We stayed at Chateau Bavolier in 2010 and since we enjoyed it so much and we would be close, decided to stay again. Once again Anne gave us a wonderful welcome, we truly felt like old friends even though we had only stayed one night. We were able to have dinner in the Chateau....delicious and very enjoyable. The room is so spacious and beautifully decorated that you feel like royalty and breakfast was as good as we remembered. We shall definitely repeat if we are in the area.
It was was a beautiful chateau with perfect service. Master suite, living room and dining room with tastefull decoration and wonderful garden view, plenty of space and awesome bath with sunken bathtub. We had a wonderful time.
Thanks Ann for a wonderful stay. We used Chateau Bavolier as a stopover for a couple of nights and it was perfect for us. Champagne on arrival with Ann and plenty of suggestions for places to eat/visit. The room was excellent and extremely large even with four of us in there. Massive garden with swings/slide for the kids to play on. Lovely breakfast! Thanks Ann, would recommend to anyone.
We stayed at Chateau Bavolier at the beginning of this month, August 2014. The Chateau is absolutely beautiful, straight out of a storybook. Ann's grandchildren greeted us with homemade gifts for our daughter and Ann greeted us with a bottle of Champagne. We felt at home immediately. To my daughter, Ann is "Nana." Ann and her family were so much fun! We had dinner the first night at the Chateau, which was wonderful. We followed Ann's suggestions for places to go and things to see, which were all perfect. We are so thankful we found this place!
We had a fantastic stay at "Chateau Bavolier".The rooms are unique and very comfortable,great also for the antique lover.The owner,cook,hostess Ann Roberts is a great lady and made us feel so welcome.The surrounding areas, St.Emilion,Bordeaux city,Medoc and nearby vineyards are all within easy reach and make for a great day out.
I will definitely return to "Chateau Bavolier", and in the meantime urge you to go and sample a little piece of paradise.

We stayed here a year ago (I'm a bit delayed in writing my trip advisor reviews!) I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but the tripadvisor reviews looked good and the photos on their website seemed like it would be a charming place to stay. My expectations were extremely far surpassed! Ann, the owner was incredibly helpful and friendly, from offering to meet us in the town centre after we got lost when trying to find the chateau, to the complimentary bottle of wine she drank with us in the gardens, to recommending places to see and eat at. A little local knowledge went a long way in a small town setting. And the house, room and grounds themselves were the most charming place I think I have ever stayed. The grounds were perfectly manicured with ivy growing from crumbling stone walls, antique furniture, lovely French décor and a very generous complimentary breakfast. I wish we had stayed much longer, but it was definitely worth taking this detour in Bordeaux!! And after a few nights in Paris, the cost of staying here seemed like a too-good-to-be-true bargain!
The hostess, owner, Ann Roberts made our experience and stay the very best time. The historic estate is not the easiest to find on the first attempt, but Ann stated in the phone and gave driving directions since it was late evening and waited until we arrived. The suite is a fairy tale room with abundant space, antique furnishings and chandeliers. A sunken bath makes a perfect ending to each busy day. Breakfast was delightful including yogurt, fruit, beverages, and even scrambled eggs. Ann also took the time to sit outside in the veranda with us one evening and chatted up a storm. Her personal story combined with the rich history of the home is worth knowing. We highly recommend a restful, quiet sleep after a full day journey in the wine country.
