What a beautiful and peaceful place Stephane & his family have just a short drive from the historical centre of Saint Emilion. Our accommodation was perfect. The room was clean, comfortable & large. From the moment we arrived we felt as though we had picked the perfect B&B from our room, the lovely Chateau, swimming pool, gardens, breakfast and assistance... More

From the minute we arrived Stephane and his familiy made us feel most welcome into their picturesque Chateau. Tucked away on the edge of a quiet village....just a few miles from St Emilion, our spotlessly clean, four poster bedroom opened straight out onto the terrace and Swimming pool. A delicious continental breakfast was laid out and waiting for us each... More

We cycled in 4 distinct areas of France in July 2011; staying a week in each area. Chateau St Jacques Calon was without a doubt our best accomodation and experience. We felt as if we were staying with family; from our host, Stephan, to his parents and the dogs. He was very helpful with directions, reservations and even as far... More

The rooms and bathrooms are comfortable and well appointed although noise from adjoining rooms is distracting/annoying. Stephane, his parents and the two dogs are very welcoming and the whole ambiance at Chateau St Jacques Calon is relaxed and reserved. Breakfast by the private swimming pool is excellent and the gardens and the surrounding vineyards provide a respite from the crowds... More

We had a fantastic trip to France with our stay at Chateau St. Jacques Calon being one of the highlights. The room we stayed in opened onto the patio, pool and garden. We started every morning and finished every night on the beautiful patio. The room was fantastic as well. The owner's and their son, Stephan, made the stay so... More

My husband and I spent a week at the Chateau, joined for three nights by our adult son who is currently living in Andorra. We all adored to beautiful location and surrounds. Our delightful host, Stephane, was a wonderful source of information and helped book a wine school for my husband and son, a wine tasting for us all, and... More

My husband Steve and I moved to Bordeaux from London two years ago for business reasons. My parents in law were in town earlier this month and offered to watch the children so Steve and I could enjoy some time alone. We stayed at Saint Jacques Calon for two nights. We paid 99€ for a large double room overlooking the... More

We stayed here for two nights at the end of August. The Chateau looked beautiful on the website so we decided to book from this. The room opened onto the pool and had a four-poster bed which was lovely. It was also possible to park in the grounds too. Stephanes father had two lovely dogs who would greet you every... More

we picked this bed and breakfast for the friendly description by the proprietor (formerly a manager at ritz hotels) of his special touches and care for his guests. Unfortunately, this appears to be well-tuned ritz hyperbole, and we received lukewarm treatment, fairly standard breakfast, and a rather unremarkable room in a rather standard, albeit large, french house of stone. It... More

Charming Chateau is easily accessible from the train station in Libourne and to the beautiful town of Saint Emilion. The grounds and rooms were beautiful and intimate - but the best part is Stephane, whose parents own and reside in the Chateau. His service, from the time you inquire about the lodging to the second you depart, is impeccable and... More
