We were very fortunate to find this hotel by chance during our travels. The owner/host was absolutely lovely- welcoming, helpful and willing to share knowledge about the wonderful artwork and Jean Lurcat tapestries in the reception areas. Her husband, who is also the owner/chef, produced one of the three, and possibly the best meal we had during 3 months of travel in Europe. The restaurant has a Michelin star rating and it certainly lives up to that. Restaurant staff were also great. Our room was spacious, clean and with a balcony overlooking the beautiful gardens. (Designed and planted by the owners). A chateau is within very easy walking distance and it's a quick drive into St Cere. There are also other lovely villages, caves/grottes and chateaux nearby. We highly recommend this hotel.
