“Lovely stay at domaine de Valmont”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

We had a lovely stay at Domaine de Valmont (3-7th August) on a Lioving Social deal. Lovely surroundings; excellent room; evening meals in restaurant were delicious and excellent value; freiendly staff; nice gift upon departure; thoroughly enjoyed our visit to local vineyard. No hesitation in recommending. Maurice and Fiona, Bath, England.

Room Tip: We were fortunate to be in room 10 which was more like a self catering apartment, but lots of rooms...

Food fabulous and service was very friendly. In a very small, quiet place - so ideal for a relaxed quiet base from which to explore surrounding vineyards and the wine tour was great. The hotel is very nice, within pretty grounds and a lovely outside eating area. There isn't much in the town itself so you would want to be aware of this and be able to travel a short way to eat out.

The grounds are peaceful and beautiful. The hosts were lovely. It was the "real chateau"experience. I felt like I was in a movie. However, if you are hungry you may run into trouble! Our hosts were kind and booked a restaurant for us. We were very late and it was closed. Entirely our fault. Then finding anything to eat was a challenge.

The chateau is isolated. I loved that aspect but it does mean that not having even a simple meal, such as a cheese platter or simple sandwiches available is a problem. Having said all of the above, when I explained we would be happy with some simple bread and cheese, our hosts produced a lovely plate which we were happy to have as our lunch.

The region is the home of fantastic produce so it will be lovely if the hosts use it to make simple food available at most times of the day and evening.

We stayed here on a tour around Bordeaux for one night following a recommendation in our guide book. It is a really beautiful place, with a small park around it and perfect sitting places for dinner and breakfast next to a decorative pool, surrounded by the two wings of the building. The rooms are nice, only lacking air conditioning (we stayed during a very hot period).

The package for one night (159-179€ for two persons, very fair price) includes breakfast, dinner, a short tour to a nearby winery (if you want) and a bottle of wine + a can of foie gras to take home.
After coming back from the wine tour we settled for dinner around 8.30pm - and it took more than one hour (!) until we finally got something to drink. This was one of the signs that the service was way to slow (it was a single woman for the whole restaurant), who was obviously completely stressed and so could not manage to do it well enough. She told us, that this was not normal and we still enjoyed the great food, but this endless waiting for every step strongly affected the impression. For breakfast it was the same again - one service woman doing everything and so people started putting away used plates themselves to find a table in the shadow. We therefore got the impression it is a general problem that they don't get the appropriate number of staff there.

I still liked the place as it is truely beautiful, but the restaurant has to get more service staff to fit to the otherwise nice standard of hotel and very good food. If this is improved I can fully recommend to stay there!

We stayed on a French Group on deal as per previous review I have done we now are lucky to live in France. Finding the hotel was slightly tricky due to one way system but nothing a bit of driving around the block resolved this. We where warmly welcomed by Fabion a lovely lady who spoke good English but we where happy to chat in some French as we are trying to improve all the time. Room as mentioned in other reviews was spacious with kitchen bedroom lounge with fold out bed. We where booked for the evening meal on our second night but was happy to change to first night. Meal was excellent with a glass of sauternais to start and then a bottle of wine with meal included. Breakfast was classic French which was fine and served outside overlooking the grounds and fountain. We went to 2 wine tastings which were informative. Yes it was hot and the room was warm but we found the fan fine and we slept fine, it is next to a rail track but again was not a problem for us . included in our deal was a gift of wine and foie gras which was given to us on leaving. We enjoyed our stay staff where lovely, only minor quibble is that there was no bar to get a drink which would have been nice early evening but kitchen did have a fridge so if you want a cold one just bring a pack of whatever. We are planning to return also ring direct you will get as good a deal as using the social living or group on sites to book.

We stayed here too on a Social Living deal,great value,fantastic hotel,easy to find with lots of parking.The staff were very friendly and all spoke good English when your French fails you ! The rooms were comfortable and typically French, the dinning was excellent as was the wine. We also took part in a wine tasting which was very entertaining !Everything that we were told we would get we did and it was all very good. The area is fairly quiet but the town of Cadillac is only a couple of miles away if you need other things to do.

We loved our stay here and would highly recommend it, our room was lovely and we had a good view, we also enjoyed our evening meal in the restaurant the food was amazing and for 35€ per head with wine was great value. Fabian is lovely and friendly and speaks really good English and makes you feel at home.
Can't wait to come back with our friends!
