Family week-end : Moulin de Laboirie, Bordeaux, France

A small stream, a big, wooden barn and a swimming pool in the middle of country fields and rose groves – you’ll fall in love with Moulin de Laboirie at first sight. Pack your bags, grab your family and enjoy the warm hospitality of your hosts at this cozy spot less than an hour from Bordeaux.


The Location
Less than an hour’s drive from Bordeaux and just a few kilometers from Bazas, Parisian couple Horia and Jan fell in love with this beautiful little region in the Southwest and left everything behind to establish the Moulin de Laboirie, which has been charming its guests for more than four years. Today, this authentically Baza-style property, with its pale green shutters, tiled roof, old wooden barn and little stream surrounded by fields of flowers boasts five charming and simple guest rooms.

The Decor
The old mill has been brilliantly renovated into a comfortable family home. One of the best parts of this guest house is its common area, designed for lazy, rainy afternoons, with plush sofas surrounding foosball tables for the younger ones. Outside, the swimming pool invites you to lounge for hours in the sunshine, amid country fields that extend as far as the eye can see. In the evening, Horia and Jan – who truly love their jobs – create a number of dishes for you to enjoy at dinner in the warm candlelight.

For Kids
The entire property will delight city children who aren’t often able to enjoy the countryside. Each morning, you can grab yesterday’s bread and feed the donkeys, before greeting the property’s cats and dogs and strolling under the acacia trees, picking strawberries. The heated pool and foosball table are sure to please the older kids, as well. Logistically speaking, the set-up is ideal – with a kitchen that allows you to prepare meals for little ones, a large terrace that parents can enjoy in the evenings (while their children sleep just a few feet away) and cots available, should you need them. If you’re traveling as a group, be sure to reserve the family room, which includes four single beds.

We love the prices of the guest rooms – ideal for large families.
