Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 3, 2013

We had a wonderful stay, Nikki and Julian were superb hosts. We stayed for two nights, which seemed like 5 by the time we left. The rooms spacious and clean, and the beds were very comfortable. The breakfast was perfect, a great selection. The location was excellent, we're were less then a 5 min walk to downtown. However the most important aspect was how at home Nikki and Julian made us feel. Truly a gem, and we will absolutely return! Thanks again Paul and Brittney

My wife and I stayed three nights here this past May. Nikki & Julian have remodeled an old apartment building into an "uber" cozy B & B. We stayed in the Soutard suite and was well worth the extra $$. The room and the rest of the property is beautifully decorated with warm colors contrasted by the natural stone construction of the building.........very soothing, tranquil and organic. The Soutard suite offers views of the vineyards from 2 sides. It also houses a separate travertine shower, which is actually a spare closet that they converted.......a really nice treat every morning. The breakfast was also very nice; french press coffee, breads, fruits and cereals. Nikki & Julian are gracious hosts and are very accommodating with all requests.

The property itself sits just outside the north entrance to the walled city of St. Emilion.........which contains an endless array of Chateau tasting rooms, wine shops and restaurants. One nice touch and proved to be very helpful to us in the three nights we were there, is that they send you a PDF of restaurant and vineyard recommendations, based on their experience........very helpful when you are in a new place. I particularly feel in love with the vineyards that make up the St. Emilion growing region. It just had a magical feel that made me not ever want to leave.

One thing I would like to point out that I think is a little deceiving from their website and photo gallery; the picture that shows they property nestled amongst the vineyards is a tad misleading. While the property is surrounded by vineyards, it also happens to sit right on the main road.....the photo conveniently omits this fact. While it proved not to be an issue whatsoever, it still gave the wrong impression and set up false expectations. My wife and I try and do as much homework as possible in an attempt to avoid travel surprises........so when we first arrived it kind of threw me a bit, but that quickly faded as we nestled into this lovely place. (I am including a couple of pics taken from the room to show a better perspective)

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights as part of our European honeymoon. We were initially in a smaller room as all the other rooms were booked however after the first night Julian and Nikki moved us to a much larger room at no extra cost once it became available. They were the most wonderful hosts and ensured we were comfortable for our entire stay. Breakfast was amazing and I couldn't wait to get downstairs every morning to enjoy it. There are only 5 rooms in the property so it was intimate but we had all the privacy we needed. Each afternoon a bottle of Julian's own wine was left out along with cake for all the guests to enjoy. The property is less than a 5 minute walk into the centre of Saint-Emilion so the location was perfect, and the views over the vineyards were breathtaking. Julian and Nikki booked us in on a private wine tour and recommended and made reservations at restaurants for us, nothing was too much trouble. We've raved about it to our family and friends so am sure they will be visiting soon.

Room Tip: There is one room on the ground floor if you have difficulty with stairs. We stayed in the room Vill...

What an amazing find this place is; the rooms are spacious, the beds are extremely comfortable, breakfast is unhurried and there's plenty of choice, you can enjoy a glass of wine (made by the owners) in the evening at no extra cost, it's a short walk into the centre of town and Nikki and Julian are supurb hosts! Julian arranged for us to visit a Chateau we hadn't a hope of getting into ourselves and then drove up there himself to show us the way! Their restaurant recommendations were great, not only in St Emilion but Nikki also suggested a great place in Sauternes and booked a Chateau tour for us. This is 'the' place to stay in St Emilion...go and see for yourself!

We stayed here in June 2012 for only one night on our way to a wedding from Bordeaux and wish we could have stayed so much longer. The house is absolutely beautiful and our room was stunning. The huge bed was incredibly comfortable and the room had all the luxuries you could hope for. The hosts could not have been more helpful and hapily recommended things to do in the area and restaurants in the village. We can't wait to return as one night was simply not long enough!

What a great find. Really close to the Main Street of St Emilion yet private an quiet. Excellent hospitality, superbly comfortable bed and a great breakfast. Our hosts Nicki and Julian were extremely friendly and helpful. Coffee, tea or a glass of wine (on the house) set the scene for a very relaxing stay. Top advice on the local restaurants.
Highly recommended.
