Rugby, Horse racing and Wine!

Yes, you can combine my three favorite pastimes!
Fortunately the south of France has some of the best rugby clubs.....Toulouse, Perpignan, Montpellier, Narbonne and Beziers for starters. Most of these teams play in the European leagues..Heineken Cup. So if you want to follow your UK or Irish rugby club when they are playing the French side AND you want to combine a wine tasting/tour then drop me a line.
The Irish rugby team are also playing a warm up game against the French side in Bordeaux in August ahead of the Rugby World Cup.

The French love horse racing too. Many of the top tracks are in and around Paris, such as Chantilly, Longchamps or Maison Lafitte. However we have a few hidden gems in the south of France. Pau racetrack has a fantastic winter festival with great jump racing, whilst Le Bouscat in Bordeaux has year round flat, jump and trotters.

We can combine vineyard and Chateaux visits with many different sporting or cultural events. Or simply combine a wine trip with you holiday in the south of France!
