The perfect combination of Wine, Litterature and Luxury



Did you know that the Chateau La Tour Carnet was the scene of one of the greatest love stories of French literature? Indeed, both 16th century’s French writers, Etienne de La Boétie and Michel de Montaigne, were secretly meeting there to enjoy the unique setting offered by the property and share their common passion for wine.

To drill its secrets and enter into this historic gem, you will have to cross the elegant drawbridge and pass over shimmering moats that add the little touch to the unique atmosphere of the domain. Today, the castle, which is one of the oldest of the Medoc region, revives its prestigious past and relives this wonderful medieval time.

Walking around the corridors of the building, imagine yourself tasting a glass of Chateau La Tour Carnet wine next to Michel de Montaigne during one of its frequent visit. You will then have the privilege of falling asleep in of the two suites where the illustrious thinker stayed. Enter the world of middle age’s magic, where the enchanting and welcoming setting charm works. A new room open its doors for a journey to Ancient treasures. Worthy of an English royal palace, the La Boetie suite unleashes us to other times and the woodwork above the bed surely will lull your dreams. The Blue tits and goldfinches wake you up in the morning and invite you to contemplate the vineyard of the domain. If desired, Mr Magrez’s private chef himself will prepare his dishes embellished with vegetables from the garden. You are not dreaming! To relax, nothing easier, just open the castle doors and walk around its flowered parks or climb the tower protecting inestimable treasures of the time. Member of Bernard Magrez Luxury Wine Tourism, the La Tour Carnet guesthouse is a unique place to discover and explore the Bordeaux region and its centuries of history.
