About the neighborhood
Quiet yet near many sites, the country farmhouse is set amongst the vines alongside the famous Dordogne river which said to the be the cleanest river in France. We are 15 minutes from St. Emilion and 7 minutes from Castilion la Bataille where the last battle of the 100 years war took place. The reenactment of that famous battle is held every year in Castillion. We are 1 hour from the gorgeous beaches of Cap Ferret on the Atlantic coast and approximately 50 minutes from the beautiful city of Bordeaux. St. Emilion, Bordeaux, Cotes de Castillion, Pommerol and Sauternes wines are all made nearby.
