There are plenty of fabulous reviews on our website, but here is a small selection;

"What a little gem this B & B is and Angela the host was brilliant, nothing was any trouble, lovely breakfast, clean and tidy rooms, plenty of water and tea and coffee.  There was lots of fruit and the pool and grounds were especially beautiful.  The area was lovely and quiet and we will hopefully be making another visit to this lovely gem in the future."

"We couldn't have picked a better place.  The rooms were spacious, the breakfast was amazing, the host was super friendly and what we enjoyed the most was the hammock under the tree in the backyard just hanging by the pool.  We hope to stay here again when we visit this part of France again."

"We spent 2 nights in the area for a wedding.  Angela welcomed us very warmly and was very helpful when it came to giving us information about where to eat and tours to do in the area.  Breakfast was rich and hearty, very pleasant."
