Having eaten many meals at the restaurant we decided to stay overnight to see what the hotel rooms are like and make this an extra special start to our holiday in the Lot region.
From the moment we walked through the gates into the lovely picturesque gardens, situated to the side of the chapel, we were greeted by the hotel owners. Laura, the daughter in law, made us feel like we were family members returning home, as we were made to feel so welcome.
We were shown to our hotel room overlooking the former schoolhouse, and on stepping outside of our patio doors was a separate patio area with table and chairs. The room was bright and clean with a moderate sized bathroom.
There is an upper outside terrace for dining if the weather is good as well as a lovely restaurant / dining room. Food is excellent and very reasonably priced at 26 euros for 3 courses. We enjoyed the 'amuse bouche' prior to our superbly presented meal. All products are locally and seasonally sourced so the chef was very inventive and created something that looked stunning as well as tasting really good. Food is what I would call nouvelle cuisine but we both felt completely full up at the end of our meal. The restaurant was very busy with locals as well as residents on the night we stayed, so I would recommend booking your table.
We both agreed it was a delightful stay, enhanced by good food and beautiful surroundings.
We hope to return to this little gem of a hotel later in the year, but we need to lose a bit of weight beforehand!
