I had been to St Emilion many years before and knew I wanted to return. It felt like a bit of a crap shoot when I booked this hotel (there are not a lot of choices within the town limits). What a pleasant surprise. The hotel is conveniently located near a main entrance to town so available parking is very close. The rooms were recently redone and were spacious, attractive and comfortable. The town is pretty quiet at night but even so, we could have our windows open and not hear people carousing at neighboring restaturants. I have family living in France and they had recommended a guide who in turn recommended restaurants, etc. We ended up eating at the Logis restaurant the 2nd night and were very happy (better than our guides recommendation). Pierre is a great host and he and my husband smoked cigars and drank wine together at an outside table. He was the right balance of making you feel he was a local friend and was interested and cared about you and your travels without inserting himself into your business. The fresh breakfast delivered outside your bedroom door was also pleasant. Pierre willingly brought ours early the day of our departure. The hotel is not large, 3 (?) rooms, which I found preferable. The restaurant downstairs catered to guests as well as the public. They also have a little wine shop (the first of the 3 businesses) run by his son and is where you check in. We didn't end up visiting it but looked as though he had a fine selection of wines.
