Make sure to take a trip to this area of France next to Bordeaux, especially if you are a wine aficionado. Set amongst outstanding vineyards, this B&B caters to clients for an outstanding experience. Clarissa and Les are most personable and relaxing company, they truly make you welcome and at home away from home. Assuring everything is top notch from the historic rooms to the honor wine bar to the excursions, they provide a relaxing and enjoyable time free from worry. A true get away! Thomas gave us the ultimate excursion on the Medoc wine tour with tons of information in the Medoc region. Les also spent the evenings imparting his knowledge and sharing more information on French wine.The art is spectacular and makes the ambience more inviting thanks to Clarissa (and Cornelius). The ongoing work lends a very quaint atmosphere to a well loved business that really is a home. There are good attractions nearby with the Citadel and comforting old France buildings in town. We felt free of the tourism and in a home away from home. A separate write up is deserved for their restaurant La Galerie. Overall our only regret is that we live in USA or we would be spending many more fantastic stays and taking wine classes at Villa St. Simon. The warmth and genuine nature of our hosts is a definite reason to stay or visit. France is large, but we will be sure to include this in any future stays. Thank you for an awesome, fabulous time:) Sorry it took so long for us to write, but I bet there are many more adventures waiting for everyone.
