Le Pavillon Villemaurine on the edge of Saint Emilion is an elegant but casual inn. The inn sits in the middle of a vineyard within 2 or 3 minutes walking to the main street in Saint Emilion. The interior decorating of the common living room and breakfast room is elegant and comforting at the same time. Our room, the Soutard Suite, was a beautiful very large room with fantastic views, a huge bathroom and a separate large shower room (the whole room is the shower!).
The owners Nikki and Julian make every effort to assure their visitors' comfort. Nikki was very clear in all her pre-visit communications with me, including making suggestions for our visit to Saint Emilion. She also prepares the lovely and extensive expanded continental breakfast each morning (she even made breakfast extra early for us the day we needed to leave early to meet our guide). Julian welcomed us with open arms when we arrived, helped us get our car parked in their nice little parking lot, dragged our luggage up to our second floor room (no elevator) and, once we were settled, offered us a glass of his own wine - to help get us in the mood. Julian was also very helpful making suggestions, and reservations, for restaurants. He also arranged a visit for us and one other couple to Chateau Guadet whose wine caves (literally caves) are in town and whose vineyards we overlooked from our bedroom.
Between the elegant but casual feel of the B&B and the welcoming helpful efforts of the host and hostess, we felt that our visit to Saint Emilion was very special.
