You can take the city tourism train to stop at this château. It's 10 euros for the train trip and a stop to taste at the château. We visited the monolith cave and the wine we tasted was very good.

Unfortunately the attitude of the gentleman who guided us around the chateau and caves wasn't great and kept addressing us as 'English people' which, yes we are, but this was unnecessary and became a little rude after several times. There were also references to England...More

On a hot day, we went with friends on the little train, which afforded breathtaking views of the country side around Saint Emilion. The commentary was a bit loud and seemed like advertisements for the various chateaux that we passed, but nevertheless it was enjoyable....More
