Strategically located on the right bank of the Dordogne, there is an undeniably fairytale-quality to Castillon-la-Bataille. It has played a pivotal role throughout French history – the area was the site of the last battle during the Hundred Years’ War between France and England. In honor of the role Castillon played during the conflict, the town was renamed “Castillon-la-Bataille” in 1953 – the 500th anniversary of the battle. Today this quiet, unassuming town mixes the cultural and hedonistic in equal measure. Its location on the banks of the river is magical, while local culinary specialties and the excellent wines of the Cotes de Castillon appellation ensure that epicureans never leave disappointed.
