Chateau Julie is just perfect... in location for Bordeaux Airport - 30 mins by car - and in style - stylish yet homely. We stayed there at the end of our holiday. It's just outside the little village of Virsav. We were blown away by it. It really is that nice. All the rooms are named after countries and we got Espagne, on the first floor. There are three large shuttered windows, in a very spacious room with seating, a desk and comfortable twin beds (put together as one kingsize). The ensuite bathroom is large - there is a bath and a separate shower enclosure, with cerise and lime coloured towels. That's the good, now for the bad. The floors are wooden so you will hear some noise from an upstairs room. It was also very hot when we were there and there is no air conditioning in the bedroom. You must have at least one meal at Chateau Julie. It was 30 euros for 3 courses and coffee. Chef Rinse presented us with a mouth-watering menu of carpaccio stuffed with rocket and pine nuts, followed by a magret du canard, then a tempting cheese selection or dessert. And of course it must be complemented with one of the chateau's own wines. Renee served a plentiful breakfast the next morning. Husband and wife team Rinse and Renee are very welcoming, friendly and helpful. We didn't want to leave and hope to be back some day.
