Le Relais de Saint-Preuil The Originals Relais

Le Relais de Saint-Preuil The Originals Relais (Relais du Silence)

They call it "their little slice of heaven in Grande Champagne". Christine and Jean-Luc discovered the Hotel Le Relais de Saint-Preuil, The Originals Relais, a little Charentais hamlet near Segonzac, in 2004. A former 17th- and 18th-century coaching inn, it had been abandoned. The couple decided to buy it and restore its original purpose: giving travellers a place to rest and eat. It took a year of renovations to bring the inn back to life. It now comprises ten lodgings spread throughout the hamlet in the form of double rooms, family suites and houses for four to six people. Some have something of an Asian flavour, pointing to the owners' unusual background in Indonesia and Hong Kong. "We wanted to create somewhere with a focus on the art of hospitality," says Christine. A place where guests are invited to enjoy slow travel and take their time while exploring, be it food and drink, heritage or culture.

Rooms

Le Relais de Saint-Preuil, The Originals Relais

The ten lodging names at the Hotel Le Relais de Saint-Preuil, The Originals Relais are all borrowed from former 17th- and 18th-century horse and carriage occupations: Le Cocher (coach driver), Le Postillon (coachman), Le Patachon (driver), La Malle Poste (mail coach), La Calèche (horse-drawn carriage), Le Coche (stagecoach), etc. Furnished in rustic, country, uncluttered style, they're comfortable and very spacious. The apartments or houses are fitted with an open-plan kitchen (dishwasher, washing machine, oven, etc.) with space for six. With its Asian style, the Palanquin room is a little different, featuring a large bed with a 19th-century Chinese canopy in a nod to the years Christine and her husband spent in Asia.
