We're daydreaming again :) This time we're off to the city of Bordeaux and the surrounding Aquitane countryside, via more wonderful homes on AirBnB. World famous for fabulous wine, the Bordeaux region is also the source of Lillet—which we blogged about earlier—and it lays claim to none other than the macaron. The Ursuline Convent in Saint-Emilion is said to be the birthplace of our favourite confection! We'll tell you more about that in a future post, but for now, enjoy picturing yourself and your loved ones in these incredible places in and around Bordeaux. From a tree house overlooking vineyards, to a renovated water mill, we had a *really* hard time choosing only one image for each. It's definitely worth looking through the full listings!
