“Quaint, perfectly located B&B in Champagne country of France”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

You won't find more thoughtful or friendly hosts---don't miss La Villa Saint Pierre (LVSP). Our visit to La Villa Saint Pierre landed midway through a 3 week trip of Italy and France. We were welcomed by Bernadette after easily parking on the street in the evening (parking was a breeze throughout our stay). Bernadette was lovely, welcoming and despite our lack of French language skills, we had no problem communicating.

**The pictures of LVSP do NOT do the house and rooms justice.** We easily made it to our room and were more than pleasantly surprised at how lovely it was---simple but plenty of space and a serene atmosphere for the 2 adults and 1 baby. We stayed in room 4---delightful!

We teetered about breakfast after having been disappointed by other establishments---but breakfast was a delight! Yogurt, charcuterie, assortment of breads, cheese, cereal and coffee and juice---perfect way to start the day and well worth it.

LVSP was an easy walking distance from Moet and Chandon and the center city of Epernay. Pierre and Bernadette provided excellent recommendations for champagne houses, including Godart and Cartier, We loved Godart and can't thank Pierre enough for introducing it to us!

Dinner at LVSP is not to be missed. At first, we weren't sure if there were other restaurants we'd be disappointed in not visiting, but Pierre's culinary skills and convivial hosting are unparalleled. Dinner was by far one of my favorite on the trip. Pierre's happy to meet dietary restrictions or other preferences with a little notice. And, we were able to dine in the evening without having pre-reserved days in advance. Incredibly convenient! Not to mention that Pierre was thoughtful in suggesting we dine with another couple we'd been talking to earlier that day---very sweet and a lot of fun for the 4 of us.

Pierre and Bernadette, thank you for a couple of days of perfection during our trip! We hope to visit again.

Room Tip: We loved room 4, I'm not sure if all rooms have been redone but they have been working on refurb...

Hello , Bernadette and I are very touched by your comment, you quite understand the spirit that want our business . Your comment particularly affects us and is quite the opposite of what clients expect of a two star hotel . We have worked hard to make our welcoming and comfortable rooms , you chose the room you want and not a price and you have been satisfied . Bernadette has welcomed you as she always does and it was very nice with people as charming as you . We want our school to be a place of conviviality and exchange our customers find this sensation in different menus every day ( and not an extension card with the same food every day ) we develop products with day , our goal is to make you discover all aspects of the real traditional French cuisine. In this way , you can enjoy a gourmet meal or a more rustic recipe at a reasonable price . We are very pleased that your stay in Epernay has been a success and we hope to welcome you to a new residence

A nice hotel just outside the centre. Clean rooms and very friendly staff, the only negative point is the creepy painting of a little girl in the room. But I still had a very good night rest and didn't hear any creepy laughter or something similar.
This hotel is definitly a good place to stay.

I usually leave a review if somewhere was really good or really bad and I must say, this exceeded our expectations greatly!

Pierre and Bernadette really made us feel at home. We LOVED Pierre's cooking and in particular the chocolate and pear creme brûlée was delicious. Pierre sets out to cook traditional French style food and I would definitely recommend eating here.

The rooms were comfortable and clean and let's be fair, it's a place to rest your head after lots of champagne tasting!

Pierre also recommended particular champagne houses to visit. Our favourite was Godard in Moussy and we felt they gave a more personal tour and were very passionate about making great champagne. We did visit Moët and Chandon and although this was a privilege to see, we kind of felt like it was a very systematic tour in a big group on a very strict time scale.

Definitely stay here if you want great hospitality from warm, kind people. It was a pleasure meeting you Pierre and Bernadette.

We have recently returned from 2 nights with Pierre and Bernadette at their hotel. We had a wonderful time, the room, no. 8 was in the attic and had been recently refurbished. The bathroom/ shower was amazing! It was very clean, comfortable and we enjoyed the breakfasts. The hosts are very obliging and Pierre speaks good English. Parking can be a problem but after 6pm the street clears and it is then free parking so we moved our car and left it there so we could sample copious amounts of champagne! Just a 5 minute walk to Moët et Chandon, which is well worth a visit. We chose the imperial tasting so got 2 glasses of champagne, a white and a rose. Also be sure to visit the champagne shops especially c-comme! We were made to feel so welcome that we returned twice and bought 4 bottles after tasting about 6 different ones. All in all a very romantic break helped with the glorious weather, yes it was early march!

Room Tip: We had the comfort room, no 8 lovely bathroom with superb shower, very light and because it was in t...

Bonjour, merci beaucoup pour votre commentaire élogieux, nous sommes très heureux que vous ayez apprécié votre séjour à Epernay et au seing de notre hôtel. La chambre que vous avez eu, vient tout juste d'être rénovée. Auparavant, c'était une chambre dite "économique". Cette catégorie, n'existe plus, comme je l'avais annoncé il y a quelques temps, ces chambres ont été supprimées au profit de chambre confort. Tout a été revu, insonorisation, espace, salle de bain, adieu sani-broyeur, afin de vous apporter un maximum de confort pour un séjour idéal. Toute la literie de l'établissement a été changé et les draps en coton Égyptien vous apporte un confort sans pareil. Nous continuons nos efforts pour vous en faire profiter. Nous espérons vous revoir très bientôt et ainsi peut être profiter de notre cuisine qui égale notre petit déjeuner.

This city centre accommodation is a hidden gem.

This Hotel is located in an old villa in the centre of Epernay with all the important Champagne Houses on Rue the Champagne within walking distance. The rooms are good and clean and although there are some small imperfections (for instance a showerhead that cannot be fixed to the wall) it is the service that Pierre and Bernadette provide that makes the difference. We had a verry warm welcome by Bernadette and Pierre served us a perfect dinner. The breakfast was the best breakfast we had in a hotel for a long time. Pierre and Bernadette really make an effort to make you feel welcome and are they love to tell you about the Champagne region and the Champagne Houses.

It is a nice stay that I will remember for a long time.

We travelled as a couple and had an elderly aunt in tow so booked a double on the first floor and aunt had a room on the upper floor. She is in her 80s and didn't find the stairs a problem and the room was fine for her as it wasn't a problem that the toilet was in the same room as the bedroom. Ours was a smaller room but did have a separate enclosed shower and WC. Both our 2 rooms had very good powerful showers. Everything was clean and the staff friendly and helpful, car parking in the nearby street was free and for the price we paid to be in the centre of the centre of Champagne, a short walk from Ave de Champagne and all the restaurants we thought the hotel was very good value. It was a traditional city centre villa from the Belle Epoque era and had a heart and soul and was a far better experience than we would have had from something formulaic and prescriptive on the outskirts.

Room Tip: Any room in this hotel at the prices charged must be good value for the centre of Epernay

We spent 4.5 weeks in Europe visiting four countries and 10 cities. Of all 10 hotels we stayed in, this one was by far the most memorable. What made it so was the owners, Pierre and Bernadette. It felt like we were guests in their home, not their hotel. The rooms are very elegantly and tastefully decorated. The location is excellent being close to everything yet quiet too. I would highly recommend eating dinner at the hotel; do not miss out on the tarte tatin—the best we had in France. Pierre and Bernadette gave us several recommendations of where to go and what to see, such as visiting Veuve Godart et Fils, a small Champagne house in Moussy. We were sad to leave after our three nights there which did not seem long enough. Anyone visiting Epernay should make La Villa Saint Pierre their first choice.
