  • Simply Amazing!

    Posted by Peter B. + Group from Australia on 12/09/2018

    Firstly, thank you very much for allowing us to have a very memorable week using the Chateau as a “home-base” for exploring the surrounding towns and Bordeaux itself. We travelled to numerous places around your area plus we did a quick day-trip to Arcachon to sample the seafood – everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we are all left full of memories of really good wines, great food and thoroughly friendly and congenial company. The Chateau was a perfect base for us – we loved the “country feel” of the place, the quiet and safe seclusion of the grounds – plus the way you have furnished each of the rooms. The ambience of the place was really good, the BBQ and pool area is excellent and the kitchen was well-appointed with a very good sized fridge/freezer. Our only suggestions here are that perhaps 1-2 extra tongs could be supplied and that an electric jug be provided for those times when someone wants a quick coffee and not have to wait for the kettle to boil on the stove. Thank you once again for allowing us to stay in your Chateau – we will be recommending it to others back in Australia.

  • Beautiful villa, beautiful countryside

    Posted by Laura E on 22/07/2018

    Such a beautiful villa in a beautiful part of the world. We loved our stay and had a fantastic time, it was perfect. The owners are lovely and super helpful.
    Many thanks for a fab holiday!

  • A wonderful time!

    Posted by John M. and family from UK/Norway on 24/08/2017

    We had the most wonderful time and loved staying at your beautiful home. Two weeks was not enough and would have liked a third. The Chateau was perfect for my family and friends to reconnect as we had not spent time together for over 5 years. We particularly loved the outside ‘Summer Salon’ where we hung out together late into the warm evenings drinking wine, bbqing and playing music. We will for sure be back and hope to make it a similar time next year just trying to work out some dates.

  • This is really living the dream of Chateau living!

    Posted by John B. and family from UK on 10/07/2017

    Due to flight delays we arrived very late at night but the host kindly stayed up to let us into the property and then returned early the following morning to make sure we had everything we needed for our stay. The Chateau was very comfortable and clean and offered a beautiful space in which to enjoy our holiday with family and friends.

  • Mother's 60th Birthday

    Posted by Garth E. and family from Scotland on 17/06/2017

    We booked the Chateau to celebrate my mothers 60th Birthday at the beginning of June and had a wonderful week together. The Chateau is presented with beautiful antiques and furniture and offered a very elegant insight into Chateau Living. Watching the sun come up in the morning over a cup of coffee sitting overlooking the vineyards was a great way to start the day!

  • We will be back again next year!

    Posted by Harry, Millie and the children on 08/12/2011

    The Chateau is so comfortable and each area works well with a larger group. We especially appreciated the sit on toys and games provided for the children. We will be back again next year!

  • This is a little bit of heaven on earth

    Posted by The cycling group on 23/04/2010

    So tranquil and relaxing, the pool, the endless cycle paths, the wine tasting. This is a little bit of heaven on earth. We shall be back.

  • There is everything you need for a great holiday

    Posted by The Watsons on 19/04/2010

    Delightful place, we felt very at home here. There is everything you need for a great holiday and more!  Thank you so much for a wonderful time.
