I've been raised in Bordeaux, I made part of my studies there and now I'm working there. . . I've been travelling in several places of the world, and used to dream to make my life abroad. . . but I came back to my place and I couldn't dream better region to raise my children!
Whatever you are looking for during your holydays, you'll find it in Bordeaux area: Historical places: Bordeaux, Saint-Emilion, Blaye (all 3 recognized by UNESCO), Gastronomy: wines of course, canelés, macaroons, all around ducks. . . Natural sites: the Gironde Estuary, The Arcachon Bay, The wine cultural landscape of St Emilion. . . And don't forget the amazing Dordogne area, land of Humanity!
I'm used to work with people for all over the world, seniors, active, or families. While guiding, I really try to share with you my experience of the place but have a chance to get to know more about our place, your previous experiences. . .
I've told I'm an enthusiastic, fun, reliable, helpful person. . . what is sure, you can count on me to advise you and respond to your wishes!
My favorite place is Saint-Emilion: I used to work for 8 years at the tourist office of St Emilion, very rich experience, and that's how I met my husband: while visiting its wine estate with a French couple in 2007 and since that time I've been living at the winery and give a hand to him when needed, especially for tours at the estate in English or Spanish. We have 2 beautiful girls of 3 and 6.
Do not hesitate to contact me for your visits in the area!
A Recent Review of this guide
Oh My Goodness!! We cannot say how nice it was to spend time with Nathalie. We consider ourselves so fortunate to have been able to spend 3 days with her. She is such a pleasure to be with, so full of knowledge, so organized, so considerate.... we could go on and on! We both learned a ton on this trip about the area, the history and (of course) the wine. We will suggest Nathalie to all of our friends that are coming to the SW region of France. Thanks for everything, Nathalie !! - - Bruce & Joy
