Additional Location Information

The house lies an hour from Bordeaux, 35 mins from Bergerac and 20km from St Emilion. The local village of Gensac is just 1km away.The City of Bordeaux is less than an hour away and you can visit the buzzing restaurants, theatres and incredible architecture. Bergerac, much smaller than Bordeaux, has a very enchanting old town that has great individual shops, fountains, cobble stone streets, a market Bricante every 1st Sunday of the month and a traditional market every Wednesday.Stop at St Foy La Grande to enjoy a coffee in the square, take a walk along the river or if you are around on Saturday morning you will find shopping a real delight.Leaving the house to get to St Emilion (everyone must visit this pretty village!), you should drive through Pujols, as just outside is a great little restaurant with a very pleasant atmosphere and fantastic food. Sunday is a good day for venturing to Issegac Market. The town itself is quaint and riddled with tiny rivers, loved by tourists and locals alike. The dessert wines of the region are fantastic and the Monbazilliac wine, a musty fragrant delight from this spot, is very good value.The most highly recommended restaurant is just a few kilometres away and it is essential to be hungry when you arrive. The vineyard workers of the area leave for their day with sustenance at this family orientated place. The bean and vegetable soup with duck stock is fantastic.If you yearn for sea air and seafood, make an early start to set off for Arcachon Bay, as it will take two hours to get there. The shops are smart and the ambiance is that of a well visited resort where sophisticated Bordelaise promenade. Spain is approximately 4 hours away and en route are Bidart, St Jean De Luz & Biarritz.The region is an area rich with vineyards and Chateaux of every shape and type, with grapes and vines as far as the eye can see.
