La Chartreuse de St Emilion
8 guests · 4 bedrooms · 4 baths
Grapevines twine through trellises and flowering vines climb the wallpaper at this spectacular chateau outside Bordeaux. The estate has all the hallmarks of an aristocratic retreat, from a private 2.5-acre park to gilt-edged mirrors reflecting elegant reception rooms to bedrooms bathed in toile. It’s only 3 minutes from St. Emilion, a medieval village with ancient churches and famed grands crus. Each day of your holiday begins with a delivery of fresh pastries and continues with a chef-prepared lunch and dinner, served by a butler. (In between meals, you can snack on the macarons from your welcome basket.) Watch the sun shift across the vineyards from a lounger on the terrace, then open a bottle of local wine at the al-fresco dining table. Despite its historic cachet, the villa does have a TV, integrated sound system, Wi-Fi, and an elevator. Traditional design lovers will find this vacation rental a nearly 10,000-square-foot piece of heaven in France. Creamy stone and a fanlight welcome you to the villa, and a checkerboard floor and sweeping staircase up the ante in the foyer. The living rooms and dining room are gorgeously wood-paneled, parquet-floored, and floral-wallpapered; the kitchen is fully equipped and fully modern. Each of the four bedrooms at the chateau is a honeymoon-worthy retreat with a king bed, private en-suite bathroom, and a view of the vineyards—as well as the decidedly modern luxury of air conditioning. Together, they can welcome a group of four couples or up to eight family members. The villa may feel like its own world, but it’s only 3 minutes from the heart of St Emilion, where you can marvel at 12th-century churches, climb a bell tower for panoramic views, and of course, sample plenty of local wine. The small city of Libourne makes a great day trip, as does the larger city of Bordeaux.
