We found the Villa St Simon completely by accident and then had a most wonderful stay. The accommodations are very complete and reflect the historic nature of the house. There is a restaurant associated with the Villa which looked quite nice. Unfortunately we could not visit due to schedule. The hosts were like old friends. We felt we had known... More

This is a love it or hate it hotel. If you want modern luxury then this place is not for you. If you want to stay in a beautiful old rustic French townhouse, run by super friendly people, then you will enjoy it as much as we did. We took the family room with 2 bedrooms and one bathroom on... More

Villa st Simon is an chic slice of authentic French luxury, without the stuffy atmosphere. It's like staying with old friends, warm, friendly, inviting, and special. I went here in April for the Wine Festival with a large group of girlfriends celebrating a special occasion, and Les and Clarissa couldn't have been more helpful, fun, brilliant hosts. Their local knowledge... More

This is a fantastic place to stay outside of Bordeaux. Clarissa and Les are great hosts and make you feel very welcome and comfortable. Parking is no problem and is right outside the B&B. The double room we had was a good size with a wardrobe for hanging clothes. The en-suite bathroom was large and included two wash basins in... More

Stayed here for a week on an annual girls-trip in one of the apartments. A wonderful and very comfortable room with lots of space to stretch out. We could not have asked for more hospitality from Les, Clarissa and Matthew. You could tell that they genuinely wished for us to have a wonderful time and made us feel like true... More

We didn't stay here but accidentally arrived here thinking this was our accommodation and so pleased we did bump into Clarissa! She showed us exactly where our accommodation apartment was (behind theirs), invited us to a wine 'debunking' at their restaurant then to a trip to St Emilion and also to join their guests for breakfast as well. Hospitality plus... More

Enjoyed our stay in Blaye, and didn't stray far from Villa St Simon as our hosts, Les and Clarissa, made us feel very much at home and welcome. Room was extremely comfortable. Restaurant associated with Villa St Simon, La Galerie, was interesting, and reasonable. Lovely tapas selection, and great steaks. All very fresh. Good fun vibe. Popular with locals. Would... More

This was my first trip to Villa St Simon, but the 3rd for the hen of our party, my sister. And what a weekend we had. The welcome from Les and Clarissa was warm and they embraced our group of 22 hens with open arms. The rooms are beautiful, grand and very clean. Some of us stayed in the self... More
