we have just returned from a stay at chateau claribes. Helen and Nick were perfect hosts. Everything was just as advertised and we had a wonderful time.

About the neighborhood
The pretty village of Gensac is within walking distance of Chateau de Claribes, along a very quiet country lane or through the vineyards, or 5 minutes by car. In the village you will find a butcher; baker; small grocery store; a weekly market; pharmacy; and two restaurants, bank machine and doctor - everything for daily needs! The village hosts a huge brocante in August, a music festival in July, and night markets throughout the summer where locals and visitors enjoy meeting up to enjoy good food from local producers with delicious local wine.
Getting around
Most people prefer to explore the area by car. Car hire is available at the airports and mainline railway stations. If you prefer to explore by bike, we can provide you with contact details for local bike hire, and/or provide you with a safe place to store your bikes. The nearest station is Velines, on the main line between Bordeaux and Bergerac/Sarlat, so it's possible to explore the pretty towns of St Emilion, Castillon, Bergerac, and Sarlat without a car.
