Château Lamothe du Prince Noir Review

Magically set on a circular moat, fitted out with a storybook turret, and covered in an ambuscade of ivy, this manor house is one of the most charming options to be found between St-Émilion and Bordeaux—it's also one of the oldest estates: Edward, Prince of Wales (aka the "Black Prince"), reputedly set up shop here in the 14th century. The spacious guest rooms are in styles ranging from Empire to 19th-century romantic, with large four-poster beds and, in most cases, elaborate accents (like gilded feet tubs).
