Le Relais de Franc Mayne

A guest room at Le Relais de Franc Mayne in Gironde, France

Dating back to the eighteenth century, Le Relais de Franc Mayne has been restored in all the right ways. Its winemaking facilities are state-of-the-art, while the property maintains its character with unique spaces such as an ancient underground stone-clad tunnel that is now used to store wine being aged in oak barrels. Each of the twelve guest rooms is eclectically furnished, following themes that range from Out of Africa to Indian Fusion. But you won't find kitsch here. Instead, the style is refined, making this inn a sanctuary in the midst of its vineyard setting in Southwest France. For relaxation, guests can enjoy hosted tastings of the property's signature Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé, stroll the medieval town of Saint-Emilion or simply laze in the eco-friendly swimming pool.
