This place is a treate! The location is nice with wines on all the sides of the chateau, staff very observant and attending, the dinner awesome and roomes nice. However, the gym was smal and not well equipted, but it did not mater since the location offered fantastic scenery for a morning run. This place is not just for honeymooners,... More

This hotel could really be something. It is a beautiful building, overlooking Chateau Figeac and then onto Petrus. Location is A*. We stayed in a room in the chateau, generally this was good, bathroom a little tired and bed a little firm but this is being picky. Wifi does not work on the second floor but that is no great...

We enjoyed our stay and the service at the reception desk was good. Unfortunately the food & beverage service is average at best. One particular waiter was downright rude not only to people on our table but we heard him having a go at a couple on the next table at breakfast the following morning. Shame as it dampened our...

The Chateau is eye catching and inviting, in addition the rooms are nicely and differently decorated, with strong colours and some antique furniture.Nespresso machine in room. Pool area is noting special, but the pool is good size and well needed in the summer heat. Nice SPA, with a good choice of treatments. Restaurant and service is good, enjoyed the tasting... More

We had the privilege of staying at this hotel from July 10-14. The surroundings are beautiful, the air is so very clean, and you can literally smell the vines. Our weather was not the greatest, but that is not the fault of the hotel. We stayed in the chateau itself. Our room was nicely appointed and very clean, but a... More

Typically french... Magnificent gardens in the middle of St Emilion vineyards. Just a dream. Beautiful original round room (11) Tremendous food. Slow service due to a lack of restaurant staff.Staff is trying everything possible to meet your request. Request to sleep in the castle, and not in the dependancies. It is too expensive for what it is.

A wonderful stay with 5 star service in the middle of the vineyards. A beautiful chateau a few minutes away from the picturesque town of St Emilion, a must-see if you are in that area of France.

My wife and I just spent a couple days here on our 10th anniversary. The Manor is simply gorgeous, located in a beautiful area. The restaurant is incredible, the views, the service, the food everything. My only criticism is that the wifi in the rooms was very slow. We are already planning our trip back!
