Dear Jane, your home is absolutely beautiful and the setting just idylic. We very much appreciated your attention to detail, I hope the orchids survived as we did not realize they were real until the blooms started dropping off! We could have easily spent more time in the area, there…

Overview of Chateau Emirol

What Oliver loves…

  • Fantastic location close to so many attractions - the world heritage sites of St Emilion and Bordeaux are on your doorstep.
  • Great, family run restaurant serving local cuisine within walking distance.
  • Private tennis coach for individual or group tuition can be arranged.
  • The owner used to work in the hotel industry so all the rooms are kept spotless!

What you should know…

  • The pool uses salt water chlorination.

The Chateau is a unique and rare find given its fantastic location. Built from traditional girondine stone in 1818, Chateau Emirol is located in the Fronsadais wine territory. The warm, quiet, inviting surroundings of the Chateau come complete with a tennis court and swimming pool. The hillside setting of the Chateau provides you with great views of the Dordogne, as well as the surrounding working vineyards. With direct access from the Chateau grounds, the undulating hills of Fronsac countryside will appeal to those who enjoy hiking, cycling, fishing and horse-riding.

Chateau Emirol is superbly positioned, as it neighbours the world heritage site of St Emilion and the adjoining world renowned vineyards of Pomerol. The  bustling, lively market town of Libourne, which hosts the most wonderful markets three mornings a week, is less than 10 minutes by car. The cosmopolitan and elegant city of Bordeaux is less than half an hours drive away. The unspoiled Atlantic coastline is also within very easy reach. For wine lovers, The Haut Medoc and Sauterne regions are both within a reasonably short drive.

For dining out, opposite the Chateau's gates is a traditional local restaurant overlooking a lake and the surrounding woodlands. Libourne and St Emilion have a vast variety of restaurants ranging from the traditional style French Brasseries to high end gourmet Michelin restaurants.

Interior & Grounds

The guest bedrooms in the chateau comprise of a master suite and four further bedrooms, all with modern en-suite bath or shower rooms. All rooms are luxuriously appointed with a mix of Irish antiques. Only the finest Italian bed linen and towel are to be found in the bathrooms.

The ground floor accommodation comprises of a main entrance marble hallway that can be used as a dining or sitting area, two large cosy yet stylish salons with original beams and stone walls, a simple and elegantly furnished dining room, a state of the art modern granite kitchen with all appliances and an adjoining linen room. There is satellite TV with DVD in both the salon and the bedroom Suite. The chateau also has internet access, an Ipod docking station and heating throughout.

In the chateau‘s grounds you can relax on sun loungers on the terraced area by the private swimming pool (14mx6m). There is also a hard tennis court (racquets & balls provided). You are most welcome to stroll around the grounds and help yourself to any ripened fruit from the numerous variety of fruit trees or indeed any ripe fruit or vegetables from the owners vegetable garden. A barbecue is available for al fresco dining on the outside terrace.

Map, Location & Local Information

The gates from the chateau lead on to cycling and hiking paths, across vineyards and woodland areas. Horseriding is available in the nearby village of Fronsac. Canoeing is also possible on the Dordogne river, and fishing at the lake directly opposite the property is available. River cruises are available from Libourne. Neighbouring Chateaux offer all year round visits to their spectacular caves.

For local shopping, the market town of Libourne is closest and is a 10 minute drive. You will find all local produce available for sale at the market, held 3 mornings a week, and on the perimeter of the town there are a wide range of major supermarkets.

Bordeaux's Merignac international airport is a 30 minute drive and Bergerac is one hour from the Chateau. The Mainline railway station is Libourne which serves the TGV from Paris and other rail routes.

A 15 minute drive brings you to Saint Emilion which is renowned the world over for its red wine. Saint Emilion is a medieval town and can be likened to an amazing open-air museum. It has a remarkable underground monolithic church dug out of solid limestone. It is an ideal spot for either a relaxing stroll, or to take a deeper look into the town’s history.

There are numerous historical monuments, museums and galleries, gourmet restaurants famed for their Bordelaise cuisine and countless designer shops to visit in the cosmopolitan city of Bordeaux which is famed for its architectural heritage of the 18th century. It is a 25 minutes drive.

An hours drive brings you to the Atlantic Ocean with its sand dunes, large ocean breakers, some of Europe’s finest unspoiled beaches and glamorous Cap Ferret, where the wealthy of today still choose to spend their summers and dine in some of the finest seafood restaurants to be found on this coastline. Measuring 107 meters, the Dune de Pyla is Europe‘s highest sand dune. From the summit there are truly breathtaking views of the ocean, the surrounding woodlands and the distant Pyrenees. It is well worth the hike up just so you can run down it. For the young at heart, surf enthusiasts should visit Lacanau, which hosts one of Europe’s biggest surf competitions. It is a really fun place with plenty of restaurants and beachwear boutiques. Alternatively, you could visit the charming, buzzing ocean side town of Arcachon with its oyster bays and its protected basin that is ideal for children.

In the neighbouring Dordogne, a suggested day trip would be to explore the well known Caves of Lascaux. Closer to the Chateau is the famous citadelle of Blaye.

Chateau Emirol Reviews


  • We had a lovely time

    Posted by Clive B. on 03/07/2017

    Dear Jane, just a short note to say that we had a lovely time at your property. We were all impressed as to how well it was equipped and it was a pleasure to be in a house which had everything that we could have wanted. We had temperatures of 34 to 37 C so the pool was a godsend ( and so was the ice maker in the fridge/freezer!) I liked the the restaurant opposite the gates to the property (Chez Carles). Madame who runs it can be a bit frosty (at first )but she seems to have the same attitude with the locals, apart from the Gendarmes who eat their every day! The food is hearty and good value L'Escapade up the road was very good and extremely good value as well. Thanks once again.

     

     

  • Thank you for a great stay

    Posted by Elizabeth & Michael , Pam & Ross, Philip & Michele on 20/05/2017

    We are six Australians and have recently spent a week at Chateau Emirol on 20th May 2017. We were thrilled to find the Chateau was everything and more than we could imagine and very true to what was advertised by Oliver's Travels which is always a good thing especially when we travelled so far. The grounds were fabulous and we really enjoyed the pool each afternoon after a long day sightseeing. The Chateau was very comfortable , nicely decorated and very well stocked. Out night with Mathieu was exceptional, an experience we won't forget . The location was great very peaceful but close enough to Libourne for supplies. Thank you Jane for a great stay

  • We enjoyed our holiday

    Posted by David E. on 15/09/2016

    Hi Jane, a rather belated note to say how much we enjoyed our holiday in Bordeaux staying at your Chateau. It was very spacious, well appointed and very well equipped (especially the kitchen) and the pool and surrounding area were superb. We loved eating outside on the terrace and the garden was great for exploring - tomatoes, plums... delicious. Giles made the best plum frangipani tart for us! Finley went to great effort to write the thank you letter from us all and in his words it says how we all felt. Many thanks for the lovely wine which we all supped and enjoyed - Christian was absolutely charming and made us very welcome when we paid him a visit to buy some wine.

  • A thank you letter

  • We would really love to come back one day

    Posted by Family King (London) on 15/08/2016

    Dear Jane, we have all had a thoroughly enjoyable 2 weeks at your adorable chateau. Sadly we must leave this oasis tomorrow. When B asked me where I wanted to go this summer to celebrate (?) my 50th birthday, I decided on Bordeaux .. an area I have never visited except by proxy wine menus. She searched for a great place and we have all been exceptionally pleased with the result. We have enjoyed time out and about in Bordeaux, St Emilion and Libourne. We have enjoyed wine tasting and particularly at Chateau Mazaris. The car will be a lot heavier on the way back and we have a wine delivery soon after we get home. We will have many bottles to drink over the next few years to remind us of our lovely time here. The tennis and pool were so enjoyable. We love the chateau inside. It is very well equipped. Access to BBC sport, for me in particular during the Olympics was a big plus. Your restaurant recommendations were excellent. We would really love to come back one day.

     

     

  • A memorable vacation

    Dear Jane, thank you for the opportunity to spend a marvellous week in your wonderful home .. Chateau Emirol. We have enjoyed magnificent wines, great meals .. and the comfort of the Chateau. We have played and laughed through a memorable vacation. Thanks for everything.

  • An absolute pleasure to stay here

    Posted by The Tzelepis Family, Australia, June 2016 on 20/06/2016

    Dear Jane, It has been such a pleasure staying in your beautiful home, We love the whole area, the wineries, the food, the whole experience and we will definitely be back. It has been an absolute pleasure to stay here. To be honest my husband and I don't normally stay in villas, it is always hotels. But your home made us feel so at ease. We cooked and stayed in 2 evenings and it was really lovely to have the children lounge around and be relaxed. We have always worried what sort of facilities we would find. But your house is so well equipped with a great kitchen and good bathrooms. And your taste in decor made it a pleasant stay … very homely and very special. Thank you.

     

  • Thank you for an excellent holiday

    Posted by The Wright Family, Australia on 14/06/2016

    We had a splendid family gathering. We have played lots of games and read lots of books. The weather has been a little cruel to us which did not hamper our ability to enjoy your lovely swimming pool and tennis court. We have had some excellent visits (St Emilion, Chateau de la Riviere, Bordeaux) and some great meals out (Libourne, Montagne, Chez Carles) .. so many thanks for all the tips. Thank you for an excellent holiday.

     

  • Wonderful Chateau stay

    Posted by Victoria D. on 22/08/2015

    We really did have a super time at the house. It was totally perfect for all our needs and by far the best equipped house we have rented. The house was totally perfect for our children as the garden is so safe - they really enjoyed the freedom we could allow them. All is all we plan and hope to return soon.

  • Beautiful surroudings, amazing location and lovely owners

    Posted by Oliver B. on 01/08/2015

    What a wonderful holiday. The perfect antidote to our busy lives. The combination of an elegant charming home, tennis court and fabulous pool was ideal.

    Thank you Jane for your amazing attention to detail providing all the information and advice that we could have needed. Your home is beautiful and so well equipped.

    Many thanks also to your excellent team Katrina, Karen, Yves and Patty who all went out of their way to make sure that we had a fun, enjoyable and memorable holiday.

  • Thank you for so many wonderful, once in a lifetime memories.

    Posted by Lizzie F. on 13/06/2015

    My Mother, Father, brother and I were so looking forward to staying at your home after seeing the beautiful photos .. it did not disappoint!! As well as being a gorgeous home with lovely grounds, every detail was thought out on the inside. Your well appointed kitchen allowed us to cook many meals from the produce we bought at Libourne markets and then enjoy on the terrace in the sun. We will miss our morning walks to the local boulangerie and afternoons by the pool after wine tasting all day.

  • We had a wonderful stay!

    Posted by Tamara on 03/10/2014

    It was perfect for our family of eight. We used the tennis court daily and spent many lovely afternoons around the pool. The outdoor seating was a favourite and we ate most of our meals there. The kitchen was fabulous and well equipped. We all felt very comfortable. The house was very elegant yet comfortable. It was a fabulous house for all of us. It really was exactly what we needed and were thrilled with how it all worked out

  • A terrific spot

    Posted by Devlin Family, NJ, USA on 22/09/2014

    Dear Jane, thank you fo very much for allowing our family of 6 experience your wonderful Chateau. It is in a terrific spot, so very central to a host of different activities, sites, locations etc.. Could have stayed much longer! A week is such a short amount of time to see/do ll that this wonderful area has to offer! I guess we will just have to come back in the future to finish it all! So many thanks again.

  • “Our home away from home”

    Posted by Knight Family, Singapore on 22/09/2014

    Dear Jane, there are so many wonderful comments in this book - and here on the last page is another! Our family has reconnected here at your fab home. It has become “our home away from home”. What a privilege to spend 3 weeks here! Yves (tennis coach) and Karen (French teacher) were fantastic .. surpassing all expectations! Katriona and J L were AMAZING … they made me feel so comfortable. Your support and organisation contributed immensely to our fantastic family stay. Thank you and best wishes

  • Great memories

    Posted by Richards Family, Canada on 22/09/2014

    Sightseeing, walking, jogging, hiking, tennis, swimming, wine tasting …. this place has it all: including a wonderful Chateau and grounds. We enjoyed it to the fullest and will have great memories.

  • A delighful trip

    Posted by Duggan, USA on 22/09/2014

    Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful Chateau. We enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you for making our trip to France so delightful.

  • Everything is wonderful!

    Posted by Cheryl Richards on 21/07/2014

    ! I couldn't be more pleased with the way things have worked out. The Chateau is so beautiful, elegant yet very comfortable. We are all enjoying ourselves, using tennis courts almost daily and the kids love the pool. The weather has been perfect for touring around and we visit somewhere almost daily. Today we are going to the coast for a little beach . We did the sand dunes last week, visited St Emilion, Bordeaux , a couple of chateaux, an abbey and yesterday we went to Bourg for Fete National. Good fun. It really is a spectacular area and we have loved every minute.

     

  • Should you ever need a caretaker for your property we would be delighted if you would consider us.

    Posted by Mandl (US) on 19/02/2014

    We have been home for a few days and reflecting on our holiday. We can both say with confidence this France holiday has been the best holiday we have had. Great wine, family and fabulous food celebrated in your welcoming Chateau confirmed we are very fortunate. It was a great opportunity to reconnect and relax. Your chateau was both child and adult friendly. The weather was perfect, the people were friendly and the chateau was so well equipped to support the many activities 4 children and 5 adults wanted to do. We would care for your Chateau as if it was our own.

  • Wonderful holiday home

    Posted by Zwisler (US) on 19/02/2014

    Carl and I and are 4 children, and friends, want to thank you very much for sharing your beautiful home with us for these two weeks. It is a wonderful space from which to experience Bordeaux.

  • We will definitely stay there again

    Posted by Rusciano (US) on 19/02/2014

    It was a pleasure to stay in such a wonderful home. When we return as a group, we will definitely stay there again. We are all creatures of habit, and having found such a comfortable spot, I can see no other option we would consider. I was very happy with our choice to stay with you.

  • Rosey Geffen

    Posted by Rosey G on 03/09/2013

    Chateau la Roque is a very comfortable house to stay in. The bedrooms and bathrooms are of a high standard and the kitchen is very well kitted out. The gardens are lovely, marred a little by noise from a busy road at the bottom of the hill, but we enjoyed using the tennis court and pool - once we had got used to the temperature of the water and played many games of boules. The huge outside table is perfectly placed by a large tree which gives shade at the right times of day and made meals outside very enjoyable.

  • Little slice of heaven

    Posted by anonymous User on 08/11/2012

    Thank you for opening your amazing home. Bordeaux, Libourne and St

    Emilion are lovely and we are so grateful to have spent our time

    vacationing in your sanctuary - a perfect place for our friends to meet.

    I assume our group was not among your standard guests - five couples!

    Most of us met while attending Cornell University and have a fraternity,

    sorority of a major study in common. Frederico and I dreamt of a time

    when all of us could be together in the same place again (it has been 5

    years) and we are so happy to have found Chateau La Roque. Whether by

    plane, train or automobile (and some a combination of!) we all arrived

    in Bordeaux for our 1 week stay. We split the days between playing

    tennis, tasting delicious wine, shopping and eating (thank you

    Christophe). We left Bordeaux feeling refreshed and rejuvenated and cant

    wait to return. To all future guests, we hope you enjoy this little

    slice of heaven as much as we did. It is truly something to be

    cherished.

    It was a wonderful way to spend our ruby wedding anniversary at Chateau

    La Roque surrounded by our family We have enjoyed all the local sights,

    have drunk copious amounts of wine, eaten loads of french breads and

    cheese. We have sunbathed around the pool and enjoyed the ambiance of

    the chateau.

     

    Thank you Jane for waiting for us when we got lost coming from the

    airport. A massive thank you to Christophe for making our anniversary

    dinner so delicious and Florence - we want to take you home! Thank you

    Thank you Jane for the warmth and comfort of your home. It enabled us

    to relax and explore the area with ease - and what a wonderful area. The

    birthday bash in Bordeaux was a great success, as was our evening with

    Christophe who looked after us like royalty. Thank you for providing

    facilities such as pool, tennis court and bikes which were all much

    appreciated.

     

    A great holiday with friends old and new.

    7 of our extended family travelled from Australia, UK and South Africa,

    and spent a wonderful 5 days at your chateau in April.

     

    We cannot compliment you enough on its location just west of Libourne.

    Beautifully appointed, 5 bedrooms all en suite and a large living area

    with modern kitchen made it ideal for 3 families.

     

    The views from every room were terrific and made the choice of a lazy

    day around the chateau versus short trips to nearby St Emilion, Pomerol

    and the Medoc a difficult one! The chateau of Fronsac, many within

    walking distance, were a delight in that they were so close and

    unexpected. We would like to return, perhaps next time in summer so that

    we can make use of the swimming pool.

  • Your chateau is gorgeous......

    Dear Jane Just wanted to say thankyou for hiring your chateau to us, we had a most wonderful family holiday and it was really special to all be together in the chateau to celebrate my parent's ruby wedding. Your chateau is gorgeous, it's just a shame we only booked for a week, could easily have stayed much longer! Thankyou too for your recommendation of Christophe and Florence.  We really enjoyed both our dinners from Christophe, in particular the ruby wedding meal which made the anniversary more special. Florence was also a great source of information during our stay and was incredibly helpful. We had a fantastic time and would not hesitate in recommending a stay in Chateau La Roque to friends and family Thanks again Best wishes Jennyxx

  • We would love to return!!

    7 of our extended family travelled from Australia, UK and South Africa, and spent a wonderful 5 days at your chateau in April.

    Dear Jane, your home is absolutely beautiful and the setting just idylic. We very much appreciated your attention to detail, I hope the orchids survived as we did not realize they were real until the blooms started dropping off! We could have easily spent more time in the area, there is so much to see and do. We did manage a visit to both St Emilion and Bordeaux. Thank you again for such a wonderful week.

    Dear Jane, the Chateau is very pretty and the pool is fantastic. I really enjoyed playing in the tennis court even though I am not very good at it.

    Hi Jane, Bordeaux is indeed beutiful. The chateau was a beautiful and relaxing experience and we all enjoyed it thoroughly. You have a lovely home in a fantastic location. having not been in France for years the trip has rekindled my interest - this may have been the first of many future visits!

  • Thanks for a lovely week in your Chateau

    Posted by Neil R on 29/07/2010

    Hi Jane, Thanks for a lovely week in your Chateau, we really did have a wonderful week and were sad to leave. The house is so well equipped that we really did not miss anything from home. The kids loved jumping in and out of the pool and relaxing around the garden. Christophe is a brilliant find, he cooked us all two lovely meals, if we could have booked him for the full week we would have done so, maybe next time!
