Alba Gite Pool


Gîte Accommodation in the Gironde Region

Welcome to 'Alba', a former small farm in the village of Castets-en-Dorthe near Langon in the Gironde region of South West France, where we offer gîte and B&B holiday accommodation.

The gîtes are in the grounds of our property which is on the edge of the village. There are two gîtes, Le Cottage and Le Séchoir. There is also an apartment for B&B (La Vie en Rose), which can be joined onto one of the gîtes (Le Séchoir) to accommodate a larger group.

There is an air-conditioning and heating system throughout. Parking is in the courtyard which is enclosed with a remote-controlled gate. A two-car garage is also at your disposal.

The pleasantly rural village of Castets-en-Dorthe sits on a high ridge above the junction of the Canal des Deux Mers and the Garonne river – with fine views over this famous wine-growing area.

From the bottom of the garden, you can see the canal and a path leads down to it. A cycle path runs along the bank of the canal where once horses did the job of pulling the barges. If you feel fit enough, you could cycle or walk all the way to the Mediterranean coast.

Castets-en-Dorthe is easily accessible from the A62 motorway (exit N°3 Langon) and is well placed for visiting 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.
