Swish through large wooden gates into a central courtyard and garden filled with birdsong to find lovely Monique and her 18th-century family home, complete with tower. Bedrooms are up the spiral stone tower staircase which oozes atmosphere; all are a good size ('Le Clos' is enormous) and filled with beautiful things. Antiques, beams, rugs, gilt mirrors and soft colours give an uncluttered, elegant feel; bathrooms are luxurious, views from all are lovely. You breakfast on homemade cake, farm butter and fruit salad in the handsome farmhouse kitchen.

"The restoration of Les Brunes is Monique's life work, and she really does go that extra mile to make you welcome. Would happily move in!"
June 2012
"A very comfortable place to stay. We especially appreciated having a well-equipped little kitchen. Monique is a most attentive hostess who goes to enormous efforts to find interesting local food and toiletries for her guests, as well as herself making delicious breads, cakes and jams. We have found recently that breakfasts in France have become so much more interesting and hers, with her generous selection of cheeses, fruits, mueslis, and much else, were quite some of the best. Everything showed great attention to detail and desire to give her guests a really good experience. We were most interested and touched to hear about how she had set about restoring her old family home. Les Brunes is charming, and is set in an idyllic valley. Before breakfast it was a joy to wander along the lane, beside emerald meadows full of spring flowers. Monique gave us excellent advice on visiting Conques and other wonderful nearby places and her local knowledge greatly enhanced our visit."
