Bordeaux

Surroundings

Chateau Julie is situated north of the Bordeaux region in the midst of the largest wine regions in the world. To the east of Julie lies the elegant Pomerol, which is adjoined by Saint-Emilion. After a short drive to the west, you can take the ferry in Blaye to the Medoc, Margeaux, Haut-Medoc and other regions on the west bank of the Gironde.

But also for non-wine tasters there is much to see in the immediate surroundings, such as the beautiful city of Bordeaux. Due to its strategic location on the rivers, this city amassed enormous riches in the past. The trade with England also contributed to this. These riches can be seen in the grand architecture of the city, along with Moorish and Arabian influences. Furthermore, there are museums and a very enjoyable and elegant shopping area. The city is easily accessible thanks to the tramway, which was built several years ago.

BlayeThe many mediaeval villages and towns in the region are also very inviting to visit. After every turn in the road, lies a new surprise, for example the old town of Sainte with its music festival and Saint-Emilion with its monasteries and churches.

In the immediate vicinity of the Chateau there are seven large golf courses. If you want to play golf, book an arrangement at Chateau Julie and we shall see to it that you will enjoy a game at one of these beautiful golf courses.

In addition, a visit to the dunes along the coast is certainly to be recommended. It is an area with the highest dunes in Europe. It features many nature reserves and vast forests surrounded by large lakes. Arcachon, with its large oyster farms, is located here. Treat yourself to a delicious oyster meal with Sancerre wine!

In short, there is something for everyone. Do not hesitate to spend a week in this special region of France. We should be pleased to advise you and, if you so desire, also organise complete trips for you. For this, see to the arrangements page.
