Le Relais de Franc Mayne

Le Relais de Franc Mayne

****

Part boutique-hotel, part working winery, Le Relais de Franc Mayne is the oenophile’s boutique hotel of choice. Its nine uniquely styled rooms feature hand-picked antiques and furnishings, its cavernous cellars are packed with barrels of St-Emilion from the grapes grown in the château’s seven-acre vineyard, and the welcoming family-run feel ensures it’s a boutique hotel to return to – even if it’s only for another tasting.

Highlights:

  • Learn wine-making from the hotel’s own vintners

  • Breath-stealing vineyard views

  • A short walk from mediaeval St-Emilion

Smith extra

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

We arrive in Saint-Emilion late evening, just in time to see shopkeepers closing doors on rows of gleaming ruby bottles. Stone roads meander away offering us more views to mellow buildings that reek of historical importance and the work of the great Dordogne valley in producing wines for kings and princes. Restaurants invite us to step out of the twilight into the promising glow inside, but anxious to start tasting, we hurry on to Le Relais de Franc Mayne.

As well as producing Grand Cru wines on the outskirts of the mediaeval town of Saint-Emilion, much to Mr Smith's and my delight, the Chât
