Opening of a four-star boutique-hotel, Aux Ducs De Sienne, in Montagne near Saint-Emilion
Saint-Emilion’s tourist infrastructure continues to expand
In the old presbytery of the Mountain and its park, a complete renovation program, led by the architecture firm of Charlotte Allard, promises a new and exclusive experience, combining a chic and comfortable atmosphere, a bright, warm decoration in a setting ideal for recharging your batteries, working from a distance, taking a break, and discovering the superb landscapes of this “little Tuscany,” a stone’s throw from Saint-Emilion.
The elegant and understated rooms have retained a slight fragrance of meditation, close to the Church of Saint Martin, a small marvel of Roman art that flanks the light stone building.
A few carefully chosen details are highlighted by the purity of the lines, a kind of luxurious asceticism that helps creativity, contemplation and rest.
The calm of the enclosed park is a joy that the occupants of the rooms with private terraces opening onto the garden will particularly appreciate.
On the first floor, the rooms offer, beyond the walls of the park, a perspective on the vineyards and the valleys as far as the Moulins de Calon.
The adjoining restaurant La Réserve du Presbytère (Bib gourmand, Michelin guide 2021) is a delight for hotel guests for breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Room service is also provided by the restaurant’s kitchen. On request, meals are served on the private terraces!
Chef Jean-François Robert concocts special menus for detox weekends or “telework” weeks.
A fully equipped seminar room is available. It is possible to privatize the hotel and the restaurant for corporate, (seminars, groups) and family events (meals served up to 120 guests).
Hairdressing, manicure, make-up, massages and florist services are available in your room.
The hotel concierge is responsible for helping all guests in a personalized way so that their vacation is unforgettable in this region where there is certainly no shortage of visits and activities! Electric bikes with audio guides are also available.
Last but not least, the hotel shop offers magnificent custom designed leather goods in the colors and logo of the Dukes of Siena.
