Chateau Tournefeuille is an elegant manor set amongst the vines of the estate winery owned by delightful hosts, Virginie and Emeric. Breathtakingly beautiful inside and out. Large, comfortable, and beautifully decorated rooms each have a private bathroom. Guests share the ground floor living room, kitchen and outdoor seating areas that include chairs and tables that call to guests to sit down, relax and enjoy the views of the vineyard and, in our case, a spectacular sunset, while enjoying some food and wine. We only spent two nights here, but wish we had planned for a more extended stay.
Virginie, helped to orient us to the area and offered suggestions for good restaurants and particularly attractive spots to explore. We dined at a nearby restaurant one night and used the BBQ and kitchen to prepare our evening meal the second night, sharing the company of an engaging couple who are quite regular visitors.
We had an opportunity to spend time with Emeric, learning about and tasting his delicious wines. Even if we can’t visit often, we will certainly be regular wine purchasers. We also had the opportunity to visit and taste at three other area wineries – all planned in advance, as it does not appear that there are many public tasting rooms prepared to accommodate drop in visitors.
