Château La Tulipe Bed & Breakfast is situated right on the shore of the Dordogne river, in the hamlet of Asques, a few kilometres from Château La Tulipe, the wine castle of Ilja and Klaas Gort.

DÉPENDANCE DU CHATEAU
FOR OUR GUESTS

For centuries our Château La Tulipe de la Garde possessed a dépendance on the banks of the Dordogne, a few hundred yards down the hill. From there the barrels of wine were loaded onto riverboats and taken to the port of Bordeaux from where they were shipped to England.

The original building is still there (we can wave at it from the garden of the Château), but it lost its functionality with the rise of modern transport, and was sold in the early 19th century. But last year, in the dreamy fishing village of Asques, not even 5 minutes from the Château, a riverside dwelling came up for sale. An eighteenth century Maison de Maître, built from the white sandstone so typical of the traditional Bordeaux wineries. After careful restorations Château La Tulipe has got, two hundred years later, again a sibling on the banks of the Dordogne.

LES CHAMBRES

Château La Tulipe Bed & Breakfast has got three double bedrooms and one double suite. All come with their own Salle de Bains. The rooms are named after the grape varieties we use here at Château La Tulipe to make our Bordeaux Superieur: Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc en Cabernet Sauvignon.

LE P'TIT-DÉJEUNER

A good night’s sleep should be followed by a hearty breakfast. And indeed, every morning, Meriam will lovingly prepare you a generous breakfast straight from her own cuisine in the B&B. The aromas of home-made bread radiate from the oven and the scent of freshly ground coffee entices you from your bed. In the shade of the ancient trees on the terrace on the river bank, you’ll enjoy fresh baguette, crispy croissants, Italian cappuccino, home made jam, honey from the castle bees and eggs from the castle chickens. Bon appétit!

Guided tour and wine tasting
au Château

A stay at the Château La Tulipe B&B includes a guided tour of Château La Tulipe, of course accompanied by a decent glass of wine. You can also sign up for a more extensive tasting session of five of our wines. This is €10 per person. Please note: tours and tastings happen exclusively on Monday to Thursday at 4pm. Attention! The Château is closed during the harvest period.

ALMOST NEIGHBOURS: CHÂTEAU LA TULIPE AND THE B&B

Château La Tulipe Bed & Breakfast is part of the Château but is located elsewhere. It’s a short five minute drive (from the castle wall you can spot it by the river) in the neighbouring village of Asques, immediately on the banks of the Dordogne.

Asques is 27 km from St. Emilion and 30 km from Bordeaux.

L'ÉQUIPE

Voilà, Klaas and Meriam, your host and hostess. Meriam receives the guests, serves your petit déjeuner, looks after the rooms and takes care of the guided tours at the Château.

Klaas makes sure you’ll get the loveliest wines at the tasting sessions and will tell you all about the production process and everything that’s involved with that. Santé for now!
