Reviews for Chateau Flacelliere Keep

Chateau Flacelliere Keep Reviews

  • Wonderful week

    Posted by David H on 18/09/2015

    Many thanks for making our stay such a memorable time we all enjoyed your wonderful chateau and the warm welcome and help you both gave us all.Even the weather was good to us ! The birthday meal and setting was superb . Thank you again.


  • A French Castle, Now Open To All

    Posted by Danny Hakim in the New York Times on 09/07/2015

    As bed-and-breakfasts go, it cuts a striking figure, with its towers and medieval tapestries and ancestral portraits, set among trees imported from around the world in the early 1800s, including American cedars and sequoias.


    The castle is filled with upholstered chairs, chandeliers, richly decorated wallpaper and fancy clocks. There was a statuette of a tiger under an oil painting of the Madonna and Child, flanked by Chinese urns. In one room there was a rather severe-looking portrait of an ancestor, Stanslas Vignial, the president of the royal court in Bordeaux in the mid-1800s, imposing in black-and-crimson jurist robes.

  • Beautiful chateau in lovely surrounding

    Posted by Spottymuldoon on 09/05/2014

    15 of us stayed here for a week 9 adults and 6 kids

    Absolutely faultless in every way

    The downstairs apartment was totally accessible with a large wet room and a small kitchenette

    The main kitchen had everything we needed for our stay and all rooms were sufficient to house 4 families/couples

    Our hosts were helpful if somewhat aloof which suited us fine

    And even though there were guests staying in the rest of the château it was very quiet at night

    The pool area was perfect and each day we ate great fresh food in various parts of the castle grounds without problem or hindrance

    The gardens are superb with some huge trees and lovely walks

    All in all a great place to spend some time with family and friends .
