This place is a wonderful place to tour but somewhat south of mediocre to taste. The tour of the wonderful quarry/ caves was special and makes the trip worthwhile. The caves were actually used by the French resistance during ww2 and you can actually feel that vibe in the caves. The wine tasting was not very good. We tasted the... More

There is a pool where the ladies used to dip their toes in the fresh spring that runs through the property. The highlight is the tour of the caves,... More

Natalie, the woman that manages it cooks the most delicious breakfast each morning and the view of the vineyards below is absolutely breathtaking. You also must take a tour of the Cavres underneath the property. It is a truly neat experience. The only complaint is that... More

You will definitely feel like a princess while bathing in that marble tub - the rooms are enormous, the beds are comfortable, and the views are absolutely amazing. You are about 45 min from downtown Bordeaux and from the Dordogne region. It's pefectly situated for touring the region. And, Nathalie is a wonderful hostess - you will love this place!... More

Spent 3 nights at this wonderful Chateau with my family. We had a lovely suite with a view of the vineyards. A delicious breakfast with fresh baked goods and homemade jams was served every morning in the kitchen. We also enjoyed a tour of the winery and some wine tasting!
