Chateau Carbonneau is an imposing building with beautifully decorated rooms, each of individual character and all with superb bathrooms and enchanting views. The owners are both very welcoming and informative. We much enjoyed the wine-tasting and all the details that Wilfred, our host, gave us during our tour of the cellars, and the food that Jacquie, his wife, prepared was... More

A marvellous place - full of light and calm. The Chateau itself is a welcoming family home with large rooms looking out over the vineyards, grounds and farmland. Jacquie is a superb host and the meals in the evening are a wonderful chance to meet and talk to people from all over Europe - as wel as strong representation from... More

Sadly we only stayed for two nights, but they were both memorable and left us with a desire for more! The property is beautifully sited with lush gardens and restful surrounds. The Chateaux is all one could wish for, but what makes it is the chatelaine! Jacquie is both charming and attentive to her guests. Nothing was too much trouble... More

As a long standing resident in the area I have always admired the beautiful Chateau Carbonneau. With its gracious facade and stunning conservatory seen from the top of a long tree-lined drive it has seemed a fairy tale destination. To my delight I discovered recently that the delightful and friendly owners have opened one of their pretty outbuildings as a... More

The only problem was that we hadn't booked to stay longer! If you are looking for somewhere from which to explore the area or simply for a hotel in which you can relax, undisturbed by the pace of modern life, then look no further than Wilfred and Jacqui's beautiful, comfortable and elegant Chateau. We will certainly be staying longer next... More

We have stayed at the Chateau Carbonneau for the last 3 years staying longer each time (8 days this year). It is a charming mixture of styles - the French bucolic and the New Zealand informal. Wilfrid has a professional knowledge of Bordeaux wines and makes excellent reds and whites of the Ste Foy Appellation Bordeaux Controle. Jacquie looks after... More

Jacqui and Wilfred, the engaging hosts at this wonderful chateau made our 2 day stay a special treat. The chateau, garden, pool and our room were beautiful. Jacqui not only provided our breakfasts but also a three course dinner full of flavour and served on the balcony. Wilfred's wine choices were a wonderful complement to the meal and dinner conversation.... More

We stayed at Chateau Carbonneau in late May 2014. It was exceptional. The setting amongst the vines and gardens is absolutely beautiful. The rooms are spacious and thoughtfully decorated, all with expansive views over the grounds. Even our bathroom was enormous. Breakfast - either in the dining room, or on the terrace (we enjoyed both) - is a delicious start... More

We stayed with Jacqui and Wilfred at their Chateau in May and had a lovely time. We were there to attend a wedding at Chateau Rigaud, which is nearby. Chateau Carbonneau has a lovely patio, garden room, pond, and pool. It's an active working winery and farm as there are cows on the property. Wilfred gave us a tour one... More
