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

We visited for dinner with friends to celebrate birthdays. Despite the heat of the day the terrace is sheltered with spectacular views. Excellent starters and some reasonable wines. Main courses were fine but showed less flair than the starters. It is a British family run business providing good service in a convivial atmosphere. Yes we will go again

Incredible value for money with food as good as that which I have had in some of the top London restaurants if not better. Great variety of food. Service was impeccable with great attention to detail and I was made really at home. A nice touch was that the chef served the desert and came and chatted to us. The... More

We ate here whilst holidaying in the region and we should have realised that the food would be pretty English. It was like a Bernie Inn with better steak, not a French accent in sight and a waitress straight out of Faulty Towers. It was okay but over priced and the thick chips must have explained the fried food smell... More

I stayed nearly one week in La Bonne vie. After a lang day of meetings and appointments it's really nice to come back to rest in this hotel. The rooms and bathrooms are super clean, well maintained... , well done Carol. Free and fast WIFI is also one of the big advantages. The super chef Carl knows what cooking is,... More
