Staying at Château Chaumeton allows you to experience the authenticity of a castle dating back over 600 years whilst truly relaxing in high-end surroundings, set within a working vineyard only 15km from France’s famous wine town, Saint-Émilion.

Located on the edge of a small village near the Dordogne River, this wonderful French château dates back to the early 1400s when it was built as a fortified house by a Normandy family – the two towers still remain to this day. Having undergone a huge restoration in recent years, guests can soak up the castle’s rich heritage whilst appreciating comfortable furnishings and contemporary style across its centuries old lounge and spacious country kitchen.

The air-conditioned bedrooms are beautiful, some with wood-beamed ceilings and exposed stone walls, many with the addition of an en suite bath or shower room. Sleeping up to 14 guests across the castle, the family bedroom and two-bedroom suite are especially attractive to families whilst we adore the rolltop bathtub and double walk-in shower in the master bedroom’s bathroom. Meanwhile, the tower bedroom is like stepping back in time with its incredible ceiling!

Outside, the decked poolside terrace juxtaposes perfectly with the historic surroundings – it almost feels like you are staying at a boutique-style beach club rather than relaxing in rural south-western France! As well as the heated swimming pool, stylish sun loungers and day beds, backed by agapanthuses and lavender, the poolside converted barn houses a chic bar and lounge alongside an air-conditioned gym.

Find the table tennis table beneath the terrace, a yoga pavilion amongst the trees, the outdoor kitchen and gas barbecue as well as al-fresco dining which can be prettily lit up at night. As the sun sets over the vines, sit back with a glass of local wine on the kitchen terrace making the most of the evening sunlight.  

This region is a paradise for wine-enthusiasts. Not only are you surrounded by a 4.5-hectare vineyard, it is just a 15-minute drive to the exquisite hilltop town of Saint-Émilion and its UNESCO World Heritage vineyards, but the Gironde wine regions of Pomerol, Sauternes and the great city of Bordeaux can be reached for a fine day out – wine tours and tastings can be arranged.

Enjoy local walks and cycle rides, canoe or kayak along the Dordogne and learn all about the Hundred Years’ War in the nearby market town of Castillon-la-Bataille. Food lovers can visit so many atmospheric markets across the Gironde and Dordogne and dine out in an array of inviting restaurants from traditional auberges to Michelin starred establishments.

Further afield, spend the day by the Dordogne in Bergerac, visit the prestigious wine châteaux of the Médoc peninsula, embrace the beauty of L’Étang de Lacanau or simply venture to Arcachon Bay for white wine and oysters overlooking the Atlantic coast in this magnificent region of south-western France.

What you should know…

  • Château Chaumeton sleeps up to 14 guests across six bedrooms (including a family suite) plus an extra guests (on request only) using a sofa-bed in the study.
  • There is air-conditioning in the bedrooms and in the gym.
  • When staying in this beautiful 14th century chateau, expect low wood beams and doorways, sloping ceilings and well-trodden spiral stone stairs.
  • In a rural part of France, a car is definitely needed and it’s worth noting there is wildlife around (at the moment there are nesting owls in the roof above one of the bedrooms!).
  • The château is part of a working vineyard - the farming machinery use different entrances and the grapes are taken to the local cooperative at harvest time.

Set within a working vineyard, surrounded by 4.5 hectares of vines and only 15km from Saint-Émilion, this 14th century castle is not just a paradise for wine-lovers but any Francophile looking to experience the beautiful Gironde region of south-western France, just to the south of the Dordogne River and around an hour from Bordeaux.

If flying to France you can arrive via Bordeaux or Bergerac Airports whilst the TGV train service heads into Bordeaux Saint Jean (the fastest direct services from Paris Montparnasse to Bordeaux take around 2 hours 10 minutes).

The small local village is just 400m from the château, home to a 12th century church, whilst the next village along, around 2.5km by car, has a boulangerie and small local restaurant. The attractive bastide town of Castillon-la-Bataille (6km), by the banks of the Dordogne, has several shops, restaurants and café-bars as well as a bustling market on a Monday morning. If staying in late July or August, look out for the incredible re-enactments of the battle of Castillon which take place on Friday and Saturday evenings – book ahead for this very impressive event.

Castillon-la-Bataille is also home to the nearest train station with departures to Bordeaux (39 minutes), Sainte-Foy-la-Grande (18 minutes) and Bergerac (36 minutes). You could also take the train to Saint-Émilion (6 minutes) if you don’t mind the 20-minute walk up to the hilltop town from the train station.

Whether arriving by train or car, Saint-Émilion (15km) is one of the highlights of this region, an exquisite hilltop town steeped in rich heritage and famous for its UNESCO World Heritage vineyards, some of which date back to Roman times. With its old quarter, Romanesque churches and fascinating catacombs, its beauty will enchant you as you stroll around its labyrinth of narrow lanes. Step into high-end wine shops, pretty boutiques and excellent restaurants including the two Michelin starred La Table de Pavie.

Food-lovers also note that there is a Michelin starred restaurant even closer in Saint-Jean-de-Blaignac (5km) as well as many other wonderful bistros, restaurants and markets where you can experience the very best cuisine of the Dordogne and Gironde regions. Look out for atmospheric markets in places such as Sainte-Foy-la-Grande (28km), Duras (30km), La Réole (30km) and Monségur (27km) as well as the much-loved markets of Bordeaux, Libourne and Saint-Émilion.

Beyond Saint-Émilion , wine connoisseurs can visit the wine areas of Pomerol and Sauternes (47km) or venture slightly further afield to the Médoc peninsula with Pauillac (100km) and Margaux (72km) reached within a 90-minute drive. Perhaps combine with a trip to the peaceful shores of Étang de Lacanau (107km) or the surfing beaches north of Cap Ferret. Sipping white wine accompanied by oysters on Arcachon Bay (110km) is another iconic experience of the Atlantic coastline of France.

How amazing to stay in a castle that dates back 600 years! Welcome modern additions for families include the table football in the poolside converted barn, the covered ping-pong table as well as giant jenga, boules and a football/rubgy ball to play with. Families who enjoy yoga together will love the pavilion set within the grounds. Wildlife lovers can appreciate the rural setting and possibly listen out for nesting owls!

Just 6km is the historic town of Castillon-la-Bataille. Find canoeing along the Dordogne just on the edge of the town as well as a riverside beach. In the height of the summer 2-hour long historic re-enactments take place on Friday and Saturday evenings just north of the town, an incredible event that attracts viewers from across the region.

There are a couple of ‘accrobranche’ centres within a 30-minute drive offering tree-top adventures for a variety of ages – either Des-chênes-toi Aventure in the Lot-et-Garonne or Arbor et Sens near the Garonne River.

Of course, the city of Bordeaux is an amazing day out for all the family – arrive by train from nearby Castillon-la-Bataille, take a tour of the city centre, splash around in the fountains at Place de la Bourse, take a boat ride along the Garonne River and visit the many museums, parks and galleries (and maybe even La Cité du Vin which offers a children’s audio tour for ages 8+).

The Atlantic coast also awaits from the Dune du Pilat and the surfing beaches of the Médoc peninsula to the gentler shores and summer watersports of the Étang de Lacanau. In the opposite direction, Bergerac is a fine place for families with boat trips along the Dordogne, a waterpark, more tree-top adventures and other family-friendly activities in the vicinity.

Owner Profile

When did you become the owner?
Summer 2020 – a crazy mid-COVID purchase!

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
We felt that it was a beautiful old château and vineyard, but also a manageable size for a family home and an amazing bucolic summer retreat.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?
We understand that the Château was built at the time of the 100 years’ war, in the 15th Century, by a Normandy family. Although there is some debate, we believe their surname was ‘Chaumeton’. There are many such fortified properties in this area that date from this time and our local town, Castillon-la-Bataille, is named after the famous battle that ended the 100 years’ war, on 17th July 1453.

Have you ever had any famous guests staying?
Not that we are aware of, however the old metal fireplace backplate in the fireplace, in the lounge, contains the salamander crest of the French king Francois 1er (1494-1547), leaving us to wonder whether he ever stayed there!

For anyone coming to stay, is there anything you suggest that they really…

Must do?
Experience the wine, château and vineyards of St Émilion. 

Must eat?
St Émilion has a number of shops that sell Canellés. These are small Bordeaux cakes using the egg yolks left over from the wine production (which used the egg whites to clarify the wine).

Must see?
The massive outside stage show at Castille-la-Bataille re-enacts parts of the 100 years’ war and the final battle after which the town was named. A spectacular affair across a huge outdoors stage with 100s of people involved, music and fireworks. It is in French, but it is so spectacular it is still enjoyable even if you cannot follow all the explanation.

What insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
The screeches that you hear in the evening are not actually aliens, but our family of barn owls that nest in the château. It turns out that barn owls don’t give a nice gentle ‘twit-twoo’ but a loud, and sometimes startling, screech. This year, we could hear the babies in their nest, and they sounded more like an old man snoring! They are beautiful if you get a chance to see them, and always amaze us with their sizeable wingspan, and perfectly silent flight.

Reviews

  • We simply couldn't fault it

    Created on 02/09/2023

    Wow, what a week at the chateau that we had as a family of 10 in a beautiful hide away location that makes you feel a million miles away from everything but really you're close to everything you need. The chateau caters for everyone; huge, spacious kitchen, loads of social spaces, and plenty of bedrooms to accommodate all different ages of guests. Our family were really lucky to have this, and also experience amazing surrounding groups with a swimming pool and BBQ, bar and gym facilities that we could constantly use. So thankful for allowing us to share their beautiful home for our holiday. We simply couldn't fault it.

  • Cherished memories of a lovely stay.

    Created on 20/08/2023

    Well what a lovely stay I had with my wife's family at Chateau Chaumeton! It's surrounded by picturesque vineyards and fairly close to Saint-Émilion, Branne and Castillon-la-Bataille which were all lovely to explore, or if you'd prefer to stay put the pool and gardens were gorgeous. The Chateau provided the perfect blend of luxury, tranquillity, and a true taste of Bordeaux's wine country, leaving me with cherished memories of a lovely stay.

  • A fabulous location for our French holiday

    Created on 19/08/2023

    What a beautiful chateau set in the rural Bordeaux countryside with many original features and sympathetically decorated. The fully equipped kitchen/dining area was perfect for our family holiday.
    Our bedrooms were clean, comfortable and with easy access to bathrooms or ensuites. We loved using the outdoor pool with sunbeds, plenty of seating and a BBQ, as well as the adjacent bar/entertaining area. The indoor air conditioned gym was an added bonus!
    A fabulous location for our French holiday - thank you for having us.

  • 10/10!

    Created on 28/07/2023

    Our family of 8 enjoyed a wonderful holiday at Chateau Chaumeton this Summer. The Chateau is both stylish and spacious and there was lots of amenities to keep both adults and children entertained throughout our break. Whilst we all spent the majority of time in the pool, which was necessary in the heat of the summer sun, we also enjoyed games of table tennis, table football and swing ball! The air conditioned gym was also a popular hangout for the teenagers, whereas the adults preference was the bar area! We are a large family so it was great that we could dine both inside and outside on large tables and use an array of cooking equipment. Whilst the chateau is well placed to travel to a variety of locations to sight see, the surrounding scenery is also stunning and a walk alongside the river and vineyards is highly recommended. We cannot fault this incredible accommodation - 10/10!

  • One of the most amazing places that any of us have had the fortune to stay!

    Created on 17/07/2023

    We were so excited to spend our holiday at this amazing property. It is such a special place – a perfect haven among the vines. The chateau is stunning! The interiors are stylish and comfortable whilst staying in keeping with the history of the building. Also, the view from our bedroom over the vines was glorious to wake up to.
    The chateau and grounds are large and comfortable and were perfect for our family holidays and big groups. There is lots to do whether playing table tennis or relaxing in the outdoor pavilion in the lovely gardens. The whole family enjoyed swimming in the pool which is a great size (there is a shallow end for the less confident swimmers). It was truly relaxing sitting around the pool with plenty of umbrellas for shade. The bar and gym area next to the pool is incredible – such a cool space where our teenager loved spending his time. In the evenings we loved being able to barbecue and it was a real pleasure to eat outside under the trees.
    It is such an idyllic, peaceful location yet close and easy enough to enjoy the local area where there is loads to do. There is an excellent supermarket a close drive away. St-Émilion is about a 10-15 minutes drive and we loved exploring the town, trying the restaurants and touring the local vineyards.
    It is without question one of the most amazing places that any of us have had the fortune to stay!

  • We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Chateau Chaumeton

    Created on 24/06/2023

    We had an amazing time at Chateau Chaumeton. It's a beautiful 14th Century property, nestled amongst the vineyards and really close to the stunning St-Émilion and also an easy drive/train ride away from Bordeaux, one of my favourite French cities. The accommodation itself is spot on - with big, comfortable bedrooms, en-suite bathrooms and a lovely farmhouse kitchen. On top of this - there has been a stunning renovation of one of the old farm buildings so that there is now a fantastic outside kitchen, gym, bar and beautiful swimming pool. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Chateau Chaumeton to any family or group looking for a luxury holiday in a truly memorable spot.

  • The most perfect family holiday I've ever had

    Created on 25/08/2022

    Chateau Chaumeton sits in a picturesque location surrounded by grape vines and fields of sunflowers. The grounds around the chateau are beautiful and well maintained. There is even a Yoga studio (which we used as an outdoor cinema).

    This wonderful, rural, location really makes you forget about the stresses of day-to-day life. However, it is only a short drive from a large supermarket, train station and more touristy towns such as St-Émilion which was convenient.

    We stayed for a family holiday (10 adults) and it couldn't have been more perfect. The chateau itself has a wonderful charm and has been sympathetically updated to bring it into the 21st Century.

    The luxurious area around the heated pool was jaw-droppingly beautiful and I will remember our time spent laughing and relaxing around the pool forever.

    There is a stunning, air conditioned bar and gym by the pool with a handy shower/changing room to save going back to the main house. There is a large dining table outside and plenty of parasols for shade in the heat of the day. We made good use of the bbq and outdoors kitchen.

    All in all, it’s the most perfect family holiday I've ever had.
