We had the Templar Suite which was a huge room renovated beautifully, in keeping with the era. Modern bathroom, sympathetic to the medieval theme. We even had arrow slits in the room! This was the accommodation highlight of our trip through France. Highly recommended. Lovely opening the doors to your room onto the little terrace where you can have breakfast, overlooking the lovely little valley. I just wished we were able to have stayed longer. They also have a pool with a view too. Sigh. Wish I was back there. And a fantastic price at 80Euro/night. Breakfast was lovely sitting on the terrace, however the croissants were slightly stale. The rest of the breakfast was lovely. The templar suite is next to the kitchen which didn't bother us at all. We didn't hear them getting the breakfast ready at all. We did have a little bit of trouble finding the place (however, we didn't ask for directions beforehand, we just stuck the address into the GPS). We asked a couple on a farm nearby (who didn't speak any english, and we didn't speak any french, and they were so patient and lovely to us) who knew where it was, and even drove us there (well, we followed them in their car). So perhaps clarify directions before arriving. There was I believe, signs, however our GPS took us the backwater way (not just here, but throughout France, which made for an interesting trip!), not along the main roads. But WOW. I am so thrilled we found this accommodation. Oh, also, room was very clean and the bed was comfortable.
