“Incredible insider wine experience...in a beautiful, luxurious villa”
Reviewed August 5, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Much like the fine wines of this region, the RARECAT Villa has a beautiful structure with an understated opulence that is immediately apparent when you walk in the front door...yet it continues to reveal its beauty over time - and of course, like the world-class wines made here offers a super long finish...in that it leaves a lasting impression and makes you pine for a return visit. Seriously, it is the perfect pairing for a trip to Bordeaux wine country.

My friends and I stayed at this villa in the spring, and we couldn't have been more pleased: walking distance to the center of the village; lovely private rooms, each with their own ensuite bathroom; and a fantastic living area for post-wine-tour glasses of wine and conversations that seek to solve the world's problems or offer epiphanies about the passions you will relentlessly pursue when you return to your reality. And then there's the spacious dining room, the outdoor pool, the sunsets that make you wonder whether life could be any more beautiful.

In addition to the lovely living accommodations, the villa owner was able to curate insider wine experiences that we felt so fortunate to have had. The wine, the stories and the history of the region all came to life thanks to the thoughtful itinerary and experiences that they created for us.

Highly recommend this villa for travelers who enjoy exceptional quality, tasteful luxury, and personalized experiences that feel unique and still undiscovered.

“Lovely home, amazing location!”
Reviewed August 2, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

I stayed in this lovely home with three friends just before Christmas. It was amazing. The bedrooms each have their own bathroom, which makes it great for traveling with a group or several couples. The kitchen is quite large and fully equipped and you can arrange in advance to have food and other supplies delivered prior to your arrival. The home overlooks several vineyards and is very quiet. It sits just outside the walls of the Village of St Emilion and is a 5 minute walk into the village for dinner, shopping etc. Tons of world class wine chateaux nearby - truly a wine lover's dream. I would definitely stay here again.

“Spectacular Villa”
Reviewed August 2, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

You couldn't ask for a better place to stay: a short stroll to the center of the village, luxury amenities throughout, and en-suite bathrooms in each room. It was perfect for a group of friends traveling together! We found a delicious boulangerie that we walked to each morning and restaurants in the evening. Saint Emilion is the best place to stay for beauty and to feel like you're in the middle of wine country. The villa overlooks vineyards! I can't wait to return!!

“Your home was a perfect retreat for us.”
Reviewed July 28, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Dear Sharon, We are home from our fabulous vacation in France. I miss the wines, chateaus, food and leisure already. Your home was a perfect retreat for us. We loved the location, comfort and ambience. It is a lovely home- you have built a beautiful home there. Thank you for letting us be part of the St. Emilion experience. A memorable trip for us. Hope that we have a chance to visit in person. Anne H
