Château de la Sablière Fongrave

The property lies on a line of clay-limestone hills separating the Garonne and Dordogne river basins, in the commune of Gornac, 5 kilometers from Château de l’Orangerie.

Sablière Fongrave refers to the limestone hill on which the estate is built. The term “Fongrave”, meanwhile, is an evolution of the original name: “Fongrane”, mentioned on the 1829 Napoleonic cadastre, which is a contraction of “Fon” (meaning “fountain” in Gascon) and “Grane” (“large” in Gascon). In 2014, Gallo-Roman remains were found during surveys carried out near the property.
