Activity Overview
Enjoy a getaway in the heart of the Médoc to discover Margaux's Great Growth Châteaux! 

Drive along charming small roads that follow the banks of the Gironde Estuary and take the legendary “Route des Châteaux” towards Margaux. Open the door of a 1855 "Grand Cru" property and discover the secrets of wine-making. The visit will conclude with a wine tasting of course! 
Your cabriolet, equipped with a multimedia tablet-guide, is a storytelling car that offers quality commentaries all along the way. Relax, your tablet comes also with a GPS that will take you to your destination.   

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 cabriolets will be connected and their position indicated on the tablet.
