In gentle countryside of wooded valleys near pretty Ste Foy la Grande, this smartly renovated farmhouse has its origins in the wine industry; St Émilion lives and breathes wine. You will be impeccably looked after by lovely, relaxed, fuss-free owners Trish and Mark, who give you serene rooms in classical-chic style – heated stone floors, designer fabrics, African art, touches of tartan from home. All the bedrooms, upstairs and down, have big beds and super bathrooms, and dinners are delicious. Outside: a lovely terrace, a park-like garden edged with cedars and weeping willows, a heated saltwater pool. Gorgeous!
