Thursday 22nd October 2020, 2.00pm

Come and join us for a lovely walk along the beautiful L’eau Bourde at Gradignan.

The start of the walk is at Prieure de Cayac which is a gite for travellers along the route Saint-Jacque de Compostelle. The walk is approximately 5 to 6 kms long.

As we walk along the footpath we pass several watermills where there are bridges which cross the river to the footpath at the other side, this means that walkers have the option to decide how far they wish to walk and can cut short the walk. The footpath is level and well defined. As always your dogs are welcome to come along too.

Meeting Location and Time

We will meet in Gradignan at 2 pm in the car park in front of the restaurant Le Domaine des Tentations, 4 Chemin des Moulins, 33170 GRADIGNAN (There is a florist shop next door to the restaurant) and just beyond the restaurant is the Prieure de Cayac a beautiful old building complete with turrets.


There is limited parking in front of the restaurant alternative parking is available close just across the road from the Prieure de Cayac.
