La Clariere Barrel Hall Domaines Laithwa

Established in 1969, Bordeaux Direct continues on Tony Laithwaite's work of finding incredible, family owned, petits châteaux, and bringing them exclusively to you.

Back then, Tony started out with a dream and a van. Now, over 50 years later, we are carrying on the tradition. Having been living and working in Bordeaux for such a long time, we have developed an enviable list of contacts across the region. 


Through this network, we have special access to parcels that others can only dream of.
