Château Prieuré Marquet : a guesthouse located at the heart of a Bordeaux vineyard

Known for its excellent Bordeaux wines and prestigious guesthomes, Château Prieuré Marquet is the 2018 Best of Wine Tourism Winner.

Just in the north of Bordeaux, Château Prieuré Marquet is located in the town of Saint Martin-du-Bois. This 15th century building, which once belonged to high-ranking officials of the French court, owes its name to the church nobility. Located on a 15-hectare estate, the vineyard is once again producing wine as well as offering a few rooms where guests can relish the easy-going pace of French life.

A prestigious Bordeaux home for the discerning guest

This charming setting is organised around a central courtyard set amidst forests and neatly planted vines. Interior decorators and antique experts joined forces to create a remarkable atmosphere featuring a blend of different influences. Each common area offers a new style, and the custom-designed bedrooms are fully equipped for optimal, worry-free comfort.
