Reviewed 15 September 2016

A beautiful place to stay and enjoy Ann's fantastic hospitality. The attention to detail is certainly worth revisiting to discover the next chapter in this amazing place.
Ann's suggestions for dinner and local activities was very helpful.

Room Tip: All rooms are great

The welcome we received from Ann at Chateau Bavolier was tremendous, just what we needed after a long day riding in the heat - a welcome glass (or three) of fizz in the beautiful garden! The rooms were immaculate, and the whole chateau had a big 'wow' factor, particularly because we had it all to ourselves. The wifi was strong, the beds were comfy, the parking was secure, the surroundings were peaceful, the grounds were shabby-chic and the candle-lit dinner was well worth the money. I can't fault it. We had a fabulous stay.

Room Tip: The master suite is breath-takingly awesome, but the 'normal' room is pretty excellent too.

After 5 weeks traveling around France staying in Hotels and renting apartments this was the first time we booked to stay in what is really someone's home, albeit a Chateau. We booked for 2 nights and now wished we had booked for the week. We were welcomed by Ann and after showing us our beautiful room she invited us to share a bottle of Bubbles on the terrace. Would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a little peace and quiet yet still be close to the major wine areas of Bordeaux.

A three night stay at Chateau Bavolier in June 2015 was a delightful experience.
After a long flight from Australia, it was no trouble for Ann to supply an evening meal of exceptional standard. Breakfast was just a good. The rooms were excellent, & very clean..
The chateau décor takes you back into the past & is tastefully done.
The large garden gives you a sense, of being on your own.
Ann is a great host, & we would recommend a stay to all..
Cheers to you Ann,

I really don't want everyone to find out about this place, I want to keep it a secret all for myself, but I would be doing a great disservice to Ann and her wonderful Chateau Bavolier.

Firstly, we arrived up at Chateau Bavolier after a long, 18 hour overnight drive from the south of Spain. Ann greeted me like an old friend, brought us to our room and while we brought in the bags, she came back with a beautiful bottle of red for us, and a cold drink for the boys - she just knew what we needed, and when we needed it!

The room..the room, what can I say? The room..we had the Master Suite, which Ann had put two more beds in for the two boys. It was magnificent. The room was huge, with carpets you sink into, a gorgeous four poster bed, a white sofa, beautiful armoirs. A few steps lead up the bathroom...and the bathroom does not disappoint! It truly is a room with a view - you step up to the bath, and sink down into the bath, directly overlooking the garden.

The following morning, we had a great breakfast to set us up for another long drive, melon to start, eggs, toast, croissants, pain au choc, copious amounts of coffee and hot chocolate, fruit, yogurts. We wandered for a while that morning, walked around the grounds, sat in the lounge - everything to put off the moment when we had to leave.

Ann has done the most amazing job bringing this house to its full potential - it's a house that's been decorated with great care and attention to detail, and it's Ann herself that has brought the house to life.

What can I say - we have travelled the world with our boys, Europe, Asia and the US, - our 10 year old said it's a joint No. 1 with the hotel in Shanghai, and for myself and the 12 year old, it has become the outright number 1!

I can't hesitate to recommend Chateau Bavolier - it's just beautiful, elegant, peaceful, wonderful. I would go back in a heartbeat - in fact I'm trying to see if there's any way I can swing a weekend there sans enfants!!!

Room Tip: We had the Master Suite - magnificent.
