Château Franc Mayne is a Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classé, which makes this an interesting place to stay as they offer tours of the cellars to hotel guests. The house itself dates back to the 16th century, and the nine themed rooms offer romantic touches like four poster beds and beamed ceilings, as well as more light hearted themes like ‘Asian mood’ and ‘Pop art’. There is a natural swimming pool in the attractive gardens. A table d’hôte evening meal also offers good-quality food, but book ahead;  Gourmet Platters are on offer to taste alongside the wines of the property.

Useful information: Rooms: €150-€280; breakfast: €15.
