The
Experience

The approach is pretty, along a green open valley, the family is charming, and the house is an immaculate longère. Bedrooms are large, inviting and contemporary, with original features and superb bathrooms. Two open to gardens and terrace, one is up an outside stair overlooking an ancient walnut tree, one overlooks the troglodyte caves and the last is a large wooden kota set among pine trees. For families, couples and seekers of peace: billiards, books, a warming wood-burner and communal kitchen. Table d’hôtes is great fun and dinners are delivered with enthusiasm and imagination; Nathalie grows organic vegetables for savoury crumbles and Nicolas loves his wines.

Reviews

What a special place and so perfect for our family. We drove straight from Calais with our 3 small kids to a HUGE magical garden with zipwire, trampoline, donkeys, sandpit + toys. We stayed in I'Orangerie - huge bedroom for us and another lovely room for the kids, the rooms so comfy and beautifully done. Natalie and her family were so kind and friendly. She made us a very special family birthday supper on the terrace - absolutely delicious food. This place is a true find, right in the middle of the Loire with wonderful Chateaus to visit nearby and so many vineyards! We will definitely return

We had an absolutely fantastic stay at La Cave Margot. The term B&B doesn't do this place justice - it felt more like a luxury hotel but hosted by an extremely friendly, welcoming family. The accommodation was very chic & spotlessly clean (the photographs are very accurate). Our family of 4 found the Orangerie Suite very spacious and comfortable. The garden is a child's dream come true - zip wires, large trampolines, hammocks, table tennis and more. Nathalie was v. knowledgeable re restaurants & day trips, and the food was delicious. This place is a hidden gem, would highly recommend.

Excellent Guest House, very friendly and helpful hosts. We had an evening meal which was very good and the breakfasts were superb, both meals included home made and produced products which were very good.

One of the best French B & B's we have stayed in. Large upstairs room and bathroom. Lovely garden to sit and unwind on our way down to SW France. Natalie, our host was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble. Supper outside with other guests was superb. All together a very good start to our holiday. Fabulous, can't recommend it highly enough.

Lucy, Taunton

An amazing B and B. Delightful hosts Nathalie and Nicolas made us feel very welcome and looked after us very well. The Orangerie exceeded our expectations. Beautifully designed and furnished to a very high standard. The breakfasts were the best we have had at any of the many B and B's we have used before. Will definitely go back and highly recommend it.

I cannot recommend this B&B highly enough. It is absolutely wonderful, the attention to detail in the rooms is excellent. We stayed in the Orangerie suite, this accommodated us being 2 adults and 3 children. It was extremely spacious and well equipped. The hosts at this property are exemplary and make the B&B what it is, they think of everything and go the extra mile for every guest. Nothing is too much trouble and they are constantly working to keep the B&B in the best condition. It was well placed to visit surrounding areas each within about 30-90 mins distance. We will definitely return.

We stayed at La cave Margot for one night to break the journey from the Languedoc to Ouistreham. Nathalie and Nicolas were warm and welcoming. Our bedroom was large and cosy, spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished and we had our own sitting room and luxurious shower room. The breakfast of "eggy bread", homemade granola, yogurt, cheese and much more was delicious. We enjoyed talking in French and English with the very friendly hosts and we would have loved to stay for longer to explore the beautiful local area. We would definitely visit La Cave Margot again

Karen, Broughton astley, leicestershire

Everything about this B&B is special. We went as two families with 5 children under 7 and they were wowed by la Cave Margot as much as we were. The farmhouse conversion has been delivered with taste and style and the rooms are all very spacious and luxurious. It is a place were adults feel they are staying somewhere special yet there is endless entertainment for the children, not to mention feeding the donkeys ! The breakfast was delicious and Nathalie and Nicolas are great fun and perfect hosts.
