Location description from owner

The Nouvelle-Aquitaine region

3 UNESCO World Heritage Sites within a 30 minute drive: Bordeaux, St Emilion and Blaye Citadel..

A 15 minute drive to the Bordeaux tram terminus. Take a relaxing journey into the center of Bordeaux.

Well over 2000 years old the town has a wealth of architectural gems: cathedrals, museums, 18th century houses and riverside quays. You can enjoy a stroll along the lovely avenues & quaint, narrow streets. Marvel at the glorious churches or cruise the Garonne River.

Attractions include the Grand Theatre, the Place de la Bourse and the stunning Eglise Notre Dame. Bordeaux also boasts nine public museums.

Rue Ste-Catherine
This entirely pedestrianized street is over a kilometer long and offers some of the best shopping in Bordeaux. It is one of the oldest streets in town, dating back to the Roman period.
Grand Theater
This is the city's cultural icon, built between 1773 and 1780 as a testament to the growing prosperity of Bordeaux's emerging bourgeoisie. This glorious building is one of the last remaining 18th century theaters in the world. The theater is still used as an opera house and performance hall.
Cathedral of St Andre
The largest church in Bordeaux. It contains some impressive 13th century sculptures and a 47 meter belfry tower, built in the 15th century.

Bordeaux wine region
Bordeaux is the red wine capital of the world. It is truly a wine lover's Mecca, boasting over fifty appellations and nearly 10,000 chateaux. Discover first-hand the sophistication and exquisite appeal of the world's finest wines: Lafite, Mouton, Latour, Pomerol, St Emilion Graves, Fronsac and many others.

There is a wine Cooperative in the next village where you can taste and buy many local wines. at a very reasonable rate.

St Emilion is a 30 minutes drive. This medieval town stands proudly at the top of a hill overlooking the Dordogne valley.

It is an incredible open-air museum. The most surprising remains are with no doubt its underground monuments: galleries covering more than 70 ha. (about 150 acres) and the breathtaking monolithic church, dug out of solid limestone.

The Medoc is about 45 minutes. There you can follow the wine trail around vineyards of Margaux, Rothschild, St Julien, Lynch Barges, Pichon Longueville…

The Atlantic coast - one hour.
Arcachon
A lively seaside town on the bay of Arcachon with many restaurants, shops, a Casino, a fisherman's and sailing port that can harbour almost 2500 boats, and the choice of a large variety of sports and cultural pastimes.

Lacanau
Situated in the heart of the Médoc peninsula, Lacanau is both an immense beach (more than 14 km) on the Atlantic coast and a vast 2000 ha lake.

Dune of Pyla
The highest dune in Europe. This dune reaches a height of 107m. At this summit, the view is spectacular with the ocean coast, the inlet of the Bay, the large pine forest and, when the sky is very clear, the Pyrenees.

Le Porge
More than 13 kilometres of long, golden, beautiful and wild beaches. Eat al fresco in small village of restaurants between the dunes and the pine forest.

A visit to Cognac's brandy houses is a must, for the kid's aqua land and the zoo at Royan covering 30 acres & 1600 animals are great days out.
