OUR STAY AT ST EMILION

  • 5 of 5
A beautiful house in a unique town. The house is beautifully decorated in Art Deco style and looks great. It is very well equiped and had everything that was needed. The rooms were all good and we had 5 couples that all had a great time. The house is in perfect position to explore St Emilion and Pomerol. The town is historic and great to walk around. The owner is very helpfull and we had a tutored wine tasting at Vignobles and Chateau as well as a dinner at the house for 10 with a chef that came and cooked that was excellent. Overall a very memorable visit and Highly recommended.
