“A complete and wholeharted stay at Clos de la Barbanne”
Reviewed 1 October 2011

We were welcommed by warmth and friendlyness. Annie and Laurent are living not working at Clos de la Barbanne and this makes the atmosphere very special. The lodging was very good and the dinner fabulous, and it was topped by the wine. It is very special that a "Hotel" with two employees serve homemade dinner, five courses, and serve their own, homemade wine to go with it. This is something we have not experienced before in the Clubs history!

Lying sleepily in the shade, Portos the house cat sets tone of this country retreat.
The beds are truly luxurious and the rooms are much bigger and more elagantly furnished than you would expect from a very posh hotel. As self confessed B&B snobs, and after staying  in five smart hotels and Chambre d'hôte around Bordeaux this week, Clos de la Barbanne is by far and away the best value for money.
As if God's own creation; except it's actually the creation of Laurent and Annie, proud homeowners/house-elves that quietly make you feel unashamedly pampered.
After a swim in their indoor heated pool we found homemade iced pineapple and lemon juices on our bedroom terrace. 
The breakfast of fresh cheese, ham and tomato baked with tarragon, thyme and basil followed by homemade quince jam and apple cake is both inventive and delicious.
Away from the hype and industrial commerciality of St Emillion this is a truer working vineyard that gives insight into the more everyday side of the region's mono-culture. 
Truly remarkable. We will return.

Stayed two days Enid June to begin a tour of Bordeaux area and Dordogne
Laurent and Annie could not be more hospitable - it actually felt more like staying with friends
The dinner which we opted for on Day 1 was spectacular and would have passed muster in a very good French restaurant - but with a homely atmosphere
Room spacious, comfortable bed, large immaculate bathroom and wi fi
Idyllic location among vineyards
The only drawback that it was our first of several stays and the only way was down from here!!

Friends recommended this B&B close to St Emilion and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. We stayed in the Paraschiva suite which was upstairs and more private. It was lovely, spacious and light. Annie and Laurent are warm and gracious hosts and we appreciated their recommendations and reservations for meals and wine-tasting. Annie is an excellent cook and the meals we ate there (3 breakfasts and 2 dinners) rated among the best we had in a 2 week trip to France. Imagine a foie gras and rillette starter followed by a chilled melon soup with smoked bacon and mint, warm oysters with a ginger and marsala dressing, scallops with fusilli pasta, onions, carrots and cream and finally a delicious meringue and almond concoction for dessert!

Being wine lovers there was no way for us come to france without visiting the Bordeaux vineyards.
We choose Clos de la Barbanne for its great location and landscape view, the very goods reviews it had on the net and, most of all, because we wanted to get a real insight of the life in the vineyards.
Truth is, it was a very good pick.
Our room was furnished with great taste, kind of french elegancy but "a la campagne", and I really loved the choice of shampoos and shower gels, very cute.

Laurent and Annie, the owners, are very welcoming, you can tell that they really love their little paradise and that they enjoy sharing it. They recommended an itinerary for us to go on a nice drive through the domaines and which good ones to go visit. They even called contacts and found us a good place for wine tasting.

Laurent showed us his property and told us about "Montagne St Emilion" and its history. Clos de la Barbanne is right in the historical heart of St Emilion, we didn't know before coming so it felt like being in a very special place.
Annie is a great cook, she made us delicious crepes for breakfast and a very special dinner.
We really look forward to coming back soon.
Clos de la Barbanne is as pretty and good as a small hotel but with the homelike feeling.

Room Tip: Call a little in advance.

A discret and stylish place located only 3 km from downtown Saint-Emilion.
We discovered the secret of Concerto, the wine made by Laurent. It's probably the help he gets from the guests staying at the Clos de la Barbanne.

So relaxing throlling through the vineyard, from dawn to dusk, peaking once in a while in the wine cellar...
The cuisine served is delicious. And the rooms are so spacious and nicely furnished.
Just looking forward to our 3rd stay at Clos de la Barbanne.

Room Tip: All rooms are perfect.
