About the neighbourhood
Domaine de Coquelicot, an organic wine producer gives free wine tasting, as does Chateau de Gurson, both within walking distance . Chateau la Plante also gives a free tour and wine tasting, 10 minutes away by car. An experience not to be missed.
Lac du Gurson (3 minutes) - a very large open-air swimming lake, sandy beach, fountain, adventure playground and free pedaloes, restaurants and cafés.
Tennis at Lac de Gurson or St Martin de Gurson.
Villefranche de Lonchat (5 minutes), our nearest town, once a fortified English stronghold (Bastide). There is a handful of small shops, cash machine, and a weekly market in the town square. The baker will deliver fresh bread each morning, if requested: a lovely way to start the day! The Fête Cantonale, a great day out for all ages, will be held...
