“Parfait!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2010

My wife and I stayed one night in June at the Jeanne Maison d’Hôtes during a month-long visit in France. It was one of our very best experiences of the trip. We were warmly received by the owners, Brigitte and Pascal Monteil. The hotel is a red stone building with a 15th Century tower that leads up to several bedrooms. Ours was large and comfortable, spotlessly clean and very nicely decorated (as is the whole house). The bathroom was modern and efficient. There was Wifi in the room. The house is in Collonges la Rouge, one of the prettiest villages in France, a red stone wonderland set in a green and bucolic French countryside. We had dinner with Brigitte and Pascal, along with a French couple who were also staying here celebrating an anniversary. It was one of the most memorable evenings of our trip. Pascal is a natural host – interesting, witty and occasionally provocative. Brigitte has all the charm, humor and style that I have come to associate with French women, in addition to being an excellent cook. We had olive tapenade and eggplant dip for appetizers, followed by a mushroom and egg salad (she had picked the mushrooms herself) and then roast duck with mashed celery root. It was incredibly good! We washed it down with rather a lot of Bezet red wine followed by a strange, unlabeled yellow liqueur that Pascal brought up from the cellar and that was as good as it was strong. The other couple spoke no English but we caught some of the French, and Brigitte and Pascal (who speak English well) translated much of the rest. It was an animated evening with non-stop conversation and a lot of laughter, and it seemed like we had been invited into some intimate family celebration. The cost (room, dinner and breakfast) was 160 Euros and it was worth every penny. Thank you Brigitte and Pascal! Next time we'll stay a month.

We stayed in the chimney room which was full of character and included lovely old furniture. There was also the luxury of a separate beautiful modern bathroom and toilet.
The room has two access doors, one via the 15th century tower and the other via a door opening onto a small terrace leading down to the garden.
Their is a private parking area opposite the house.

Breakfast at the communal table was fantastic with everything homemade.

The images of this accomodation on their website do not do the place justice - it is much, much nicer.

We just loved it.

Wespent 2 nights in Brigitte's guest house and it was a perfect oasis of luxury and hospitality. We loved heading up the spiral staircase to our room, which was large and finely furnished. We ate dinner with the other guests and Brigitte and Pascal on our second evening - and had a a fantastic time. They are generous hosts - the wine was flowing and the food, all home-cooked, was delicious.
if you are looking for something a little different to impersonal hotels, then try this place.
We were touring on our motorbike, but could easily have spent a few more days exploring this part of France.

Now that Michelin guide has got their location corrected, this tres authentique lodging should be even easier to find. Brigitte and Pascal have created one of those special places where visitors can relax and enjoy a colorful corner of La France in a low-key setting. Brigitte went above and beyond to help us appreciate the nearby lesser-known villages of the SE Correze. Wonderful breakfasts. We had the Inglenook fireplace room and will dream of it for years. Tres Sympa. The building and grounds are tres especiale for those with cameras or artbrushes.

We stayed at Jeanne Maison (named after the owner's mother) in the Spring of 2007. It was fantastic. The Chambre d'hote was located in the middle of this beautiful "Plus Beau Village." The inn was reconstructed in the old, red architecture of the village. The room was quiet, large, comfortable and very well appointed and had nice view of the village church and surrounding area. Another big plus was the private parking. Perhaps the best part of staying here was the dining experience of the Table d'hote prepared by Bridgette. The innkeepers were very friendly and helpful and there are many medieval villages around the area to see and tour. We had a delightful stay at this well deserved 4 epis chambre d'hote.
