Buzet-sur-Baïse is a commune in the south-west of France, located in the department of Lot-et-Garonne. This village has a history based around the castle of Buzet. Both have evolved at the same time. That’s why you can discover the historical and natural heritage of the region with enthusiasts who want to share their culture and their know-how. Not far from Bordeaux and the ocean, trips around the region may be scheduled.
After having bought the Buzet Castle, the Buzet winemaker’s cooperative called on Concordia to create a renovation project around this property. This 10th century castle located high up in the village of Buzet, has incredible potential. That’s why this summer’s project would be to clean up and renovate certain rooms in the Castle so that they can be made accessible to the public. The association created by the cooperative aims to transform the site into an eco-citizen and eco-museum space.
