The vineryard is planted on very deep gravelly soil with typical
varieties of the region: Cabernet Sauvignon (80%), Merlot (16%),
Cabernet Franc (3 %), and Petit Verdot (1 %). Cabernet Sauvingon

of Château Cheval Blanc and decided to move to Saint-Emilion. He
draws on his culinary expertise to personally oversee the tour’s daily

The age of the vines (some plots were planted in 1901, 1902, 1934
and 1946!) and this outstanding chalky-clay soil produce a distinctive

The Arcachon Bay
8:30 am: Meet your English speaking licensed guide driver in the

Start your day with the famous Pyla Dune, the highest sand dune in
Europe.
Rising 107 meters above sea level, 100 to 117m high, 2.7km long,
500m wide, 60 million cubic meters of sand grains, Grand Site
National since 1978.
Once you reach the top, all your efforts are rewarded by breathtaking
panoramic views over the whole of the Arcachon Basin. Down below,
stretching between ocean and Bassin lies the vast Arguin Sandbank,
where a variety of species of seabirds live together in perfect
harmony.
The visit continues with The Bird’s Island, nowadays, as its name
suggests, this strip of land is a birds’ paradise. It has been a listed
Natural Site since 2008, and almost 300 species have been observed
there, including egrets, Eurasian curlews, moorhens, teals, ducks and
barnacle geese, all of which arrive each year to spend time
surrounded by stretches of heath and Japanese acacia. Only a few
wooden huts bear witness to the presence of mankind.
Dogs admitted on boat (supplement).
The Arcachon lagoon is one of the major European centers for oyster
production, covering almost 1800ha/4447acres of the lagoon’s
surface. The Bassin is the main regional breeding centre and supplies
seed oysters or spats to other oyster beds in Brittany, Normandy,
Languedoc and the Netherlands.
Stop in one of the typical oyster village with its narrow streets and its
oyster huts: taste oysters around a glass of white wine! Keep on our
boat ride to look at the long and thin promontory of Cap Ferret at the
entrance to Arcachon lagoon. The area has been developed today in
a seaside resort, with holiday villas scattered among the pines.
5:30 pm: drop off at your hotel.
July 15th: Caves of Lascaux and Terrasson gardens
09:00 am: pick up at your hotel by your English-speaking guide-driver
and drive to Lascaux.
You will discover the caves of Lascaux II. This cave of medium size
for the region extends for about 200 metres and is made up of
alternating chambers which are more or less circular, and passages.
An old legend says, there was an underground passage from the
Montignac castle under the Vezer and the Lascaux estate with hidden
treasures. Four teen-agers were looking for these treasures when on
the 12th of September 1940 they had found a small entrance into a
cave which concealed real riches - magnificent rock paintings dated
by the late Palaeolithic. These are depictions of different animals (
horses, bulls, deer, ibex, as well as members of the cat family, a bear,
a rhinoceros and even an imaginary creature commonly known as the
" unicorn"), and unlike figures in other caves which, at first sight, look
static and almost lifeless, those in Lascaux are full of motion and
harmony. Abbot Glory had been working in the cave from 1952 up to
1963 and found more than 2000 depictions on its walls.
These paintings are accompanied by enigmatic symbols.
The organic debris found in the Lascaux cave has been dated at
around 15000 years BC, which ties in with other finds that have been
attributed to the early Magdalenian period.
There is a very interesting fact about the drawings: the hunts were
drawn on the wall like a comic strip. The story of the hunt goes from
the left to the right, until the prey is captured. These pictures were
obviously used to tell stories.
In the afternoon,
Visit Les Jardins de l'Imaginaire in Terrasson-la-Villedieu, one of
the most famous contemporary gardens in France at the moment.
It is designed by the French-American landscape architect Kathryn
Gustafson. The concept of this garden appeals to all the senses and
includes rose gardens, water gardens with beautiful willows, and
fountains decorated with ferns.
The Jardins de l'Imaginaire will lead your imagination to randomly
stroll around the 13 thematic gardens: the sacred forest, the vegetal
tunnel, the elementary gardens, the terraces, the green theatre, the
winds' axis, the perspectives, the water gardens, the rose garden, the
springs' path, the green sculptures, the rivers, the greenhouse.
By 5:00 pm: drop off at your hotel near Sarlat.
July 16th : Cooking class in Sarlat
