“Wonderful & Fantastic!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2014

Vincent & Coco are wonderful people - blended with beautiful rooms to stay and relax in and a beautiful village to explore not only have we enjoyed our two stays whilst planning our wedding in France they have been invaluable in helping us to understand a source local knowledge and culture!

It's all-too-easy to notice when a B&B delivers sub-par service and amenities. But when everything goes perfectly, as it does at Les Chambres de Coco, you may not realize it until you have savored the experience for a few days or longer. So many winning combinations then become apparent: Coco and Vincent are proprietors who exemplify the best blend of broad-ranging English savvy and authentic French charm. Their establishment's ambience exudes a rare combination of luxury and informality, balanced sensitively for guests wanting a bit of each. Their demeanor as hosts offers a subtle blend of respect for guests' privacy combined with eagerness to share their prodigious knowledge of this lovely part of France; all you have to do is be interested, and ask. The amenities at Les Chambres de Coco check every box: spacious. comfortable, quiet rooms scaled to suit; luscious breakfasts served in a great room filled with whimsical and colorful antiques that reflect Coco's earlier professional life as a highly-regarded antiques expert and dealer; public spaces that invite relaxation, reflection, or a game of billards at a wonderful antique table that bespeaks Vincent's seasoned expertise as a collector. Les Chambres de Coco's location is dead-on perfect: close to everything that matters in this part of the Dordogne, near enough to Bordeaux to visit for a day or more, minutes from the highly regarded village of Aubeterre, and within reach of much of the glorious contryside for which the Southwest of France is so deservedly famous.

My two stays at Les Chambres de Coco, once solo and once with my wife, were in the shoulder-season months for private business trips with a dose of leisure time, so we were not able to enjoy the pool with its spectacular vistas from poolside. Our loss, for sure.

One added bonus at Les Chambres de Coco: you may be lucky enough to meet Bob. With his French canine sensibilities, he wlll prefer if you pronouce his name in proper French. (Look it up.) Scratch behind his ears and invite his attention, and you will be rewarded with an affectionate and playful response that--even for guests who might not be dog-lovers--will serve as a capstone of your Les Chambres de Coco experience.

We stayed in this fantastic place for 3 lovely days for a wedding we attended in nearby St Privat. It really is beautiful with the most welcoming hosts you could ask for. Vincent and Coco really go out of their way to make you feel welcome and Coco even looked after our dog for the day we were at the wedding. Above and beyond in every sense. Everything about this place is faultless and we will definitely return and would recommend to anyone. If you are in the area this is the only place to stay!! Our room was a suite room with lovely bedroom overlooking pool and countryside. The bathrooms are beautiful and big with lovely toiletries and big fluffy towels. Breakfast in either the dining room around a gorgeous big table or outside weather permitting. A great find in a stunningly beautiful part of France, most definitely worth a visit.

Room Tip: We had Cerise which is beautiful

Wherever we stay, passing through on business as we do, quality and comfort and peace and quiet are particularly important to us. So we were delighted to be welcomed in and not fussed over unnecessarily. We knew our hosts were close-by if we needed them. Great facilities and a great breakfast. Good value all round. Thank you.

We've stayed in a lot of Chambre D'hotes in France and I can say without reservation that this is the best we've ever found. The rooms are without fault - spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished with every comfort thought of, from the HUGE, supremely comfortable bed and the sumptuous wetroom, to the ipod docking station and the thoughtful little cakes that appear in your room each day. Best of all though, is the welcome from the wonderful hosts, Vincent and Coco (not forgetting the very well behaved Bob the dog....) - we were made to feel like one of the family, with nothing too much trouble, including the preparation of an 'emergency platter' of cheese, bread and pate one evening when we were too tired to venture out to eat at one of the many excellent local restaurants. We celebrated my birthday while we were there and our delicious breakfast that morning included a card and jar of Coco's own preserved cherries and a beautiful flower from the garden - so thoughtful. Vincents dry, Lancashire humour is the perfect foil to Coco's effervescent, enthusiastic and bubbly personality - we just loved them both! We will definitely be back......

We stayed for just 1 night whilst visiting a chef that we were booking for our forthcoming wedding. Yes it was a short stay but we had a lovely time!! Vincent and Coco were delightful hosts. Breakfast was excellent, just what we needed before heading off for the day. The house, grounds and the lovely Bob meant we would have absolutely loved to stay longer!

No doubt we'll be back after the wedding next year and you can be sure that if i had to recommend somewhere, it would be here! (in fact i've just enquired about availability for my mother-in-law to be!).

Pretty perfect all in all.
