Feedback from previous guests

A rather belated note to say how much we enjoyed our holiday in Bordeaux staying at your Chateau. It was very spacious, well appointed and well equipped (especially the kitchen) and the pool and surrounding area were superb. We loved eating outside on the terrace and the garden was great for exploring - tomatoes, plums delicious. G made the best plum frangipani tart for us! F (aged 7) went to great effort to write the thank you letter from all of us and in his words it says how we all felt :
From F (aged 7)
I loved the entire house.

I liked the big, deep pool for swimming and diving.

Family Elstob, UK




Dear Jane, we have all had a thoroughly enjoyable 2 weeks at your adorable chateau. Sadly we must leave this oasis tomorrow.

When B asked me where I wanted to go this summer to celebrate (?) my 50th birthday, I decided on Bordeaux .. an area I have never visited except by proxy wine menus. She searched for a great place and we have all been exceptionally pleased with the result.

We have enjoyed time out and about in Bordeaux, St Emilion and Libourne. We have enjoyed wine tasting and particularly at Chateau Mazaris. The car will be a lot heavier on the way back and we have a wine delivery soon after we get home. We will have many bottles to drink over the next few years to remind us of our lovely time here.

The tennis and pool were so enjoyable. We love the chateau inside. It is very well equipped. Access to BBC sport, for me in particular during the olympics was a big plus. Your restaurant recommendations were excellent. We would really love to come back one day.

Family King, London, UK




Dear Jane, thank you for the opportunity to spend a marvellous week in your wonderful home .. Chateau La Roque. We have enjoyed magnificent wines, great meals .. and the comfort of the Chateau. We have played and laughed through a memorable vacation. Thanks for everything.

Ashford/Daley Family, NY, Sydney and Melbourne




This message is dedicated to B and B Buick, Angus Scotland for their 50 years in marriage celebration who brought together loving family from Western Australia and Scotland. One day we hope to be together in another wonderful setting such as Chateau La Roque … this had and will always be a holiday of a life time to remember. Au revoir and thank you.

The Buick Family, Scotland and Australia




Dear Jane, It has been such a pleasure staying in your beautiful home, We love the whole area, the wineries, the food, the whole experience and we will definitely be back.

It has been an absolute pleasure to stay here. To be honest my husband and I dont normally stay in villas, it is always hotels. But your home made us feel so at ease. We cooked and stayed in 2 evenings and it was really lovely to have the children lounge around and be relaxed. We have always worried what sort of facilities we would find. But your house is so well equipped with a great kitchen and good bathrooms. And your taste in decor made it a pleasant stay … very homely and very special. Thank you

The Tzelepis Family, Australia




We had a splendid family gathering. We have played lots of games and read lots of books. The weather has been a little cruel to us which did not hamper our ability to enjoy your lovely swimming pool and tennis court. We have had some excellent visits (St Emilion, Chateau de la Riviere, Bordeaux) and some great meals out (Libourne, Montagne, Chez Carles) .. so many thanks for all the tips. Thank you for an excellent holiday with best wishes

The Wright Family, Australia




Dear Jane, thank you very much for allowing our family of 6 experience your wonderful château. It is in a terrific spot, so very central to a host of different activities, sites, locations etc.. Could have stayed much longer! A week is such a short amount of time to see/do ll that this wonderful area has to offer! I guess we will just have to come back in the future to finish it all! So many thanks again

Devlin Family - NJ, USA




Dear Jane, there are so many wonderful comments in this book - and here on the last page is another! Our family has reconnected here at your fab home. It has become “our home away from home”. What a privilege to spend 3 weeks here! Yves (tennis coach) and Karen (French teacher) were fantastic .. surpassing all expectations! Katriona and J L were AMAZING … they made me feel so comfortable. Your support and organisation contributed immensely to our fantastic family stay. Thank you and best wishes

Knight Family - Singapore




Sightseeing, walking, jogging, hiking, tennis, swimming, wine tasting... this place has it all: including a wonderful château and grounds. We enjoyed it to the fullest and will have great memories.
