La Mairie, (the town hall) and the gardens of the ‘place’ had after consultation with the villages, recently had completed a major and very tasteful renovation supervised by the mayor Dr. Dechamps.
Painted ‘plien aire’ this is one of 2, the first original was acquired by the municipal where today it has pride of place in the public meeting room.
“La Mairie, Sauternes” was used as their Christmas cards by the municipal.
The south part of this peaceful village has a modern feel, an open “Place” with gardens, seats and various national flags all laid out to create a ‘place’ with space, light & calm with the elegant town hall standing in its own gardens.
The buildings have been thoughtfully renovated, today a worthy subject for painting and poetry.
This is the business end of the village.
Opposite La Mairie is the Maison de Sauternes, highly recommended for a visit. there with friendly staff and no obligation to buy you can begin to sample some of the 67 varieties of Sauternes, the precious ambers of Sauternes and if you are willing, engage in conversations about the surprising variety, an introduction to the wines of Sauternes.
