Location

In the midst of the Bordeaux vineyards, in the Côtes-de-Castillon region which extends that of Saint-Emilion. 30 minutes from Libourne and its TGV train station, 90 minutes from Bordeaux airport.

Ruins of windmills indicate that cereal crops were also once grown locally. The wine produced here has been give the Castillon-Côtes-de-Bordeaux appellation since 2009

Description

This property stands on a hillside, amongst the vines, with the buildings set out around a south-facing courtyard. The main house, spanning 500 m², comprises 6 bedrooms including 3 used for accommodating guests. At a slight distance is a second house, awaiting full renovation works and spanning more than 140 m². Two solid stone wings are set at right angles. One houses an old wine storehouse, spanning approx. 100 m²; the second, spanning approx. 300 m², comprises the wine-making facilities, a vat and a barrel storehouse. In a corner of the courtyard is a swimming pool, near to a vast canopy adjoined to the wine storehouse.
These buildings, spanning more than 1,000 m², are in a good state of repair. One section was recently restored. A farm shed for machinery completes the outbuildings.

The main house

The main house, set at the end of the courtyard, is laid out longwise over two stories. The architecture features a collection of successive additions, creating rooms, covered areas and courtyards. Most of these through rooms face south.
The entrance hall provides access, right, to a small lounge and, left, to a large kitchen-dining room as well as a study area. The modern, sober and elegant, fitted kitchen has a central unit. A hall area at the back leads to a laundry room, a toilet and a storeroom.
The dining room provides direct access to the wine-making storehouse. The main stairway goes up to a corridor leading to 3 bedrooms with their own private bathrooms.

Our opinion

Some of these old, exposed stone buildings are given over to making wine from the 10 ha, with Castillon-Côtes-de-Bordeaux appellation, using modern facilities. Others were recently renovated, enhancing stone, wood and the old decorative features to create rooms in which the owners and their guests feel at home. All the buildings are set out around a south-facing courtyard looking out over a pleasant landscape of vines and trees.
