Reviews

« Dear Jane, thank you very much for allowing our family of 6 experience your wonderful château. It is in a terrific spot, so very central to a host of different activities, sites, locations etc.. Could have stayed much longer! A week is such a short amount of time to see/do ll that this wonderful area has to offer! I guess we will just have to come back in the future to finish it all! So many thanks again »  Devlin Family - NJ, USA

« Dear Jane, there are so many wonderful comments in this book - and here on the last page is another! Our family has reconnected here at your fab home. It has become “our home away from home”. What a privilege to spend 3 weeks here! Yves (tennis coach) and Karen (French teacher) were fantastic .. surpassing all expectations! Katriona and J L were AMAZING … they made me feel so comfortable. Your support and organisation contributed immensely to our fantastic family stay. Thank you and best wishes »  Knight Family - Singapore

« Sightseeing, walking, jogging, hiking, tennis, swimming, wine tasting... this place has it all: including a wonderful château and grounds. We enjoyed it to the fullest and will have great memories. »  Richards Family - Canada

« Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful château. We enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you for making our trip to France so delightful »  Duggan - USA

« Comfortable, homely, cosy villa with everything one could need. Lovely pool and surrounding area. »  Willis family - UK

« We have been home for a few days and reflecting on our holiday. We can both say with confidence this France holiday has been the best holiday we have had. Great wine, family and fabulous food celebrated in your welcoming f confirmed we are very fortunate. It was a great opportunity to reconnect and relax. Your château was both child and adult friendly. The weather was perfect, the people were friendly and the château was so well equiped to support the many activites 4 children and 5 adults wanted to do. »  Mandl - USA

« 7 of our extended family travelled from Australia, UK and South Africa, and spent a wonderful 5 days at your château in April. We cannot compliment you enough on its location just west of Libourne. Beautifully appointed, 5 bedrooms all en suite and a large living area with modern kitchen made it ideal for 3 families. The views from every room were terrific and made the choice of a lazy day around the château versus short trips to nearby St Emilion, Pomerol and the Medoc a difficult one! The château de Fronsac, many within walking distance, were a delight in that they were so close and unexpected. We would like to return, perhaps next time in summer so that we can make use of the swimming pool. »  Hobbs - Australia, UK, South Africa

« Thank you Jane for the warmth and comfort of your home. It enabled us to relax and explore the area with ease - and what a wonderful area. The birthday bash in Bordeaux was a great success, as was our evening with Christophe who looked after us like royalty. Thank you for providing facilities such as pool, tennis court and bikes which were all much appreciated. A great holiday with friends old and new. »  Pattons, Duncans and Sheldens - Scotland, New Zealand

« It was a wonderful way to spend our ruby wedding anniversary at your château surrounded by our family. We have enjoyed all the local sights, have drunk copious amounts of wine, eaten loads of french breads and cheese. We have sunbathed around the pool and enjoyed the ambiance of the château. Thank you Jane for waiting for us when we got lost coming from the airport. A massive thank you to Christophe for making our anniversary dinner so delicious and Florence - we want to take you home! Thank you all... now back to the lashing rain of England! »  Bailey - UK

« Many thanks for a taste of château life. »  Mc Evoy and Johnstons - USA and Ireland

« Thanks for sharing your wonderful château with us. We all had a fantastic tie enjoying the château, grounds and surrounding area - best recommendation one can give is to say that we all hope to be back. »  Rimmer - Philiipines and UK

« Thank you for a wonderful week from the Norwegians. The château, the area and the weather were perfect. »  Torgersen - Norway

« Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful château. What a fantastic pool! We have all had such an amazing time and will be very sad to leave. »  Volks - UK

« Great home, wonderful location, brilliant week... thank you. »  Bertrand - UK

« Thank you for opening your amazing home. Bordeaux, Libourne and Saint-Émilion are lovely and we are so grateful to have spent our time vacationing in your sanctuary - a perfect place for our friends to meet. I assume our group was not among your standard guests - five couples! Most of us met while attending Cornell University and have a fraternity, sorority of a major study in common. Frederico and I dreamt of a time when all of us could be together in the same place again (it has been 5 years) and we are so happy to have found Château La Roque. Whether by plane, train or automobile (and some a combination of all!) we all arrived in Bordeaux for our 1 week stay. We split the days between playing tennis, tasting delicious wine, shopping and eating (thank you Christophe). We left Bordeaux feeling refreshed and rejuvenated and can't wait to return. To all future guests, we hope you enjoy this little slice of heaven as much as we did. It is truly something to be cherished. »  Castellucci and friends - Atlanta, LS, NY and St Louis, USA
