This charming chateau is in the heart of the Medoc vineyards, and is an absolute treasure. The welcome we received was warm and friendly. The room was in the annexe but was very well appointed, and spotlessly clean. Situated within the chateau's own vineyard wine tasting is available to all guests, but with such esteemed chateau such as Margaux, Lafite and Mouton Rothschild, etc close by the options for wine tasting are vast. The complimentary continental breakfast buffet is served in the chateau, which also has a large reading room with books and magazines in various languages. The hotel does not have a restaurant, so be prepared to travel for an evening meal (we saw one couple sitting on the terrace with a baguette, salad, cheese and charcuterie, and a bottle so I assume that the hotel will provide plates and cutlery if asked).
We only stayed for one night but at the price of the rooms this would make an ideal base to explore the Medoc, Atlantic coast, and Bordeaux.
In summary - perfect, and we will return. We will definitely recommmend this hotel considering a trip to the Medoc.

Room Tip: From what we saw any room is good, but unless you are staying in the suite ask for one of upstairs r...

We found this "little gem" while doing research for a place in the Bordeaux area for a short five-day vacation. It is located within a two- hour drive, at the most, to all Bordeaux appelations. We can only give positive reviews about the staff (Carol, Pierre Alexandrer, Celia, and Isabel) whose sugrgestions for wine tasting and restaurants proved most instructive and delicious. While no meals, except breakfast, are served, if you shop at boulangeries, charcuteries, boucheries, patisseries, etc., the staff will provide you with the necessary table setting to enjoy your "picnic" at the patio with their very reasonable, chateaux- produced wine selections. This year, they started experimenting with claret, an old British favorite, and we
enjoyed some every day. Our room, in the newer addition, had a "cathedral ceiling"with a fan
(just in case), a comfortable king-sized bed (two singles together), fluffy pillows, toiletries, and a heated towel warmer (convenient for drying other small items).

that was the most relaxing trip we ever had:-) breakfast was included (they baked their own croissant and they should ve limit it like 2 per person bc i had 4 one day:-( thats the only complaint i have! Hotel staff arranged some wine tours for us:-) b/c most places you need rsvp for tastings.. very helpful! good recommendations on local restaurants!
Rooms are very clean, updated bathrooms, plasma tv.
Amenities included sauna, pool, tennis court (we even played once).
Their own wine (organic) is excellent and reasonably priced - we also had their tour with Pier i think his name was.

Room Tip: stay in the main chateau (only 3 rooms there i think)

My husband and I stayed at Chateau Meyre for one night during our honeymoon. Only 30-40min from Bordeaux and very easy to find. We booked last minute (2 nights before) so managed to get a discounted room (as there was only one room left). We stayed in a room in the extension next to the chateau itself. The room was a lovely size and beautifully decorated although it is getting a little bit tired now. The bathroom, however, looked newly decorated and was absolutely lovely. Biggest downside, but you get this a lot in france, was that the double bed was just 2 singles pushed together, although as we told the chateau it was our honeymoon they had decorated the room with fresh flowers and petals on the bed so we really couldn't complain!

The complimentary wine tour with Pierre-Alexandre (a local university studen from Bordeaux) was great. We learnt a lot and enjoyed trying the chateau's wine. We also enjoyed an afternoon by the pool.

The chateau does not have a restaurant, but does serve a nice complimentary continental breakfast (a help yourself job), and recommends a number of restaurants, a short drive away. We visited Le Savoie in Margaux (i think that was the name) - completely over indulged ourselves in wonderful French food (boeuf, truffe and foie gras) and wine. Highly recommended - but slightly pricey.

We would definitely stay here again, although would try to book in advance to get one of the rooms in the chateau itself.

A friend and I planned our trip to Bordeaux this past October. Although I heard the city of Bordeaux is supposed to be great, none of the hotels were quite right. Luckily, we stumbled upon Le Clos de Meyre in Avensan. The staff was very friendly. Our room was newly remodeled and very clean. We even had a view of their vineyards. We only stayed two nights and I wish we had planned more time there. Although Avensan is a small town it is very easy to get around the Medoc and the rest of Bordeaux. I would definitely consider staying at Chateau Meyre again.

We recently stayed at Chateau Meyre for three nights. On arrivall we were warmly welcomed, shown our room and provided with lots of information on the chateau's facilities, breakfast arrangements and local places of interest, restaurants and vineyards. We were aware before booking that the only meal served was breakfast (a continental/cold buffet), that no staff were on duty after 8 pm, that having a car is virtually a necessity and that any restaurant we might want to go to for dinner could be up to half an hour's drive away. In the event none of this spoiled our stay in any way.
The chateau itself is an imposing building set in attractive gated gardens. Our ground floor room was spacious, well appointed and nicely furnished - with a small separate sitting room, ideal for relaxing in after a "hard" day's touring the area! The swimming pool was an added bonus.The buffet breakfast we found more than adequate and a member of staff was always around to help. Throughout our short stay we found all the staff whom we came in contact with professional and most helpful - going out of their way to give us the information we wanted.
Compared to the other hotels we stayed in during our three week tour of France, Chateau Meyre offered good value for money. We would be most happy to return and to recommend it to friends looking for a comfortable and relaxing base from which to explore the area.

The suite we had was in the block next to the Chateau and was spacious, comfortable and clean. However, we had opted for a king sized bed and this consisted of two single beds just pushed side by side with a large sheets across both beds. The absence of any member of staff in the evening meant you could not order a drink and using the hob in the kitchenette was not permitted. There was no restaurant within walking distance of the chateau and quite a few of the restaurants recommended by the chateau were up to 25 km away which we found a real negative. On the plus side, the tables and chairs outside allowed you to have a cold picnic style meal in the evening if not wanting to dine out. We found the swimming pool excellent being of a good size and of a uniform depth of about 1½ metres.
The staff were all pleasant but having to knock on the door marked “Privee” if you wanted anything at breakfast (you were never asked if you would like anything) and being made to feel as though you were being awkward when indicating that you did not feel able to visit 8 vineyard in the time available did not leave us feeling comfortable. If you do intend to visit a number of vineyards do obtain accurate directions to their locations as we found the directions provided by the chateau were confusing; in one case a vineyard was stated as being ‘just’ behind another chateau but it was actually over a mile away and not signposted.
Overall it was a good location for exploring the Medoc but not one we are likely to return to.
