We spent 4 nights in the lovely house of Clair & Mark. The rooms are very nice, clean, comfortable, great shower, very warmly designed giving you the feeling that you are in your own bedroom. Clare & Mark are the best hostess, they are so friendly but will keep your 100% privacy and ready to help on any question at... More

Descending from Orléans to the south of France, we stayed 3 nights in the charming Chambres d'hôtes of Clare and Mark. Great professional hospitality and each night a different, high standard menu (some restaurants can be jealous of it!) is served. Nice discussions with the other guests while enjoying an excellent breakfast or superb diner! Thank you for the lovely... More

We are quite a well-traveled couple and I take great care in choosing our accommodations. I've read about La Metairie des Songes and I have some expectations about our stay but my goodness, it exceeded even my high expectations!! The owners, Clare and Mark, were one of the most gracious people we've met. Friendly, charming, and discreet. Nothing was too... More

Absolutely superb accommodation run by English couple Mark and Clare Newton. Beautiful and spotless rooms with en suites. Mark's evening meals are of the highest cuisine, more than worthy of Masterchef professionals! Simply superb. The breakfasts are similarly exquisite!

Every 5 star review you read here is thoroughly deserved. Mark and Clare offer a warm and professional welcome to their lovely home in a beautiful setting. Their incredible attention to detail makes this feel much more like a boutique hotel than a 'B&B'. Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean, and the whole house is stylishly decorated. Mark's... More

We returned to Clare and Mark's wonderful B&B after a wonderful experience there last October. Once again, the food was to die for and it was lovely to see the lovely building and surrounding countryside in the sunshine. We had a delightful and convivial evening with the other guests and were able to practice our newly improved French. The warmth... More

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.

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
