We visited as pilgrims on the St Jacques de Compostello pilgrimage and felt very well cared for. Our hosts were delightful and helpful. Our meals were outstanding. The restaurant features specialties from the region and does a great job.

A very fine place to stay with warm hosts who gave us the feeling of a warm home. Clean rooms, good honest food with a good selection of local wines and fine tips for traveling around. The hosts are always open for fun and loving and a good conversation.

We had a lovely meal at this Auberge. The owner, Alex, was incredibly friendly and shared information about the area. The menu choices were varied and there is something for everyone. The prix fixe is great value too. The onion tart was really good (like a quiche). The salmon was delicious and others thoroughly enjoyed the cassoulet and the quail stuffed with foix gras. Desserts were also delicious. The servers were extremely kind, friendly and helpful. There is a good wine selection too. I would call ahead to make a reservation.

Traditionally rustic, great character, spacious room, basic but clean and comfortable everything you would need, any more and you just have to ask. Very friendly and generous hosts. Evening meal and breakfast were delicious. great family atmosphere. Wonderfully peaceful. Not for those wanting glitz or glamour. Very good value will definitely stay again when able to.

We had the pleasure of spending 3 nights at Balestie. It is located on a very peaceful hill surrounded by fields and pastures. Our hosts, Alex and Rachel welcomed us and provided lots of information about things to do in the area. The location is perfect for seeing small villages as well as lovely Mirepoix. We enjoyed breakfasts that featured croissants and delicious bread from a local bakery. Evening meals are offered. We found them to be delicious and the use of local ingredients particularly added to the enjoyment of the meal. They graciously prepared a vegetarian meal at our request. The rooms are clean and have nice linens and comfortable beds. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return when we are in the area again.
