We are so lucky in Saint-Christophe-de- Double to have an excellent geographic location. Our village is situated at the very end of the Gironde and Dordogne county‘s borders, between Bordeaux and Périgueux, not far away from the prestigious vineyards of Saint-Emilion and Pomerol, and not much further, toward the North, from those of Cognac. The current territorial reform will even place us at the center of a huge Aquitaine region, which, rich of an exceptional diversity, will extend from the Limousin to the Pyrénées.
We are especially lucky to enjoy a lifestyle that many are envious of. The banner of our website (www.saintchristophededouble.fr) « Entre étangs et forêts » (“Between lakes and woods”) emphasizes the rural character and the attractiveness of our local territory. Most of the time the weather is mild and sunny. Fresh air, quietness and high-leveled gastronomy are appreciated daily. What more could we ask for ?
All those factors together contribute to attract new citizens, and you are some of them ! The City Council is so glad to welcome you within our community of nearly 700 inhabitants, as you help to increase the vitality of our village. In the same mind, the local associations’ representatives join us, keeping an ancient tradition of friendliness and hospitality.
Together we will ensure you do not feel out of the communal life or somewhat confused by this organization and these rural habits you chose to share with us. The municipal services will provide you with all the necessary information, study each of your particular expectations with a benevolent attention, and, if you want to consult the senior citizens, they will talk about this country where it feels good to live. All you have to do is to make you feel at home and fit in to the communal life, as example by participating to our associational activities, or to our volunteer ones, for which all the skills and goodwill we always welcome.
Solidarity is not an empty word. It depends on all of us, on the good relationships we have with each other, that the township remains a heaven of peace and welfare. The City Council always gives its support to the initiatives aiming at a better living together. But it also has to count on everyone‘s goodwill.
Once again welcome, dear friends, and thank you for your contribution to our local life.
