2 Chemin de Bon Ange, 33370 Pompignac
Originally a base of the Templar knights in the 16th century, the Romaningue estate is a marvel in itself: 80 hectares of quality vineyards, vines almost 50 years-old and unique accommodation options such as treehouses, bubble rooms and caravans. The entrance to the estate is by a winding path through the woods and past a pond, over the cellars and past a 15th century tower. The estate has 5 spectacular treehouses, each housing 2-6 people.
Bicycles are available to get to your treehouse, where you can access your room with rope ladders. In 5 minutes you and your entire luggage will be at the top, nestled 10 metres from the ground amidst the foliage of hundred-year-old trees. There is no water or electricity but the treehouses each come with their own dry toilets. Bath facilities are available as chalets near the welcome desk, along with all the towels and necessary equipment. The treehouses are perfectly furnished to make your stay as comfortable as possible: pillows, comforters, sheets, candle lanterns, oil stoves, board games, water, toilet paper, rubbish bags, matches…
A balanced mix of the three grape varieties on the estate (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc) gives a pleasant fruity wine. A stay in the Romaningue treehouses is the perfect opportunity to discover and savour the wines!
The estate is the ideal location for peace and quiet, away from the hustle and bustle of life, allowing you to relax and explore the vineyards at your own pace. They are located at the top of a calcareous-clay plateau that receives a lot of sunshine. The vineyards have been tenderly cared for by skilled winemakers for generations.
“Spent a night in a treehouse (the Sauternes) built on a bi-centenary oak tree, 8 meters above the ground: extraordinary, perfect getaway with peace and quiet…”
