we stayed at Mark and Clare for great 5 days and nights. The house is sitting in a gorgeous valley surrounded by green lawn and beautiful garden. Mark and Clare made us feel at home from the first minute. Their warm and informal attitude is so welcoming. The house has a lot of style and it is furnished and designed... More

2014 was our second consecutive year visiting this wonderful b&b, having stayed four nights each year. we have thought about what makes this particular b&b stand out above the others in france, aside from all those obvious things like cuisine, quality of the rooms, attention to detail, etc. la metairie des songes is so special because of its owners, mark...

My husband and I stayed here for just one night last week, and are so glad we did! As others have mentioned the warm welcome from Clare and Mark is fantastic. Their house is beautifully and stylishly furnished and decorated. But the wow factor is Mark's wonderful cooking - both the dinner and the breakfast were outstanding - the plates... More

This was our second visit, and certainly won't be our last. It's situated in a beautiful part of France and very close to the Dordogne and the equally beautiful Lot; Clare and Mark are perfect hosts and were even kind enough to lend us their own bikes; the rooms are romantic; the value for money is incredible. We stayed in... More

We have used this hotel twice for business purposes. Hotel set in beautiful countryside.The hosts are very friendly and helpful and the food is out of this world. Rooms very tasteful and the beds comfortable. Thoroughly recommended.

Clare and Mark greeted us warmly with their friendly pooch. My husband and I were given the Monet room as we had our little furkid with us. The room, like everything else in the house, was cosy and clean. The fireplace in the living room was an added touch as the night was pretty cold. Dinner was exquisite. Thank you... More

Just back from an 2 week stay/cycling trip in the Dordogne Valley. We started our trip with a stay with Clare, Mark & Bramley. What a fantastic start to an amazing holiday. Their hospitality, Bramley's warm greeting, a beautiful yet comfortable home, were only surpassed by Mark's fine cooking and art of presentation. An amazing dinner we will never forget,... More

We visited La metairie des Songes about two years ago and were flabbergasted about the warm welcome, the quality of the rooms and most of all the fine dining(Michelin star level). Last week we were in Gourdon again and all was at the same high level. A very special chambre d'hote experience that we would like to recommend to every... More

After a day of driving, this B & B was a beautiful find in the countryside just outside Gourdon. Our room was very modern and roomy. Our dinners were way beyond our expectations. Mark is a fabulous chef and we enjoyed and appreciated his expertise. We truly enjoyed sharing our dinners outside with couples from Vancouver and Dorset, England. Claire... More

This has to be our favorite place in France. A great combination of comfort,peace and superb food,probably the best we have had anywhere. Stayed in Degas room this time,both this and Van Gogh have extremely comfortable super-king beds. Clare and Mark (and Bramley the dog!) give a great welcome and look after their guests so well. Do stay here,you won't... More
