We were warmly greeted, shown to comfortable and tastefully converted accommodation and shared an excellent meal with interesting conversation. We felt genuinely welcomed into the de Bettingnes house. The breakfast matched the previous night's dinner. All in a most peaceful and attractive very rural setting.

We stayed one night in this beautiful place, on our way back from Spain. One night was far too short though. It's classed as a B&B, but what you actually get is a beautiful mezzanine apartment in a lovingly restored old cottage. Everything is spotless, and of a high standard and all the little details have been thought of. There... More

Gorgeous place with private rooms and excellent lively friendly hosts. The room, well more of an apartment really was lovely with mezzanine sleeping area and very tastefully decorated. Great food and lovely views - too bad we could not stay more than one night!

This Sawday recommended Chambres is in a delightful location. The rooms, old outbuilding conversion, are superb. The breakfast and hosts were excellent... Madams preserves a triumph . Wish we could have stayed more than one night. If we are this way again, a MUST.

Maïthé et Paul … we were indeed charmed by your cooking from the fruits of your garden, the long walk, the adventure into porcelain and your wonderful companionship … one of our very best stays in a chambre d’hôte …

We had a wonderful experience at this little gem . Unfortunately we only spent one night here but will definitely be back. My husband was flying out of Limoges airport so we wanted to make an overnight stop in the area. I found Les Drouilles BLeues on Sawdays special places, it truly lived up to its name . The room...

We chose this wonderful place from Alistair Sawday's website. With Latitude/Longitude co-ordinates given on their web site our GPS took us right to the door. At the end of the road, with only 4 other surrounding houses, it was very peaceful and we wished we could have stayed longer. Room was very clean, bright and comfortable with a great bed.... More

Stayed here because we wanted to visit friends who had recently relocated to France nearby. The owners made us very welcome and the two double rooms were very well appointed with lovely rustic touches. Breakfast was their own home made jams and toast. Dinner was made with produce from their garden. The setting is really lovely. Pity it was nearly... More

We discovered this beautiful B&B through the "Alastair Sawday's Special Places to stay" - and special it certainly was. We specifically wanted a quiet little B&B in a rural setting so this suited us perfectly. After a long day of driving we (large family with young children) arrived quite late at night. Between our Sat Nav and directions given to... More
