This was just an amazing place. Accommodation was excellent, fantastic hosts and just the perfect place to relax. Vanessa and Justin are so welcoming and the 4 course meal they served was excellent so would highly recommend that option. We loved the honesty bar and coffee/tea/nibbles available at all times. Room/ensuite was fab and great size. Lots of places to... More

A truly wonderful find. Peaceful, tranquil and amazing views over vineyards. Our hosts Vanessa and Justin could not have been more accommodating and their knowledge of the wines and surrounding areas and places to visit were second to none. It made for an absolutely chilled and relaxing break that was well needed. We stayed in two rooms, the first upstairs,... More

We had a lovely stay at L'Autre Vie, Justin and Vanessa were warm and helpful hosts and the hotel/grounds were perfect for a relaxing break. The rooms were beautifully appointed, comfortable and spacious. It's a perfect spot to sit back with a glass of wine and a good book. The honesty system in the bar was fun and wines were... More

We have just experienced a fantastic week about 60 kms from Bordeaux. L'autre vie is a gem! The hosts were exceptional and the setting stunning. Set amongst the vineyards, L'autre vie is the perfect getaway. Unfortunately, our stay was far too short. The rooms, food and fantastic array of wines were all sensational. This is tranquility personified. This is an... More

We stayed here for four nights and really loved the chilled atmosphere. Justin and Vanessa are great - very accommodating without being intrusive and offer lots of great advice to help you make the most of your stay in the area. The evening we arrived was after a long car journey, we were pretty tired and did not feel like... More

We stayed in the B&B for one week and still it might have lasted longer! The room was perfect (we even had our own dressing room), breakfast was more than enough, the environment is so beautiful! And I have not even mentioned the wonderfull hosts, who are always prepared to answer your questions.

We stayed for four nights as part of a trip to check out the wines of Bordeaux and were really pleased to have found this place. It's quite small (only a handful of rooms) with modern decor in decent sized double bedrooms. The accommodation is relatively simple and uncluttered. On its own it's a perfect stopping off point for exploring... More

L'Autre Vie is a wonderful charming boutique bed and breakfast near Bordeaux, St. Emilion and hundreds of chateaux. The location in the middle of vineyards is just like a movie setting. Vanessa and Justin (originally from Australia) are the most welcoming innkeepers and helpful in every way. They recommended restaurants and chateaux to visit and even made appointments for us....
