Visiting the Médoc


Discovering the Médoc and its prestigious wines near the campsite.


The ferry between Royan and Le Verdon

In 20 minutes, the ferry between Royan and Le Verdon takes you to the Médoc Châteaux route.

From the boat, you can admire the ‘carrelets’ (traditional fishing huts on stilts) on the Charente-Maritime coast, as well as the Cordouan Lighthouse, and the edge of the Meschers cave dwellings...

All vehicles are allowed on board: bicycles, cars, motorhomes, etc. The crossing is made by 2 ferries, which make 18 return trips across the estuary in the summer and 6 return trips in the winter.

The Médoc Châteaux route

The Châteaux Route extends for 80 kilometres north of Bordeaux between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gironde Estuary.
It includes some of the most prestigious brands of red wine, many châteaux and unusual architecture. It is certainly one of the most beautiful wine tourism routes.
Enter the domains of the Grands Crus and Crus Bourgeois such as Pauillac, Saint-Estèphe, Saint-Julien, Margaux, Moulis... and meet passionate wine growers in a friendly environment while tasting exceptional wines.
