Thank you not to take very long showers. We are sharing a 250 liters warm water electric boiler ( meaning 400 liters warm water each day!), which allows reasonable showers for 6 persons. The kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher, also to avoid using too much warm water.
We are a french-danish couple. We've lived in Denmark, the United States and now France. We bought Château La Corne 20 years ago. Willy had to learn everything about wine making, a real challenge. I take care of the house and the renting of the apartment. Through wine selling and renting we have the opportunity to meet many different people and we love it.
We now have bought another amazing place near Saint Emilion and will also be so happy to help our guests to discover this new area.
