What a great place to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary! If you are looking for a place to stay in Saint-Émilion, look just ten minutes northeast. The château is situated amongst the vineyards, and sits on a triangle of land between two country roads – hence the name, Château de Môle. The château is a working vineyard, and has been completely remodeled and restored. Our room (the Malbec Room) was huge, with a new and very comfortable king size bed. The room was furnished with furniture in the bedroom and in a dining area that was between the bathroom and the bedroom. The decor really worked, and is a cross between contemporary and French country. The windows looked out over the vineyards. In the mornings, we heard tractors being revved up for the fall harvest. It was not disturbing, but rather reassuring that this year’s grapes were making its way to bottles for us to drink in late 2012. Our bathroom was huge by European standards, and the shower had a wonderful rain forest shower head. It was stocked with plenty of big fluffy towels and a fine array of toiletries.
Our host, Maryline Nouet, was fantastic! She is so incredibly helpful, friendly and good humored (She thinks her English is not good. It is excellent.). Maryline was an excellent resource. She gave us recommendations, and made reservations for us – a must for most European restaurants. Everyone at Château de Môle was very friendly! One of the men who works in the vineyards was always smiling and talking to us. He even brought us some luncheon meat one evening as we drank a bottle of wine from the area in their garden area.
We were even given a special tour of the winery, along with a private wine tasting with the château’s down-to-earth owner. The breakfast was one of the best we had on the trip, with delicious pastries and fresh bread (bought every morning), homemade jams, miel (honey), butter, delicious French yogurt, tea, and coffee.
Don't hesitate to book a room here. The value for money is outstanding! Prices just down the road in Saint-Émilion are double of Château de Môle. There are so many wonderful memories due to this great bed and breakfast. We will definitely be back to southwest France, and Château de Môle is where we will be staying!
