It was a wonderful stay

  • Submitted: Jul 9, 2013

Hi Michele and Frans,
I just wanted to thank you both for making our stay at your chateau a memorable and delightful one. It was a perfect way to spend my birthday week and I especially appreciate your fine cooking for my birthday dinner. My friends from near and far haven't stopped talking about how much they enjoyed themselves and how much fun they all had. Your hospitality certainly made a big contribution to that. I hope the last couple of weeks have gone well and that the summer and fall will continue to be profitable and enjoyable for you, too. I went back to work this past Monday, so the busyness of the beginning of the school year sometimes tends to obscure my happy summer memories. But I keep them alive by telling my colleagues what a great time I had. Perhaps our paths will cross again. It would be a delight. Thanks again.

We just wanted to thank you for the most relaxing holiday we have ever had. The house and setting were stunning and we would have no hesitation in recommending Shambhala to all our friends. We really hope to be able to stay again in the future. Thanks for the wine it was a very kind thought.

Bordeaux and Bergerac

The welcoming climate and stunning scenery of the Dordogne encourage exploration and the region has many treasures to delight wine connoisseurs, gourmets, artists and activity enthusiasts alike.

The chic bustle of St Emilion only twenty minutes from Shambhala offers stylish boutiques, contemporary fine art and world class restaurants. Also nearby are Saint Seurin de Prats and Pessac. Following the Dordogne and Lot waterways will reward the explorer with many new delights, as charming villages and market towns such as Bergerac, Souillac and Cahors were established through trade along their banks.

Bordeaux is an elegant city filled with architectural delights. The visitor can enjoy the narrow streets of the old town, stunning 18th Century mansion houses, the neoclassical theatre and wide boulevards lined with boutique shops in this diverse and attractive city.

Along the Dordogne are many fine chateaux such as Beynac and Monpazier, mainly built for military action against England during the 100 Years??? War. Each summer only ten minutes from Shambhala a dramatic battle re-enactment is held at Castillon de Bataille. The home of the philosopher Michel Montaigne is only 10 minutes away, and there are fine Gallo-Roman mosaics to be seen in the neighbouring village of Montcaret.

The traditional French hamlet location is a peaceful centre from which to explore the region, with excellent amenities close by.

The local villages of Pessac has a small supermarket, boulangerie, tabacconist, hair salon and two restaurants. Castillon and Sante Foy both have large supermarkets and there are several markets throughout the week in the surrounding towns which specialise in local produce.

The nearby Chateau Bauduc, favoured by Gordon Ramsay and Rick Stein, is a must for wine connoisseurs and offers a programme of tours and tastings, with private visits by arrangement. Wine tours of the many local vineyards are a wonderful chance to sample world-renowned names. Chateau Monbazillac is at Bergerac and St Emilion, Cahors and others are all nearby, offering a chance to sample outstanding wines on the soil where the grapes are grown.

To accompany the wines are many famous traditional cheeses, truffles, mushrooms, duck and goose delicacies such as foie gras. The wealth of gourmet produce makes this area a paradise for foodies, who will be delighted by the local markets of Castillon, Sante Foy and Libourne. This passion for fine produce is reflected in the many excellent restaurants throughout the region.

Along with boating, swimming and fishing at Shambhala, there is a fantastic kayaking centre in the local village of Pessac. The surrounding countryside is perfect for walking and cycling with views to delight and inspire artists and writers.
