Villa St Simon is a 19th century townhome opposite a beautiful park in the charming town of Blaye, which is on the Girondoc just north of Bordeaux. Wine tasting with Les in the Cave (wonderful basement tasting room) was excellent, the staff is friendly and very helpful. They arranged wine tastings for us at several chateaus in the area and...

Booked from the website as we knew where we wanted to start our Bordeaux experience from but had no idea of how etc. The hosts - Les and Chlarissa and Jules were very welcoming, warm, friendly and full...

We stayed at Villa St. Simon 4 nights in late July to see the Tour de France. We arrived just in time for the nightly wine tasting. The room was very comfortable - - there is no air conditioning, but there are 2 big windows and it stayed reasonably cool. The big added-value is the host Les and his manager,...

Villa St Simon is a great place to stay with hosts with the most. The building is charming and the rooms are likewise. Les, Jules and Clarissa were most helpful. On our first night after being picked up at the airport we were invited to play boules - with food and wine - over in the Park. It was a...

Once in a lifetime you will tumble over a jewel so precious that you do not want to share it with others. However, this is a jewel that must be shared. Not because I want to. If it was up to me, I would keep it to myself and enjoy its beauty as often as I could. But in respect...

We stayed here on 17 June and consider ourselves very lucky to have found such a wonderful, comfortable and friendly place to stop over, that also accepts dogs. We would recommend St Simon to all our friends and hope tostay there again in the future. A special thank you to "B", as the title says "Staff make all the difference".
