This was our fifth stay in the B&B at Le Mortier. Unfortunately we could only stay one night this time, but, as always, were made very welcome. We favour the upstairs twin as it has a little more room but mind your head at the top of the stairs! It is quite self contained with modern ensuite and fridge, if you need it. The location is extremely quiet, being in the middle of the countryside. As usual, we booked an evening meal, prepared by Peter, and as always, were treated to a fantastic three course dinner accompanied by generous quantities of local wines. The continental breakfast never disappoints with a wide choice but one can hardly do it justice after the previous evening's meal! Joan and Peter are always very helpful and ensure an enjoyable stay. We have used Le Mortier as a staging post en route to other parts of France (or Spain) and used it as a base for exploring the Loire and its many chateaux. It is highly recommended for either purpose.
