Great location in the middle of the vineyards. Nice building. Terrific staff with perfect English. Excellent buffet breakfast served family style--get to know the other guests. Our room was a bit funky and small but our friends were in the main building and had no complaints.

My wife and I stayed here for one night in June 2009. The accommodation and service are both of a very high standard, with no expense spared on furnishings and fittings. Staff were professional, friendly and eager to help. The location was good (about 2 minutes drive into town) and the setting was simply stunning. Make sure you get some...

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Chateau Franc Mayne in May 2008. We stayed in the Black and White room and it was extremely clean and well decorated. The windows open directly into the courtyard and the bathroom is open to the room, but neither was an issue for us. The staff is extremely helpful...

FANTASTIC! The most beautiful setting in a gorgeous historic chateau that is a winery and small hotel. Beautiful rooms with heated towel racks and large bathrooms and the most comfortable beds. Walking distance to the magical town of St. Emilion and the setting is beyond an amazing experience in France. I stayed with a group of women in the wine...

We stayed here for 4 nights in early October and used it as a base for our travels in the Bordeaux region and the Dordogne Valley. Even though you can walk to St Emilion (as we did once) you should have a rental car or some other way of getting around. The staff was courteous, the service impecable, the views...

Everything about this place was as advertised and was just lovely. The hotel has been recently decorated in a whimsical chateau kind of way. We arrived to be greated by sweet girls who spoke great English. First we were taken on a very informative tour of the winery. The back garden was a nice place to sit and read for...

This was a beautiful and friendly place to stay. We stayed there for my wife's birthday (with the kids) and we were made to feel welcome. The Chateau was spotless, breakfast was excellent and grounds outstanding. Only wished we had stayed for a week. Only negative was it is pricey but I believe well worth it. Also disappointed we ran...

We spent the first two nights of our honeymoon at Chateau Franc Mayne, and even though we were hoping we'd love it, we can honestly say that it exceeded our expectations in every way. The staff are genuinely friendly and were unobtrusive, so you almost felt as though you were staying with friends rather than in a hotel. Inside and...

The reason to come here is the location and the pool. The chateau is outside the main town, on a hill overlooking vineyards. They have a "natural" swimming pool, which is more like a structured, landscaped little lake, with lilly pads, a waterfall and the like. Just gorgeous and refreshing to dive into. Our room was nice, but not spectacular....

Everything positive already written about this hotel is true - absolutely beautiful setting, the pool/ natural area is fantastic, the hosts are friendly and helpful, and the small touches are thoughtful. We stayed for 3 nights at the start of a 2 week trip and it was one of the nicest places we stayed. The walk to St Emilion is...
