What an amazing find! My husband and I stayed for one night but will be certainly be returning. We were greeted by the very friendly owner who showed us round. We were given a choice of rooms based on what type of mattress we preferred. Our room was stunning and extremely large. It was lovely to sit out on the balcony with the gorgeous views before heading out for our evening meal. The hotel is packed with period feature and is exceptionally clean. Breakfast in the morning was very tasty and plentiful and accompanied by beautiful music. We were worried about staying in a hotel with COVID but everything was safe and distanced whilst not losing any charm.
This was the grand home of a lord and is now the grand home of any traveler who is wise enough to visit this small town, so perfectly preserved in its stunning medieval perfection. The logis sits on the side of the hill above the town and its large gardens are attached to the public gardens, including the well maintained medieval garden. It's just steps down the hill to the old town and just a short walk to the new town above where, if you are lucky enough to be there on a Wednesday morning, you can find the small but wonderful market. Our room had a door to the flower filled garden. Wonderful. The room across the hall is huge and suitable for a family. The hosts of this BnB are extremely kind and welcoming. Parking is free and easy, on the street next to the Logis.
This was a beautiful, slightly quirky old building in a small street, with a lovely garden overlooking the medieval old town of Parthenay. The proprietors were welcoming and helpful; the room we were in was comfortable and clean; the breakfast, shared with other guests, was generous. What is there not to like about this Chambres d'Hotes? Parking was on the street, perhaps the only drawback, but it was not exactly busy. The town itself is well worth visiting, the medieval part is outstanding. The market was on the morning of the day we left, which we made full use of!
Stayed here one night after a very hot day's cycling. The cool, high-ceilinged room with tea-making facilities was a real oasis. Yvan is a welcoming and informative host. And he cycles himself which was very useful when we discoverd a flat tyre just before we left in the morning. The garden overlooking the old town was great for relaxing. Excellent breakfast in the morning, complete with discussion on French and UK politics, set us up for the day. Highly recommended.
I stayed here 1 night when passing through on a cycle tour. Yvan the owner could not have been more helpful. He kept my bike in secure storage and after breakfast the next morning he gave me enough food to last me all day on my bike. The room is very characterful with high ceiling and 4 poster bed. There's a lovely walled garden overlooking the rooftops. Plenty of nice places to eat nearby also. I would highly recommend this to passing travellers.
