France – Saint-Seurin-de-Cadourne
Nestled among the vineyards just a few minutes from Saint-Estèphe, Château Réal is a manor house built in the early 19th century. Situated halfway between vineyards and the ocean, Château Réal was originally built by Monsieur Réal, a high-ranking Napoleonic officer who built it in 1800 to win the heart of his beloved
Located in the heart of the Médoc region, the building has all the hallmarks of an authentic Bordeaux manor house, standing watch over the vines and the estuary, on the front line of the wine route between carrelets, châteaux, sand and pinewood. This stone building evokes the golden age of the greatest vintages. From 1820 onwards, this authentic and singular residence was taken over by aristocratic families such as the Tronquoy family, and a suite bears their name.
Since 2020, Château Réal has been restructured by its new owners into a more contemporary, modern building. The guest house, turquoise swimming pool, stone terrace and grounds are reinvented with refined, uninhibited luxury.
Château Réal, with its panoramic views, has become the place to be for wine lovers, lovers of open spaces and elegance, and a lively meeting place. The guest house has 6 cosy rooms and suites. Decorated with parquet flooring, all have high ceilings and Italian marble showers. There’s also an 8-person outbuilding ideal for family reunions or get-togethers with friends. Activities include an outdoor swimming pool, bike rentals and massages. The 1,000-square-meter site can also be privatised, making it perfect for organising special events. This 19th-century building will win you over, whatever the occasion.
