Hotel Château de Mirambeau is tucked into picturesque wine country in France


Château de Mirambeau

Tucked into picturesque wine country between the charming towns of Bordeaux and Cognac, this Renaissance-style castle resides on the site of an ancient medieval fortress. Completely rebuilt in the early 1800s, it is adorned with rich fabrics and elegant antiques. The 22 guest rooms and suites feature such treasures as canopy beds, while the 20-acre grounds offer a pool, two tennis courts, a winter garden and our favorite facility, a Cognathèque for wine and Cognac tastings. An earth-friendly attitude ranges from the use of organic products in wellness center treatments to a focus on local produce in the market-inspired restaurant; delicacies include Gironde estuary caviar and Mirambeau honey.
