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 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.

Good news! For a little extra, this property is available as a Vill’otel

Yey! Wait… what is that?
It’s the perfect combo of the privacy of your own personal villa, with all the luxury and convenience of a hotel.

What’s included?
Breakfast, cleaning, welcome drinks and hamper, plus more! Check the Extras tab for all the details.

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?
Saint-Emilion

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.

  • Lovely family holiday with our dog!

    Posted by Kate 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

    Posted by Guilhem G. on 08/05/2017

    A true corner of paradise! Thank you for your welcome and your kindness, the wine was perfect. We did not use the fireplace because it was too hot but we will be back: one week is not enough to make the most out of the region!

  • Nous reviendrons tres vite

    Posted by Altschull and Vignola Families on 01/05/2017

    Quel endroit magnfique ou quand on ferme les portes du Domaines on est comme dans un écrin de verdure à l'abri du bruit. Nous avons passé un incroyable séjour d'une semaine avec nos enfants qui ont pu profiter de la Piscine des ballades en vélo dans les vignes et des magnifiques paysages historiques de Saint Emilion. Nous étions les premiers locataires après la réhabilitation du domaine et nous reviendrons tres vite.
