It doesn't get much better than this... stunning scenery, a safe peaceful environment for little ones to run around, lovely interiors and fabulous wine on tap! Chateau Grand Pierre is a stunning estate of over 100 acres of vineyard, woodland and fields set in the gastronomic heart of France. It not only produces delicious wines but is also a fabulous place to stay.
The elegant honey coloured stone chateau can sleep sfive in its pretty guest house and has lovely outdoor terraces for taking in the views, reading a book, or the simple pleasures of watching little ones enjoy the freedom of the estate with the toys, sandpit, swings and scooters provided. Playtime for older guests comes in the form of an all-weather tennis court and a beautiful 15 metre outdoor pool - great for mini guests too thanks to its huge shallow end and wide steps for sitting and splashing.
Enjoy a truly private wine tour, play golf at the award winning Chateau Vigiers nearby, take the kids for a wander on the neighbouring riding school's Shetland ponies, have a picnic in the vineyard, or simply relax with a glass of the Chateau's own delicious sauvignon blanc by the swimming pool... idyllic!
The Guest House at Grand Pierre sleeps five in two bedrooms (a twin/super king and a triple) split over two floors. There's a well designed bathroom with tub and shower, a spacious lounge, dine-in kitchen and a pretty dining terrace overlooking the vineyard. The owners of the vineyard, friendly ex-pat Brits Nick and Jackie Warner live in the adjoining main house.
Chateau Grand Pierre enjoys a beautiful and tranquil location on a hillside with fabulous views and is completely private.

The river Dodogne is just 10 minutes away, and the charming medieval town of St. Emilion is just over 30 minutes drive, its’ cobbled streets crammed with boutiques, bistros and gourmet shops. Horse and pony riding at the neighbouring riding school is easily arranged, as are rounds at the fabulous Chateau Vigiers golf course.
