“Beautiful Chateau”
Reviewed August 18, 2010 for a stay in August 2010

Ann made us very welcome with a huge pot of tea and chilled white wine, and nothing was too much trouble. We stayed for one night only in this beautiful house and would love to return for a longer visit. Ann recommended a restaurant five minutes drive away on the lake - service and food were great with a real holiday atmosphere.

“Magical Bavolier”
Reviewed August 16, 2010 for a stay in August 2010

We had a magical stay at Chateau Bavolier. Ann Roberts has done the most amazing job lovingly restoring this atmospheric chateau. The bedrooms are magnificent, as are the breakfast and sitting rooms. Ann is an attentive and helpful hostess, providing wonderful breakfasts, not hesitating to recommend brilliant local restaurants, and helping organise day trips. We cannot recommend Chateau Bavolier enough and are hoping to return as soon as possible!

“Doesn't live up to Tripadvisor reviews”
Reviewed August 9, 2010 for a stay in July 2010
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed in Chateaux Bavolier for 6 days in July and it was booked based on the reviews I had read on Tripadvisor. 'We' being my husband and two year old daughter. I will summarise our stay under good points and bad points.

The Bad
- We did not get to stay in the larger room as advised previously but the rates are the same no matter what room you stay in.
- There are only two rooms to let so there aren't many people around for breakfast to speak to.
- For six mornings in a row we had orange juice, tea and croissants. Nothing alternative like a cereal, fruit or eggs were offered. You can imagine we were fairly fed up with croissants by day 6. We may have been spoiled in all other Chambre D'hotes that we have stayed in (a good few) but usually there is a much wider range for breakfast. I have to say however that Ann tried to accomodate our two year old and gave us coco-pops one day and milk for her weetabix the others.
- There was no fridge, tea/coffee making facilities etc in the bedroom or even a communal one (which is tres difficile with a two year old - yoghurts, juice etc) and we had to store our bits in cold water in the bath, which our host would have seen each day when cleaning and didn't offer an alternative solution.
- There was no shower curtain so the shower water sprayed all over the place, or any toiletries (apart from liquid soap). I thought that was a bit minimalistic even though I always use my own!
- We felt like we were staying at a friend of a friends house and had outstayed our welcome.
- There is no internet access or computer however Ann leant us her laptop for a short time twice.
- There was very little reading material about things to do in the area, places to go, places to eat etc and none recommended by our host.
- The worst part - when we arrived to find our deposit cheque (Euro350) on the table we were shocked to discover that it hadn't been cashed months previously when we sent it, so we had to cough up the goods in total for our stay instead of just half which we were expecting. Not everyone are like us but we hadn't double checked this and weren't expecting it. Ann stated that it cost Euro18 for her to cash the cheque but that's hardly our problem. We should have been informed of this or asked to pay by cc or cash at the time of booking.
- There is no swimming pool and we didn't feel comfortable staying around during the day to rest or sunbathe.

The Good
- Ann is a very nice host, there are just a few things missing compared to the Chambre D'hotes we visited previously and following our stay at Chateaux Bavolier.
- Ann's grandchildren live at the house and are adoreable and were good buddies for our daughter during the stay.
- When we decided to leave a day earlier than planned (we had overlapped the booking on our second weeks accomodation by one night) Ann did not charge us for the last night so that was pretty fair.

“perfect location for quality relaxation time”
Reviewed July 26, 2010 for a stay in July 2010

My husband and I have just had a two day break at Ann Robert's wonderfully restored chateau - she's attentive to individual needs, cooks and serves a wonderful 4 course dinner with locally sourced food. Whilst there are only two guest bedrooms it proved to be the perfect place to 'chill out' and relax. We stayed in the master bedroom (photograph on the chateau's website) and it comes complete with sunken bath in the ensuite. Two very relaxing days - thanks to Ann, our hostess for a wonderful time!!! (Christine & Frank)

“Perfection in every way”
Reviewed July 23, 2010 for a stay in July 2010

Chateau Bavolier has been beautifully restored which is a great credit to the owner. We arrived late afternoon after a long hot journey and were greeted by Ann with chilled Champagne which was the perfect start to our holiday. Ann is the perfect hostess. On entering the Chateau your breath is taken away by the amazing and tastful decoration. It is the perfect place to stay if you want total quiet and relaxation. We very much hope to return in the not too distant future.


Ann is the perfect hostess

“Perfect all the way”
Reviewed June 14, 2010 for a stay in June 2010

The reviews for this chateau were not overstated. Although first impressions of the outside are a little underwhelming, once you step inside, the ambience, cleanliness and pure charm become overwhelming. Ann is, as many have stated, the perfect host. She migrated from England some five years ago to passionately go about renovating this charming old property and it is an absolute credit to her. She recommended the restaurant, Au Sarment. Read the reviews already on tripadvisor for this one, they are all true – it was one of the most magnificent meals ever, and a highlight of our trip to Southern France..

So, how to spend the perfect weekend? Stay at Chateau Bavolier and luxuriate in the master suite pretending you are fabulously wealthy and that you always stay in bedrooms the size of a small apartment. Admire the unbelievable chandelier after you alight from the sunken bath. Partake of a great breakfast prepared by Ann to start the day. Visit St Emilion, just under one hour away for a spot of wine tasting. Then dine at Au Sarment. Ahhh…, it just doesn’t get much better than that.
