Maison des Cordeliers
Though its mellowed stone facade is characteristic of the area, the inside of this substantial Dordogne villa is anything but typical. Half of the interior is one grand space open to the rafters, focused around a monumental two-sided fireplace. Multiple windows let in the light and provide sweeping views of the bucolic fields and vineyards that extend down to the ancient walls of St. Emilion.
Simple lines and quality materials create an elegant yet relaxed setting, ideal for socializing as the party moves fluidly from one stylish living space to the next. Maison des Cordeliers truly offers the best of both worlds: a haven of peace and privacy, yet a location just a few minutes away from one of the most attractive and upscale wine towns in the Bordeaux area.

- The mixture of modern and authentic décor
- The pleasant gardens with ample shade—the perfect spot for catching up on that book you keep meaning to read.
