Château Coulon Laurensac

We consider it a privilege to receive at our chateau all kinds of people from a variety of countries and with different backgrounds.
At first we were hesitant to put guest comments on our web site. We were afraid that people might think we added them to make us feel good about ourselves (actually it does, but that was not our aim...)
Here's a selection of comments from our guests about their stay at Chateau Coulon Laurensac.


Dear Ronald, Margaret, Roderick and Alexander,
Thank you so much for what has been a most relaxing and enjoyable week at Chateau Coulon Laurensac. The accommodations at the gîte are so comfortable that it is difficult for us to pack our bags. We really appreciated the attention to detail with your superb recommendations for places to visit and allowing us to borrow your books on the region…
Ava had a fantastic week and it was lovely to see that children are so welcome at the Chateau too. It was really a great bonus for us to be able to join Ronald’s Wine Tasting evening and gain some knowledge about the Bordeaux wines (and of course taste some wonderful wines too). We would not hesitate to recommend Chateau Coulon Laurensac to our friends and we hope to have an opportunity to return some day soon.

Dear Margaret and Ronald
Chateau Coulon Laurensac was the perfect place to call “home”, while we explored Bordeaux and the surrounding area! This week of memories has been a highlight of our long journey. We will remember them and you (and the boys).
Fondly, in the coming months, and each time we look at our journal and photos.

Best regards,
Connie and John Huet


Dear Ronald and Margaret
Just to say thank you for such an enjoyable time in Bordeaux. Your home is fabulous and we loved the charm of the cottage. The wine tour was great and the meal amazing.
Thank you very much for your kindness.

Best wishes,
Craig and Michele Timmis

Margaret and Ronald
What a wonderful time we had here, so perfect for our engagement. Your recommendations for places to visit and dine were most appreciated.
Today we have to leave, but we would love to return soon.

Many thanks,
Trisha and Martin


Dear Ronald and Margaret,
Thank you for a most relaxing and enjoyable stay at your Chateau. Brendan and I have felt very much at home and it has been a pleasure to meet you both. The garden has given us inspiration as it is so beautiful. We will leave refreshed and ready for the next phase of our trip. Thank you for showing your wine cellar Ronald and for your excellent restaurant suggestions Margaret.
Our time here will be long remembered as one of the highlights of our holiday in France.

Many thanks,
Janet and Brendan


Dear Margaret and Ronald,
It could be hard to find a holiday that satisfies the needs of food and wine loving parents and a 7 year old! Chateau Coulon Laurensac did just that- an enlightening and fun wine course, superb restaurant recommendations, warm hospitality, a cute family dog and lots and lots of space.

Barbara Daul and Alexander Breslin (from Ireland) loved to stay here – we will spread the word–

Thanks so much.


Dear Margaret and Ronald,
We have spent a wonderful week in your beautiful former cellar for the “barriques” and we have matured a bit. Ronald has opened the door to the fascinating world of wines and we have enjoyed every minute here.
Thanks, Margaret and Ronald for your warm hospitality.

A little bit of our hearts will stay here!

Dear Margaret and Ronald
Thank you for a fantastic time at your beautiful home. It was a wonderful base location for all of our explorations around the area. Your recommendations really made our break worthwhile, and so much help in choosing restaurants. We are sure this is the first of many trips to this region – if our stomachs ever recover from the amazing food and wine.

Thanks again,
Kieran and David, Manchester UK


Dearest Margaret and Ronald,
Ben and I would like to thank you for the wonderful time we had at your Chateau. Your hospitality was fantastic + we really loved your wine cellar. Ronald’s knowledge of wine educated us + helped us choose the wines that we bought in town. We wish you the best success with the Chateau. I look forward to spending more time in Bordeaux and in one of the gorgeous gîtes at Chateau Coulon Laurensac.

Merci beaucoup,
