Château Lamothe du Prince Noir

6 rte. du Stade, 25 km (16 miles) west of St-Émilion, 20 km (12 miles) northeast of Bordeaux, St-Sulpice-et-Cameyrac, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, 33450, France

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 have been recently redone and range in styles from Empire to 19th-century romantic.
