The Auberge de la Commanderie is ideally located in the heart of the medieval town with a panoramic view of Saint-Emilion’s monuments and vineyards. It offers the peaceful charm of a family-run hotel.

Its warm, cosy atmosphere is filled with memories of travels: pilgrims on their long trek, colourful journeys to far-off lands and crazy adventures. A particular decorative feature in the hotel is the combination of wood and rattan. This wicker furniture calls to mind a different hemisphere in shades of indigo blue. Its presence gives warmth to the bedrooms and lounges and an exotic elegance that makes your stay even more pleasant.

The Auberge de la Commanderie is steeped in history. The annexe of this ancient Templar’s house was even known to be the last hide-out of the Girondins deputies during the French Revolution. It was acquired in 2017 by the de Boüard de Laforest family, who have been the owners of nearby Château Angélus for 8 generations.
