The South of France has a magnetic attraction for travelers from its picturesque villages, its Atlantic Ocean beaches, equestrian pursuits, world-famous vineyards, and its proximity to the Pyrénées. Add to that our stunning and elegant château and the perfect French holiday has been created.
The location of Chateau Robert in the Aquitaine is ideal for visits to the Atlantic coast and the cities of Biarritz, Saint-Jean-de-Luz, Bayonne and San Sebastian in Spain and for exploring the delightful Basque and Béarn countryside with visits to the wonderful towns of St-Jean-Pied-de-Port, Salies-de-Béarn and Oloron-Ste-Marie.
Being located near the ancient market towns of St-Sever and Eugenie-les-Bains, which lie along the river Adour on the border of the Landes and Gers, there is a lot to explore nearby as well. St-Sever’s sidewalk cafes, many restaurants and of course its frequent festivals and bullfighting extravaganza offer heritage and charm throughout the year. Go back in time and visit the UNESCO listed Abbey, the nearby Treasury or join a guided historic city tour and explore all that St-Sever has to offer.
The ancient bastide town of Grenade sur l’Adour, just ten minutes away, offers a further sampling of restaurants, cafes and shops hidden in its quaint narrow streets leading up to the central square with its renowned Gothic church and along the Adour river bank.
Nearby Mont-de-Marsan dating back from the 12th century, eludes its cosmopolitan past as the center of the Armagnac trade and its ornate merchant houses are a reminder of the days the city was in its prime. Restaurants, shops and all urban conveniences can all be found in abundance and the city’s proximity to one of Europe’s largest forests makes it perfect for a range of natural pursuits.
Your visit to the Landes is not complete without a visit to France’s premier spa town Dax, which is within a short drive from the Chateau. Dating back to Roman days, the town is renowned for its legendary mineral water. When visiting Dax be sure to also visit Musee de Borda and the Cathedrale Notre Dame.
