Situated in the South West of France, just a stone's throw away from the world renowned vineyards of Saint Emilion and Pomerol, settled amongst the rolling valleys of the Dordogne, Chateau de Sanse is the perfect base for you to discover this culturally rich and fascinating region.
Whilst the area is primarily famed for the deep, full bodied red wines produced here, its reputation has also been built from its captivating history, its wonderful food, the diversity of its landscapes and the warm, welcoming nature of its population.
