Bourg, Gironde, Nouvelle-Aquitaine
Situated on the outskirts and in view of the ancient village of Bourg-sur-Gironde 33710, twenty minutes from Bordeaux and just an hour from the Atlantic coast, this 80m2 fully equipped loft looks out over organic orchards and parkland, all 30 hectares entirely accessible on foot.

About the neighbourhood
This is Bordeaux vineyard country, with hill slopes & plantations right to the river Dordogne's banks. All around are historic villages & towns ( such as Saint Emilion). Bordeaux is just a stone's throw away...
And the Atlantic coast ( Arcachon one side, Royan the other) makes excellent days out.
Getting around
Some guests just get around on bikes that I provide, but a car's best. (There is a bus at the end of the road too ( Blaye - Bordeaux.) The railway station in Saint André de Cubzac is ten minutes away, with free parking.
Car advised
