“Rustic charm amongst the vineyards”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

SENSATIONAL! La Petite Madeline is a gorgeous Chateau with a rustic charm, run by a beautiful family. We travelled with a group of 5 and had nothing but good things to say about this place! The home cooked meals they offer are a must, the bikes they have available are great to ride around the rolling hills of vineyards. The accommodation was clean, great location, service was fantastic and the very helpful hosts went out of their way to give us a very memorable experience. Thankyou!

Thank you.
I must say that we do not live in an actual château. It is more an old wine farm which we have renovated.
It was hard work and it is nice to see that our work is appreciated to the point that you would describe it as a château!
You had different plans for the end of the journey. We hope that everything is going well for each one of you.

We highly recommend this charming B & B. Veronique and Thor were great hosts and so fun to talk with. They were very helpful with all our questions, also. Great location and surroundings. We enjoyed a delicious dinner and great wines. Thor is a great chef. And the breakfasts were perfect. Veronique's mother's jams are the best! We hope to return someday and will plan to stay here again.

Room Tip: We loved our room with a view of the vineyards!

Veronique and Thor Inge are amazing couple, we felt like home. There are comfortable rooms w/ private bathrooms. The breakfast is amazing, full of french breads and 6 types of jam.
The plaçe is well located, 5 min driving from centre ville.
I highly recommend this B&B.

Veronique and Thor Inge were excellent hosts. The home cooked dinners were great and enjoyed drinking a few wines there.
It was a very warm and welcoming atmosphere especially considering we had a 12 month old baby - we would not stay anywhere else if we went back to Saint Emilion.

Absolutely beautiful setting and hospitality. Our room's windows looked directly onto a hillside vineyard just a stone's throw away. Veronique was so accomodating and helped us secure a driver and private Chateaux (winery) tours and an amazing hike. Veronique's parents, Paul and Bernadette were visiting and truly delightful.

Room Tip: Try to get a room upstairs as it is an old renovated home.

We spent three nights here and experienced friendly and helpful hosts.
(Even when we wrongfully assumed that there would be taxi available at train station, - we got help.)
Perfect place to live if you want to explore St Emillion and surrounding area by bike.

Thor Inge has restaurant background, - and we found his food and wine suggestions very helpful.
