Just 12km from Saint Emilion, the red ivy on the side of this tall, elegant Harry Potter of a château is unforgettable. Pitray has been owned by the same family for the last 600 years, and a tour of the wine estate is offered to all guests. There are four bedrooms here and a large swimming pool in the grounds. Slightly shabby in places, but very atmospheric.

Useful information: Rooms: €150 including breakfast.
