Château La Tour de Chollet lies in the peaceful rolling countryside just 10 minutes from the ancient bastide town of Sainte Foy La Grande and 30 minutes from Bergerac and St Emilion, in the world renowned Bordeaux wine region. We are a 20 acre, family run organic vineyard producing award winning red, white and rosé wines. .

Our B&B (self catering also available) is a wine lovers paradise offering guests a unique opportunity to stay on an organic working vineyard, to relax in the calm and tranquil surroundings and to explore our adjoining vineyards and beautiful countryside.

The independent 2 bedroom residence is only let to one family or group at a time and has its own private access. It has a bathroom, living room, dining room and kitchen making it ideal for families or longer stays, under 2s are free when staying in parents room. There is free wifi throughout.

Both bedrooms are air conditioned and centrally heated so are suitable for a visit all year round.

The bathroom is downstairs and has a toilet, wash basin and shower.

The apartment is child friendly with cot, stair gates, high chairs and toys all available.

The residence is at the north end of of our old french farmhouse, it comprises the tower you can see in the photograph and then the other rooms are part of the farmhouse and are private from our house.

The entrance is in the tower and you go into the living room, immediately to the right is a spiral staircase to La Tour, the double room. Off of the living room is the bathroom, go through the living room to the kitchen. Through the kitchen you enter the dining room which has stairs up to the family room.

We have 20 acres of organic vineyards which you are welcome to explore, and a picnic area under the fruit trees. We have a wild flower meadow (best seen in May & June) with trails mown through the long grasses.

The room price includes a delicious continental breakfast, a guided tour of the vineyard and a wine tasting in the chai.

About Kirstie Rowbotham

Kirstie & Paul Rowbotham moved here in 2006 with their 9 month old son Benjamin, Jacques their second son was born in France in 2007.

We've always been wine lovers and after a years sabbatical from our jobs in 2003, when we worked on a vineyard in the Lot valley, we fell in love with France and with the vineyard life and moved out here in 2006.

We farm our vines organically and produce award winning red, white and rose wines which are of the terroir.

We love to welcome guests to our home and look forward to chatting over a nice glass of (our) wine!

Kirstie Rowbotham purchased this chateau / country house in 2006

Why Kirstie Rowbotham chose Libourne area

We wanted to be within the Bordeaux Wine Appellation.

It is beautiful countryside here, quiet and tranquil.

We wanted a traditional stone house that we could accommodate us and all of our family and friends.

We had very specific criteria to meet in terms of the vineyard and we also had to be within 30 minutes of a good golf course (for my Dad!), not that we ever get a chance to play as we're far too busy in the vines!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

We are a working vineyard, and we do all the work ourselves, from the pruning in the winter, ploughing in the spring, the weeding in the summer and the harvesting and wine making in the autumn.

We offer a unique opportunity to get a real insight into what a vineyard really is and how it works.

You'll also get to sample the end results!

We have two boys aged 11 & 9 so the whole property is set up for children, the apartment is child friendly, the swimming pool and gardens are fully enclosed and there are plenty of toys and games, including trampolines and football nets. Our boys love to meet and play with other children (even the girls if they must!!)

Guestbook comments from the manager

We love your wines and it has been a pleasure at last to meet you and tour the vineayard. We are both so impressed by all you have achieved, and we intend to carry on enjoying La Tour de Chollet wines for many years to come.
