We have eaten in La Bonne Vie many times when we lived nearby, Carol,s lovely smile and Carls excellent cooking just make you want to go back time and again to enjoy both the food and take in the beautiful view over the countryside from the restaurant,s panoramic windows. Definitely not a place to drive past without stopping, thank you... More

Whilst house hunting in the area we spent four nights at the A La Bonne Vie. We had a room at the rear with fantastic views stretching as far as Niort which was about 25 miles away. The room and en-suite bathroom were immaculate. Carol and Carl seem to have thought of everything that their guests might need, including a... More

Thank you Carl and Carol, yet again a fantastic night of amazing food and great company. Our favourite restaurant! Off the beaten track, but that's what makes it special as you'd never imagine such a top class restaurant in a quiet, sleepy French village. Magnifique!!

Just returned from a week's stay at La Bonne Vie and we loved it. Carol and Carl could not have made us feel more welcome and were very attentive to whatever we needed. They were really good company too. Carl is an excellent chef and we ate delicious food from a small but varied menu. Very much up to the... More

We have a holiday home in France and try to visit the restaurant at La Bonne Vie every time we are there. It is always a pleasure to go. The food is excellent, the service is great, both Carol and Carl are very friendly and welcoming. The set lunchtime menu is really good value and we haven't found better.

I took my wife here for her 68 birthday. As we wanted to have a few drinks, we decided to book a room for the night. Once we arrived, both Carl & Carol greeted us with a very warm welcome The food was exceptional and we will certainly return at a later date. The accommodation certainly lived up to a... More

We absolutely adore this place, the food is amazing! Carl and Carol work very hard and it shows. The staff are very attentive and Carol is an amazing host. We love the fact that Carl (chef) comes out for a chat too. We would come back to France just to eat here. Love it, love it, love it! Clare, Adam... More

This was our third visit to A La Bonne Vie and our hosts, Carol and Carl, are making a great success of their establishment. They work hard at what they do - Carol as front-of-house and Carl as master of his kitchen, creating excellent food at reasonable prices. The rest of the staff are also hard working, not just the...

Only one dissenting comment on this auberge out of all the reviews received? And this from a 'steak and frites' member who casually visited for a drink! Surely some mistake or skulduggery? This auberge and restaurant is different to the French norm. They are friendly, accommodating and helpful. The food is good, the prices fair and the rooms are clean,... More

My husband and I booked to stay 3 nights and ended up staying 5 nights. Carol and Carl go the extra mile to make sure everything is ok for your stay. The whole place is spotless and the rooms nicely decorated. The food is lovely and plentiful. It is so quite in the village and everybody is so friendly. You... More
