The Aquitaine region

Aquitaine and Gironde offers a number of interesting activities. Wine production is the heart of Gironde and there are lots of possibilities for tasting wines and for visiting the wine properties.

The weather in Gironde is mainly warm and dry from April to Mid October.In June and July temperatures can and will exceed 28C. August is warmer and temperatures will exceed 32C. September is a bit cooler but still very nice. In October the wines are harvested right next to the gites.

Even in October and November there are very nice days with up to 16-18C and full sun.


In the gite a guide to activities and tour suggestions can be found including a number of tourist brochures.

Blaye (15km) is located at the riverside of the Gironde and is dominated by the Citadelle, which is a manifique fortress which is a "must see". The tide can be seen all along the riverside of Gironde. A small ferry takes you from Blaye over the Gironde river to the Medoc peninsula, where the exceptional "route de chateau" can be followed and a number of the most famous wine groving castles can be seen. At some of them a wine tasting is offered.

Along the Gironde riverside there are several bird sanctuaries and for the ornithology interested this is a "must see".

Every day there is a market in one of the near by villages. In Montendre (12km) there is in July and August a weekly "night-market", where you can listen to music and eat together with the locals in the streets.
