Beautifully furnished in quiet and tranquil location. Very comfortable beds. Martine was a warm and polite hostess providing a delicious breakfast including home made jams and cakes. Small swimming pool was very welcome after a warm day of travelling! Recommended.

We were looking for a place en route to SW France and we were not disappointed. The owners could not have been more friendly and helpful and the rooms and bathroom were pristine. There are a number of very good restaurants in the near vicinity though in some ways we regretted not taking the offer of local sausages and salad with cheese and wine by the pool. If I have one comment, it might be nice to have a choice of pillows for those who like "soft down" :)) We would certainly recommend this place to both couples and families

I see that most people have liked this place, perhaps we were unfortunate The room was lovely as was the bathroom. The small living eating space was pretty but not very useable except to eat, I usually grade places by sleep quality and the food rather than the decor as if these are wrong then the main purpose of the stay has not been met. The traffic on the road just outside the village kept us awake and then when we came down to breakfast we found it laid out for us which was rather odd as the bagettes had been toasted and were therefore cold and so chewy they were difficult to eat. There was only bread, jam some already sugared strawberries with yoghurt and two pastries. As an answer to my review on Booking.com, through which i had booked, the owner says therewere also cakes she had cooked that morning! As this was the dearest b and b we had booked and the most meager breakfast we were not best pleased. Every where else gave us fruit cheese and ham and boiled eggs for circa 65 euro so I dont think this b and b is good value. Same really as we have family nearby and often need somewhere to stay here. We were also confused as we were told on the internet that there was only this suite available, but when we got there this was the only accomodation unless there was mpre in the owners house which meant we paid more than needed as there were two prices and we paid the most expensive even though we were the only people there that night.

I am sorry that the stay did not please you, you blame breakfast "continental" but you have booked your room and your benefits on "booking" and this is a continental breakfast that is stipulated, so no eggs and sausage ! My guests are usually delighted that I put on the table, pastries, bread, yoghurt and jams "home made", almond cake (made in the morning and that you do not even tasted) a salad of strawberries and melon small local producer, tea "Damman", coffee, milk, orange juice ... more a herbal tea is at your disposal in the room and an espresso machine in the living room and breakfast room. I find your opinion unjust and incomprehensible. D Especially since you chose the cheapest room on Booking (Room "Sauvignon") and I upgraded for free in the deluxe suite "Chardonnay" .... when has the space "dining room that is not comfortable, it is 40m2, and includes a lounge where you can relax and read while drinking a glass of wine, much appreciated in general by my hosts! of course we live in this house, which is quite normal since it is a house of hosts ... .Our village is very quiet, very little traffic and our house does not face the street, so no noise. I do not understand your criticism here either! the night the house is very quiet. For 65 €, next time choose a small hotel, but you do not have the pool or the furnished terraces or part that I offered you for this night ...

What a gem .....perfect in every way. The property is spotless, tasteful and so very French. Loved it. Martine is very friendly and informative. Tempting swimming pool with sun loungers surrounded by manicured lawns. Safe and secure car parking. Breakfast was delicious home made jams and preserves, local melon, fresh orange juice and Nespresso coffee. Little Bistro within walking distance with friendly customers and staff. We have booked again. Well done MERCI
