Beautiful chateau in lovely surroundings
We booked this Chateau for a 2 week family holiday Aug17 (11 of us in total) all ages baby to grandparents.
The Chateau is stunning and the owners Phil & Lucy made sure we had everything we needed, Phil even purchased a large piece of plywood so we could use one of the tables for table tennis which was a hit throughout the whole holiday.
The pool and gardens were perfect and we had use of on site cycles, boules and badminton, tennis rackets, there were even inflatables for the kids to play with in the pool
Good local shops and supermarkets are a ten minute drive away - there are restaurants around the area but we enjoyed cooking our own food and eating outside the Chateau every evening.
Phil grows a lot of vegetables and tomatoes in the gardens which we were free to use daily, another great touch
Next to the Chateau is an old church which is over six hundred year old which is still in use and we got the chance to look inside - amazing building
Took day trips out and visited caves, a beach and a number of quaint French towns on market days which are a must for fresh produce.
Other days we walked around the local villagers and cycled down to a local lake and man made beach which is less than a mile away
Lucy's homemade cakes were amazing especially her scones which we all agreed were the best we have ever tasted.
This was our second holiday in France having been to Marseille last year which we loved but this holiday was even better, the location and the property were excellent
Thanks Phil & Lucy for allowing us to use your beautiful home, Phil keep up the good building work on your other property, it looks amazing

Thank you so much for your kind comments in our guest book and even more so for taking the trouble to post a review on line.
We loved having you all as visitors and neighbours, its nice to see the Chateau enjoyed by families, especially those who clearly enjoy being here too. Thank you very much for leaving everything so neat and tidy, a great help in a busy day. You were definitely all 5 star visitors and we would love to have you back again.
This is a fabulous place
This is a fabulous place. The old chateau is nicely renovated with high ceilings spacious rooms and a lot of charm. Two living rooms, a dining room and a kitchen in addition to five large bedrooms two with integrated bathrooms gives you enough space for family or friends. There are several outdoor places where it is nice to sit and a nice pool and pool area. I think it is nicer in reality than on the pictures. To swim in the pool by night with the tower of the chateau, the tower of the neighbor 12th century church and the stars above you is quite an out of this world experience.
You really get much more for the money here than along the coast. For the people in need of the beach the nearby (walking or bike) lake have a nice spacious constructed sand beach with different facilities, kayak rental for free and playing ground for kids. There are also many nice small villages around to explore. We had planned to tour around to different places but we ended by just being around the house and nearby areas since it was an attraction in itself.
The owner lives next door, is helpful and friendly but leave you alone if you don’t ask for help.
Thank you very much for your kind review. We loved having you all to stay with us, you were just the nicest and most helpful guests to have, it was a pleasure. Please come again!
Great family property with superb pool
We enjoy a lovely week with our family, great pool and family home. The chateau was in top condition, and a great location for a relaxing break. We would highly recommend, and love to visit again in the future.
So good we came back.....twice
We love Chateau Carsac. We haven't returned to holiday destinations before, though we've had some lovely holidays, but in this case we have been 3 times. The Chateau is beautifully renovated with everything you could need, (we are a family of 5 so the pool is an essential). It's close enough to a number of great places to visit, including a swimming lake with activities like canoeing and the excellent town of St Emilion. Phil and Lucy are superb hosts and they treat us like friends not customers. There's lots more that I could write, but that might spoil the experience of discovering it all! It's a very good example of 'you get what you pay for'.
A week of Bliss
We had a very relaxing and memorable week in Carsac. The Chateau is stunning and was well stocked with everything one would need to cater for a young family. The pool was a perfect size, was well maintained and had a safety alarm/gate system. Phil, the owner, is very helpful and sorts any requests out quickly. He hires bikes out at a very reasonable rate which is great as the surrounding area is beautiful and ideal to explore on a bike. St-Emilion is around 30 minutes drive away and is a lovely place to visit/eat out at. I would heartily recommend this rental for a young family.
Thanks for your kind comments Joe, we love to have families with young children to stay and try hard to make it a both a special holiday for parents and fun place for kids so its good to know it all worked out so well for you.
Il s'agit d'1 château écologique, rénové selon des techniques de construction traditionnelles (chaux pour les murs et chêne local recyclé pour les portes et fenêtres). Les murs épais en pierre permettent d'accumuler la chaleur naturelle avec 1 pompe à chaleur qui transfère la chaleur depuis le champ en face de la maison jusqu'à la maison de façon très efficace. Le même système est utilisé pour chauffer la piscine à la température confortable de 26°C (du printemps à l'automne) ou pour rafraîchir la maison en été. Seulement 4% de notre consommation en énergie est issue des énergies fossiles et pour vous aider à compenser le charbon utilisé pour arriver ici, nous allons planter 1 arbre (1 par visiteur). Inscrivez votre nom sur notre liste, nous espérons que vous allez revenir pour voir comment votre arbre grandit.
