Holiday home in France
When you see our holiday home (gîte) "Pomerol" you'll fall in love with it just like we did.
We didn't name this lovely self-catering holiday home after a famous wine region by accident. Château Coulon Laurensac used to be a wine-producing property. This beautiful 200 year old building used to be the château's cellar master's lodging. Now it has everything you need to enjoy a "grand-cru" holiday.
Pomerol (4 persons, 80 m2) [861 square feet]
This stylish intimate cottage is finished to a high standard with lots of home from home comforts. Pomerol has all the right ingredients for a perfect holiday. There are two sofas grouped around the former fireplace in the tastefully decorated living room with beautiful exposed beams and honey-colored limestone walls.
Furnishing and equipment
Pomerol has recently been renovated and redecorated to welcome you with all the modern comfort. In the living room there is a selection of English and French books. Complementary wifi Internet access and a TV (flatscreen, 32 inch) with DVD player are all at your disposal to make for a comfortable stay. If we are at home, you can come and borrow as many DVDs as you like. In addition to the French television there is a wide selection of satellite channels. Among them many British and American channels like BBC, Sky news, CNN, etc. A stereo set with iPod or iPhone docking station with CD player and radio complete the technical equipment of your accommodation.
Well situated, the house offers a high degree of privacy. Pomerol overlooks the park and has its own garden (almost half the size of a football field) and boasts a lovely seating area with garden furniture and a sunshade.
The kitchen area is spacious and has a modern, fitted and well-equipped kitchen/dining room (table, 4 chairs) with cooker, dishwasher, etc. As well as bowls and pans, there is a coffee machine, kettle, toaster, iron and a vacuum cleaner, in short, everything you need for a comfortable stay.
There is a central laundry room with a washing machine and a tumble-dryer you can use at no extra charge.
Bedding and bathroom
There are two spacious bedrooms upstairs. One has a double bed (Box-spring: 1.60x2.00 m) [5.5 feet by 6.6 feet], the other two (large) single beds [2.9 feet by 6.6 feet]. On the same floor there is a sizeable luxury bathroom with a jacuzzi bath, two washbasins and a WC (see picture).
When you arrive at the Château, the beds are already made. All beds are provided with duvets. Bed linen and towels are included. (Please bring your own beach or pool towels).
The gite is non-smoking, and sorry, no pets are allowed.
You can enjoy moments of leisure or take a dip in our large heated swimming pool (6 by 12m), [807 square feet]. The pool, which has two roman steps, is stunningly set at the south side of the château. The pool is heated from early May until the end of October.

Enjoy your holiday on the grounds of a beautiful and romantic 18th century château. Surprisingly situated just 5 km from the buzzing center of Bordeaux, one of France's largest cities, Château Coulon Laurensac awaits you on the banks of the Garonne River and offers four self-catering gîtes (cottages).
The self-catering holiday homes are situated in the former barrel hall next to the château. This building, in which the wine used to age in oak casks, has been completely renovated in order to welcome you with all the modern comfort. We kept the traditional style of the building such as beautiful exposed beams and honey-colored stone walls.
Château Coulon Laurensac is superbly located and set in a park of 5ha (12 acres) of enclosed and landscaped grounds with centuries old trees and rows of lovely rose bushes. The special atmosphere of our Château guarantees you a peaceful and relaxing holiday at just 5 minutes from down town Bordeaux.
Whether you prefer to relax by the pool, enjoy a daily boulangerie run for a baguette, take up sports, discover wine tasting or enjoy visiting Bordeaux and the area, you'll be ensured to experience an unforgettable holiday at Château Coulon Laurensac.

Restaurants, food & wine
The southwest of France is famous for its cuisine. You can enjoy fresh seafood and huitres on the local markets. Duck specialties like foie gras and confit de canard taste like they should here.
There is an excellent choice of restaurants within a 5 to 10-minute drive, ranging from a simple bistro to Michelin-starred restaurants. The owners are always pleased to recommend restaurants or make the reservations for you.
And then there is the wine. Whether you like red, white wine or rosé, grand cru wines or more affordable wines made by small producers: Bordeaux caters for all tastes and budgets.
The owners of Chateau Coulon Laurensac are knowledgeable wine lovers themselves and nothing would give them more pleasure then recommending a wine château or wine shop for you to visit, taste and maybe buy.
At Chateau Coulon Laurensac you can practice many types of sports.
You can swim a few laps in the pool. Our spacious lawns are perfect for a game of badminton or soccer. The gravel lane will challenge you to take up your jeux de boules.
A beautiful bicycle and walking trail (piste cyclable) starts in front of the château and runs for approximately 50 km from Bordeaux to Sauveterre. (Don't worry it's mostly flat...) This trail is asphalt so you can use it for skating as well.
There are tennis courts in the village of Latresne (2 miles). In the area around Chateau Coulon Laurensac you can practice horseback riding and play golf. There are three courses within a 20-minute drive from the château.

Beste Ronald, Margaret, Roderick en Alexander,
Ontzettend bedankt voor een fantastische tijd op jullie Chateau Coulon Laurensac. We hebben genoten van de rust, jullie gastvrijheid en het prachtige zwembad.
Joep en Céline hebben met heel veel plezier gespeeld met jullie charmante zonen. Het is heel wel mogelijk dat ik jullie volgend jaar weer zie in het kader van de Jones Lang LaSalle golf- (en wijn) trips. We gaan het zien.
Het allerbeste. Veel geluk, gezondheid en voorspoed toegewenst,
Eric, Susanne, Céline en Joep
Beste Margaret en Ronald
Hierbij willen wij jullie hartelijke bedanken voor het fantastische verblijf op jullie landgoed. De “Gite Pomerol”heeft onze verwachtingen overtroffen. We hebben genoten van de prachtige omgeving, Saint Emilion en natuurlijk Bordeaux. Jullie gastvrijheid hebben we erg gewaardeerd. Dat deze week omgevlogen is, zegt dan ook meer dan genoeg. We zullen het verblijf op Chateau Coulon Laurensac dan ook aan iedereen aanraden. Wanneer we volgend jaar terugkomen, dan zijn we benieuwd of Alexander en Roderick nieuwe goocheltrucs hebben geleerd. Onze kinderen hebben zeer genoten van het zwembad, de enorme ruimte en de magische ruïne.
Hartelijke groeten van
Paul, Ingrid, Jean-Paul en Marieke
