About the Area

La Tuilerie is situated in a very pretty hamlet, but the place for everyday shopping and services is the village of Gensac, which is just 4km away. Gensac has a small supermarket, some great restaurants, a couple of rural hotels, and 24-hour emergency medical facilities. It also has a tourist information office, which is a good first stop for visitors.

There are châteaux dotted around the countryside, many within easy reach and well worth a visit. A trip to the market is also essential: the town of St Foy La Grande, 12 kilometres away, has an extensive and exciting market every Saturday. This town on the Dordogne river is a good site for a day trip, with its many bars, restaurants, galleries and antique shops. River trips can also be arranged at St Foy, and are a great way to explore the Dordogne.

15 kilometres to the west is the typically French market town of Duras, which is dominated by the imposing Châteaux Duras. It also has a fine traditional market and a central square, with many shops and open air restaurants.

Bordeaux is just an hour’s drive away. This historic and exciting city is the hub of the Bordeaux wine region, and offers a great variety of cultural wealth. Old Bordeaux is an endlessly fascinating city of open squares and 18th and 19th century architecture. Food lovers will relish the magnificent wine and cuisine in this capital of gourmet pleasures.

The Bordeaux vineyards are simply endless. Among Bordeaux’s oldest are the vineyards of Cotes de Bourg and Blaye, which produce a supple and robust wine influenced by the sunny ocean climate. The vineyards of Entre-Deux-Mers, famous for their dry white wines, are nestled in lush valleys between the Garonne and Dordogne rivers. Médoc is one of the world’s most famous wine regions, with numerous châteaux attesting to its historic wealth. But perhaps the most enchanting village of all is Saint-Émilion, where prestigious vineyards and châteaux surround the medieval city.

Eastwards from La Tuilerie lies the Dordogne region, which is full of places to visit. The town of Bergerac, 30km away, has a beautifully preserved area along the banks of the river, with numerous restaurants, stunning architecture, and an exciting festival every summer.

Nearby is the impressive Château Monbazillac, where the sweet wine-tasting sessions make it well worth visiting. Heading South-east, Lot-et-Garonne is ideal for a leisurely drive through the countryside to discover some of the quaint villages, market towns and places of interest. At Marmande on the Garonne river, there are facilities for all types of watersports, as well as relaxing riverside restaurants.
