We arrived late as the town and road is poorly signed from Cognac (this is nothing new in France). Our room was a little dated but clean and fine for the price and the setting was very nice on the mill stream. As we had the windows closed we weren't too disturbed by the constant flow of traffic on the raised road but in summer it would be noisy.
As it was late (9 pm) we had no time to go out to find somewhere to eat so we foolishly agreed to eat in the restaurant when the owner asked us in the carpark if we wanted him to 'hold the chef' as it was late. We did feel a little hustled into this. The restaurant was chilly and the prices were far too high for very average food (€28 - 30 for a main course! with only a sprinkling of veg). We would have expected some Michelin stars and amazing food and environment for this price. My fish was cold and three little circles of cheese for €8 - who are you kidding? The cheaper end wine however was good and well priced so we took some solace in that. (Choose the Loire Sauvignon and have a starter only is my advice!) We declined the breakfast at €8 -12 each and went to a little snack place across the road where we had nice coffee and croissants for a total of €6. All I can say is Beware.
