Stayed at Le Couvent des Cordeliers for two nights, while viewing properties around the area. So pleased my first choice was fully booked as we absolutely loved this little gem of a place! It really is as pretty as the pictures suggest...even better in fact. Loved our room on the top floor...would have been nice to have a separate shower cubicle but that is a small niggle in the overall charm of the room, which, by-the-way, was absolutely spotless. Unfortunately, the restaurant was unavailable on our visit, which was a disappointment as the terrace dining area is gorgeous as is the indoor restaurant area...but planning on returning when it is available. However, breakfast on both mornings was lovely, fresh and bountiful! Huge thank you to Peter, who really made our stay; welcoming and helpful, we really can't fault the running of this superb little Hotel. Peter helped with alternative dining suggestions, both of which were successful and we will also be returning to them as well as staying again at Le Couvent. Have given one less top mark to value, simply because it would have been lovely to have been able to have dinner or lunch here and unfortunately, there was no notification prior to booking that the restaurant was not available, but otherwise, full marks all round!
