Chateau

SET AMID THE BORDEAUX VINES

Chic and beautifully appointed.... yet family-friendly and comfortable. Relaxed and informal but always impressive. Luxury without pretension. It's a difficult trick to pull off but we think we've done it....

Region

SET AMID THE BORDEAUX VINES

The Dordogne river meanders through the vines, past medieval villages like the UNESCO World Heritage Site of St. Emilion until it arrives in the wine making capital that is Bordeaux. Rural France is tranquil, slow-paced and relaxed. Spend your time visiting chateaux and wine tasting, cycling, canoeing, or just relaxing in the sunshine.

Chateau Rigaud for weddings, for parties, for relaxing

It's just what you'd hope for from a medieval chateau in the modern age. Chef theatre in the open kitchen, while the fully stocked "chapel" cocktail bar delivers Espresso Martinis into the small hours. The massage and treatment room, small gym and cinema will aid your recovery while the smaller people crash about in the fully equipped nursery. Our events barn accommodates 150 guests and the two pools and adventure playground will add to the fun. All this is set in 12 acres of very private landscaped gardens and productive grounds amid the vines.

 

The chateau's theatre-style kitchen is the beating heart of the house where our chefs cook entirely from scratch using ingredients that are either grown on site or sourced from local suppliers. Grab a glass of wine from the bar and pull up a stool to watch them at work. We're extremely proud of what they create, which never fails to impress our guests who often cite it as the highlight of their stay.
