Our stay at Chateau de Talhouet was some time ago now, to be honest, but it was very memorable, a standard which we still refer to when staying elsewhere in France. This place came with a recommendation from Brittany Ferries which makes it sound somewhat commercial. But it was a wonderful find. We arrived to the good hospitality of the... More

It has been some time since our visit to Chateau de Talhouet and such was the experience here that it is only fair to provide a brief review. I have stayed in many, many different types of accommodation and locations, the vast majority do not merit comment and I have little enough time free to bother. But Chateau de Talhouet... More

french chateau visits often mean unnecessary formality - not the case here. At chateau talhouet, proprietor jean pol and his dogs make you feel like you are welcome guests in his home ... giving you a taste of what it would be like to live in this 15th century rural chateau that he has so lovingly restored over the last...

My boyfriend surprised me with a weekend getaway while we stayed in France for his business trip. I had no idea what to expect, especially driving deep into the woods and up to this beautiful castle. The best is when two dogs, including an Irish Wolfhound, greeted us. Jean-Pol, the owner and innkeeper, showed us to our room and we... More

We returned after 3 years and this is our favourite hotel in the world, period. The hospitality is extraordinary and you feel like you have a friend who just happens to have a small castle and fabulous chef. It is definitely a place to relax rather than for intensive sightseeing but it is really very romantic, quiet and special. Guests... More

We arrived at Chateau Talhouet following a six hour drive from the bordeaux region tired, hot and in need of serious chilling. Within moments we knew it was the right place for us; a nice welcome, lovely rooms, the two dogs, plenty of cool, calm space. We spent two nights and had dinner there both nights which was very good;... More

We spent two nights at Talhouet in September. I could have stayed forever. For me the ensemble of the property, the house, the furnishings, the food, the books, the dogs and our gracious host created a sensation of living in a fantasy - an ideal place far from the cares of the world. I loved the old stones, the comfort,... More

We stayed at the Chateau de Talhouet for our 5th anniversary in June. We arrived with high expectations from everything we had read previously. The chateau did not disappoint. Fantastic room that was remodeled true to the era with antique furniture, original woodwork, etc. Beautiful gardens, exceptional breakfast . . . just a great romantic setting. I can still taste...

What a pleasure to stay in a lovingly restored chateau, with "gentille" written all over it - from the welcome on arrival to the delicious dinner (where you are given various choices) and the breakfast (included) - the guests laze around and speak to each other - the grounds are beautiful. This house has been restored with a gentle touch... More

This grand house certainly lived up to the description on the website. The chateau was well signposted once on the right road and we were made very welcome by M. Soulaine and his two dogs. Our room was large and well appointed and we enjoyed some late September sun walking in the grounds. Drinks before and after dinner were served... More
