No need to get into a car to get provisions but a car is still essential for getting here and around the local sights. Great walks through the countryside and vines. Fantastic cycling routes including a 50kms cycle into Bordeaux along a disused converted railway line. Canoeing and kayaking on the river Dordogne at Pessac 2kms away. Please note - steep path and steps up to the property - open stone staircases inside. The tower is not suitable for children or anyone with reduced mobility. Wine tasting tours with local vineyards UNESCO world heritage village and wine centre of St Emilion is 20 minutes away.More
