We read all the comments about Carpe Diem and thought can a place really be as good as this. Well I can assure you that it is. In fact I have stayed in many 4 / 5 star hotels and eaten in Michelin star restaurants and can confidently say that Carpe Diem beats them all. We stayed there for 3... More

This is our favorite place of all time, so when we were headed back to France we changed our plans just to stay with Patrick and Eric again. It was just as great as before! It is the kind of place you don't want to leave...ever! Again the rooms are spotless, comfortable, the garden beautiful, and Patrick and Eric are... More

Booking this after reading the reviews seemed a no brainer but you do cynically think that it can't be that good. Believe me it is ,in fact the reviews may sell it short!! Even with the exceptionally high standard of the property and the immaculate presentation and cleanliness it is the hospitality of Patrick and Eric that stand out as... More

After a busy 4 days sightseeing in Paris, arriving at Carpe Diem was a wonderful unwind. Time to relax and enjoy this beautiful B&B with it's most gracious hosts, Patrick & Eric and soak up the surroundings. The countryside is magnificent with Carpe Diem in the perfect location in the tiny village of Masangis. We had two evening meals prepared... More

After a few bad travel days (late planes, missed connections, lost luggage, etc.) I arrived at Carpe Diem rather exhausted. I couldn't have landed in a more perfect place to recover my love of travel. Patrick immediately welcomed me and showed me to my beautiful room. I had reserved dinner with Eric and Patrick. It was an evening I won't... More

We stayed at Carpe Diem in 2013 and, on returning to France this year with friends, we knew we would have to have a return visit to this amazing B&B.

"The art of finding something valuable not sought after" On our recent trip to France we were greeted with a special type of warmth, that only comes when you passionate about what you do. The hosts were delightful, the room beautifully adorned and the house (an old farm house renovation) a testament to the period in which it was built.... More

We spent a great weekend last month, as a getaway from Paris. What a beautiful property - it is obvious the pride the owners take in their home. We arrived just before dinner - there were two couples and the accommodations were outstanding. We booked dinner at Carpe Diem and it was the best meal we had in our three... More

We stayed for one night but if only we had known just how special this place is we would have stayed longer. From a charming greeting from Patrick and Eric, to the beautiful room and the most divine dinner (with wine included at a most reasonable price), it was an absolute treat.
