Excellent website. Contact before arrival offering assistance and suggestions to improve stay. Lovely welcome from Christine who was friendly and extremely helpful throughout our stay. Gave us local maps and suggestions of places to visit. Food was wonderful and almost all homemade. Beautiful views over vineyards . We would definitely return.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 days and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. The buildings have been restored beautifully and the surrounding area is very pretty, quiet and relaxing. It is very interesting to learn about the local cognac and I definitely recommend going to one of the local cognac houses for some tastings. Christine the host here is a wonderful cook who serves lots of local specialities, all homemade by herself, she even makes her own yoghurt, which tastes amazing. The local apéritifs with dinner are also excellent. We will definitely back!

My husband and myself are very pleased to know that you spent a nice stay in our mansion.
Your support is an encouragement for us to make our terroir, the Grande Champagne vineyards, and Charente better known.
Thank you again for your support,

Christine Montembault

A hotel set in beautiful surroundings with vineyards as far as the eye can see. We had a lovely room with a 4 poster bed and the kids had a room next door (the family suite was booked). We had a lovely meal out on the terrace, with good children's options and various cognacs and wines. And a lovely breakfast with homemade chocolate and chestnut cake and jams etc. The pool was lovely if a bit chilly on the week we went. I only wish we had stayed for longer than a night!

This is a very beautiful place, surrounded by cognac vineyards with superb views. The accomodation is excellent and we were very well looked after by Madame Christine who is a very kind and thoughtful hostess. The home made croissants, jams and cakes for breakfast were fabulous. Lovely, home cooked local specialties on the occations that Christine cooked dinner for us. Briilliant pool in amazing setting. A holiday to remember.

We stayed in Relais st Preuil for one night only but we had a wonderful time with a very warm reception and beautiful rooms. We didn't eat at the hotel, as the restaurant was fully booked, but just up the road at a little place recommended by our host. The rooms were spotless, with lovely beds, good water pressure in the bath and showers and a quiet sleep. My only criticism is both rooms (we were a party of four) were a little dark.

We recently spent two nights at Le Relais on our way back to London from Madrid. The experience was superb. The service provided by the owner was outstanding and the room, facilities and surrondings top-notch quality. Christine and her husband were great at providing advise on local places worth visiting; do not miss the possibility of visiting a traditional distillery: it is a memorable experience for adults and kids. There are so many things to do, see and enjoy that we will surely come back next year.

We booked the apartment La Coche for 4 adults and 1 child and were delighted with the spacious apartment in this historic 17thC coach house. All rooms were huge with luxury appointments and included a full kitchen with appliances, a dishwasher and a washing machine. The location amongst the cognac vineyards is stunning with endless views of vines, sunflowers, local villages and stunning sunsets. The pool is a real plus on hot summer days and was well used by our family. Christine offers superb advice on tourism in the local areas and will make reservations for you. She also does a table d'hote with lovely home cooking accompanied by pineau, cognac and wine.
TIP: You definitely need a car to get here and to tour the area as Le Relais is very isolated (the isolation was great from our point of view)
