One of the loveliest houses in a very lovely village. Pretty rooms have parquet floors and white walls, the food is a delight

Built for the canons (chanoines) of Turenne, this ancient hotel-restaurant has been in Claude's family for 300 years. No wonder the family held on to it: the 16th-century, mellow-stoned house with its steep slate roof is one of the loveliest in a very lovely village. Chantal, charming and gracious, takes care of guests from dawn to dusk, always with a smile. The pretty bedrooms, freshly decorated, are scattered among outbuildings, two of them approached via a little bridge from the garden. Well lit, they have parquet floors and white walls; bathrooms ooze fluffy towels. The stone-flagged breakfast room feels ancient and airy. Dining takes place in the cosy old cellar whose ceiling vaults over just six white-clothed tables – nicely intimate – or under a fairy-lit pergola in the garden amid honeysuckle and roses where you are asked to "pour your ice-bucket water onto the tomatoes." The food is a delight; Claude is the chef and will use only the freshest, most local produce for his much-praised regional dishes. Ask about their three-day gourmet stay. Great value.

"What a delightful peaceful place this is. We arrived after a long drive to find such a quiet , calming village Turenne is. Picture postcard place but not at all over run with tourists (like us). Chantal looked after us so well and our room was just what we needed. I didn't want to leave the next morning and wished we had booked two nights at least. We had dinner which was also excellent. Thank you for sharing your home with us."

"We stayed for 4 nights with our young daughter. The accommodation was beautiful. The evening restaurant meals in the garden were fantastic, beautifully French, local produce. Service was always delivered with a smile. Suggestions for local visits to adjacent villages aplenty beit historic monument or local food market. We would highly recommend a visit and will most definitely return again."

"It was a real treat staying in the heart of this medieval village after the day visitors had left. The owners of this small intimate hotel went out of their way to make us welcome and the food was exceptional and we thought the stay was good value for money."
