Why We Love This Hotel

  • Fairytale castle surrounded by vineyards
  • 10 minutes’ drive from St Emilion & an hour from Bordeaux
  • The gourmet restaurant has a Michelin-recommended wine list
  • There’s a sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi & outdoor pool


Chateau Grand Barrail is a 19th-century castle set in seven acres of grounds in the Aquitaine countryside. The chateau is ringed by vineyards, offering far-reaching views, and there are bikes available to hire (extra charge applies) if you fancy exploring the neighbouring villages.

The hotel is a 10-minute drive from St Emilion, a UNESCO site and "the prettiest of the wine towns", according to Rough Guides. It’s also one of the most popular so visit in morning, before the coach tours arrive. Bordeaux, where you can "stroll the most graceful streets in France" (The Daily Telegraph), is an hour away by car.

The restaurant serves gourmet French cuisine and has "a particularly interesting wine list", says The Michelin Guide. A less elaborate lunchtime set menu is also available from Monday-Saturday. Guests can dine out on the terrace (summer only) or in the stained-glass conservatory, where the décor is said to have been inspired by The Petit Trianon Palace, Marie Antoinette's hideaway in the grounds of the Palace of Versailles. In the adjoining wing, there is a spa with a steam room, sauna and an indoor Jacuzzi with vineyard views. Grape-based spa treatments are available and outside you’ll find a pool (heated in high season).

Most of the rooms are in the more modern, villa-style wing near the pool and views are of the vineyards or parkland. All rooms have free Wi-Fi and Deluxe Rooms and above are supplied with Nespresso machines. Opt for an Executive Room to stay in the historic chateau.
