We had seen the gardens at Prieure d'Orsan on the television courtesy of the lovely Monty Don and decided we just had to go and see for ourselves - we were not disappointed. The medieval garden rooms are amazing and each one a delightful surprise and I echo the many complimentary reviews already posted. As we were staying for three... More

This is a haven of tranquility in a setting of extraordinary creation -a medieval garden in which to lose all one's cares.Wonderful rooms, food, service etc. The surrounding country with its enchanting villages ensure a perfect experience.

Our host Patrice could not have been more hospitable. The cuisine much of which came from the gardens was exquisite and accommodated my taste preferences. . The gardens were pure joy! This area has many treasures and we wished we could have stayed longer than the six days we had allotted. I do not agree with the negative criticisms of... More

This hotel/restaurant is in the middle of nowhere but I imagine most guests, like us, stayed there to spend time in the gardens, which are spectacular...each twist and turn revealing yet another gem. There is a shop. The hotel/restaurant has comfortable and stylish public rooms with books and magazines a'plenty as well as various collectables. However, our bedroom and bathroom... More

Very high class exquisirely appointed but retains the rustic feel of the original priory. Extraordinary gardens. Unpretentious meals but completely superb taste experience. No matter that there was no choice. You are being shown the artistry of the chef. Unlike a lot of luxury dining the artistry is in the taste not in the visuals.Quiet peaceful and elegant countryside experience... More

A beautifully restored old Priory with stunning gardens which have been created by the owner over the last 20 years. He has had a most extraordinary vision and has created something quite unique Dinner was fantastic although we weren't offered any choice - there simply was no menu. I'm sure he would have done something special if there were allergies,... More

Prieure D'Orsan is an old monastery beautifully restored and surrounded by unbelievably wonderful gardens. We planned on spending a day exploring the area but, other than a short bike ride, stayed on the property to enjoy the serenity it afforded. The delicious food revolves around what is available in the garden that day. Patrice is the soul of the property.... More

We stayed here for just one night on the way down to the South. It's a beautifully converted priory which the owners (architects) bought derelict. They have restored it lovingly. The gardens are also beautiful and the restaurant food good homecooking (no choice but I advised them of a food intolerance which was no problem). Perfect English spoken. The public... More
