Where We Live
Caubon-St-Sauveur is a tranquil village in south-western France.
With a population of just 240, it has a 12th Century Church and a Mairie but little else, so is very peaceful for most of the year.
Nearby Lévignac-de-Guyenne (just 5km) has a convenience store, post office, bakery, doctor's surgery and pharmacy.
The popular tourist town of Duras, with shops, bars and restaurants and its castle to explore, is just 11km, or 13km in the other direction is Marmande with all mainstream facilities, motorway and rail links to Bordeaux, Toulouse and beyond.
There are markets virtually every day in the surrounding towns and villages, great for stocking up with all those French goodies for your holiday. They fill the streets with the lovely atmosphere you would expect "au marché". Night Markets take place through July and August, with music, food and a variety of stalls to browse.
For the culture vulture, the towns of Agen, Bergerac and Bordeaux are well worth a visit, as are the many bastide (fortified) villages that line the river valleys.
And then of course, there's the wine! We are surrounded by the vineyards of Cotes de Duras and Cotes Marmandais, with St Emillon, Graves and Bergerac appellations less than an hour away.
Finally, for that day at the seaside, the Atlantic beaches are just an hour and three quarters away.
This is just a taster of what is available. If there is a must-have element to your holiday, do get in touch and we will tell you whether it is nearby.
