“This enchanting villa in the Bordeaux region is the perfect property in which to enjoy a luxurious family holiday or break with friends. Displaying refined elegance, it blends French grandeur with Asian touches and makes guests feel like royalty. Top marks go to the indoor pool and spa area, sumptuous sofas and the roaring fireplace. However, the standout feature is the wine cellar which will keep wine connoisseurs more than happy.”
Located in northern Medoc, well within Bordeaux’s winegrowing territory, La Chartreuse de Cos d’Estournel sits at the heart of a 200-acre vineyard with a rich history. The private residence of La Réserve Hotels owner Michel Reybier, the Chartreuse has been spared no expense.
The villa features six rooms and two suites which comfortably sleep 16 and are available for exclusive use throughout the year. Designed by Jacques Garcia, interiors are typically sumptuous with embroidered silks and velvet upholstery fitting the surrounding grandeur. Pagodas and ornate partitions from palatial Rajasthan add an oriental feel.
Seasonal produce is at the heart of La Chartreuse’s resident chef’s culinary feats. Enjoy a market-brought lunch dining al fresco followed by a gourmet dinner featuring wine pairings.
A destination for oenophiles, La Chartreuse offers in-depth tasting tours of the estate. Tailored outings to regional gems are a given so guests can delight in all that Bordeaux has to offer.
