What to see and do: near ... and a little bit further

The little city of Nérac :


Nérac stretches along the Baïse River, which is a charming and small navigable river. Built on the land of a Gallo-Roman villa, the city prospered in the Middle Ages and particularly during the Renaissance, when it became the favorite residence of the Albret family in the 16th century, and a Protestant stronghold, with a bright courtyard.

Henry III of Navarre, the future Henry IV, made it a place of political importance. He spent part of his youth there and forged his reputation as the “Green Gallant” (le "Vert galant"), leaving the legend of Fleurette (the gardener’s daughter who drowned in the waters of the Baïse due to a broken heart).


The visit of Nérac is based around its river "Baïse" (pronounced Bai-ise): 


from the esplanade of Saint Nicolas church, Pont-Neuf or the view from Petit Nérac, the old Bridge, and old tanneries which are now an art gallery, you'll find various restaurants, and the old boat "Henry" for a quiet cruise ...

A little further, there is only one wing of Henry IV’s castle remaining, a museum now.

The walk continues through the streets (Maison des Conférences, private mansions) and along the 3000 step alley, Parc Royal de la Garenne redesigned by Queen Margot, the wife of Henri IV.


Culture and sport : an equipment diversified and of quality is present all over.

Concert hall and shows, library, music and dance school; tennis courts, stadium of foot and rugby, golf ...


And you'll find productions of quality everywhere (AOC Buzet, the Armagnac appellation Tenareze and "melon of Gascogne", "Foies gras", garlic, tomatoes, strawberries...), and so ... gastronomy, of course;





The "Pays d'Albret" has a rich patrimonial heritage too (bastide of Vianne, Barbaste, Mezin, Bruch, Moncrabeau ...) : 


with a lot of castles, churches, and other patrimonial surprises.
