Many of Bordeaux’s most interesting sights can be found within easy driving distance of Genissac, so it is a great place to base yourself while you are in town. Two destinations that should be on every visitor’s list is the fabulous Chateau de la Dauphine and the ever-popular Chateau Ausone. And if your schedule allows, be sure to visit the Le Donjon du Roy and Eglise Monolithe.
Those who are traveling without kids will love an afternoon or night out at the Chateaux Beausejour and Langlais in Puisseguin.
Sports fans can spend an afternoon cheering on the Union Bordeaux Bègles rugby union team in winter and the Football Club des Girondins de Bordeaux soccer team at the iconic Chaban-Delmas Stadium, the sporting heart and soul of the city. When the full-time siren sounds, follow the throngs of local sports fans to the nearby pubs and relive the match highlights over a few drinks.
At the end of a long day enjoying the charms of Genissac, put up your feet and relax at one of the area’s hotels or serviced apartments. The Chateau Hotel & Spa Grand Barrail, Saint-Emilion, the Hotel Mercure Libourne Saint-Emilion and the Auberge de la Commanderie, Saint-Emilion are just some of the many great places to stay around here.
