Two Americans in Saint Emilion
Posted Sep 22, 2013 on Hotels
Les Logis du Roy is a very charming Bed & Breakfast (B&B). My husband and I had a wonderful time and were very comfortable during our stay. We were in the Magnum, which is the suite closest to the ground level. Every morning we had a basket of bread and pastries and also a little plate of meat & cheese. Nice kitchen with a small refrigerator (dorm size), small stove (two burners), dishwasher and microwave, no oven. It came complete with dishes and utensils. The refrigerator was stocked with milk, a couple of orange juices, eggs, and apple sauces everyday. The cupboards were stocked with coffee, hot chocolate mix & corn flake cereal.
The young man who checked us in was very nice & spoke English well.
The B&B is not too far from the St Emilion train station, about a mile (20-25 min walk). The station does not have a ticket window to buy tickets or a machine to buy or print tickets, so arrive with your return ticket.
There are many wonderful shops, wine tasting rooms and restaurants. Le Bouchon had the most wonderful bacon cheeseburger ever! There are a few chateaus within walking distance, although a good walk. I recommend Chateau Le Chatelet.
Final note, when visiting St Emilion, wear very good shoes! The streets are old cobblestone and a couple of the streets are very steep. One street in particular is so steep it has handrails. It probably has a 45-degree slope!
