The hotel has only a few rooms with very nice and serene pool area and vineyard. The sitting room and breakfast room are very nice, feel like in your own home. Very clean room, comfortable bed. Staff are nice and speak perfect English!

We had a grat stay here at a very quiet weekend. We were only two Couples at the chateaux. Very relaxing with wonderful views over the vineyards and Saint Emilion area. A eco pool with fresh water and nice garden. Great breakfast and friendly staff, not very good at English though.. Only 1 km to Saint Emilion village.

Stayed here with my husband for our wedding anniversary. Simply stunning building and gardens and our room was pretty with a great view. Pool was great to look at (if a little slimy and the pool side shower wasn't working) with comfortable sun beds. There was a fab bottle of wine in the room when we arrived and the bed... More

We stayed here for one night as a treat whilst we explored Saint Emilion. Staying right in a chateau in the middle of a vineyard is just wonderful. The walk in to Saint Emilion was not far, but alongside a main road. We decided to walk rather than drive as recommended by reception given that we were visiting largely to... More

I loved this place. It was right up my alley. I was in town for a few days alone for a getaway and this was just the ticket: a beautiful Grand Cru wine-growing chateau with a nice garden, beautiful views. But note: the service here is pretty much non-existent. For me, that was fine and no issue. But if you... More

We came here for a celebratory weekend away just wanting some peace and quiet and a nice place to drink some wine and relax - and couldn't have been happier with Le Relais de Franc Mayne! I completely agree with others' comments - this is *not* trying to be a hotel or a spa - rather, it provide nice, quiet... More

While many have complained that there is no staff to pamper you -- this is a fantastic Relais. There is no pampering -- it is not a spa. It is a winery with upscale lodging. The bedrooms are wonderful and the common areas comfortable and well decorated. Be sure to take a tour of the winery. It is best if... More

This establishment is well advertised in journals and papers for its eco friendly hotel. It is very calming and pleasant. But it's not a hotel. THere is no one really in charge, and you are pretty much left to look after yourself. Our room wasn't ready mid afternoon, so we went out and came back a few hours later to... More

The grounds of the hotel and rooms are beautiful but that is where the positives stop. I would definitely not recommend this hotel. The service is simply atrocious if not non existent. It's impossible to find anyone around the hotel to answer questions or to simply order a drink in the gardens from. Yes, they do have a help yourself... More

A much better alternative to a hotel located in St Emilion itself (and the maddening daily parking situation in summer) is lodging in an area closely adjoining, such as La Gomerie, at 1 km from the old city. Le Relais de Franc Mayne is a boutique hotel --essentially a refined B&B-- that is located within the Château Franc Mayne, a... More
