    Stroll scheduled in the area but quite expensive for what it was. Tasting after and added to the price of the ride without telling us

    Nice ride in a pretty Park and in the vineyards. However, the content is a bit thin, especially on the wines. Not very nice.

    Nice ride in the middle of the vignes.c' is simple and short, donations that does not discourage children who do not like to walk. Shop at the end, but not forcing on the sale.

    Lovely vineyard camping car site. 3 Euros per camping car. Quiet and beautiful and they have some very nice wines in their little shop.

    We chose the Castle St. Ahon to celebrate our wedding on May 6, 2017, we enjoyed a beautiful exterior to a great secular ceremony thanks to Elodie (Serial Noceuses - secular ceremony officiating) and share very good wine with our guests. Enjoyed fully the wonderful room with view of the winery to delight our guests a good meal and a great night. Again we enjoyed the professionalism and the good advice of the team of the castle in the choice of the red wine Château Saint Ahon 2008, and pink Mirabelle as our guests were greatly appreciated. We are also very pleased with our choice of catering to the delights Deyzieux and DJ Concept its (Manuel Hubin) partners of the Castle. Thanks again for taking part in the success of our marriage! Elodie & Cédric

Where to stay in Bordeaux

Most hotels in Bordeaux sit conveniently located a stone's throw away from the train station. Look to Quinconces Square and Gambetta Square for high-end hotels. Those who prefer more budget-friendly accommodations may want to seek out a youth hostel--a relatively recent addition to the city. To secure a spot here, make sure to book ahead of time. In addition to hotels and hostels, choose from guest rooms in a typical Bordeaux house, or a family-friendly beachside campsite.
