L'Hostellerie de Plaisance


An exceptional village

The medieval village of Saint-Emilion (12th and 14th centuries) is now listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. At its summit, the Hostellerie de Plaisance has stood for centuries - first as a monastery, a hospice, and a post house, before being renovated as an open-air dance hall (guinguette) and hotel in the 19th century.

A hotel of unimaginable charm

In 2001, Chantal and Gérard Perse, owners of the prestigious Château Pavie vineyard and other magnificent châteaux in Saint-Emilion, fell in love with the house and took up the challenge of turning it into a truly luxurious hotel of incomparable character.

Totally transformed during the winter of 2006 by the French decorator Alberto Pinto, the Hostellerie de Plaisance has retained the magic of its original charm and found a touch of modernity along the way. The latest creation is the opening of the Maison Cales, linked to Plaisance by a hanging garden. Built on a terrace above a surprising monolithic cathedral, the Hostellerie de Plaisance overlooks the village.

It affords a panoramic view over the roofs and the winding, cobblestoned medieval streets so steeped in history. As well as a warm welcome and excellent hospitality, guests are promised all the charm, comfort, and service of a contemporary Relais & Châteaux in age-old surroundings.
