This amazing boutique hotel has been the highlight of our months trip. Not just for the excellent location, fulfilling our dream of staying amongst the vineyards in the Bordeaux region, but for it's good sized modern room ( the Sydney) and above all..............the excellent hospitality and service provided by Justin and Vanessa. Thanks to them we had a glorious 3... More

We stayed for 5 nights in the New York room in August. We had a splendid stay. The room is really nice, very spacious and with a perfect view. The pictures don't lie! Even on the one rainy day we met, we couldn't mind less, because of the great surroundings. Justin and Vanessa really know how to have a B&B.... More

Stayed here for 4 nights, 5 days. Organising this was easy and efficient. Besides prompt emails, Justin and Vanessa even called to confirm the booking. Flew into Bordeaux, collected a hired car and drove to this gorgeous property via GPS coordinates on the website. Under an hour to get to. Not bad at all. Hiring a car (if you haven't... More

We also ate dinner which was a plate of delicious local cheese, charcuterie and home made cherry jam by Justin! Great quiet spot and easy to find by bicycle as we did. Breakfast was included and beautifully presented - fresh fruits, choice... More

The accommodation spotless and comfortable. Certainly somewhere we would return to.St Emillion is a lovely town with plenty to do and the local wines and opportunities to try before buying were...

This truly is a very special place with wonderful hosts, Vanessa, Justin and 2 year old Imi. Having spent a good period of time researching where to stay, we had high expectations due to the great reviews already written...we were not disappointed. We arrived at lunchtime, greeted and offered lunch. This all set the scene for the rest of our... More

Little to add to other top reviews. What a fabulous place - great hosts, fantastic rooms, beautiful view, total peace. This was a really memorable short break in the heart of Bordeaux country. Justin and Vanessa couldn't have been more welcoming. Thank you.
