“Fabulous Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2011

The relais is located in a beautiful setting and is surrounded by Cognac vineyards as far as the eye can see. The scenery is somewhat reminiscent of Tuscany. The relais is a beautifully restored stagecoach post and the rooms are impeccably and tastefully decorated. It is ideally located for exploring the Charente region.
The hostess/owner is extremely pleasant, very helpful with suggestions for exploring the area and very accommodating if one were to have the dinner at the relais. Basically she prepares the same meal for everyone and will try to accommodate particular eating habits which the guests may have. The facility also has a beautiful outdoor swimming pool which unfortunately we could not enjoy due to the weather. I recommend it highly.

We spent just one night at Le Relais de Saint Preuil and wished we had had more time. The pool, tennis court and overall environment are wonderful. The setting is lovely and the warmth and welcoming nature of our host, Christine was not only comforting, it was extremely professional. The family suite is ample and clean. And, the breakfast is wonderful! Home baked breads and cakes, great coffee and teas and an array of fruits, cereals, and cheese kept us going for the day!
We had a very nice home cooked meal (along with cognac tasting and education). If staying one night I might venture out into local villages for a meal; if staying several, it is def. worth having Christine's home cooking...straight from the pool to dining under the stars.

This is a really unique experience. The rooms are fabulous, and the setting is gorgeous. But the dinner is the experience. Christine cooks everything herself, using local produce, and serving local drinks. You all eat the same thing at the same time, there is no menu (although Christine checks for likes / dislikes / allergies / etc beforehand), and everyone ends up chatting together. The only down side is it takes a while for everyone to be served, but it's worth the wait. And breakfast is just as good. She's a great cook!

Room Tip: The four poster bed is as comfortable as they come

What a find, tucked away between forest and vineyards the perfect spot for a quiet relaxing time with everything you need on site. Great base for touring the Cognac region. English speaking proprietor who is very attentive (occasionally just a little too attentive) and who makes all the croissants, jams etc.
We stayed with 7 other couples during a car tour and we all thought it was one of the best places we had visited.

I don't want to say too much about this place because I want to keep it for myself! Awesome! Very friendly hosts for whom nothing was too much trouble but left you in peace to enjoy their beautiful and historic Relais.

We went for a week with our 2 young children ( 8mths and 3yrs) and had a lovely time.
The apartment 'Le Phaeton' we stayed in was very comfortable, spacious and well-equipped and beautifully cool when the weather got scorchingly hot outside.
The kids loved the pool complete with lots of inflatables and the little playground area, and we went for walks through the vineyards and woods nearby, and the sauna was a bonus.
Service was great - Christine and her husband were fantastic hosts, and gave us plenty of tips to explore the surrounding area and it's delicacies, and the table d'hote dinner is superb. Would definitely go back!

What a wonderful place to stay with excellent accommodation and really friendly owners. Christine is anxious to please and is always attentive. The meals, both evening 'tasting' diner and also breakfast were of the highest quality with most of the food being prepared and excellently cooked by Christine.
The Relais is positioned in the middle of the highest quality growing region for Cognac (Grand Champagne) and is thus a perfect base for exploring Cognac town and the local producers. The converted farm building have been completed to a very high standard and the accommodation is excellent. We would recommend the Relais de St. Preuil to anyone.
