Chateau Valandraud

Recently renovated with a touch of  zen, your Dordogne villa, belonging to one of St. Emilion’s master wine makers, is a new local treasure. One half of the villa is dedicated to guests, with roomy living space and comfortable, modern bedrooms, and the other half houses the owner’s wine fermenting tanks, cellar, and of course, the many secrets that go into making a premier Dordogne cru.

The main floor of the guest area is comprised of a gorgeous living room, dining room and professional kitchen, all ideal for entertaining. The French doors in the living room open to sweeping views of the rolling hills and vineyards—the perfect vista to enjoy a glass of our favorite local vintage.

Our Favorite Things About this Villa

  • The spacious living room with glass double-doors that open out to a teak deck overlooking the rolling Dordogne vineyards
  • The working winery attached to the main house
  • The large dining room that comfortably seats 12 or more—the perfect spot to enjoy a meal and exchange stories of the days’ adventures
