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. We can't wait to return - wonderful! Do... More

In early April, we visited Carpe Diem for the second time in a year. As it was the first time, our stay was perfect.

This is great upscale b&b that looks like a manor house inside and a genteel country cottage outside. My husband and I were showing our friends visiting from the US a taste of the French countryside and Carpe Diem was a terrific introduction.
