“Lovely location and great sitting room”
Reviewed 5 June 2012

This is a lovely spot, quite quiet and a few minutes walk outside of the town itself but the building is very beautiful. For those (like us) who arrive on motorbikes - the road outside is a safe (and level) place to leave the bikes.

We took two rooms on the first floor, my friends taking the bigger 'suite' and us taking the smaller (but perfectly charming) blue room at the rear .......my only advice is not to flush the loo in the middle of the night - it makes a racquet!

The sitting room is lovely and we sat there chatting after returning from the restaurant - unfortunately we didn't realise there were other guests staying - so apologies to the two french chaps who were in the second floor room who we may have disturbed!

Had a great welcome when we arived at L'Etoile Du Port. Our room was on the top floor and looked out over the canel. The place is full of character with evedience of the old Conac warehouse which stood before. The hospitality was as warm as the welcome and we will certainly stay there again when in the area.
Thanks again Suzzie and good luck for the future.

Sue was a great hostess and very helpful. Beds were very comfy and the ability to use a sitting room and small kitchen was a great bonus. Would definitely go back.

Room Tip: We stayed in the suite which was very nice.

We have enjoyed Susie and Gerard's hospitality so much over the past few years and will be back again next year. The stylish yet inpretentious decor compliments the wonderful old building. Each bedroom has it's own particular style and identity. Wonderful bedlinen and much appreciated little touches in the bedrooms. Breakfast overlooks the lake from the stunning baronial like hall. Have only stayed in summer but oh to relax on the sumptuous white sofas when logs are burning in that amazing fireplace. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts and we couldn't resist 'snapping' up 2 of the stunning photographs in the gallery. We cannot recommend L'Etoile du Port more highly and this is echoed by the many family members and friends who have been similarly welcomed.

Fantastic place opposite a river with a lovely park (good for jogging in).
Within walking distance of the local village & shops.

The accomodation was clean with really comfortable beds, douvays & pillows!
Owners (Susie & Gerard) were most friendly & helpful with good knowledge of the local area.

We had a great stay & we'll be back

We stayed at L'Etoile du Port on our way back from Spain to the UK. The location is fabulous and the house is charming and elegant. The owners were very kind and helpful. We will definitely make it a regular stop every time we drive through France. Thank you!
