Welcome to

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

Meet Christine and Jean-Luc and enjoy their fully restored Inn near Segonzac

A Charentais hamlet amongst the vines. A personalised discovery of the Cognac region. Welcome to Christine et Jean-Luc Montembault's hotel.

"Introducing our guests to every face of the region they're visiting."

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.

ACCOMMODATION

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.

What our customers say

"Tranquil and friendly"

This was the perfect stay for us, family of five with kids 10,13 and 16 yrs. Spectacular and beautiful family room with old wooden beams in the roof. Christine is a lovely host, caring for us and arranging a nice dinner ”La Doci” in nearby village of Touzac (10 min drive). The pool is lovely and freshly temperatured (not to warm). The breakfast with, among other nice things, the homemade youghurt delightful.
