For buying and selling property in Gensac

Gensac - a great area for wine...

The village of Gensac lies in one of the world's most famous wine regions in south-west France, overlooking the Durèze and Dordogne river valleys. Set in pretty countryside between the great cities of Bordeaux and Bergerac, the little village is a peaceful oasis in a busy world, a place unspoiled yet still able to provide for the everyday needs of a modern lifestyle. The cobbled streets are narrow and tranquil, the mediaeval buildings mellow and weathered by the sun that has shone down on them since the 14th century.

Traditional yet full of life

Gensac is small but well equipped with all the basics for a modern life. There are a few small shops, including a boulangerie, so you can be truly French and walk home every morning with a baguette tucked under your arm and some warm croissants ready for breakfast. The village has a Spar supermarket, which supplies a good range of groceries and household requirements, cafés, a pharmacy, a post office and a tourist office which will be able to tell you of all the local cultural and leisure facilities and events. There is also a small weekly market held in Gensac.

Wining and dining

Gensac is known for having a couple of very good restaurants, and it goes without saying that in this village you will find a superb wine list! It is also worth visiting the wine caves, co-operatives and domains around the area, as these will usually offer you opportunities to taste and learn about their wines.

Things to do around the area

There are tennis courts and leisure lakes (three, no less!) close to the village, and plenty of activities taking place. You can go horse-riding, cycling, walking, swimming and fishing and golf addicts will be pleased to find that there are some good courses accessible too. At certain times of year, mainly in the summer months, there are various fêtes and festivals taking place, and there are some wonderful bastide towns to visit. Try taking a look at nearby St Foy le Grande, or spend a day or two discovering the cities of Bordeaux and Bergerac.

How to get there

Bordeaux and Bergerac are both within easy reach of Gensac. Bordeaux airport is served by British Airways, flybe, bmibaby, Aer Lingus and easyJet, while Bergerac is served by flybe and Ryanair. If you prefer the train, you can take the TGV from Paris and arrive in Libourne in around three hours after a swift and relaxing journey.
