Hosts Blandine and Yves are very charming and made us feel very much at home. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated in a cozy, welcoming style. The private bath was large and sparkling new. My husband and I traveled here to visit Conques (about an hours drive away - we discovered that this was our favourite historic site in southern France) and it was well worth the trip. The first night we were the only guests and shared a lovely dinner with our hosts. Blandine is an excellent cook who serves abundant regional dishes with lots of fresh vegetables and fruit. Her crepes were delicious as dessert one night and for breakfast one morning.
They opened about two years ago, after extensive work to the house. They've done an amazing restoration, and the rooms are beautifully outfitted with every detail thought of (hair dryer, soaps, guide books, maps, etc.). On our first night we wanted to take a walk, so Yves volunteered to drive us into the nearby town where an evening market was being held. It was a beautiful walk back along gently rolling hills and farmlands. The village of Le Bastié is very tiny and picturesque.
Blandine speaks English, but Yves does not (we only spoke with them in French, a great opportunity for us). We were their first North American guests, much to the excitement of their neighbours .
Definitely invest in a GPS if you are traveling in these areas -- worth every euro!
