We stayed three nights at the Villa Beylie which is a beautifully renovated building about half an hour's drive from St Emilion. The hosts, Virginie and Jean-Marc were charming and welcoming.
We had the Newport room which is on two levels with the bed and bathroom upstairs. Everything was beautifully presented and very clean. The lounge had a door opening onto the garden with a seating area and sunshade.
Although we didn't have the best weather we managed to make use of the swimming pool and played ball with Dexter the resident welsh border collie.
Virginie is a keen cook and produced the most delicious bread and brioche for breakfast we also enjoyed the dinner she cooked for us and our fellow guests on Saturday evening.
