The Frayse’s estate is located 15km away from Bordeaux in Fargues-Saint-Hilaire, just next to Entre-Deux-Mers region. This area is well-known for its vineyards between Garonne and Dordogne rivers. Not too far south are Marmande and Langon, to the West Bordeaux, Libourne in the North, and Bergerac in the East. You will be charmed by the ancient cities, the mills and castles around.
