    Fascinating park and wells, nice tasting of pineau and cognac . No other wines. Beautiful castle but no admittance inside.

    Blue fountains are a nice surprise! Really unexpected and beautiful weather. Walk 30 minutes in this beautiful park shaded. € 5 entry. (Free entrance if you come to buy the Pineau and Cognac.) I recommend!

    In addition to the quality of this extraordinary and succulent, pineau pleasant and surprising discovery of the Castle and its Park. Blue fountains are impressive and enchanting... a bit mystical. The Park is very nice and fresh. The Loft watch the ancient importance of this area... it is understandable seeing the charms of the place that the clergy s vebait rest. Tasting in a room with a warm welcome. Note also the distillery with great stills of copper on the road to royan out of lorignac. It's worth also look!
