What a find this place was. We booked one of the cottages at this place in the first 2 weeks of August and we were very fortunate as we booked very last minute. We had such an amazing holiday. The accommodation is of a very high standard and very comfortable with a great kitchen area. The setting is just magnificent... More

Found this place by accident when we were looking for a place between Calais and Biarritz to stay the night. It is the most romantic and quiet place we have ever stayed. From the 400yr old beams to the intoxicating scent of lavender. I love it! Christine is wonderful, enthusiastic, friendly and takes a great deal of pride in her... More

Lovely property and faultless hospitality. Good honest French cuisine from Christine with recommendations and engaging conversation over breakfast and dinner. The relais is remote and there is nothing else within walking distance, but that for us added to the attraction and charm. Just enjoy the views across vineyards and peace and quiet which is free.

Two of us stayed overnight at this stunning relais en route from La Rochelle to Poitiers via Cognac. The location is just beautiful and our room was small but staggeringly good with a 150 year old Chinese four poster bed and lovely wooden wardrobes and bed stands, and a lovely bathroom. Our hostess was the lady owner, Christine, not only... More

This luxury guesthouse is one of the nicest places we've stayed at. The location is wonderful, with an amazing landscape. The guesthouse has rooms or apartments for groups large and small. Our room was very clean, most tastefully decorated, and the bed was very comfortable. Christine's friendliness and cooking were equal to none. We highly recommend Le Relais de Saint... More

Just a note to say how much our family enjoyed our 3 night break at Le Relais St Preuil. We really enjoyed the excellent food and made good use of the swimming pool and tennis court. The hospitality was second to none, and we had a very relaxing time. The hotel is in a secluded location, but we enjoyed a... More

Excellent website. Contact before arrival offering assistance and suggestions to improve stay. Lovely welcome from Christine who was friendly and extremely helpful throughout our stay. Gave us local maps and suggestions of places to visit. Food was wonderful and almost all homemade. Beautiful views over vineyards . We would definitely return.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 days and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. The buildings have been restored beautifully and the surrounding area is very pretty, quiet and relaxing. It is very interesting to learn about the local cognac and I definitely recommend going to one of the local cognac houses for some tastings. Christine the host here... More

My husband and myself are very pleased to know that you spent a nice stay in our mansion. Your support is an encouragement for us to make our terroir, the Grande Champagne vineyards, and Charente better known. Thank you again for your support, Christine Montembault More

A hotel set in beautiful surroundings with vineyards as far as the eye can see. We had a lovely room with a 4 poster bed and the kids had a room next door (the family suite was booked). We had a lovely meal out on the terrace, with good children's options and various cognacs and wines. And a lovely breakfast... More
