Mieke and I wrote this on september 3rd 2007:
The trick is simple : spot your favourite area in beautiful France, and look for English hosts! In Beau-séjour we found the magic mix of British hospitality and the enchanting area of St Emilion.
The acceuil is chaleureux ('would you like a cup of tea?'), the room is four times the size of an average hotelroom, the food is as deliious as the wines, but all that faints in comparaison to the warm welcome by Maureen and Jon.
We arrived as royal guests (could you mail if there is anyting Mieke or you don't eat? ...), and left as friends.
We'll tell all our friends, and will come back, to these two wonderful people, that will do anyting to have your stay as pleasant as possible.
We went back in july 2011: Beauséjour revisited.
Nothing changed, but like a great Bordeaux, they get even better every year.
Six stars, we would be happy to be able to give this score!

We returned in May for another wonderful visit to this most unique charming french house and a very warm welcome from Maureen and Jon, who we now consider to be our friends. It is a privilage to stay in such a beautifully restored house with a truly relaxing atmosphere. Maureen's cooking using locally sourced produce is a real treat, we had three very convivial evenings sharing food, wine and chatter with Jon, Maureen and their other guests - unforgettable! We consider ourselves to be quite discerning guests and can honestly say this is the best accomodation we have enjoyed in all our travels.
We have already booked a return visit for 2012

Room Tip: All rooms are equally lovely.

My wife and I found this place via internet and it is everything they say it is and more. It is settled in a quaint french village. The place is stunning and "spot on" in British terms.
Jon and Maurine are excellent hosts making you feel very welcome and at home. We enjoyed their humor as they both gave us their "most see" places in the area. Don't miss the meals they provide. You will make great friends while at the same time enjoying a gastronomical feast.

IN addition the breakfasts are over the top and more than we could eat every day.
When in France make this a destination on your itinerary.

Room Tip: The Cottage would be a perfect "honeymoon" stay

This was the first guest house I have stayed in. I had my reservations as I like and value my own space. The Beau Sejour was very welcoming with such a warm ambiance we were happy to join the other guests for dinner, which was a real home cooked treat. The cheese biscuits are TO DIE FOR. I am Lucky to have obtained the recipe from the lady of the house but you'll have to go there and get it yourself!!

Beau Sejour deserves all the accolades that it has received and so much more. We stayed here with a group of friends over four days and all fell in love with the beautiful couple that run this stunning French guest house. They have clearly thought of every detail to provide a service that does so much more than tick all the boxes.

The house itself is rustic with well thought of touches everywhere. Its absolutely huge and we felt very free roaming around even though it was a full house. Our room was the largest I have ever stayed at and had all the comforts that you would expect as well as being so clean and well maintained.

We arrived at the house rather late (11pm) and were lead into the spacious dinning room where Maureen’s home made pate, crusty bread (toasted by John), local cheeses and a few bottles of wine had been laid out for us.

The breakfasts were delicious and varied from day to day, including smoked salmon, hams, local cheeses and various cooked fruits and muesli. Who knew that prunes could taste so good!

Maureen’s dinner (by request) was incredible. It was such a treat to be able to experience something so much more intimate than only dining in restaurants during our visit. A special thanks to Maureen for catering for one of our friends who was on a very strict diet. Her cuisine was sumptuous and authentic making dinner at Maureen’s a ‘Must do’.

Their knowledge of the area meant that they were able to provide us with every option of things to do, see and eat. Whether you are planning a short trip or a longer stay I’m sure they will be able to assist you in designing the perfect itinerary.

Maureen and John made every aspect of their service seem seamless. Nothing was ever too much trouble and the quality was faultless.

This couple are not only warm and inviting, making our stay unforgettable but are true professionals in every way. A massive thank you from Brendan, Pascal, Dan, Linsey, Jackie and Lorelle.
