One of the comments at the end of wine tours is that all we seem to do is eat and drink – no problem there thought I, that’s what your are here for but now Bordeaux blonde has found a solution.

Maison Cayrol is a beautiful small gite in Pujols where Asthanga yoga teacher Alexander Latour introduced us to the benefits of this powerful style of yoga.
