Stylish hotel in pretty village but our attic room was cramped. At 100 euros both the ceiling and the price were steep! In addition, the shower room was only semi private with a glass wall.
Didn't eat in but pool and dining room looked nice. Owners friendly and helpful but we like more space.
Stayed for 2 nights with friends. Our second visit and very happy to return. Small but fabulous. Unusual colourful modernist interiors in a traditional stone exterior. Immaculate breakfasts by the black swimming pool were a highlight.
When touring with American friends we stopped here for one rather hot night and had a wonderful stay. This Hotel was raised from the shell of old village houses which had been created by the architect owner and his wife. What a brilliant job they have done with great rooms in a lovely old town and out american friends were swooning over the place. The food was excellent and I cannot find anything negative to say about the place. It might be difficult for those people with walking disabilities however.
The swimming pool is not large but when you can sit in the cool water when it is 36 C and the owners son brings out a bottle of chilled Chablis what more can one ask for.
We stayed just one night - My wife our three boys (4, 6 & 8) in two rooms on the way back from South of France to Jersey and wow what a great place this is. The family managed hotel is so quaint and setting is beautiful. Personally designed by the family and it works so well. The rooms are quirky and individually designed. Each has it's own features. Every floor is different with chilax areas available everywhere. They even managed to squeeze in a Gym! The pool although small is great for a cool relaxing dip in the early evening before dinner. The food is all cooked onsite by the family and was awesome. All cooked using local produce and offering local beers and wines to try too. The food is excellent so book for dinner while there. The family went out of their way to make sure our stay was as perfect as could possible be. The village is friendly and the people very welcoming. We would highly recomend this hotel to anybody that is passing through or wants to spend some time in a complete Zone out mode for a few days. It may be off teh beaten track but it is well worth the 10 minutes it takes to drive there from Saintes. Thanks for a great time to all of teh family the boys and mum included.
We booked this hotel after seeing it in Alastair Sawday's book. It is an extremely interesting building in that the architects (one of whom was running the show during our stay) have packed a lot into 5 floors of a very narrow building, including a charming roof terrace with a small pool. It is located towards the top of this hill-top village in a small square. Everything is extremely modern/contemporary and minimalist. We were surprised how rapidly we got used to this new experince but on occasion, it did become irritating. For instance, trying to shave in the extremely elegant bathroom, was awkward becaus the free-standing basin aws tucked into the corner with the mirror to the right; it looked great but was not the most practical layout. We enjoyed the food, served on the roof terrace by the pool with wonderful views. We paid €138/night for our spacious double room, €45 each for dinner (plus wine) and €12 each for breakfast.
