Super charming place.

We were there with friends and had a great time in the beautiful chateau. The rooms are big and the pool is great. You can buy the chateau´s own very good wine at fine prices. It´s really recommendable.

Great! Come and visit us during the harvest season and enjoy the busy and tense atmosphere.

A Wonderful Holiday At Beautiful Chateau Gourran

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in August at Chateau Gourran. When we drove up to the chateau we were blown away by its beauty and size, it really was so much more than we had imagined! We were warmly greeted by Claus who showed us round the chateau, the rooms are enormous, with high ceilings and a real sense of grandeur, but furnished with a simplistic style, so you weren't worried the children would break something! Claus also showed us the stock of wine grown and produced on sit, that had been put there for us to purchase if we wished (we did and enjoyed very much). There are six huge bedrooms all with ensuites. We were really impressed with that fact that all of the bedrooms and bathrooms were large and very similar which made deciding on who was sleeping where very easy. The showers were great too!

We loved eating outside on both the large tables by the pool and by the kitchen, the local produce is delicious and ate enormous tomatoes, delicious cheeses and fresh bread for lunch everyday!

We all enjoyed the pool which was cleaned every morning. It is very sheltered by the pool and a real sun trap.

We had a really interesting tour of the vineyard and wine production at the chateau, finished off with a wine tasting. It was great to see and drink wine that was 100% grown and produced on site.

The area is stunning, you can walk for miles through vineyards, a really peaceful location, but so easily reached from the airport. Even with getting a little lost we were at the chateau 40 mins after collecting our rental car from Bordeaux airport.

We mostly ate at the chateau, but did enjoy a lovely meal in Langourin at Brasserie St Martin.

Practice your French before you go and enjoy this amazing place.

Can't wait to return one day! Thanks to Claus, Peter and Tine for a wonderful stay.

Great Chalet experience!

  • 5 of 5

We where a group of 12 people staying at the wunderfull chalet in august and staying for a week. The place is perfect for a group of that size!

We enjoyed the tennis court, swimming pool, pool table, great bed rooms, great living room, nearby wine district and the fully equiped kitchen! We would greatly recommend this place to anyone!

Best regards,

Aesculapius Denmark

Owner's Response: Thanks Aesculapius. You put your finger on an important advantage of Château Gourran. To live 12 people together in one house may come to seem crowded. Our 700 m2 with many large rooms offer a good combination of community and privacy. We hope to accommodate you again some time in the future. Team Château Gourran

Great stay at Chateaux Gourran!

  • 5 of 5

We where very happy with our stay at Chateau Gourran and will definitely come back! The rooms where big and bright with plenty of space for all of us. The pool was very nice and clean. The kitchen was well equiped, and we had a great dinner served by the housekeeper Getang! We played tennis and found some great running routes! The area around the castle was great, with a lot of good wine tasting possibility's!

Owner's Response: Thank You Jacob L. and co. This is what we are happy to offer our guests. Hope to have you here again. We have to admit that the state of the tennis court is not ideal, therefore we do not include tennis in our advertise.

Perfect vacation at atmospheric Chateau

  • 5 of 5

We are addicted to this place which we this summer came back to for the sixt time. We were 3 families who enjoyed a fantastic week with wonderful days by the pool, guided tour in the Chateau's own winery, trips to St.Emilion, and to the Atlantic where the youngsters had some great surfing experiences. But in general you don't want to leave this place when you are there. The photos tell the tale, and the description og the place is very modest. Everything worked properly, and the service was impeccable. The very large pool and the associated outdoor dining area with barbecue facilities forms a natural center for all activities at this Chateau. Even the place's own wine Chateau Gourran is an extraordinary good experience.

I can strongly recommend this place to anyone who really would like a pleasant vacation in an unigue atmospheric environment. You get most out of the place by being a large group of 8-12 persons, which everything is well suited for.
