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

We arrived in Blaye on a Sunday and left on Tuesday. Looking back at our trip which included the French Riviera, this was our favorite part of the trip. Not much was happening in the town on Sunday or Monday, but it didn't matter. Our room was spacious and comfortable. Les and Clarissa were wonderful hosts. We went on a... More

Can't say enough about our stay here. Les and Clarissa were the perfect hosts and very accommodating. We stayed in the Rouselle room which overlooked the park and the river through two sets of french doors to the balcony. Very nice room with a large bathroom and the guest kitchen right across the hall. They have an "honor bar" which... More

Make sure to take a trip to this area of France next to Bordeaux, especially if you are a wine aficionado. Set amongst outstanding vineyards, this B&B caters to clients for an outstanding experience. Clarissa and Les are most personable and relaxing company, they truly make you welcome and at home away from home. Assuring everything is top notch from... More

What a fabulous way to spend a few nights with friends. Les and Clarissa are lovely and their knowledge of the region is remarkable. I have never felt so at home, happy and relaxed in my life. These two completely understand what it means to run a B&B. Make sure to take in Les' "wine debunking" and the Blaye market.... More

A wonderful and warm welcome from Clarissa, Les and Thomas when I arrived. Clarissa provided excellent information about the town itself, and a number of quality restaurants to visit and places to kick around town. Blaye itself is a beautiful, quiet little town about an hour from Bordeaux - surrounded by beautiful vineyards, and with a relaxing unpretentious vibe about... More

Oh Wow! We were lucky to get a cancellation just for one night. At the time of booking I asked for a wine 'debunking and tasting' session and when we arrived, all was organised at the wine bar across the street. What a great night, hosted by Thomas who is a young French, expert, charming, hospitable guy who speaks excellent... More

A wonderful and hospitable welcome from Les and Clarissa. This is like living in someones home as a guest. If you want sterile modernity this is not the place for you, but if you want to taste a bit of the real region, its wine and food, this is the place. This is a large Victorian house, with period furniture.... More

My partner and I stayed at Villa St. Simon for 5 nights beginning of October 2013. We also went on 3 off the wine tours (Blaye, Saint Emilion and Medoc). The accommodation was comfortable, quirky and very reasonable in price. We personally found the hosts Les and Clarissa helpful, warm and very generous. The atmosphere that they have created is...
