Thor and Veronique were very friendly hosts who spoken perfect English as we didn't speak French. Their home is beautiful over looking the vineyards. Saint Emilion is very close with amazing history. Thor cooked a fantastic meal in the evening (which you have to pre-book). We shared it with a French couple who were good company. The breakfast was plentiful... More

Immediately on arrival we were made to feel at home and were given lots of assistance in booking vineyard tours and great recommendations for dinner. We had the home cooked meal one evening and it really was a treat. Thor is a great cook and it felt rather special. I cannot recommend this place enough with its clean, modern rooms... More

We enjoyed 5 nights at La Petite Madeleine. Booking process was easy, directions and information clear and helpful. Tasty dinner prepared by Thor with excellent wine selections. Breakfasts were ample - freshly delivered croissants/pastries. Room was clean and comfortable-room looking onto the vineyard we liked. Suggestions about activities, wine-tastings, and restaurants were very good. Thank you Veronique and Thor!

I cannot recommend this B&B enough!!! The rooms are lovely tidy and clean. The hosts are so friendly and helpful! They gave us great tips on what to visit, where to eat. They were always happy to help. It's was really nice to sit in the courtyard and have a wine with the owners. They also do a meal option... More

We thought quite a bit where to stay for three nights in our St Emilion stop of our Bordeaux tour. La Petite Madeleine turned out to be a spot on selection! The actual village of St. Emilion is packed with tourists on daytime and practically empty on evenings. La Petite Madeleine is located a couple of kilometers away in the... More

Really close to St Emilion. Clean and well appointed, this is a great place to base yourself in the region. You need a car. We have stayed in quite a few B&b but have never found such great hosts as Thor and Veronique. They do a great dinner for the guests. Sitting in the garden with a glass of wine... More

Though having been to the St. Emilion region twice before, this place is certainly worth a bookmark. Being the only (and first for 2015 :) ) guests due to the fact it was off season probably is a different experience then staying here with a full house of guests. But Veronique and Thor were some very nice an friendly owners... More

We stayed for four nights at La Petite Madeleine and we were so glad we picked this CdH as it met and exceeded all our expectations. It is only minutes drive from St Emilion and is right in the middle of the wine growing area, surrounded by vineyards and far reaching views. Everything was spotlessly clean and the living room,...

We enjoyed a 1 night stay at the Petite Madeleine on our recent trip through France. Located just outside the picturesque village of Saint Emilion the experience is calm and relaxing. All your needs are catered for, from wifi to bicycles and helpful tips about the local area. Would highly recommend taking the dinner, bed and breakfast option which was... More

All 6 of us had a very positive experience at La Petite Madeleine. After a rough time picking up our rental car and getting in very late at night it was wonderful to be greeted by Veronique & Chef Thor (Thor's real name was very difficult for us to pronounce so we respectfully called him by a well deserved name,...
