We loved our stay with Ian and Penelope and agree with other recent reviews - home from home - breakfast is delightful with home-made jams and croissants, lovely bread, great coffee, fresh fruit...we also picked our own figs off the tree on the way down to breakfast each morning. The plums were wonderful too! Thanks Ian! The highlight for us... More

Bad that we took this long to write a well-deserved review. Aurifat was the highlight of our 2 week trip, not only because of the beautiful surroundings but mostly because Ian and Penelope were so wonderful. The hills in this region, when viewed from the upper floor windows, looked like they were from a classic painting. The garden, the breakfast,... More

Originally only booked for two nights, we stayed for three and enjoyed a thoroughly relaxing time. Ian and Penelope are the most gracious and thoughtful hosts of this beautiful and historic B&B. Rooms have views of the gardens and pool together with the beautiful hills beyond and breakfast, including home made jams, can be enjoyed outside with the same views.... More

We arrived in poor weather - very atypical, cold and wet for late June, but the charm of this place was immediately obvious. First of all, nightingales were singing most of the day! Our host said they sing all night and day until July I think. It was wonderful to hear. The rooms are very comfortable and have fabulous views... More

This was our second visit to Aurifat and this time we were even more reluctant to leave. The views from the rooms and terraces are beautiful, the pool magnificent and the hospitality outstanding. The town of Cordes is charming too, and the countryside very attractive rolling hills - perfect for walking in the (relative) cool of the morning before returning... More

Aurifat was quite simply the highlight of our holiday. And I know I am not the first to have said this! A rambling ancient villa and 16metre pool set into the hillside just below the village of Cordes commands awesome views over the adjacent countryside. Rooms are spacious and tastefully furnished and most have their own private entry and landing.... More

A wonderful stay at Aurifat, a most charming and comfortable B & B, super hospitality and a fabulous place to stay. The town, the view, as well as the property, everything was perfect!

We stayed for two nights on a family road trip to southern France. The rooms, food, and hosts were all more than expected and for the costs a great value. I highly recommend Aurifat. This B & B is a 10 minute walk (albeit up a very steep hill) from the old city of Cordes-sur-ciel and overlooks a spectacular part... More

I stayed at Aurifat last September with my boyfriend. We're from Canada and got to France in an unseasonably hot september. We both used the beautiful pool at Aurifat to cool down even with warnings that it was only 20 degrees. Then we did a scenic little walk around the stunning villiage of Cordes where we saw the many ferral... More
