We arrived early evening after a 7 hour drive from Vallalodid. We texted our ETA and Clare was there to meet us and help us up with our bags. Parking is on the road just outside. We had a lovely room with sloping ceilings and a view over the water. Clare was very helpful with a local map and options... More

Lovely old property, crammed full of character. Very comfortable bed, impeccably clean rooms. Shared lounge-dining room with a kitchen attached where food and wine could be kept chilled and prepared and consumed at leisure. The host, Clare, was very friendly and a mine of information about the local area which was invaluable. The stay was very informal and almost felt... More

What did we like? We loved the setting, the comfort of home, the fabulous breakfast but most of all we loved Clare, the owner. Wow! In her is found an example of how a b&b should be run. Her easy going manner, her sincere welcome, her attention and her local knowledge all make her place a special place to stay.... More

This beautifully restored building beside river and lake, contains a rarely found treasure - the owner Clare. Nothing is too much trouble, hot drinks are provided, restaurants are located and their qualities identified. The rooms are charming, very comfortable and spotlessly clean, with masses of white fluffy towels and crisp white linen. Clare's breakfasts are delicious and plentiful. Well worth... More

What do you get if you blend an elegant French merchant house with a classy English decor? Add in a hostess who ensures your visit will be comfortable and memorable? Clare Pickering has created a haven of peace, a better home from home and an oasis of tranquility. We stayed one night, then booked for a week. Bliss!

Absolutely charming Chambres d'hotes. Claire is as welcoming and hospitable as they come and upgraded us to the suite as it was low season. The décor is lovely - a fantastic old building with original features tastefully decorated, comfortable beds with quality bedding, showers hot and powerful, towels fluffy and plentiful, great continental breakfast - I could go on. It... More

It is always a joy to return to somewhere one rated highly to find that not only is it just as good as before but even better! Clare Pickering is really into her stride with this wonderful chambre d'hôte, situated in this most attractive waterside part of St.Jean d'Angely. The rooms are all beautifully furnished with everything provided to to... More

The title says it all. My partner and I booked a three night stay at this wonderful riverside Chambre D'hote in St Jean, and used it as a base for our house hunting in the area. The owner , Clare is a lovely warm and generous host who makes you feel immediately at home. Her generosity of spirit and care... More

If only all B&B,s were like this. Arrived tired and tetchy after a long drive but from the moment we arrived until we were waved away next morning nothing was too much trouble. Am a bit worried about posting this review - when word gets out about Clare and L'Etoile I fear future bookings will be difficult. Warm welcome, warm... More

“This is such a delightful hotel and owner, Clare, cannot do enough to help. She's a font of knowledge about the area, and what she doesn't know she'll find out. I was unfortunate enough to arrive without my suitcase (thanks BA) but Clare immediately came to the rescue with creams, necessities etc. Breakfast is substantial, good teas and excellent coffee....
