Dear Jane, just a short note to say that we had a lovely time at your property. We were all impressed as to how well it was equipped and it was a pleasure to be in a house which had everything that we could have wanted. We had temperatures of 34 to 37 C so the pool was a godsend ( and so was the ice maker in the fridge/freezer!) I liked the the restaurant opposite the gates to the property (Chez Carles). Madame who runs it can be a bit frosty (at first )but she seems to have the same attitude with the locals, apart from the Gendarmes who eat their every day! The food is hearty and good value L'Escapade up the road was very good and extremely good value as well. Thanks once again.

We are six Australians and have recently spent a week at Chateau Emirol on 20th May 2017. We were thrilled to find the Chateau was everything and more than we could imagine and very true to what was advertised by Oliver's Travels which is always a good thing especially when we travelled so far. The grounds were fabulous and we really enjoyed the pool each afternoon after a long day sightseeing. The Chateau was very comfortable , nicely decorated and very well stocked. Out night with Mathieu was exceptional, an experience we won't forget . The location was great very peaceful but close enough to Libourne for supplies. Thank you Jane for a great stay Elizabeth & Michael , Pam & Ross, Philip & Michele (20/05/2017)
Hi Jane, a rather belated note to say how much we enjoyed our holiday in Bordeaux staying at your Chateau. It was very spacious, well appointed and very well equipped (especially the kitchen) and the pool and surrounding area were superb. We loved eating outside on the terrace and the garden was great for exploring - tomatoes, plums... delicious. Giles made the best plum frangipani tart for us! Finley went to great effort to write the thank you letter from us all and in his words it says how we all felt. Many thanks for the lovely wine which we all supped and enjoyed - Christian was absolutely charming and made us very welcome when we paid him a visit to buy some wine. David E. (15/09/2016)

Dear Jane, thank you for the opportunity to spend a marvellous week in your wonderful home .. Chateau Emirol. We have enjoyed magnificent wines, great meals .. and the comfort of the Chateau. We have played and laughed through a memorable vacation. Thanks for everything. Ashford/Daley Family (NY, Sydney and Melbourne) (21/07/2016)
This message is dedicated to B and B Buick, Angus Scotland for their 50 years in marriage celebration who brought together loving family from Western Australia and Scotland. One day we hope to be together in another wonderful setting such as Chateau Emirol … this had and will always be a holiday of a life time to remember. Au revoir and thank you. The Buick Family (Scotland and Australia) (05/07/2016)
Dear Jane, It has been such a pleasure staying in your beautiful home, We love the whole area, the wineries, the food, the whole experience and we will definitely be back. It has been an absolute pleasure to stay here. To be honest my husband and I don't normally stay in villas, it is always hotels. But your home made us feel so at ease. We cooked and stayed in 2 evenings and it was really lovely to have the children lounge around and be relaxed. We have always worried what sort of facilities we would find. But your house is so well equipped with a great kitchen and good bathrooms. And your taste in decor made it a pleasant stay … very homely and very special. Thank you. The Tzelepis Family, Australia, June 2016 (20/06/2016)
We had a splendid family gathering. We have played lots of games and read lots of books. The weather has been a little cruel to us which did not hamper our ability to enjoy your lovely swimming pool and tennis court. We have had some excellent visits (St Emilion, Chateau de la Riviere, Bordeaux) and some great meals out (Libourne, Montagne, Chez Carles) .. so many thanks for all the tips. Thank you for an excellent holiday. The Wright Family, Australia (14/06/2016)
We really did have a super time at the house. It was totally perfect for all our needs and by far the best equipped house we have rented. The house was totally perfect for our children as the garden is so safe - they really enjoyed the freedom we could allow them. All is all we plan and hope to return soon. Victoria D. (22/08/2015)
What a wonderful holiday. The perfect antidote to our busy lives. The combination of an elegant charming home, tennis court and fabulous pool was ideal. Oliver B. (01/08/2015)
It was perfect for our family of eight. We used the tennis court daily and spent many lovely afternoons around the pool. The outdoor seating was a favourite and we ate most of our meals there. The kitchen was fabulous and well equipped. We all felt very comfortable. The house was very elegant yet comfortable. It was a fabulous house for all of us. It really was exactly what we needed and were thrilled with how it all worked out Tamara (03/10/2014)
Dear Jane, thank you fo very much for allowing our family of 6 experience your wonderful Chateau. 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 (22/09/2014)
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 (22/09/2014)
Sightseeing, walking, jogging, hiking, tennis, swimming, wine tasting …. this place has it all: including a wonderful Chateau and grounds. We enjoyed it to the fullest and will have great memories. Richards Family, Canada (22/09/2014)
Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful Chateau. We enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you for making our trip to France so delightful. Duggan, USA (22/09/2014)
! I couldn't be more pleased with the way things have worked out. The Chateau is so beautiful, elegant yet very comfortable. We are all enjoying ourselves, using tennis courts almost daily and the kids love the pool. The weather has been perfect for touring around and we visit somewhere almost daily. Today we are going to the coast for a little beach . We did the sand dunes last week, visited St Emilion, Bordeaux , a couple of chateaux, an abbey and yesterday we went to Bourg for Fete National. Good fun. It really is a spectacular area and we have loved every minute. Cheryl Richards (21/07/2014)
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 Chateau confirmed we are very fortunate. It was a great opportunity to reconnect and relax. Your chateau was both child and adult friendly. The weather was perfect, the people were friendly and the chateau was so well equipped to support the many activities 4 children and 5 adults wanted to do. We would care for your Chateau as if it was our own. Mandl (US) (19/02/2014)
Carl and I and are 4 children, and friends, want to thank you very much for sharing your beautiful home with us for these two weeks. It is a wonderful space from which to experience Bordeaux. We enjoyed the grounds - including the fruit and vegetables that we picked each day - and the pool, and the many thoughtful touches that made our stay here so very special. Zwisler (US) (19/02/2014)

So much to see and do in this wonderful region, yet all we really wanted to do was to stay at home and enjoy everything it had to offer. An absolutely divine holiday with our family together again. Thank you very much from the Birt family. Birt (Australia) (19/02/2014)
The Mildenhall reunion went very well, much laughter and reminiscing from parents and sons. Great venue - could not have been better! despite some wet days a few managed a tan by the end of 2 weeks. Thank you. Mildenhall (Australia) (19/02/2014)
It was a pleasure to stay in such a wonderful home. When we return as a group, we will definitely stay there again. We are all creatures of habit, and having found such a comfortable spot, I can see no other option we would consider. I was very happy with our choice to stay with you. Rusciano (US) (19/02/2014)

Chateau la Roque is a very comfortable house to stay in. The bedrooms and bathrooms are of a high standard and the kitchen is very well kitted out. The gardens are lovely, marred a little by noise from a busy road at the bottom of the hill, but we enjoyed using the tennis court and pool - once we had got used to the temperature of the water and played many games of boules. The huge outside table is perfectly placed by a large tree which gives shade at the right times of day and made meals outside very enjoyable. Rosey G (03/09/2013)

Dear Jane Just wanted to say thankyou for hiring your chateau to us, we had a most wonderful family holiday and it was really special to all be together in the chateau to celebrate my parent's ruby wedding. Your chateau is gorgeous, it's just a shame we only booked for a week, could easily have stayed much longer! Thankyou too for your recommendation of Christophe and Florence. We really enjoyed both our dinners from Christophe, in particular the ruby wedding meal which made the anniversary more special. Florence was also a great source of information during our stay and was incredibly helpful. We had a fantastic time and would not hesitate in recommending a stay in Chateau La Roque to friends and family Thanks again Best wishes Jennyxx Anonymous User (02/07/2012)

This was a wonderful stay for the whole of our family (3 generations). The chateaux and the grounds are extremely pleasant. The holiday spirit is there as soon as you come in. Thank you so much and we hope to be back. L C - (13/08/2010)
Dear Jane, your home is absolutely beautiful and the setting just idylic. We very much appreciated your attention to detail, I hope the orchids survived as we did not realize they were real until the blooms started dropping off! We could have easily spent more time in the area, there is so much to see and do. We did manage a visit to both St Emilion and Bordeaux. Thank you again for such a wonderful week. Brannan & Morgan Families (13/08/2010)

Dear Jane, the Chateau is very pretty and the pool is fantastic. I really enjoyed playing in the tennis court even though I am not very good at it.

Just fantastic!! we will be back for sure, with firends and for longer. Thanks for warmest days this rainy week! Your place is the only place to stay in the area! Come to Moscow one day! Audrey & Natasha (30/07/2010)
Hi Jane, Bordeaux is indeed beutiful. The chateau was a beautiful and relaxing experience and we all enjoyed it thoroughly. You have a lovely home in a fantastic location. having not been in France for years the trip has rekindled my interest - this may have been the first of many future visits! Jonathan R (30/07/2010)
Hi Jane, Thanks for a lovely week in your Chateau, we really did have a wonderful week and were sad to leave. The house is so well equipped that we really did not miss anything from home. The kids loved jumping in and out of the pool and relaxing around the garden. Christophe is a brilliant find, he cooked us all two lovely meals, if we could have booked him for the full week we would have done so, maybe next time! Neil R (29/07/2010)
Dear Jane, we have all had a thoroughly enjoyable 2 weeks at your adorable chateau. Sadly we must leave this oasis tomorrow. When B asked me where I wanted to go this summer to celebrate (?) my 50th birthday, I decided on Bordeaux .. an area I have never visited except by proxy wine menus. She searched for a great place and we have all been exceptionally pleased with the result. We have enjoyed time out and about in Bordeaux, St Emilion and Libourne. We have enjoyed wine tasting and particularly at Chateau Mazaris. The car will be a lot heavier on the way back and we have a wine delivery soon after we get home. We will have many bottles to drink over the next few years to remind us of our lovely time here. The tennis and pool were so enjoyable. We love the chateau inside. It is very well equipped. Access to BBC sport, for me in particular during the Olympics was a big plus. Your restaurant recommendations were excellent. We would really love to come back one day.
Family King (London)
My Mother, Father, brother and I were so looking forward to staying at your home after seeing the beautiful photos .. it did not disappoint!! As well as being a gorgeous home with lovely grounds, every detail was thought out on the inside. Your well appointed kitchen allowed us to cook many meals from the produce we bought at Libourne markets and then enjoy on the terrace in the sun. We will miss our morning walks to the local boulangerie and afternoons by the pool after wine tasting all day. Lizzie F.
