Chateau Ormes de Pez
Reviewed 29 August 2012 via mobile

My husband and I recently spent 3 nights at the Chateau and thought it was amazing.

It is a little pricey for a B&B but what they don't tell you is that you have swimming pool, huge garden, beautiful terrace, lounge areas and the use of the kitchen which is makes it exceptional value for money!

Giles, who runs the chateau, is very helpful cannot do enough for you. He booked us into a few chateaus which were very interesting and the wine was very good. He also suggested we visit st julien and eat in the restaurant there. WOW is all I can say! If you are in the location you would be made not to go there!!

We really enjoyed our time in the chateau and the region and would highly recommend it.

My gf and I just spent a scheduled two nights but decided to stay an extra because of how much we enjoyed Ormes de Pez. Giles our host was incredible in all aspects. I actually almost ran us out of gas and therefore we missed our dinner reservation and he put together the perfect snack for us to enjoy in our room and watch the olympics which turned a would-be disasterous evening into something special. The chateau was exectly the experience I wanted to have in France and especially Bordeaux. It was the biggest room and most comfortable bed that I experienced out of 7 different hotels and B&Bs throughout France and Spain. We will be back.

Room Tip: I left the windows open and got eaten by mesquito's - my own fault but just a warning.

We stayed a single night in July. Our room on the ground floor was tastefully decorated - with beautiful furniture, fabrics and wallpaper. The bathroom was large with white tiles and a bathtub. Our room overlooked the huge, well-kept garden. The pool area is quiet with a nice, deep pool and sunbeds. Gilles, the host at Ch. Ormes de Pez, was very helpful and his English is excellent. Included in the room rate (€145) is breakfast and a tour and tasting at Ch. Lynch Bages. We can highly recommend this place if you are looking for a quiet place to stay while visiting some of the most famous chateaus in the world.

Met up with friends from Australia here in early July. We were perfectly looked after, comfortable rooms, a lovely dinner, delicious wines. Nothing seemed a problem. Our host booked us dinner on the Monday night and pointed us in the right direction, He also organised two trips to vineyards. A great place to celebrate my 50th birthday. Thank You!

Only suggestion woudl be if they could have bicycles to borrow from the Chateau as the countryside was lovely to wander in - and very few cars.

Room Tip: Did not see upstairs rooms but the two suites downstairs were lovely with access onto the terrace an...

We stayed here for several nights this past May. We stayed upstairs in 'Leonie'. A beautiful old world room with a view over the vineyards, nice bathroom with bath and huge comfortable bed. The floors were a bit creaky but we just figured out how to walk around the creaks.

Plenty of parking. It was very peaceful and serene. We slept with the windows wide open so we could hear the birds chirping. The morning sunshine streaming into our top-floor room was a lovely.

Jean Michel Cazes owns both this and Chateau Lynch-Bages so you can get a wine tasting without having to pay the 7 euro fee. Chateau Lynch-Bages is very close... only a few minutes drive from Chateau Ormes de Pez.

Breakfast is chocolate and plane croissants (which I assume come from the Bakery in Bages) selection of jams, orange juice and coffee. They will provide you with a plate of charcuterie and a bottle of local vintage which was yummy but a little expensive.

The Chateau surroundings are beautiful and we ambled around town a little bit during our stay. To say "town" though is a stretch considering it's really just what's left of an old village.

We were the only ones staying there for most of our visit so it felt like we had our own Chateau. Caretakers leave at night so you on your own if you need anything. But that made it feel all the more like it was your own house. Wifi was included. I highly recommend this as a wonderful place to stay while you are tasting the finest vintages in the world!

We stayed here for one night in Spring 2010. Our room 'Leonie' (on the top floor, 135€ for the night incl. breakfast) was beautiful - elegant, wooden floors, view over the vineyards, nice bathroom with bath, huge comfortable bed. There is parking onsite. We don't have much to say aside from it being a beautiful place and we highly recommend it. It was very peaceful, all we could hear during the afternoons and mornings were the birds chirping (and the occasional loud motorcycle). The morning sunshine streaming into our top-floor room was fantastic. As part of our stay, we were invited to visit Chateau Ormes de Pez's sister Chateau- Chateau Lynch-Bages for a tour and wine tasting without having to pay the 7 euro fee. Chateau Lynch-Bages is only about a 10 minute drive from Chateau Ormes de Pez. This was a nice touch and the Chateau tour was very informative.

Breakfast is inlcuded in the price and was huge...2 chocolate croissants, 2 croissants, toasted baguette with a selection of jams, orange juice and coffee. We also brought down some left over cheese and salami with us to accompany the breakfast provided. The food was of a high quality and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

The Chateau grounds are beautiful and are surrounded by vineyards. Apparently there is a pool, but we didnt search this out as it was far too cold to contemplate a swim. I imagine this would be a lovely option in the summer months.

Luckily, we were the only people in the four room building for the night of our stay, so we had free roam in the building (including use of the downstairs living room area) and were undisturbed (the property caretakers did not sleep in house whilst we were there). As the floor boards creak a lot, our only thought is that it might get a little bit noisy if the building were full in peak season, but we really don't know. In any case, we highly recommend it and would definately stay here again ourselves.

We stumbled on this enchanting property by randomly choosing it from the tourist guide we picked up in the Pauillac tourist office. What a stroke of luck. It was by far the best place we stayed at in the Medoc. The chateau is only for guests and has been very tastefully decorated. ( It looks as if it has recently re-decorated.) The soft furnishing are very stylish and the furniture is a mixture of modern and old. The rooms are all spacious with high ceilings. Our room had French doors opening onto a large patio where we had a picnic dinner. The huge bed was very comfortable with lots of attention to detail in the room. There was a tea tray with a selection of beverages and a biscuit snack, a lovely writing desk, cushions and a TV, which we did not even turn on. Highly recommended especially if you are interested in wine. Grape vines surround the propery.
