Pair-Non Pair Cave

The famous Pair-Non-Pair cave located in the commune of Prignac-et-Marcamps is one of the most remarkable prehistoric decorated caves belonging to the ancient Upper Paleolithic period. Its engraved bestiary, dating back more than 30,000 years, presents horses, ibexes, deer, mammoths and an exceptional figuration of a megaceros. Reservations are essential in high season.

Bourg-sur-Gironde and the vineyards

The Côtes-de-Bourg vineyard has been present in our land since Roman times. On the banks of the Gironde Estuary, in a hilly area known as the “Little Switzerland of Gironde”, how can you resist its charm and the appeal of its landscapes and privileged climate? At its heart, the small medieval village of Bourg-sur-Gironde and its numerous second-hand dealers.

Citadelle of Blaye

A quarter of an hour from Clos Marcamps, the Citadel of Blaye is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Marked by the History of France and by illustrious people, it invites you to discover magnificent panoramas over the largest estuary in Europe, the Gironde. It has kept intact the defence system put in place by Vauban with its 1.5 km of ramparts, its gates and its underground passages, as well as the buildings necessary for the proper functioning of a garrison. The Citadel promises a pleasant stroll through its narrow streets to meet the craftsmen, restaurateurs and shopkeepers.
