I was starting to wonder where the hotel was going to be situated....after being routed off the main road near a retail park and a railway line - not quiet the rural idyll I was expecting.
But, once we reached the equestrian centre and turned into the hotel somehow the noise and rest of the world just melted away.
OK, so the room was pretty basic. But in peak holiday season it was a steal - fantastic value for money. Everything was spotlessly clean and we had a very enjoyable afternoon dipping in and out of the large swimming pool. Just what you need in 30 degree heat.
We only stayed for one night and couldn't be bothered to drive into Ste Foy. So we ate at the hotel. We were totally surprised by the quality of our supper. It was sublime. We have already recommended this little place to friends who live locally - they had never thought to try it. What a gem. This represents excellent value for money for the rooms - the food though is in another class all together. This was local regional cooking at it's best.
We regretted leaving and wish we had been better organised - we would love to have stayed aother few days.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):

It took two years of hard work, with the help of many to renovate the farm into a beautiful guests house. Ever since, Escapade has offered those who stay here privacy and calm in a rural, yet luxurious environment. ... more less
