Stunning place both inside and out. Room was both beautiful and immaculate. Only stayed one night but could have quite happily spent several weeks. Received a call within minutes of making my booking online. The hosts were absolutely excellent and couldn’t have made us feel more welcome. Would strongly recommend staying at this hotel.

The garden and house are lovely in a quiet village. The rooms are spacious and light and include touches like L'Occitane toiletries. The dinner was delicious and Melanie and Neil were excellent hosts. Sitting in the garden with drinks provided on arrival is a perfect way to unwind. Neil and Melanie were more than happy to go out of their... More

We recently retired after running our own small hotel for 22 years and were delighted to discover La Traverse. The house was charming which was matched by our hosts Neil and Melanie who made us and everyone else very welcome indeed. It's location offers an ideal stopover in the middle of France but we felt we could have easily stopped... More

We stayed just one night at La Treverse but wished we could have stayed longer! It is a beautiful house in a stunning spot. The room was delightfully furnished in cool colours and the bathroom was enormous with lovely toiletries. We stayed for dinner and Melanie's cooking was delicious. Both Melanie and Neil are charming hosts and nothing is too... More

La Traverse is a real gem in a beautiful area of France. The hotel is absolutely lovely with a glorious garden to find a spot to sit and relax in. Neil and Melanie gave us such a friendly welcome we felt like we had 'come home'! Melanie's passion for preparing the freshest ingredients is very evident. Our meal was superb... More

Neil & Melanie are excellent hosts & our room was as comfy as usual. Stayed 5 times now and this was the first time with the new owners - but excellent. Dinner with 4 Aussies on a high speed trip of Europe was great fun! Best (slow cooked) beef hot pot for a long time - Melanie's cooking is very... More

Four Aussies travelling in France stopped for one night at La Traverse. We were absolutely delighted with the whole experience. Neil and Melanie were the most accommodating hosts by far - casual, friendly and caring. Although we only stayed for one night our strolls in the district, Neil's pleasant manner, Melanie's cooking, and the ambience of La Traverse is outstanding.

What a relaxing place, the owners have already become our firm friends and we've only met them since 5pm this evening ! This is a superb spot, a great retreat. Dinner a definite recommend, we enjoyed: aperitifs, soup, duck with roasties, cheese board and superb desserts, washed down with a lovely bottle of red wine. We hope to have just... More

We spent 2 nights at La Traverse on our way home from the South of France. The house and its surrounding garden is beautiful! Neil gave us a warm welcome on arrival. The rooms are very nicely decorated using a lot of white coloured furniture. Melanie serves honest and very tasteful meals: you get a 4-course menu, wine and aperitif... More
