The medieval town of Saint Macaire


Beautiful autumn colours along the Canal des Deux Mers


The Gironde

Attractions of the surrounding Gironde region include the wonderful beaches of Arcachon near Bordeaux, a Unesco world heritage site, and the famous chateaux of St Emilion and the Médoc.

We are also just around the corner from the famous area of Sauternes and there is an eighteen-hole golf course ten minutes drive from the gîte.

At all seasons of the year the picturesque region provides walks, visits, wine tastings in chateaux and the savouring of good French cuisine – or you could simply relax in the beautiful surroundings.
