Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Gironde

Municipality of nearly 3,500 inhabitants, in Gironde, in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region, Arsac takes place about twenty kilometers from the very touristy city of Bordeaux. It is located in the heart of the Médoc, not far from Parempuyre, Blanquefort and Soussans.

Populated since the Gallo-Roman era, the territory of Arsac has developed over the centuries, becoming dependent on the chatellenie of Blanquefort in the Middle Ages. Full of charm and authenticity, the town now benefits from the economic aura of Bordeaux and more widely from the tourist attraction of a region which has been able to highlight all its architectural and natural assets.

Dynamic and friendly, the city of Arsac also enjoys a certain reputation in the sector thanks to its wine producers, some of whom benefit from the Margaux appellation.

Things to see and do

Listed as an historic monument, the Saint-Germain church is one of the jewels of the municipality of Arsac. Built in the 12th century and partly altered in the 19th century, it reveals an architecture typical of the region.

Arsac also presents several wine estates, like the Château d'Arsac which has benefited for part of its vines from the Margaux appellation since the 2000s, as has the Château du Tertre. Founded in the 16th century, the latter covers around fifty hectares, offering a blend of grape varieties that has earned it worldwide fame.
