A charming destination in beautiful countryside, this is your chance to soak up the unique ambience of the South West of France. Situated at Point de Grave, where water from the Atlantic meets the gushing Gironde estuary, Le Verdon will appeal to you if you love the great outdoors or fine wines. Offering a beguiling mix of forests and beaches, dunes and hiking paths there's plenty to do if you fancy an independent, active day ashore.
The Fort of Verdon and the Cordouan Lighthouse (the oldest in France, visited by boat) are both local sights. Further afield, the Bordeaux wine region, covering some 270,000 acres, beckons.
