Overview

Wedding Venue Recommended Pool Ideal for Kids All Bedrooms En-Suite Ideal for Parties Stag/Hen Allowed

Château Belles Vignes offers guests a unique stay in a XVIIIth century castle in the heart of a real wine estate, surrounded by vineyards, 170 ha of rolling hills and woodland and only 15km from the centre of charming and exciting Bordeaux.

Completely renovated in 2016, the château has 530 m² of comfortable living space with six ensuite bedrooms, and stands nestled in a huge park with a swimming pool and a private fishing pond. 

The castle’s small museum, with rare pieces, testifies to its long history whilst its more recent fruits can be sampled during a private wine tasting reserved for all guests. What could be better than staying on the estate that produces the fabulous wine you will drink with the delicious local delicacies of this gastronomic region!

The château is perfectly placed near Bordeaux and Saint Emilion, so this beautiful region is at its doorstep. The bike path along the property, takes you on a discovery of the varied landscapes of Entre-Deux-Mers, its vineyards, bastides and small villages, which are full of charming chapels and churches, with several stopovers possible at Créon and Espiet in particular.

For sports enthusiasts, there are a number of activities nearby, including two 18-hole golf courses within 15km and a tennis court. The spectacular sandy beaches of the Atlantic Coast as well as the Dune du Pilat (the highest in Europe) and the gorgeous seaside town of Arcachon (with its casino) are about 60km away.

Château Belles Vignes offers all the perfect ingredients for a memorable holiday, wedding or special event in this special part of France.

 
Good news! For a little extra, this property can be booked as a Vill’otel

Owner Profile

How long have you owned the property?
Since February 2013.

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
It is a wine property, we already had one and were looking for a second wine property in the Bordeaux area. The estate, set in a landscape of hills and woods (and vines!) is a breath of fresh air only 20 min drive from Bordeaux. The tasting of the wine produced definitely convinced us!

Are there any interesting stories in its history?

Château Belles Vignes in its current form, with its two pointed towers and large size, was built in 1780. But the estate was founded much earlier in 780, when the Count of Seguin, Administrator of the Emperor Charlemagne settled this agricultural land. There is a very old noble past tied to this land, and the impressive number of buildings shows that the property was dedicated to agriculture, livestock and wine.

Have you ever had any famous guests staying?
Not yet!

For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...
Really do?

Tasting our wines! Visit wineries and taste wines from different appellations.

Really eat?
A BBQ with a branch of vines, foie gras, oysters from Bassin d’Arcachon… French delicacies: paté, saucissons, jambons and sweet delicacies: cannelés, macarons de Bordeaux, … and so many more!

Really see?
Bordeaux and Saint Emilion Medieval Village, just 20 min drive from the Château. You will enjoy the medieval architecture as well as local products and wines from this prestigious appellation.

What insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
On arrival, you will enjoy a welcoming bottle of wine from our property, and will enjoy special rates on the wines from our properties. If you like wine and will visit Bordeaux, the Cité du Vin is a must-see! There is a bicycle path very close to the chateau so that you can discover the area by bike (we have some).
If you visit Bordeaux, public transport is a good option: the best is to park the car and take the tram, bus or even boat! You can also rent bikes from the city.
Our Rental is a self-catering rental, but in case you don’t want to cook we can call a chef!

    Beautiful Location and building. Perfect for a decadent weekend.

  • Enchanting Chateau

    Posted by John on 13/09/2017

    The Chateau was incrediblybeautiful and seems to have been completely renovated recently.

  • Great family location

    Posted by Alison H on 23/08/2017

    We had a wonderful time. The accommodation worked perfect for our party of three generations. Eric provided a brilliant welcome - friendly and informative. His presence throughout the week was unobtrusive, but very helpful when necessary.. The amenities were great and the newly-decorated bedrooms were gorgeous.

    The quality of the concierge service provided by Oliver's Travels was an added bonus that means we will book with them again!

  • Loved it!

    Posted by Charleston on 14/10/2016

    So happy to have spent a week at Chateau Belles Vignes! The house and the grounds were better and more beautiful than the photographs could show. The harvest had started which was fun,we were also able to walk the grounds and taste the grapes still on the vine - that was such a treat. We enjoyed the sunsets over the vineyard each evening! The location was perfect as it was about 1 hour from St Emilion and 1 hour from Arachon. Six bedrooms all with private shower, each having a different view and each being so comfortable, roomy and lovely!

  • An enchanting stay on the vineyard

    Posted by Mark on 22/09/2016

    There's nothing like staying at a chateau on a working winery and vineyard in Bordeaux! We had 6 couples and each of them enjoyed comfortable accommodations. Each bedroom had an attached bath/shower. The grounds were beautiful and the location was perfect- close enough to the city of Bordeaux and centrally located between St Emilion and the Medoc regions. We took the free tour of the winery and we really enjoyed their Carpe Diem wine which was fully stocked (for a charge) in the wine cabinet. We hope to return once again next year!

  • A truly wonderful place

    Posted by Michael on 13/10/2015

    We have just spent 5 nights at Château Belles Vignes. Travelling as a party of 4 middle-aged Australian couples we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in this beautiful place. The chateau includes 7 spacious bedrooms, beautifully furnished salons, a conservatory, billiards room, formal dining room, a pool and barbecue area and a lovely large kitchen. It truly is a beautiful place with stunning surrounds and proximity to Bordeaux and St Emilion. We found the rental fee generous in reality and the whole experience uplifted us all.
