This well-kept secret is a dream come true for everyone who likes historic buildings, original interior design and holiday destinations out in the country side in France. Le Relais de Franc Mayne is a romantic boutique hotel, housed in a real French chateau near Saint-Emilion, and surrounded by magnificent vineyards. Wine-lovers will wonder where this hotel has been all their lives! The Joy of Wine: Le Relais de Franc Mayne
If you’re serious about wine, you should take a close look at this romantic hotel in Aquitaine. Historic boutique hotels are ten-a-penny, but not many have such a quaint interior design and their own vineyards attached! South-western France is a Mecca for wine-lovers, but they’re not likely to experience a more unique place: you don’t just drink the wine, you can see how it’s made and tour the vineyards (which, incidentally, offer both Merlot and Cabernet Franc). Facilities at Le Relais de Franc Mayne
The wine is one thing, but you’ve got to fall in love with a historic hotel that boasts a swimming pool, a marvellous dining room and a billiard room! There is no restaurant at this romantic country house hotel. However, guests are served a sumptuous breakfast and lovely snacks, such as freshly baked bread, cheese and antipasti accompanied by a good glass of wine. Rooms at Le Relais de Franc Mayne
Another inspired touch: each of the 12 rooms at this country house hotel in France is entirely unique, and themed. There’s a French country-style room, an Indian fusion room, a Chinese-themed room, even a Pop Art room.
