Château de Rouillac, which formerly belonged to the famous Baron Haussmann, is an ideal venue for corporate seminars. This estate full of history features the sorts of top-level modern services expected by professionals. Participants have an outstanding view of the 17th century manor house and its stables with draught horses and race horses that train every day.

Le Marathon des Châteaux du Médoc is known as the world’s longest marathon. The route is the official 42,195 km distance of course, but for some it is a lot longer thanks to the many distractions on the route.
