Beautiful and centrally located

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay! This was our first trip to France and found this Chateau to be extraordinary. Very comfortable, clean and was equipped with everything needed. The location was ideal and found it to be close to shopping and downtown Bordeaux. All of the area attractions were within a one hour drive. To come to this area, you definitely need a car and GPS is a must unless you speak and read French! We highly recommend this property and would definitely stay there on our next trip to Bordeaux!
