By Sofia for Visite pique nique 9 months ago 5
We loved the tour at chateau La Croizille! The tour guide was very interesting and helpful. We had a very pleasant experience tasting the different kinds of wine from Saint Emillion’s region and a superb picnic afterwards, with the most typical and luscious French delicacies. It was an undoubtedly splendid and absolutely recommendable experience! Sofia Pinto
