Along with a couple of good friends we spent one night staying in the converted vineyard workers' cottage set amongst the vines of Chateau Troplong-Mondot. It's hard to put into words how perfect it was.
The cottage is beautifully located a short walk from the Chateau itself and the restaurant where you have breakfast. You can also walk into St Emilion in around 20 minutes amongst the vines. The cottage has been modernised and very tastefully furnished with an enormous living room and two spacious bedrooms with state of the art bathrooms. It has everything you would expect from a 5 star experience and with the cost shared between two couples I consider represents excellent value considering the quality.
Sitting outside on the four comfy chairs with the view through the vines up to the chateau sipping a glass of wine is an experience that will stay with us all for a long time. And breakfast the following morning on the terrace showed us how excellent the service is from the staff and the kitchen with their own vanilla yoghurt being exceptional.
As part of the Les Belles Perdrix at Chateau Troplong Mondot, there are a couple of other accommodation options which may well be suited for a couple staying on their own rather than two couples.
