The commune of Gradignan is in the department of Gironde in the south-west of France. Gradignan played significant roles in the political history of the region with its strong ties to the Duke of Aquitaine, later King of England. The area boasts a good number of castles, each with its own heritage and story. Gradignan has lush landscapes as it continues to maintain green lands even after its development over the years. The town did not have much in the way of infrastructure, but that has since changed as rail and road links improved. Gradignan also holds various events such as the Weekend of the Comic Strip and the Sport & Nature Festival. When in the town for business or relaxation, hiring a vehicle will let you visit the various parks and nature reserves at your pace. Enterprise has a branch in Gradignan where you can find the services you need.
