The Richard Light­house

Bordeaux Wine Trip - - Bordeaux Wine Routes -

It is use­less to re­sist the charms of the Richard Light­house: its his­tory, its quant oys­ter-farm­ing mu­seum, the walks along the em­bank­ment and its mag­nif­i­cent views. At the top of the light­house or from the fish­er­men’s huts- ac­ces­si­ble de­pend­ing on the tide- you have an ex­tra­or­di­nary panorama over the Gironde, the Char­entes coast and the pold­ers that spread out far away un­der your ad­mir­ing eyes.

Château Lynch-bages is start­ing a new chap­ter in its his­tory; its tech­ni­cal in­stal­la­tions are due to un­dergo ren­o­va­tion in a project that is be­ing han­dled by the Amer­i­can ar­chi­tect Chien Chung Pei. The es­tate will be closed for tours for ap­prox­i­mately 2 and a half years.
