Reviews for Chateau Bella

Chateau Bella Reviews

  • Idyllic holiday for 2 families

    Posted by Paula Leach on 27/08/2014

    It was quite a long journey driving via the Eurotunnel from the UK to the Chateau which is near Chalais and Aubeterre in the Southern Bordeaux region, but it is relatively easy driving and very much worth it! We were suitably impressed when we arrived through the narrow lanes of the local villages. An impressive and beautiful Chateau with side annex to sleep 8 - perfect for our two families of 4 with children aged between 5 - 9. The children loved having their own space and bathrooms upstairs and the living space was comfortable and clean. Alongside the stunning views, the most impressive aspect of the accommodation however is the heated swimming pool - at 27 degrees it is so pleasant! We had exclusive use of the pool and the comfortable loungers. We also had exclusive use of the back of the property with extensive garden, patio area with comfortable wicker seating and large outdoor table and BBQ. The children loved the pool, the space to play outside and the games room in the cellar. They fed the horses too. We visited local towns such as Chalais and Aubeterre but generally self catered with local shops just 5 minutes away. We ate well, relaxed and enjoyed the peace and serenity of the wonderful location!
