"Attention to Service and Detail". We originally reserved a room at Chateau St. Pierre De Serjac in June 2021; due to CV-19 we had to re-schedule to September. No regrets, as it was wine harvest period. when we arrived. We came for some golf and relaxation. Ingrid met us and without delay we were shown to our villa, which was immaculate, from the heated private pool, to the comfort of the mattress. Every aspect of our visit reflected attention to detail, not to speak of service, which was also excellent - from the reception to the meals (dinner and breakfast). We had the choice of breakfast in the villa or in the restaurant - both are ideal, depending on your choice. There is also a large outdoor heated pool, great for swimming laps. Our friends also mentioned that the spa was excellent - having received an exceptionally relaxing massage. It is rare that I give five stars; however, in this case, five stars are representative of the service, facilities, food and location - in the middle chardonnay, muscat, pinot noir ... wine fields all around the chateau. In summary, a diamond in the rough! There is also a very nice golf course (Saint Thomas Golf) about 30 minutes away. We found this to be a nearly perfect combination (not perfect, due to my golf performance :-( of the day. Post note: If you do not want to eat all meals at the chateau, there is a very pleasant small restaurant (Cap et Mestra) in Puissalicon within 5min with a car. Thanks again to Ingrid and the team for a very pleasant stay.

Absolutely loved our stay here. The chateau is in perfect condition, and very well-kept. The rooms are large, and the service is excellent. Restaurant, spa, pool & tennis court etc. also super. We'll be returning.

Caerleon Roman Amphitheatre

Built around AD 90 to entertain the legionaries stationed at the fort of Caerleon (Isca), the impressive amphitheatre was the Roman equivalent of today’s multiplex cinema. Wooden benches provided seating for up to 6,000 spectators, who would gather to watch bloodthirsty displays featuring gladiatorial combat and exotic wild animals.

Long after the Romans left, the amphitheatre took on a new life in Arthurian legend. Geoffrey of Monmouth, the somewhat imaginative 12th-century scholar, wrote in his History of the Kings of Britain that Arthur was crowned in Caerleon and that the ruined amphitheatre was actually the remains of King Arthur’s Round Table.

Today it is the most complete Roman amphitheatre in Britain.
