  • Visited this chateau mid August. had a unguided museum tour and a movie to see. The museum is quite nice but needs some freshing up. Explanation from the guide was OK but not very enthousiastic, maybe...  more »
  • Very warm welcome and tour of the winery with a very qualified person, tasting with explanation full of what needs it to know about wine. Beautiful castle with the Museum of arts and crafts of the vine and the wine. The price of the tour is €5 and have offers you the your tasting glass.

  • Visited the Chateau with 3 friends with the intention of purchasing 4 cases, having seen the wine recommended elsewhere. When we asked to taste, prior to confirming our purchase, we were told that there was none available to taste and that we would have to buy a bottle in order to do so. When we said that we were surprised at this, given the number of tastings and tours the Chateau organises, we were sarcastically told that since we were so polite we could try a completely different wine from a different year, with fundamentally different characteristics to the wine we intended to purchase. This is a commercialised money machine that omits the charm and elegance of Bordeaux and its wineries. For a much more authentic experience with delightful wine and superb customer interaction, we visited and would highly recommend Chateau Biston-Bruillette, Chateau Paveil de Luze (including a tour round the Chateau) and Chateau Haut Breton Larigaudiere.
  • It is a really nice and romantic Chateau. It looks just like the picture you see! You get to stay in one of the rooms inside for a very reasonable cost. They prepare a simple and pleasant relaxing breakfast for you in the mornings as well. The grounds are gorgeous for taking pictures or just hanging out chilling.
  • Excellent!!!
  • Very impersonal and disappointing visit with too brief explanations. The price is quite expensive at the final (€ 8 per person). A positive point however is the beauty of the Castle.

  • The decoration of the room is a bit dated but the bed was excellent. Very good breakfast and the meals at the dinner table. Very interesting Museum and visit of the cellars with tasting with a qualified oenologist. Very friendly atmosphere, each person we met friendly.
