So-Arts was a perfect choice for three nights in wine country. It really felt homely, and we were given a warm welcome by the owners and lots of useful information regarding the area, top places to go etc. They assisted with making reservations (great recommendations!). The room itself was really lovely, sparkling clean (and cleaned every day), and very comfortable.... More

This Bed & Breakfast is a little gem in the vineyards. The architecture is a blend of contemporary art and traditional chateau. The rooms are spacious, clean, and comfortable. Amenities include a nice pool and solar-heated hot tub. The breakfast they serve is a traditional French breakfast with fleshly baked pastries, fruit, and a selection of cereals.

We were four adults traveling through the back roads of France and we looked on the internet that day and found So-Arts. We booked that afternoon and showed up that evening expecting a standard back country bed and breakfast. Instead we found a beautiful, contemporary, tastefully art-filled bed and breakfast. Our hostess was a charming and helpful woman who made... More

We stayed here on Saturday 10th August, as a family of 4 (2 adults + 2 children), plus 1 grandparent. We loved it. It was beautifully quiet, set amongst the vineyards. The family room and double room were immaculate and dinner was delightful. It was the last night of a two week holiday in this part of the world, and... More

Superb B&B in the countryside, vineyards surrounding the garden. Old farmyard renovated with style and an arty touch. Great welcome, sense of hospitality and kindness of the owners. Very clean place. La Reole is not far and a pleasant little town with a few restaurants and shops. We loved the place and would happily go back.

A nice stay in a wonderful place, with excellent food (I'd surely recommend to eat there in the evening!) and wonderful surroundings. Nice swimming pool and spa, with unique views. It's a nice play to go cycling also.

We only stayed one night en-route to Spain and thoroughly enjoyed it. The property has been lovingly renovated and we had a very spacious family room with some great features.

This was a truly great place to stay for out three days of cycling and discovering vineyards. From here we cycled on la route verte (a cycle path running from Bordeaux to Toulouse), visited Bordeaux, Saint Emilion, Pomerol, Sauternes amongst others.
