What a lovely place, a real gem. In a beautiful little village, the ancient convent is warm & welcoming, & exquisitely decorated. The rooms are large & stylish with a lovely modern shower room en suite. Ray is a good host & excellent cook & this turned out to be one of our best nights of the holiday, albeit, it... More

Ray has created a charming B & B full of antiques and lovely paintings. The evening meal, 4 courses with wine, was restaurant quality, served in a cosy dining room. The village itself was so pretty, it was a shame we were just passing through. Ray is a welcoming host, and the price makes this a complete bargain.

A beautiful little village and a unique atmosphere and welcome to be found in this fantastic accommodation. Lovely walks in the area and even the option of a horse drawn carriage tour. Could not recommend it highly enough - would love to make another visit soon!

We stayed in Mortemart for one night, simply because it was the halfway point between our week of accommodation in the south of France, and our week in the north west. It was such a beautiful spot I wish we had stayed longer. Mortemart itself is quite small, but very picturesque, we were able to walk around it from the... More

Staying here is a treat, almost like staying in a museum. Raymond, the owner, has a vast collection of bric-a-brac and objets d'art that are tastefully displayed in the dining room, lounge and corridor. The building is ancient dating from the 14th century and retains a charming 'patina of age'. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and have been updated with... More

As you walk through the gate, you are transported back in time. Stunning house which has been tastefully decorated throughout. It all just adds to the charm. Ray is a wonderful host and makes you feel welcome immediately. We would highly recommend the evening meal. Extremely good value and excellent quality.

Situated in a small beautiful village in the Haute Vienne region of the Limousin- truly rural but with plenty to see in the area-Limoges, Oradour, hills and lakes.Ideal for a few days - if you would prefer not to drive down fly direct to Limoges(Ryanair Flybe) hire a car 40minutes drive-voila. A lovely ancient convent with spacious rooms, all with... More
