“Exceptional B&B near Bordeaux”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2012

Beau Sejour! What a remarkable place and experience! This is a "don't miss"!

There’s a reason Beau Sejour is the #1 B&B in the Bordeaux area. While there is no doubt the beautifully refurbished old farmhouse and the wonderful food is noteworthy, what makes Beau Sejour such a great and unusual experience is the genuine warmth, hospitality and charm of the Stratfords. Maureen and Jon live their inn-keeping philosophy to the fullest: “Welcome to our home. You are friends and honored guests.” We found this to be so true, even as first-time visitors.

We came to Beau Sejour in search of a nice place to stay; we left having made new friends. What more can one say . . . We shall return!

It's taken till now to find the time to join TA so I could write this review. But that's how great and gracious this place and Maureen and Jon are. They went beyond out of their way to find an out of this world wine tour for us. Every request from food to touring was met with assistance that exceeded expectation. In fact you would have thought we were their most important guests, but I suspect everyone felt that way. Just on my third trip to France this year and wish each stay could have been at Beau Sejour, none beat this one. Thanks Maureen and Jon

We spent three nights at Beau Sejour last spring, and I have been meaning to write a review lo these many months. I have nothing but great things to say about Jon, Maureen, and their lovely home. As it was our first time in the area, Maureen spent a good chunk of time helping us figure out how to organize our days, from wine tasting and dinner recommendations to kid activities. Meanwhile, Jon managed to locate a ball somewhere in deep storage so that our space-starved girls could run around and play soccer in the yard. Heaven. In addition to exceptional hosts, we enjoyed delicious food (almond cake!) and a charming room with modern amenities. I will continue to recommend Beau Sejour to friends and look forward to when we might someday return!

My partner and I had an excellent stay with Maureen and Jon whilst visiting Saint-Emilion, France. Maureen and Jon were both very warm and welcoming from the moment we arrived. The rooms are lovely and the house has been beautifully renovated, including a modern bathroom and very comfortable bed, in a peaceful surround. We would have been satisfied with all of this alone, but were also very happy with the decision we had made to join Maureen and Jon for dinner. Maureen proved to be an outstanding chef and the food was superb! This was nicely complemented with Jon's humour and excellent knowledge of the area. The food was matched nicely with some excellent wine from the local area; all in all proving to be a great evening. We highly recommend you take them up on dinner during your stay. Thanks to their beautiful home, wonderful food and warm hospitality Beau Sejour was without a doubt the best guest house we visited during our travels in France!

This was our third time in five years that we’ve been at Beau Séjour; on this occasion we stayed in the “gîte” together with our 2 small children.

We were glad to see that nothing much changed. Maureen and Jon set the quality bar high and kept it there throughout the years; our stay was perfect - as usual.

The “gîte” was ideal for our family; it was spacious enough to accommodate all of us – our two children have each had their own separate room, while we had ours.

Maureen and Jon made an exception and brought us dinner every other night we stayed there; one night we even had dinner together with Maureen and Jon, whose company (and British humour…) we very much enjoyed until after midnight.

Jon recommended us a series of wines that proved to be very good (those bottles of Gessan we bought are long over…). Maureen suggested several other places worth a visit that we were not able to see on the previous two instances we’ve been at Beau Séjour.

Our children enjoyed playing with Fino, one of the hosts’ two dogs, under the close supervision of Maureen; I was pleasantly surprised to see that Fino would sit and give its right paw at my command!

I must say we visited probably more than 100 rural houses in the latest 10 years; Beau Séjour is by far our favorite. We’ll be back for sure in the summer of 2012.

Maureen and Jon receive their guests in the Beau Séjour as if they were friends (many are return visitors) or friends of friends. Their house is large, and the rooms are comfortable and beautifully furnished. They know and love the Bordeaux region, and its wines and food. They are eager to share their knowledge with their guests. They offer a generous sample of the foods and wines they have discovered at their wonderful suppers. These suppers give real meaning to the term ‘table d’hôte.’ Maureen and Jon eat with their guests; everyone is seated at the same table. (Special allowance is made for people with a specific diet: my brother and his wife, who brought us to the Beau Séjour, are vegetarians). The conversation is general. English speakers and French speakers find a common language and join in the conversation. At this table we spoke with people we might not have spoken with in a hotel. Jon and Maureen have created a wonderful destination for a holiday. My congratulations and thanks to them.

The nicest bed and breakfast I have stayed in. Maureen and John were so helpful and welcoming. Not a bad word to say about it! Loved it.
