When entering petit bersac into the gps it took a while before it centered outside the hamlet of Petit Bersac. We knew what we were in for, a nice hideaway on our road trip, good restaurant and charm, for us it was the perfect place to unwind on the way to our finish line in St Emillion. The pool was lovely if a little on the chilly side. We had a huge room on the top floor overlooking the garden. Another nice touch were the bikes free of charge, although there is not much to bike to in the immediate area. The approach through the immense gate is impressive, the look of the chateau is a little different from most in the area. This was partly explained by the history of the ownership dating back to Scottish Calvinists in the late 17th century. We stumbled on this place on line when it was briefly mentioned as the hideaway of Francois Mitterand and his mistress, since it was on our route and looked great we took a gamble and booked it. We were not disappointed. The place could use a little help though, but since it only has about ten rooms which I am sure are not always fully booked I can assume that staffing can be difficult. This place could be super exclusive with some investments but for now, is accessible to everyone. Give the Mas de Montet a chance, you'll be glad you did
