This elegant château on a wine estate has just received a complete facelift and is once again opening its doors - for Oliver’s Travels' guests exclusively.  

Recently renovated by a talented architect, it is has been decorated and furnished with style and refinement and sits majestically in three hectares of beautiful parkland with a private heated swimming pool, three hole golf course, and petanque court amidst the estate’s vineyards.

Château Les Peintures is just four kilometres from the small town of Coutras and not far from Libourne. It is not far from charming Saint-Émilion, UNESCO classified and where world class restaurants sit beside ancient ruins, as well as the fabulous city of Bordeaux, with its new ‘Cité du Vin’. The area is abundant with world renowned vineyards, whilst the Bassin d'Arcachon, la Dune du Pyla and le Cap Ferret are just an hour-and-a-half away.

Château Les Peintures is ideal for friends or families travelling together who appreciate beautiful surroundings and are looking for a quiet, peaceful vacation with easy access to the area’s major attractions and towns.

What you should know…

  • One of the bedrooms in the château is in the tower and has two single beds, and is therefore only suitable for two children or teenagers
  • Please note that bicycles and paddles are available on request.

This home is a part of our Great Value and Heritage Collection!

This is a historic home, and as such:

  • It has probably been standing for over 100 years, which means it's full of historic value and charm but it may also have one or two quirks!
  • Some of the decor and furnishings may not be brand new, but that should not detract from your holiday experience in this unique setting that allows you to take a step back in time!

Little history lovers will love exploring the underground catacombs in Saint-Émilion, only 25km away, or just admiring the incredible architecture across this historic village. Impress them with a tour in a Tuk-Tuk or even a prestige motor vehicle!

Only a 15 minute drive away, head to the amusement park Au Ptit Cro Magnon, perfect for kids to blow off some steam. There are many different fun activities such as bouncy castles, water slides and trampolining, meanwhile the parents can relax in the laid back café.

Then of course there is the great city of Bordeaux, on the banks of the Garonne, an hour away, with its magnificent buildings (look out for the summer splash fountains at the Miroir d’Eau) and brilliant museums (including Cap Sciences and the Natural History Museum). Tired legs can tour the city via the little road train that takes you past some of the city’s major sights.

Owner Profile

How long have you owned the property?
We bought the property in 2016 to settle down here in a few year's time. After 8 months, it was completely renovated.

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
The lovely 17th century castle.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?
Built in the 18th century, the Chateau belonged to the Lord of paintings, who used to organise passage for trade between Poitier, Angoulene, Libourne and Bordeaux. It was then under a general officer and was a big part of the Resistance during WW2. Rumour has it that weapons are still hidden at the bottom the wells.In 2000, a rather wealthy American art dealer bought the property and refurbished all outside walls and roofing identically to its origins so his daughter could get married. He passed away in New York during the crisis of 2008 and so we bought the Chateau from his children.

Have you ever had any famous guests staying?

My wife and I work in the TV industry so some presenters fairly famous in France did stay a few days at the chateau ((Julie Andrieu-Sandrine Quétier Thierry Marx).

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

Really do?

Go to the basin d’Arcachon and climb the Dune du Pyla
Really eat?
Le vin de Saint émilion et de Pomerol et le restaurant de mon ami Jean Pierre A Bordeaux : LA Tupina
Really see?

What insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
There are a thousand of things to do but a day in Saint-Emilion is a must. You should have breakfast at the Troplong Mondotte estate. Also, spend a day in Bordeaux and have dinner at La Tupina or Muse du Vin.



  • Amazing time!

    it was a great family holiday!

  • Lovely family holiday with our dog!

    on 07/08/2018

    We had a lovely family holiday at Les Peintures, 21-28th July.

    There was a sheet of A4 in French and English with very brief information. There were a few leaflets from the tourist bureau.

    The caretaker and her husband were very helpful. They spoke some English and her husband arrived to fix a plumbing issue speedily.

    Thank you and the owner for allowing us to take our dog she had the most wonderful time .

  • One week is not enough
