We were lucky to be the last guests here at Marie-Christine and Willy's chateaux. They were excellent hosts and really made us feel at home. We had fresh bread every morning and Willy was great with showing us the chateaux and cellar - we learnt a lot about wine making! I know they have a new airBnB opening soon, so if you find yourself reading this Marie-Christine and Willy were excellent hosts and I hope we get to come back to Bordeaux one day to see their new place. Thank you so much for having us and making our stay a great one! Bonnie

We had a great week at Marie-Christine and Willy's apartment. The whole family are wonderful hosts and couldn't be more accommodating. Willy's 'secret recipe' bread was delicious and his tips for the local area were invaluable. The apartment was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. We wouldn't hesitate to stay with them again in the future.

This is an awesome place to stay, everywhere is very easy to get to and not so far. This is made especially easy by Willy who provides maps and excellent advise, recommendation, and direction. Marie-Christine is an excellent hostess and bread maker. The fridge is stocked with all the nesesities you will need for your first breakfast and more. It is sad they leave this place, but very exciting that they will be setting up a little further up the country in Dordogne!! We look forward to coming back and staying with you then.

Lovely stay in a fantastic location with incredibly friendly and helpful hosts. The local area is absolutely stunning and Marie-Christine and Willy were always at hand to help and recommend day trips. Loved the tour of the wine cellar. Thanks!

If it’s the view and serenity that you are looking for during your vacation, then this IS the place to stay. Located on top of the vineyard valley, away from the city lights and noises, yet only 5km away to town centre, you can enjoy both peaceful stay and convenient access. Short distance to many small yet charming medieval towns nearby, and a 40min driving will bring you right back to the baz city life of Bordeaux. The house is very spacious, traditional style with everything you need for cooking, dining. Very friendly host couple, fluent in English which is rare in this region. This gives extra pleasure on chatting with them on histories and knowledge of wine etc.

Extremely warm welcome received upon arrival. Homemade bread and jam supplied plus extra items already in the fridge. Lovely location and so quiet in amongst the vines. Plenty to see and do nearby without having to spend a long time driving.

Me and my wife had a stay at the Chateau one week for our honeymoon. The area is really beautiful, with the surrounding Vineyards and small cozy villages all around. We had a great time sitting in the large terasse we had for ourselves, with a choir of cicades after dark. The nearby village Verdelais is especially recommendable for a visit, and the local bakery in Le Pian less than 5 minutes away by bike had amazing baguettes, and served some of the best croissant we've tasted. Marie-Christine and Willy really made a stretch to make our stay as pleasant as possible. They gathered us at the station in Langon, and one night when we messed up and missed the last train from Bordeaux, and was about to rent a motel, they drove all the way from Le Pian to drive us home. They are really nice, very outgoing, but also respectful to our privacy. When we wanted to be alone, they let us, and they were always around when we needed them. Willy told us a lot about the area, the history of places, and gave us good tips on where to go and what to see. It is evident that they love what they do, both the wine-making and the hospitality. Totally recommendable.

Marie-Christine And Willy User ProfileMarie-Christine And Willy is a superhost.

We are a french-danish couple. We've lived in Denmark, the United States and now France. We bought Château La Corne 20 years ago. Willy had to learn everything about wine making, a real challenge. I take care of the house and the renting of the apartment. Through wine selling and renting we have the opportunity to meet many different people and we love it.
We now have bought another amazing place near Saint Emilion and will also be so happy to help our guests to discover this new area.
