We found out about Chateau Julie through one of Alastair Sawday's excellent guides. We wanted a place to stay outside Bordeaux but where we could feel like we were in the Bordelais without the St. Emilion crowd.
Chateau Julie delighted us in every way. The proprietors are extremely welcoming and greeted us with a complimentary bottle of their own production (of which we later purchased several cartons...) Each room is decorated in the style of a country with which the owners do wine business; our room was called South Africa. Everything was spotless and we had use of a lovely sitting room and terrace overlooking the park and vineyards. The following morning breakfast was a real treat including much more than the usual French fare.
I look forward to returning one day to Chateau Julie and highly recommend it to others.
