Just went here for lunch (Plat du jour) - really super, so we went back the next week and were equally pleased. Friendly service, very pleasant dining room and great value. We thoroughly recommend it. You will probably need to speak a little French!
We turned up on a Friday afternoon, hot and tired. When we arrived there was some initial confusion, then it appeared we had arrived on the wrong day. The hotel was full. As we sat trying to figure out what to do the family who owned the hotel were on the phone - within half-an-hour they had freed up two rooms for six of us! The stay was a joy. Clean and tidy rooms and a wonderful, welcoming restaurant. The food was excellent, the final bill very reasonable and every moment a pleasure. This is the sort of place that really respects it's clients and where a proprietor who is really proud of his business works hard to look after you. I can't recommend it highly enough.
Unbelievably helpful and friendly couple greet you. The rooms are beautifully, clean and comfortable and the setting unreal ( on the first morning of our stay a bride and groom turned up with three photographer for their wedding photos, the owners had given permission to use their grounds) that is how beautiful this place is!!! Strongly advise for a chilled relaxing stay. The only noise you hear is the wildlife frogs from the pond (more like a lake), the birds singing but definitely no noise pollution. The weather was glorious, the swimming pool large with adequate sun beds. Best of all the home made jams were delicious on the local brioche at breakfast time, crusty rustic French baguette and croissant also and must for a great continental first meal.
We stayed here en route to South West France. Our room was not in the main building and was a "disabled" room - which we had requested - but was perfectly adequate with a small, but very nice, secluded patio accessed from the double doors in our room. The weather was hot and the fact that we could lower the shutters and still keep the windows open meant that we could get a good night's sleep in spite of the heat. The Restaurant is very pretty and the food is excellent. We would not hesitate to stay there again if we were in the area. However, in spite of the limited directions within the town it is not that easy to find and is, in fact, outside the centre of the town in a very quiet location.
We were travelling up the western side of France, from Cognac to Brittany via the Vendee area and were looking for somewhere for an overnight stop that was quiet and relaxing. We found this hotel via an Internet search and although there were no previous reviews on this web site we felt that as it was a Logis registered hotel it was likely to to be fairly good. The hotel is located down at the end of a country lane - there is no noise at night except for the odd cow or other farm animal. The hotel being surrounded by fields and the stream. On arrival we were very pleasantly surprised that the standard of accommodation and reception were very good and the prices very reasonable. We ate a extremely good value and pleasant evening meal, that included lots of local produce and fish. The buildings are a mixture of converted water mill and modern extension with rooms in both parts. The mill stream still flows next to the main building. The conversion was obviously completed a few years ago to a high standard and the overall impression is of good quality, clean and reasonable value hotel that would be a good base for touring the area or as a stop over as we did. Thoroughly recommend to anyone.…
