Elegant 19th C former vintner's house, carefully restored and furnished with a range of antiques and objets d'art. The Grenache room was large with a very comfortable bed, shutters opening out on to a shady square in a town that hides its light under a bushel. It looks a bit tired but is full of its own character with historic mediaeval streets. The town is ideally placed for wider exploration as well. We had a well equipped bathroom with a good shower. The house is set in a delightful garden with a small pool. Breakfast is served beneath a "tunnel of leaves", with an excellent choice of breads and home made jams and cake. Pascal and Philippe occasionally offer a table d'hote evening meal at €25 plus wine, which makes for a convivial evening. There is a fridge and microwave in an outhouse for guests' use, which is very helpful. The hosts are very willing to offer useful advice and knowledge about the area and the many interesting sights and sites in the area.

This beautiful home abounds with antiques and treasures collected and cared for by Pascal and Philippe. The rooms are large and beautifully appointed - large and modern bathroom was a treat! Both of our hosts were gracious and accommodating. Pascal enjoys providing a good breakfast complete with his homemade jams. Most enjoyable of all was the time that Pascal spent showing us the house and chatting. A quiet location and one we'd like to return to.

A bit hard to find, but worth the effort, Le Chai de Marguerite is a gem of a Guesthouse/B & B. We entered this lovely home, artfully decorated with beautiful antiques, climbed the marble staircase (our host helped with our luggage) and were shown our very large and very beautiful room. Each piece of furniture, including a giant armoire, was carefully selected and antique treasures graced the shelves and tables. The bathroom was also very spacious and had all modern amenities.

Breakfasts are served outdoors in a garden setting worthy of an impressionist painting! But the real treasures are the owners: Philippe and Pascal, two gentlemen of distinctly different, but entirely gracious, personalities who made our stay the most memorable in our 3 week vacation throughout France!

If you are lucky, they might be willing to prepare a multi-course candlelit dinner (for an additional charge, of course) that will become a highlight of your vacation dining experience.

Chai Margerite est énchanté!

Enjoyed it immensely good location. If pool had been skimmed of debris we would have used it as it was 36 deg when we were there. Fruit needs removing off outside table overnight, spider trails over it. Minor things, we really loved our stay

This is quite simply one of the best, if not the best, chambre d'hôte or hotel we've ever stayed in. We were welcomed into their home as friends by Philippe and Pascal who have created a stylish, comfortable and relaxing place to stay. Our huge room had all kinds of personal touches in the décor, a very comfortable bed and a large modern bathroom. The evening began with apéritifs (and home-cured olives) by the fire with the other guests and this was the start of what seemed like a convivial dinner party with wonderful food, interesting conversation and a great atmosphere around the lamp-lit table. Philippe and Pascal use vegetables from their own garden and eggs from their chickens in their cooking and serve wine from local vignerons.
Breakfast next morning was delicious too, with home-made jams to go with croissants and rustic bread from the village boulangerie. We were reluctant to leave and we'll be going back to see the garden (which has a swimming pool) at its best in the summer.
It's a perfect place for a quiet break - a peaceful location in the village, with no through traffic. Nothing seemed too much trouble for our hosts from arranging a wifi connection to giving us advice about where to buy wine in the area. Although we spoke French all the time we were there, Philippe speaks English too.

Room Tip: Grenache and Carignan rooms are on the first floor.

We have just finished a 4 night stay at this beautiful Maison d'hôte while we were house hunting in the area.

Our room was spacious, tastefully decorated with a large well functioning en suite. Our hosts Pascal & Philippe were very accommodating & the breakfast a great start to the day with good selection. Unfortunately we didn't get to enjoy the vast garden & pool due to the time of year.

We are already looking forward to our next visit. If there is a down side it is that we can't afford a house as beautiful!
