About the manor
The Bee Inn is located in the former village bakery of rural Néac, in the heart of the Pomerol vineyards. The monumental oven and chimney still exist in the large kitchen of the house. The building was purchased in 2018 by Bordeaux Wine Projects, an initiative of Erik Wuite and Fu Shen, as a base for their activities in the Bordeaux. The vineyards of Pomerol and Saint Émilion surround the manor. The neighbours have some nice bottles of wine for sale, and as we like to be part of the local community, just call in and the owner will gladly let you taste his produce.
The Inn easily accommodates approximately ten people for meetings and relaxation. The Bee Inn has six compact but comfortable bedrooms, four of which have twin beds one of which is equipped with extra long beds of 210 cm, one room has a queen size double bed and there is one single room so the total occupancy could even be eleven. Each room has an en-suite bathroom with (rain) shower, washbasin and toilet. The rooms are equipped with ceiling fans, USB charging points and mosquito nets. If you wish to use the Bee Inn for more than ten people or you have a few of single occupancies, we can book additional rooms with one of our neighbours, reachable within walking distance through the vineyards.
The entire house was thoroughly renovated and refurbished in the first half of 2019. All rooms and bathrooms are new. On the ground floor of the manor you will find a spacious kitchen where even a professional chef can do his or her work. We are happy to arrange it for you. There is also a spacious dining room as well as a lounge/relaxation room with fireplace. Next to the kitchen our beautiful wine experience room will be opened soon; a space entirely in the style of a winery where wine tasting and other wine experiences can be organized as desired. The house has a private pool and a large garden.
On the first floor is The Bee Hive: a well-equipped, climate controlled meeting room with all necessary meeting facilities, including a large television screen for your presentations. The layout of the room is flexible to suit your needs. A boardroom layout for example allows 15 people to exchange ideas comfortably. Break out possibilities are plentiful: from the sitting room to the dining room and the garden, and why not meet in the wine experience room where in addition to tasting wines from our partners, you can have a good meeting and perhaps stroll into the garden. And The Bee Inn has great wifi.
