The area is steeped in history and there are charming bastide towns with open air markets, Roman churches, and the battle of Castillon is re-enacted every summer.
Saint Emilion is a world heritage site and really worth a visit. Not only is the architecture and honey coloured stone so beautiful, but there is a very special atmosphere here. It is home to some of the best restaurants in the area. There is a beach on the lake at Blasimon, several golf courses less than 30 minutes away and a cycle track from Bordeaux to Sauveterre along the former railway track. Enjoy the region's varied festivals and night markets during the summer months sampling local delicacies and trying the wines. Many of the wine chateaux will let you visit and taste their wines. Bordeaux has some wonderful shopping too!
