Description

Chateau Lague provides the perfect setting not only for winelovers, but for those who want to make the most of the beautiful countryside and famous towns and villages of the Bordeaux region. The property offers all mod cons whilst retaining the charm and elegance associated with an 18th century chateau. Sitting on the terrace one has views of the Dordogne and Isle rivers, the thriving market town of Libourne and across to the hill of St Emilion.

From its elevated position, Chateau Lague overlooks the village of Fronsac, itself offering numerous opportunities for winetasting. The Chateau owners delight in introducing their guests to the merlot-dominated wines of the area with a tour of their own cellar, and many of the other Fronsac chateaux offer the opportunity to visit and buy direct.

Although set amidst vineyards, the Chateau is conveniently situated for local amenities. Fronsac has a local store, wine shops, a baker and a pharmacy as well as a small restaurant.

Location description from owner

The Aquitaine region

Chateau Lague lies at the heart of the famous wine region of Pomerol-Saint-Emilion-Fronsac. The World Heritage site of Saint Emilion is 5 km away. Here you can take a short winetasting course, visit the local chateaux and sample some of the world's most famous wines within a beautiful medieval setting. The historic city of Bordeaux is 30 km away. Known as 'little Paris', it was recently awarded the status of a World Heritage site. The city has been carefully restored to its former glory and now offers a tram service that allows you to visit the museums, the wonderful Jardin Public, the varied shopping boutiques, the newly refurbished waterfront and quays - and, of course, to try some of the famous local delicacies at one of the many restaurants.

The mild and sunny climate of the region owes much to its proximity to the Atlantic. Just over an hour away, a trip to the coast is well worth the visit. Here you can join the surfers seeking the perfect wave, try some of the local oysters and relax on the expansive beaches. If you feel more energetic, you can climb to the top of the biggest sand dune in Europe, or cycle through the pine forest to one of the huge lakes where you can kayak, sail or swim.

If you are visiting for a week or more, you may want to wander further afield with a trip into the Dordogne to Sarlat, or take a trip down the coast to Biarritz or the Basque town of San Sebastian, famed for its tapas bars.

If you still have some energy left when you return to Chateau Lague, there are plenty of walks through the vineyards, horseriding, tennis in the village and golf courses within a 20 minute drive. As the day draws to a close, sit and relax in the large living and dining room and enjoy a traditional meal with ingredients found at one of the local markets and enjoy the peace and quiet of the vineyard at night.

Libourne

The bastide town of Libourne is the wine-making capital of the northern Gironde. Set on the banks of the Dordogne and Isle rivers, it is a bustling market town, with three market days each week, and in the summer a weekly night market with food and entertainment. The town hosts an annual arts festival each summer, and Libourne and the surrounding towns and villages have many local festivals and events from April through to September, including horse ball matches at St Terre, the festival of the fishermen in Fronsac, and many food and wine festivals. The local chateaux hold food, wine, music and firework events throughout the summer season, and Libourne, St Emilion and Bordeaux host major events for the annual celebration to mark the start of the wine harvest in September. Information on the numerous events, festivals, antique fairs and wine 'open door' weekends can be found at the Chateau or at the local visitor information centres.
