Very friendly owners who could not have been more helpful. The food was delicious and the hotel itself was lovely. Very clean and looked newly decorated. Rooms in Logis hotels are rarely luxurious in my experience but this was clean, comfortable, had everything we needed and was beautifully decorated. The restaurant had a huge log fire which gave a lovely ambience. Would definitely recommend it, and it's not far from the motorways so easy to get to on a trip to southern France

Used this super auberge en route from south of France to Calais whilst doing my best to steer clear of Paris. It's very convenient, being just 15 mins off the motorway in a very pretty and well-kept village. It provides plain, spotless accommodation and an excellent, reasonably priced menu and breakfast (26€ for 3 course dinner and 9.50€ breakfast). Ingredients are high quality and the dining room is comfortable. It's family-run with dad in the kitchen and mum front of house. Both are pleasant and attentive. Only minor negative is wifi which, despite info on how to connect, was unavailable on my stay.

Room Tip: all rooms are non-smoking and French-traditional in style

I recently paid two visits, one on the way out, one back, to this small family-run hotel about 15 miles south of Orleans, handily placed a short way off the A71 motorway in the very centre of the attractive small town of Jouy le Potier. The area opposite the hotel around the church has been landscaped and improved and is now very attractive. Parking is directly opposite the hotel and although it is on the main road through the village, after the evening rush hour the road is very quiet. Jouy is a pretty little town, neat, atmospheric and a pleasant place to wander round for half an hour or so. There is a bakery next door to the hotel so you can stock up for your picnic when you check out.
The hotel itself is small and simple, the rooms, most of which look out onto a small courtyard where, weather permitting you can have your evening aperitif and/or dinner, are small and all slightly different, they are spotlessly clean and have all the facilities you need for an overnight stop. The shower attachments on the bat taps are slightly idiosyncratic, there is no peg to hang the shower head on so you have to hold it all the time which makes two handed jobs like washing your hair a little tricky
The restaurant offers a simple but quite interesting three course menu with three choices for each course. The helpings are on the small side but the full three courses offers quite enough for a meal. The wine list is adequate and reasonably priced with some of local wines. Overall the dinner was well presented, thought had gone into it and a real effort made to provide something above the norm which it broadly succeeded in, although there were one or two minor culinary shortcomings.
Breakfast was fine, the standard French bread croissants and jam and the service friendly, efficient and welcoming throughout.
There is nothing exceptional about the place, the real charm is its essential Frenchness. Everything about it, the building, the location, the service, the food, the staff is quintessentially provincial French and it is worth going there for that alone. That’s why I return often. They are quite happy for you to bring your dog, at no extra charge although the resident cat is less enthusiastic.
A convenient stopover on the way north or south that offers more than just a bed and breakfast, it’s a real start or finale to a holiday in France.

Jouy le Potier is just south of Orleans, a very convenient overnight stop of you are driving down the A71/75 motorway to central southern France or Spain. Far enough off the motorway to be quiet but not requiring a major detour, the Auberge de Potiers is on the main street of the pretty little village immediately opposite the church and next to the Mairie. Parking is available immediately outside. The hotel is a traditional small family-run French provincial hotel, rooms overlook a small courtyard where meals can be taken if the weather suits. The service is friendly and attentive. The rooms are on the small side, simple but with all the essentials (en suite, TV, hairdryer) but as is often the case in France no tea making facilities or fridge and a bath not a shower. However they are spotlessly clean and in excellent order. Fitted into an old building the rooms are interestingly shaped rather than dull boxes. Dogs are welcome except perhaps by the resident cat.
Despite being on the main street, after 6 p.m. the village and rooms are very quiet. Nothing much to do except take a pleasant evening stroll through the village. At the North end of the main street is the town cemetery containing a single war grave that of Sgt Baynes, a WW2 British airman. Make a point of visiting him, he must get lonely among all those Frenchman!
The evening meal is good, three choices each of starter, main and pudding for €26. The pate de campagne was sound rather than special but the cod on a risotto base was excellent. The vegetables stuffed with a lamb mince were unexciting. Puddings very good. Wine list exclusively French wines, as is the French way, and the carafe of local red was very forgettable.
Breakfast was the standard French issue, coffee, bread, croissants, all from the bakery next door and all very good.
If this all sounds a little negative, that is not my intention. The whole is somehow much more than the sum of the parts.
Overall a very pleasant overnight stay in a convenient and atmospheric bit of traditional France. At €68 for the double room and €9.50 each for breakfast, sound value.

Room Tip: All rooms are fine
