The Bordeaux region is a remarkable area, but the proximity of Merignac airport and the size of the vineyards make it impossible for large capacity balloons to fly. However, we at “Ferme du Ciel” will make you fly in small balloons that carry only two to four passengers and can thus land on smaller fields. If you are a group, we will use several balloons to carry you all! Balloon flights are possible at sunrise, or two hours before sunset, when the air is calm.
You will discover the most beautiful Châteaux, rivers, forests and vineyards of the area. If we fly over the forest, you will be able to see and photograph wildlife. You will be a real crew member, and participate in the inflation of your balloon, guided by the crew, then fly for one hour or more, according to the weather. Your pilot knows the History of the region and will be able to answer all questions.
The retrieving crew will join you upon arrival, bringing the picnic, made with local products and wine; unless you chose the “Exclusive Grand Cru” flight, during which you will experience wine tasting on board, performed by a Chateau owner. And you will also get a picnic with South West organic food after landing.
You will also get a flight certificate and the crew will take you back to your hotel, or your car.
La Ferme du Ciel holds an Air Operator Certificate from the French Directorate-General for Civil Aviation.
Allow yourself to slow down during a two-days break! We will share with you a unique experience: the discovery of a landscape from the air, during a hot air balloon flight, and from the ground, during a walk in our private forest, and the vineyards around. Patricia, pilot and geographer, will unveil the misteries of the landscape for you: plants, animals, villages, agriculture… Let us add to this a gastronomical experience, with our South-West cuisine, solid breakfasts, and two quiet nights
