Great spot, so close to the medieval walled city. Lovely people, absolutely beautiful surroundings with amazing views from the room with the balcony. Breakfast out on the back lawn drinking in the view was awesome. Carolyn visited with friends september 2015.

This beautiful Bed &Breakfast is set underneath the stunning town of Cordes Sur Ciel which is in my opinion the jewel in the crown of this region. The property is very imposing overlooking the valley below and it certainly has the wow factor. Arrival isn't easy it is quite hidden down some very small country roads which are not lit... More

It took us a while to find but it was worth it. The tranquility and situation of this place was incredible. We had a room in the watchtower with spectacular views over open and calming countryside. We were greeted on a hot day with an ice cold beer, just what we needed! Our hosts were kind, considerate and with a... More

I visited Aurifat in February after the area had been covered in snow and was still very icy. Matt and Kay are wonderful, caring hosts. My room was lovely, spacious and very well decorated. It was beautifully warm and I slept like a baby in the amazingly comfortable bed. The views are equally breathtaking from the room, well appointed bathroom... More

We echo the sentiments in previous positive reviews. Difficult to find, but well worth it. Beautiful views and quirky interior due to age of property. The welcome we received was excellent and included a cup of tea delivered to the room by Kay, who along with Matt make excellent hosts.

Very very nice staff, a beautiful and CLEAN establishment, quiet and tranquil setting and very close proximity to Cordes-sur-Ciel make this a top choice. Would definitely stay here again. Bravo to the staff for being so nice and accomodating in every way!

We loved this accommodation, probably the most of our three week trip to rural France and Paris. Matt is from Britain so speaks excellent English. The views from our room was breathtaking. Truly a treat. Just a hint to help find this lovely B&B - Matt included the lat and long with his email to us, and we entered that... More

gorgeous. A little tough to find; they sent directions but the landmarks in the lower town that you needed to find were a bit obscure.....but we made it work.....very quiet location, easy to walk up back streets into the bastide town of Cordes....Matt and Kay are truly wonderful - we felt at home immediately - whether by hook or crook...

Aurifat really is a very special place. It is situated on the Southern side of Cordes hill, but very much in the countryside. We had a beautiful room with a terrace overlooking the valley. The crisp percale bedlinen, towels and excellent shower were lovely. We enjoyed the fresh fruit salad and freshly pressed coffee for breakfast. Matthew and Kay are... More

Other reviewers have covered the main points so we will not repeat it all. Matt & Kay were excellent, welcoming hosts. Our room, the Stables (Ecurie) was on the ground floor with no other rooms above. Like the whole house, this was in a peaceful position with fantastic views across a valley. This room also has a private outside sitting... More
