The Experience

Chateau de Mirambeau

In the heart of France, halfway between Paris and Biarritz, in a dreamlike world close to the noble towns of Bordeaux and Cognac, lies the prestigious Chateau de Mirambeau.

This gem of late Romanesque architecture, once a residence of the French aristocracy, is a splendid exclusive 5 star hotel set in the heart of an eight-hectare parkland, with towers dominating the whole surrounding countryside.  Its galleries, spires, chapel and stone porticoes are an invitation to go back to 11th through 16th century history.

The Chateau de Mirambeau offers its guests a choice of 22 luxury rooms including 9 junior suites, each decorated differently in 19th century bourgeois style.  All the rooms are spacious and decorated with refined antique furnishings and canopies over the beds and have beautiful marble bathrooms.  They are provided with every modern comfort.

The Chateau also features a gourmet restaurant serving all the flavours and aromas of seasonal cuisine, a “cognatheque” for brandy tastings and a magnificent fireplace decorated with the Chateau’s coat of arms. The hotel also has three conference rooms and a Wellness centre with an indoor pool, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi.  

The Chateau is set in stunning grounds where guests can make full use of two tennis courts and a second swimming pool.

Like a Renaissance vision from the vineyards of this romantic region, the storybook Château de Mirambeau, Member of Relais & Châteaux, is truly enchanting. The spindly spires of this historic manse were constructed as far back as the 11th century; newer sections were added in the 19th century, and a complete modernization was completed in 2002. While you’ll surely be tempted by the picturesque vineyards of Cognac and Bordeaux, spend time enjoying your opulent bedroom, the spa, the two tennis courts, the complimentary wine tastings and the decadent cuisine. Visit the “cognatheque” to mingle and enjoy a drink next to the roaring fire.
