  • ACCESSIBILITY

The house is split-level and is unsuitable for people with wheelchairs.

COAST/BEACH

surf

 

Arcachon and its beaches are 1 hr 30 mins away, including the Dune de Pyla, the tallest sand dune in Europe, with lots of water sports on offer. On the other side of the Arcachon Bay there are the long white beaches of Cap Ferret (2 hrs). Biarritz is 2 1/2 hrs away if you are keen on your surfing.

 

 

GOLF

The nearest golf course is a ten hole course 20 minutes away in Marmande. Within an hour’s drive there is the beautiful 27 hole course at Chateau Vigiers toward Bergerac (50 mins), an 18 hole course at Golf de Casteljaloux to the south (40 mins), another at Golf d’Albret toward Agen (1 hr), and another 18 hole course at Golf des Graves et du Sauternais outside Langon (40 mins).


 

HOW TO GET THERE

plane2Since the property is in the countryside it is essential to have a car, even though bikes and trains are great for day trips. The nearest airports (both with car hire) are Bordeaux Merignac (1 hr) and Bergerac (1 hr 10 mins). Toulouse airport is also 2 hrs away by car. The TGV travels from Paris to Bordeaux, where there are frequent trains to Marmande, our local rail hub.

DISTANCES

Bordeaux, Bergerac and Agen are all about an hour away by car. Marmande (20 mins) is the nearest town for shopping, although there is a local supermarket with tabac and post office (3min). Many of the local Bastides (ancient fortified villages), such as Monségur (10), Duras (15), Eymet (45) and Bazas (45), hold market days throughout the week. The wine Mecca of St Emilion and the Sauternes region are 45 mins away and the Bas-Armagnac area is about an hour to the south.


FURTHER DETAILS

cycle

Local marketsMarkets are a great place to meet local artisans, try local food and wine and pick up souvenirs for friends and family. The nearest bank and supermarket are in Monsegur (10min), although there are larger supermarkets along the road into Marmande (20 min). There are also boutique clothes stores in Marmande, but it would be worth visiting Bordeaux for great shopping, culture and food and wine (1hr).


wineWe also recommend visiting local vineyards to pick up both great deals and a new appreciation for the work that goes into each bottle (markets and wine cellars can offer some good leads).
