Château du Sureau is located on the nine-acre Estate at the Elderberries on the outskirts of the small town of Oakhurst (with a population of approximately 14,000). In order to access the local shopping, it would be necessary to use your car. Oakhurst does offer supermarkets, drug stores and a few antique stores, as well as some art galleries (at Gallery Row). Please do not expect to find any fancy boutiques or clothing stores here; the few clothing stores we do have basically provide everything for the outdoors (both summer and winter apparel).
Nearby Mariposa (approximately 35 minutes west of Oakhurst) has a unique Front Street that portrays the era of the California Gold Rush. There, you will be able to find some antique stores, an art gallery and some clothing stores (just don't expect designer boutiques).
Fresno (approximately 40 miles south of Oakhurst) is a major city that houses several shopping malls with high-end stores and well known brands.
