From the moment we started planning our trip to Bordeaux Catherine was amazing. She persevered through date changes and train routes to ensure we could include her lovely B&B in our itinerary! The Chateau is beautiful, truly a great example of French architecture. Our rooms was huge and spotless and well appointed with personal touches such as fresh flowers and candies. We did not have a car during our stay and Catherine was more than helpful with arranging car service when we needed it, and personally picked us up from the Libourne train station upon our arrival. The amazing village of St. Emilion is a very manageable, beautiful walk through vineyards and along a quiet road. Catherine provided a delicious breakfast each morning with the 'worlds best' croissants, homemade organic yogour that was amazing, and a different baked treat each day. We enjoyed a winery tour with Catherine and have to say that the museum they have created as the tasting room is the best we have ever seen! We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and sharing a bottle of the Chateau's wine as she told us all about her days at the winery and her plans to take English language classes to improve her English for future guests! We thought her English was already great! Catherine went out of her way to help us when our flights were cancelled/rescheduled due to a strike, making sure we had new itineraries printed and rescheduling our arrangements for the car service to the airport. She also set up her outdoor furniture for us when she saw us come home with an impromptu wine and cheese party we planned to enjoy for dinner! We would stay with Catherine at Chateau Franc Pourret in a minute, and would highly recommend anyone planning to visit St. Emilion in the near future do the same!
