We will always treasure our time at this beautiful Chateau.

Nick B. New Rohcelle, NY, US. 13 April 2019

Thank you for sharing with us this stunning vineyard and chateau. The view is spectacular and we all had a wonderful time. Bordeaux and the surrounding are just heaven for us who love good food, wine and scenery. Thank you for being such a gracious host with such thoughtful elegant accommodation. We had a private Chef come who could use the fully equipped kitchen. … We had the most extraordinary vacation at Chateau Dominant Le Vignoble Bordelais !! It began when Jo met us and led us through the property. When we entered the kitchen, we were met with local produce and products to begin our stay. It was heartwarming as well as very functional. We didn’t have to go out of the house for our first meal! The chateau itself was amazingly beautiful and pristine. It exceeded our needs although we truly appreciated all of the conveniences and beauty. Frederic was available any time we needed him. He recommended a tour guide for a vineyard tour we wanted to take. Again, Hamish exceeded our expectations and the entire group had a fabulous time. We spent several mornings at local markets exploring and buying food that we would return with and prepare. Any appliance or bowl that we might need was available. We ate and drank our way through Bordeaux. I can’t even begin to describe how beautiful the property was. Everywhere you looked, there were vineyards. The manicured property surrounding the chateau with the pool and lounge area were lovely. Unfortunately, the weather was cool enough that we didn’t use the pool or yard. I highly recommend the property. Frederic and Joe were wonderful hosts and the property exquisite. We hope to return one day.
Thank you! Jami

We also travelled to nearby market such as Duras and Issigeac and had a wonderful time. One night an amazing storm hit up, it was amazing to see.The rest of the very sunny weather accommodated fun, games , chatting and good times by the pool. We are all grateful we were able to stay in such a visually stunning place with so much to do.
Thank you for a wonderful 2 weeks.

We had a great stay here in this beautiful Chateau. Landscapes are great, the view from the kitchen is just amazing. Many things to do in the region but we’ve spent most part of our time by the pool. The chateau lights by nights are just magic…
