Take a trip back through history with a stay at Château La Tour Carnet.
Ranked as one of the oldest estates in the Médoc, La Tour Carnet features a fine medieval tower that jealously guards the treasures of the troubadours, the soul of Michel de Montaigne and La Boétie and boasts a majestic period suite.
This character Château, set within a shimmering moat, has a proud 900 year-old history. It can only be accessed via its fine drawbridge.

About our bedrooms
Some experiences can be described; others need to be lived.
Château La Tour Carnet has been an eyewitness to Bordeaux’s Art de Vivre and passion for vines for several centuries now and provides a tranquil, luxury stopover for its guests.
Two outstanding suites offer intimacy and diversity in their period charm. Guests can particularly appreciate the French-style elegance in the fine decorations and can enjoy a wide range of premium services suited to individual taste and customised by the staff of the château.
Meticulous attention to detail and absolute quality are our watchwords: welcome to our château!
The Michel de Montaigne
This room features a Renaissance four-poster bed made in carved oak, while the floor is in artisan-made terra cotta tiles.
The bedroom’s décor comprises a gold leaf decorated bed-ceiling featuring lions; bronze rams posing on the bedside lamps; and aristocratic-style armchairs, each side of the fireplace, in red velvet and embroidered in gold.
Medieval times and its memories live on in the royal blue hangs, the red fabrics, and the fleur de lys embroideries.
This suite is a carefully-composed metaphor expressed in an elevated style. Marbles adorn the walls, while the bespoke décor features a Byzantine console table with lions’ heads. Bunches of grapes and vine leaves embellish the fabrics and the carved columns of the four-poster bed.
In the warm harmonies of the red, gold, green and bronze colours, guests can feel the conquering magic of bygone times. Battle scenes are carved in the wood pieces, while traditions of the medieval era decorate the ceilings.
In materials fit for English royal palaces, in the silk and velvet curtains and the damask armchairs, each fabric is turned into a lush, refined piece of archive.
Who can resist a proper French breakfast?
Pressed fresh fruits, yoghurts, local smoked salmon or fresh cheeses… Not forgetting honey served on its honeycomb.
The château’s kitchen staff will prepare eggs for you on request, from boiled or scrambled to beautifully golden omelettes.
