wine tasting.  The roads for cycling were uncrowded and all well paved, and Allan led us on journeys through the beautiful vineyard covered countryside, along the Dordogne River, and charming old French villages. We dined on wonderful fresh food in and out of the Chateau and visited the not-to-be missed nearby medieval town of St. Emillion. We will certainly go back.

    My husband and I recently returned from a two week trip to France, five days in Paris and a week in the Dordogne. It was a wonderful trip, but the highpoint was a visit to Château de Pitray where we were graciously received by Mr. Pierre-Edouard de Boigne and his wife, Alix. The regale chateau suddenly appears at the end of a long driveway and almost takes your breath away. After a fascinating tour through the winery, we entered the elegant chateau where we had the pleasure of tasting the end product. It was a very memorable afternoon.
