The location, the building, the friendliness of the hosts, the furnishings and the quality of the food all go to make this probably the most rewarding of guest houses. Set in a remote piece of the French countryside, this building is the product of many years of labour by the hosts. Finished to an exquisite standard, you cannot fail to be impressed. Mealtimes offer the unique (in my experience) situation of the hosts cooking the homemade, and excellent food, and joining you for dinner. The history of the building is fascinating and it is no wonder it was a big hit on the Grand Designs Abroad programme with Kevin McLeod. The property is situated in the heart of the French countryside, ideal for walking, and within driving distance of some lovely towns and villages. I will definitely return here.
