Our background

We are Paul and Tanya Nicholson and we moved to France in 2016 with our young daughters, Evie who is 11 and Poppy who is 6.  We are originally from the North East of England. Having spent many happy holidays in this area of France we have grown to love it. So we decided to take the next step and move over to give our daughters a new experience and introduce our friends and family to this beautiful area of France. This area, famous for the beautiful Gironde Estuary, Cote de Blaye and Bordeaux area and with a stunning coastline, you can’t help but have a fabulous holiday!

As we have young children our gites are very child friendly. All you need to pack when leaving your home are your essentials. We cater from tots to teenagers but we also have something for the adults…..an onsite free weekly wine tasting evening.

Do not despair if you do not have children though, our gites are set up so you do not have to look at sterilisers and highchairs if there is absolutely no use for them. You can enjoy the pool and garden and the wonderful vineyards and coast which this area has to offer.

We hope you have an amazing holiday with us at La Maison Bleue.
