Chateau Bavolier
Ranked #5 of 8 Blaye B&B and Inns
Reviewed 6 June 2017

I stayed at Chateau Bavolier for four nights with my wife and three children. The Chateau is stunning and the work that Ann has done to bring the property back to life is a superb achievement. The high ceilings together with the amazing windows and doors really are special. Ann made us feel so welcome that by the time we left we felt like members of the family. We shared the property with other guests on the last couple of nights and our privacy was never compromised, breakfasts were wonderful and Ann makes a mean cup of coffee. My stay at Chateau Bavolier felt really special and we would stay with Ann again without any hesitation when we visit Bordeaux next.

Room Tip: All the rooms are spectacular.

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,
