Situated at the Isle and Dordogne rivers’ confluence, Libourne is arguably the finest piece of real estate in Bordeaux. It is the gateway to the legendary Right Bank chateaux of Pomerol and St-Emilion, Bordeaux’s key producers of Merlot-dominated, velvety red wines. Yet Libourne’s charms extend far beyond its enviable location – the historic quarter is packed with attractions, not least its charming cafes and restaurants.

History records that Libourne was founded as a fortified town during the Hundred Years’ War between the forces of England and France; it became part of French territory in Gascony in the 15th century. Renowned for its magnificent bridge over the river Dordogne, Libourne also boasts a large Gothic church restored in the 19th century – an architectural masterpiece. Gastronomes will also love the weekend fresh food market at Place Abel Surchamp – the largest in the region!
