“Unique and fantastic place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

A real find in this small village, just a few kilometres from St Emilion. The most friendly and welcoming couple i have ever met; Marie Jose and Andre were wonderful! The room is an eccentrics' delight, with a huge open fire and an most beautiful old bed. The breakfast was simple but delicious, with breads, juices, coffee and home-made preserves. This is what a B&B should be like, but so seldom is; unique, quirky, comfortable and welcoming without being intrusive. Well done!

Room Tip: Only stayed in one, but that experience leads us to think they will all be quite unique andlovely

The house is beautiful inside and out. The garden was stunning and the home was filled with history. Andre is a wonderful host and helped with local recommendations as well as changing breakfast to suit my allergies. We had a lovely time.

We stayed at Chez Papi et Mamie for one delightful night on the 21st of December on our way to Spain, we are a family of six, with two little children and from the first minute we felt like we arrived to a friend or family house, just that simple. The house is full of character, the hosts are authentic and full of history and kindness.
Breakfast was delicious and relaxed We have to apologize to André & Marie because we did not realize that we were in French time until we were on the road, so we went down to have breakfast one hour later. Sorry!
We will definitely come back and spend some more time here.

Papi and mamie are the perfect hosts. Happy to allow you room but also to allow you to share their home and their lives. The house is so full of character and personality. A lifetime of eclectic and eccentric collecting of objects and experiences. We covered Africa, qualities of various timbers, dance , music, local history, family, the vikings, wine and more. so stimulating so easy to recommend.!

My wife Shelley and I recently had the absolute pleasure of staying 3 nights at "Chez Mamie & Papi". We may never have had a better accommodation experience in all our years of travelling. The property itself is so full of warmth and charm that the moment you drive through the gate you just know you are in for a treat. Marie-Jose (Mamie) is one of those rare gems, a person who just fills a room with charm and positive energy.

Our amazing trip through the vineyards in the 84 year old vintage car was a real highlight of our 7 week European holiday. We cannot speak highly enough of Chez Mamie and Papi and would encourage anyone visiting this amazing region of France to consider staying a night or 10!!

We stayed seven days with Mamie and Papi and had a wonderful time. They made us feel as if we belonged. They are just like the grandparents everyone dreams of having. Andre was up every morning to welcome us with a wonderful cup of coffee and Marie shared her wide range of jams. (Where does she find the time) When she wasn't taking us out on an excursion of one type or another she sent us off to a local site beyond the normal tourist sites. When you look through the eyes of a local you see what they see as important. A wonderful way to really get to know the people of a country. We can't thank them enough for our stay and will definitely return to visit them again next time we come to France.

Room Tip: The Private Suite is great for families.

We enjoyed out stay very much, great location, very friendly and hospitable family, very nice rooms with lots of space, and a pool in the garden if weather permits. Lovely breakfast with homemade preserves. We will try to visit again.
