About Villa Saint Émilion
Few holiday villas can claim hand-on-heart to lie within Saint-Émilion. This handsome, ivy-hugged property is an exception. Enclosed in a private garden, Villa Saint Émilion sits just a cork-pop away from the village ramparts and vaunted vineyards.
The villa allows you to soak up the scenery at every turn. Its five spacious bedrooms – all en-suite and air-conditioned – feature large windows framing views over the private gardens, village, or old-growth vineyards.
Built in the 19th century, the property has been fully renovated. Interior spaces are light, uncluttered, and decorated in muted tones. Modernity meets rusticity in the choice of furnishings, with bare wood and wicker furniture befitting the farmhouse style. There is an inviting living room, as well as a study – both featuring open fireplaces. The kitchen is open-plan, with a three-oven Lacanche cooker, full suite of tableware and all mod cons. The adjacent dining room, meanwhile, features an extendable table which seats up to 12 people, and leads directly onto an outdoor terrace with pergola.
In the 2,500-square-metre garden, you’re spoilt for spots in which to unwind, wine or dine. Rustle up something delicious in the outdoor summer kitchen, which boasts a plancha-style barbecue. Lounge by the large, heated saline swimming pool. Clink drinks under the shady pergolas, or play croquet on the manicured lawn.
On your doorstep, you’ll find all the charms of UNESCO-listed Saint-Émilion – the cobblestone paths, the iconic church, the wine shops and the restaurants. You are also surrounded by celebrated, classified-growth wineries. Where better than this for a luxury villa holiday in Saint-Émilion?
