We stayed for 3 nights in June 2014, the hotel is truly unique and the welcome both friendly and helpful. We chose the Ochre room which opens onto a charming terrace overlooking a vineyard with views across the Loire valley. All the rooms are beautifully decorated and furnished with an eclectic choice from the owners travel's - delightful. We enjoyed... More

We stayed there with 4 for five nights in the summer of 2013. The room was very big, the bathroom very luxury. The breakfast was quite expensive. The swimming pool is very good. the region is fantastic.

I was so excited when we first saw this hotel (it was booked for us by a tour company) because I had really wanted to stay in a cave room. I was delighted that our room was built into the cave. The man who checked us in was very friendly and helpful. Those are the excellent things about the hotel.... More

Dear Madam, Dear Sir, We apologize again, for the smokers. Unfortunately they smoked outside on their terrace which is not forbidden. The window of the room in which you stayed was left open which caused the smoke getting through. As it concerns the breakfast, the orange juice is freshly squeezed in the morning & the bread, the "viennoiserie" are cooked... More

This is not your typical budget chain hotel, but one with real character, a lovely French experience. Hotel set in side of cliffs riddled with troglodyte caves; swimming pool is inside one such cave! Rooms well appointed and comfortable. We also had an excellent dinner one evening. Staff very helpful and friendly. Lots to see in the area, well worth... More

We had 3 wonderful nights here. The staff were very helpful, and had very good English. It is a bit nerve-wracking negotiating the driveway, but its worth it. The swimming pool is unique and a must-do; some of the fitness equipment could do with some maintenance ( but really who needs to do exercise on holiday?!). It's an easy 10min... More

This is a brilliant little hotel, personal and individual. Helpful staff who made us very welcome. There is a very narrow entrance, you begin to think like we did that the car, ours is a big 4x4, won't go through the gap in the rock. It did and there was ample space to turn round. Some rooms are inside the... More

We stayed here last week for three nights, in the Johann de Witt room. It had a huge bathroom and a mezzanine floor with a study; it was tastefully decorated and very clean. The continental breakfast was served in a lovely room. The pool, in a little cave, was great fun! The village has a lot to offer; a great... More

Stayed two nights in the unique troglodyte room, described in another review. We didn't think the humidity was a problem unless you don't like a slight spa-like smell in the room. Big plus was the underfloor heating in the room, which helped counter the cold conditions. The cave-like room is more like a suite with two nice balconies and the... More

The hotel is unusual, and perhaps not for everyone. That is its charm- the owners are welcoming and extremely helpful in finding restaurants that are excellent- the swimming pool in the cliffside- called troglodyte- is amazing. We booked late, so we were not able to get one of the troglodyte rooms.That is our only regret-

My wife and I stayed for two nights in the "Troglodyte Room" of the Hotel Demeure de la Vignole in Turquant on our way to the South of France after landing in Paris. The Hotel and surroundings are really amazing. The Hotel and the referenced room actually share the walls of a 35000 year old pre history villa. The room... More
