When night falls, the ghosts of the Château de Panloy come back to life and haunt the corridors of the old house. Wandering through the dark corridors of the castle, you will have the mission of reconstructing the family genealogy, meeting strange, funny and frightening characters who will tell you, if they are willing, about their past life. Will you have the courage to come and discover Panloy at night? A friendly cocktail will allow you to recover from your emotions afterwards. For the Haunted Evenings you enter the castle in groups of about twenty people. Please note that this activity is not recommended for children under 7 years old.

The Caviar and Sturgeon Inn-Museum is a place of cultural activities that tells the story of French caviar and the European sturgeon from the estuary during the first half of the 20th century.
The old sturgeon inn and the village of St Seurin d'Uzet are historic sites for the preparation and tasting of caviar from the Gironde, the first caviar produced in France in the 1920s, thanks to the Maison Prunier, a famous Parisian restaurant and historic operator for over 50 years. This is what still earns the village the name of "caviar capital" in France.

Every year on 9 May, Europe Day celebrates peace and unity in Europe. It is the anniversary of the "Schuman Declaration". On this day in 1950, Robert Schuman, then French Foreign Minister, proposed in a historic speech in Paris a new form of political cooperation for Europe that would make war between the continent's nations unthinkable.
Its ambition was to create a European institution that would bring together and manage coal and steel production. A treaty establishing such a body was signed less than a year later. Robert Schuman's proposal is considered the birth certificate of what is now the European Union.
