From the inevitable visit of the Vauban Citadel to the prehistoric caves of Pair-Non-Pair, Blaye and the surrounding region are full of architectural treasures.

 

Discover the testimonies of history by walking through the historic Romanesque churches in many villages, as well as the Gallo-Roman villas in Plassac, the artistic works of the first humans and the military genius of Vauban.

 

The Citadel of Blaye and the Lock of the estuary have been inscribed on the prestigious list of the UNESCO world heritage since 2008.

 

 

The Blaye vineyards derive their strength and character from the Gironde estuary. The Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux appellation encompasses some 6,000 hectares and includes 450 winegrowers.

The wines of Blaye are made predominantly from Merlot (red wines) and Sauvignon Blanc (white wines).  The red wines have a deep color and fruity overtones that makes them ideal for sharing with family and friends.

 

Between the estuary and outdoor activities, the islands of the estuary offer you the opportunity to take a “break” away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The bird park Terre d’Oiseaux immerses you in the marshes and its charming small ports. In addition, there are many hiking trails along the vineyards and the forests, and the cycle route of the canal des deux mers crosses the region.

For sports enthusiasts, the Domaine des Loisirs du Moulin Blanc welcomes you all year long!
