Additional Location Information

The gates from the chateau lead on to cycling and hiking paths, across vineyards and woodland areas. Horseriding is available in the nearby village of Fronsac. Canoeing is also possible on the Dordogne river, and fishing at the lake directly opposite the property is available. River cruises are available from Libourne. Neighbouring Chateaux offer all year round visits to their spectacular caves.
For local shopping, the market town of Libourne is closest and is a 10 minute drive. You will find all local produce available for sale at the market, held 3 mornings a week, and on the perimeter of the town there are a wide range of major supermarkets.
Bordeaux's Merignac international airport is a 30 minute drive and Bergerac is one hour from the Chateau. The Mainline railway station is Libourne which serves the TGV from Paris and other rail routes.
A 15 minute drive brings you to Saint Emilion which is renowned the world over for its red wine. Saint Emilion is a medieval town and can be likened to an amazing open-air museum. It has a remarkable underground monolithic church dug out of solid limestone. It is an ideal spot for either a relaxing stroll, or to take a deeper look into the town’s history.
There are numerous historical monuments, museums and galleries, gourmet restaurants famed for their Bordelaise cuisine and countless designer shops to visit in the cosmopolitan city of Bordeaux which is famed for its architectural heritage of the 18th century. It is a 25 minutes drive.
An hours drive brings you to the Atlantic Ocean with its sand dunes, large ocean breakers, some of Europe’s finest unspoiled beaches and glamorous Cap Ferret, where the wealthy of today still choose to spend their summers and dine in some of the finest seafood restaurants to be found on this coastline. Measuring 107 meters, the Dune de Pyla is Europe‘s highest sand dune. From the summit there are truly breathtaking views of the ocean, the surrounding woodlands and the distant Pyrenees. It is well worth the hike up just so you can run down it. For the young at heart, surf enthusiasts should visit Lacanau, which hosts one of Europe’s biggest surf competitions. It is a really fun place with plenty of restaurants and beachwear boutiques. Alternatively, you could visit the charming, buzzing ocean side town of Arcachon with its oyster bays and its protected basin that is ideal for children.
In the neighbouring Dordogne, a suggested day trip would be to explore the well known Caves of Lascaux. Closer to the Chateau is the famous citadelle of Blaye.
