ICB at the Chai au Quai & Château Franc la Fleur

May’s ICB “Flower Power” outing made the best of both worlds with a morning visit to the Chai au Quai in Castillon la Bataille for a bit of fascinating history, a tour of the beautifully renovated building and… a wine tasting!

ICB’s “Moveable Feast” by the sea

What better way to kick-off  la belle saison than with a giant platter of fresh local shellfish and a few bottles of ice cold white wine?

River Walk & Guinguette Lunch


Get out of town for a breath of fresh air and a little exercise with a ramble along the ancient chemin de halage on the banks of the Dordogne River. This is a flat, easy, well-traced trail that is largely under the shade of trees that are well over 100 years old. Following the walk, we’ll lunch at a traditional “guinguette” on the river’s edge.
