Reviewed October 23, 2013

We have just returned from a two night stay in this wonderful place. The staff were very attentive taking the time to speak with us in English as our French was so poor. Our room overlooked the courtyard, was very spacious, clean and comfortable.
The grounds are lovely, very peaceful. Yes, there are trains, but they did not disturb us at all, in fact we slept so well, we nearly missed breakfast!
The meal in the restaurant will go down as one of our "memorable meals" as it was superb, the wine tour was all in French - obviously, but we still enjoyed it.
Overall I would recommend this place and return both for the hospitality and it's position.

We stayed 2 nights this October in this attractive chateau. Our room overlooked the courtyard, room number 5, and was clean and very comfortable.
We had one evening meal in the Chateau which was an excellent gourmet menu, beautifully presented. A lovely relaxing stay.

What a fantastic, relaxing and comfortable place to stay with a chilled ambience. The staff (or should I say family - they felt so familiar) were brilliant being attentive but not over powering or pushy. The settings were very well manicured and the property meticulously cleaned regularly. We took the evening meal on two occasions and were delighted to be treated to spectacular gourmet cooking. Thank you for making our stay so pleasant and here's looking forward to booking another few days when we are next in Bordeaux.

Stayed at the end of August for 2 nights. Been given a suite with living room and a bedroom.
The service was more than attentive and very very friendly. Yes there were trains passing by but nothing like mid-night or early in the morning. We barely noticed any noise.
Barsac was not the main stop so you are suggested either to drive or have to check the train schedule from Bordeaux carefully. But the hotel is literally right behind the train station. Less than 5 mins walk.

We had the dinner at the hotel on the first night and it was excellent. Chef was nice and did the duck breast justice. He asked us what we would like our duck cooked and we got what we wish for. Perfect. Your table will be laid in advance and facing the right view.
For Euro 35 per person, you get a 3-course dinner, 1 bottle of sparkling/still water, glass of aperitifs sweet wine and a bottle of red/white. The tart tartan was so far the best we had in France. Way much better than anything you got in Paris' touristic areas. Money well-spent.

The wine tour was held at a boutique vineyard. Nothing spectacular (no machine, no walk-through the vineyard) but really cosy. You would be given at least 2 different years of sweet wine to try and feel free to ask for a top-up.

Breakfast - plenty of supply - it's not a self-service buffet but that exactly what service meant. Again, all tables were laid in advance with a basket of bread and if you finish it, the lady will come and ask you if you want some more. Choice of jams, honey and butter. Free flow of orange juice (ask when you finish it) and tea and coffee. It's definitely not mean.

It may not fit for those who are used to chain hotels such as Holiday Inn or Hilton but it's a lovely small hotel and gives you more than you need.

Unfortunately we had a one night stay, wished it was longer. Friendly helpful receptionist. Evening meal + wine was amazing value, one of the best meals I have had in a while. Set in lovely countryside, vin yards.

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.
