The
Experience

The setting is special indeed, off a medieval street in a charming hamlet. Go through a stone archway, across generous parkland, beneath majestic trees into the steep-roofed commanderie. Here, the Knights of the Order of Malta put up 700 years ago en route to Santiago de Compostela and a low curved toll passage still forms part of the house. It is not so much a hotel as a houseful of guests overseen by diminutive Madame Roux, a considerate, welcoming hostess. An uncontrived collection of antiques warms the friendly bedrooms, each with its own personality on a blue and white theme punctuated by touches of dark blue; ceilings soar, floors of varying ages and diverse patterns are softened by Indian rugs. Downstairs, guests gather at round tables set with antique cane chairs, flowery curtains hang at tall windows, marble busts abound and you get two choices per gastronomic course – just right for this unassuming and atmospheric place. A delightful stone rill snakes through the grass to the pond and the Lascaux Caves are a mile down the road. Great value for what you get, and that includes very good, classic French food.

Reviews

This place was gorgeous. We stayed two nights with Mme Roux who was completely charming and made us so welcome. There are only a few rooms but ours was enormous and very comfortable. The food was amazing, plentiful, typically French and very delicious. The grounds and surrounding fields/river were great for walking the dog who also had a very comfortable stay and was made welcome. We would definitely make a return visit.

We are actually staying here this very night ... we absolutely love this place. It is ancient, full of atmosphere, so very welcoming. We have been treated like kings. Tonight's dinner was very lovely indeed. Marilyn's and Mme Roux could not do enough for us. We can walk the dogs for miles and they are welcomed back into the house on our return. This is a wonderful place to be and thank you Sawdays for yet again landing us in another interesting location and what a super one.
