At the wheel of your storytelling convertible buggy, you will explore Margaux’s famous great growth Châteaux at your own rhythm, the UNESCO-listed Blaye Citadel and the medieval city and vineyards of Saint-Emilion.

Drive along charming small roads that follow the banks of the Gironde estuary, lined with numerous “Chartreuses” houses that were former holiday homes. Take the legendary “Route des Châteaux” all the way to Margaux. Open the door of an 1855 “Grand Cru” Château and to a lovely family property, discover the secrets of wine-making and taste the wine.

Take the ferry across the Gironde estuary to reach Blaye and its famous Citadel. You will stay at a charming guest house for the night, with breakfast included. Start the day with a free visit of the Blaye Citadel, then take a drive along the Dordogne river through the Blaye then Fronsac vineyards, where the beautiful Château de la Rivière will open its doors for a wine-tasting-visit.

Spend the night in a Saint-Emilion wine property and enjoy a wine-tasting visit there. Go admire the legendary Petrus, Cheval Blanc and Angelus Châteaux near Pomerol. Later enjoy a guided tour of the underground monuments of Saint-Emilion and its famous monolithic church.

Your buggy, equipped with a multimedia tablet-guide, is a storytelling vehicle that offers quality commentaries all along the way. Relax, your tablet also comes with a GPS that will take you to your destination.  The vehicle is also equipped with a hard case for your luggage as well as with rain ponchos in case of rain.

Would you like to make a stop at an open-air café along the river or for a photo opportunity? Great local places are indicated throughout your trip. You are guided, but free to make stops or detours as and when you please, according to suggestions offered by your tablet.

Bring along some friends for an even more enjoyable experience. You can book several vehicles, and thanks to the “flotilla” mode, your buggies are connected together and their position indicated on the tablet.
