Relaxing place in the middle of nowhere, top service, the cheapest room that we had was both beautiful and confortable. The dinner was an experience in itself - all six dishes were exceptional!
Don't forget to ask for full hot breakfast, which is included. In our case the waiter proposed bread, croissants, preserves, yogourt and tea/coffee without offering anything else, so we thought they did not have any eggs or cheese, the place is remote, but as it happens they do, but you have to ask.
Unfortunately, no shower curtain. And do not take "house" champagne for aperitif by the glass - it's average, expensive and was served almost warm. For the same price they have Billecart-Salmon by the glass on the wine list, I wonder why we have not been offered it.
The place is not cheap, but worth the money. Overall, it is highly recommended. The little negatives have not spoiled the experience. The food is amazing, I have to say it again.
Quiet, discreet, elegant, small establishment. Located in the 'outback' of France, this is the place to come if you're looking for pleasant hikes, fascinating medieval cathedrals and no crowds (and no tourist scourge). Dinner comes with the rate, and its because there really isn't a restaurant scene anywhere nearby (which was terrific by us). Food was delicious, wine list a bit limited but fine. We started with Gin and Tonics in the garden, then sauntered into the dining room around 7:30 each evening (we're American early eaters). Service was impeccable and not intrusive. Among the best Relais & Chateaux we've ever stayed in.
The location is incredible, a unique setting being in the middle of this idyllic village. The room was so cute, it was essentially a whole house. Charming, beautifully decorated.
Staff were helpful and friendly, very at tentative and a real family feeling.
Food was good but not great. Was going to mark the property down for this one reason, but kept it at 5 stars as they are deserved.
However, we look forward to returning soon. Worth a detour, highly rated
Outstanding surroundings and outstanding idea as regards to renovating a small village into a luxury 5 stars hotel - the houses are actually the rooms-.
Outstanding welcome as well from the owner, who makes you feel like being good and close friends meeting up again – the handling of guest is smart and warm, with a great sense of humor – Overall, the entire staff falls into that pattern – it’s really unexpected to find such quality staff in such a remote area, simple, friendly and true. Absolutely excellent in this respect.
Rooms are really outstanding, it’s full of great ideas, and really creative – not the same decoration magazine over and over again, I certainly will remember this place! Top of this, it’s amazingly peaceful and quiet, very relaxing.
Excellent restaurant, very nicely decorated, and special congratulations for the lounge, which is warm and authentic.
Spa is a bit restricted, though; massage (subcontracted) is just below fair, to my view – the only thing I did not enjoy during my stay –
Lovely stay at Les Deux Abbesses, an enchanting place for a couple to spend some quality time and visit the gorgeous region. Our little house was very nice, clean and comfortable; a perfect "nid d'amour". Food was excellent although the chef should improve on the risotto, as it was definetly overcooked. Service was great and we felt the staff really cared about us. The ambiance was kind of magic although sometimes we thought the attitude of the hostess could have been a bit nicer. All in all, we were not disappointed: our stay was almost perfect and we'll gladly return soon!
