“Wonderful place to hang your hat!”
Chateau Fombrauge was a wonderful place to stay. From the moment that we walked in the door we were treated like royalty. Chantele was wonderful in taking care of us, even though there was a bit of a language barrier. We were able to get a tour of the winery and taste some wine at the end, even buying some wine to drink at the chateau that night. 
Breakfast in the morning was plentiful and tasty. We were fortunate enough to have no other guest when we were there and it was nice to feel like we own the chateau if only for a few nights. The rooms are very spacious and the bathrooms modern. The robes and slippers that were available for us to use were perfect to slip into after a day of wine tasting. 
The place is a little off the beaten path but was perfect for us as we had a car. It was about a five minute drive to the city but was close to all the other wineries we visited. It was nice to feel like we were truly getting away from it all. With the vineyard in the background and no other houses or chateau to be seen, we felt exactly like that. 
It was definitely worth the visit and one of the highlights of our trip.

“Fabulous Grounds”
Rich French food, wine okay, if one is into reds, great service and the most amazing grounds with century old gardens, with ancient olive trees. Just taking the time to wander the gardens is highly recommended and do the tour of the cellars at the Chateau with English speaking guide who explains the interesting history of the Chateau and its owners + the wine storage equipment was the most modern that I saw.

“Old World Luxury”
My wife and I spent 3 nights here and loved every single minute.  We stayed in the Cadran Suite with a lovely view of the vineyard. The room is beautifully appointed and takes you back centuries to old world French luxury.  Breakfast every morning was a sumptuous selection of yoghurt, granola, pastries, juices and coffee, served in a beautiful dining room.  The staff are incredibly helpful and accommodating. What struck us is how quiet the place is. It's a real escape. The Chateau is a short 5-10 minute drive to spectacular Saint-Emilion and a 45-minute drive to Bordeaux. If you're looking for a luxurious base in the Bordeaux region, this is it !

“A French version of Downton Abbey !”
It's funny how Chateau Pape Clement is classed here as a B&B. The beauty and luxury of this place far surpasses so many top hotels. From the warm greeting that David offered us before showing us around the ground floor of the property and the grounds to the luxurious bedroom, the rich history and beautiful gardens, the incredible artwork and fascinating wine tour.
hateau Pape Clement is an experience that everybody should try.
We dined here on one of our evenings in the beautiful dining room and were treated to excellent food served on Hermes crockery with superb wine from the vineyard outside the window. A special treat was finishing off dinner with a lovely Sauterne served in the most exquisite hand crafted glasses. Service at dinner and at breakfast was second to none and throughout our stay David made sure we had everything we needed including advise on where to dine in Bordeaux, calling taxis, etc, etc.
Thoroughly enjoyable stay - I think the nearest we will ever come to starring in a French version of Downton Abbey !

“Amazing piece of history”
Stayed here two nights and were amazed at the grounds, building, wine tour. So much historical information. From the study with all of the papal items, to the grounds with the olive tree planted in year 193, this place is full of amazement. The rooms are very comfortable, and the baths are surprisingly updated and spacious. Staff is very friendly. We took the wine tour as well. Very knowledgeable tour and interesting as well.

“Exceptional service and accommodation”
Highly recommend a couple of nights at Chateau Pape Clement -- unbelievable experience in what is truly paradise in the town of Pessac, immediately west of Bordeaux city. I don't know how to describe the chateau other than to say it's a freaking castle -- the grounds are amazing, but our favorite spot was the spacious roof top terrace where we would spend each evening enjoying the views of the vineyards and watching the city lights of Bordeaux in the distance. The staff at Pape Clement were incredible -- from Elsa, to Jessica, to Antoine, to David -- exceptional service and accommodation. Highly recommend !

“The sommelier was very informative”
This was one of many wine tours for us, but the tour of the grounds and the history behind them made the tour worthwhile. The gardens, landscaping, vineyards, and glass house designed by Eiffel are all part of the incredibly long history behind the estate. The sommelier was very informative and engaging during the wine tasting. Highly recommend a visit.
