La Pinsonniere
Ranked #1 of 3 Vaudelnay B&B and Inns
Reviewed 15 April 2014

The room we stayed in was lovely and if you're just staying without eating I heartily recommend however the food and wine on both days was extremely disappointing , bland , overcooked, lacking in flavour at €35 each not good. I got the impression they were fed up with running the place. The wine was very disappointing it was low sulphite/ organic but very poor quality see my review of "Le Bon gout du Perigord" to see someone who gets it right.
The village is quite dull so it's a problem as there's no other restaurant for a few miles

Thank you for a very enjoyable and comfortable stay. The room was comfortable, well decorated and appointed and set in buildings with just the right balance of restoration and original features.
We had dinner with Pascale and Olivier (and the friendly cats and dog) and it was very relaxed occasion. The food was delicious and the conversation (despite our halting French) interesting and informative.

Pascale and Olivier are the most welcoming of hosts and offer true hospitality to their guests. They have clearly thought about what makes a hotel good - comfortable bed, modern bathrooms and fantastic food and wine! We visited for a wedding in the local area but it would also be perfect to explore the surrounding region. We would definitely recommend it!

We had a lovely overnight stay at La Pinsonniere recently and would heartedly recommend it to others looking for a charming B&B in the area. Our room was gorgeous, beautfully decorated with a well designed modern bathroom and a small children's room up in the eves which our 4 year old thought was magical. The host, Pascale, was very welcoming and accomodating and was charming enough to tolerate my poor french, although her english is really excellent. Breakfast was very rustic. The place is beautiful and peaceful and feels very rural.

We stayed in the Yurt which is available for stays at la Pinsonniere and joined Pascale and Olivier plus other guests in the evening for dinner. The food was fantastic and without question the best French food i have sampled. Pascale and Olivier were warm and generous hosts and the accommodation / surroundings were beautiful. I cannot recommend highly enough and hope to visit again soon!

This gem was a great start and finish of our vacation in France. Pascale and Olivier surprised us and our kids with great food, wines and true hospitality. Highly recommended - especially for foodies.
