“It doesn't get any better than this!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

Logis du Paradis was the accomodation and hospitality highlight of our 14 day trip from Nantes - St Malo - Cognac.

The large stunning room was outstanding in every way, as are the building and grounds that are Logis Du Paradis, the 'coutry-house' style dinner was an event in itself and the leisurely feast of a breakfast truly set one up for the day .

All of this AND Sally and Nick as well...perfection, they are the very definition of 'attentive' hosts
- they did everything right, first time, every time.

To ourselves LDP has become the standard by which we judge all others.

Room Tip: ground floor rooms have own terrace area

As soon as we arrived we knew we would enjoy our stay - we had the warmest welcome ever. The rooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable. the pool area is quiet and relaxing and every meal we had there was delicious, and most were served on the lovely terrace. The best thing was the hospitality. Our hosts Sally & Nick felt like old friends and even came and rescued us when we got lost on a walk through the nearby vineyards.
We will definately be back and will recommend this place to all our friends.
Fabulous!

Room Tip: just enjoy - all the rooms are lovely

We returned in May 2011 for our third visit here.
We needed to "Chill out" and oh how we achieved that!
Great accomodation and, as others have said, Nick & Sally are perfect hosts and their local knowledge really does make sure you get the most out of the region.
Borrow the Bramble the Dog and go for a walk...visit the local Post Office for a suberb meal
(Ok it turns into restaurant at night!) visit Angouleme or do nothing gracefully by the pool
Breakfast outside...(and dinner on the first night) Just so relaxing
Damn it why aren't I back there instead of freezing in Northumberland!
The utter antithesis to a souless chain ....(no matter how posh!) This place has character!

We spent 3 nights here in December and couldn't have enjoyed it more. The bed was the most comfortable by far of all in our 3 week trip. The room very large, very comfortable and beautifully decorated. The bathroom was modern, spacious and excellent. Dinner and wine was spectacular and made special by the friendliness of our hosts Sally & Nick. Breakfast was sublime. I can't wait to go back in the summer when I understand that they often eat outside. Great value for money. What makes it really special though is Sally & Nick's local knowledge to help you get the most from the region.

This is a lovely place that offers excellent value for money. It does not offer true luxury but it is beautiful, rooms are spacious and the hosts friendly. We had dinner here and although the food was not spectacular (but perfectly fine) it was very nice to sit outside in this quiet place.

For the price we highly recommend this place.

Logis du Paradis has been beautifully restored to a very high standard. Tasteful and elegant. Nick and Sally were great hosts and really made us feel welcome. We’d booked dinner on the night of arrival which was excellent and much better than most restaurants! The pool area is perfect for relaxing. I would definitely recommend this B&B should anyone be in the Cognac region. Loved their 2 dogs too!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2009

We stayed at Le Logis du Paradis for 5 nights in July 2009 and found it a wonderful spot for a stay in the French countryside. The owners, Nick and Sally, are extremely welcoming and hospitable, and they have renovated the collection of buildings (around 15 of them) themselves over the course of several years. The place as a whole is absolutely beautiful.

They offer accommodation of two self-catering cottages and five guest rooms. We opted for room 2, which opens directly onto the courtyard, and is prettily decorated and comfortable with a separate shower and bath. Just off the main courtyard is a lovely walled garden with a pool, where we sat out a few times with a book and the resident dogs, Bracken and Bramble, for company. Beyond the garden is a meadow with wild flowers, and the whole place has a very relaxed and relaxing feel. There is a kitchen for guests to use, with a fridge and honesty bar well-stocked with wine, beer and other drinks.

As mentioned by other reviewers, Nick and Sally can offer evening meals by arrangement and we took advantage of this on the day of our arrival, after a long drive. The food was excellent, and they were both interested to hear of our plans for the stay and were able to offer suggestions for places to visit, routes to take and restaurants to try. The hamlet of La Magdeleine is tiny with no restaurants of its own, but within an easy drive are a number of small towns and villages that offer some really good (and good value) meals. On all sides you are surrounded by fields of cognac grapes, maize and sunflowers, so the environment has a very rural feel to it, and on one morning we borrowed the pair of bikes that are kept for guests’ use and went off exploring the local area, which was great.

Every morning Sally had gone to great trouble to present a huge array of breakfast choices, including fresh croissants, pains au chocolat, bread, cereal, fruit, yogurt, you name it – far too much for us ever to do proper justice to, and frankly that is always one of the great things about a French holiday!

Cognac is currently still rather an undiscovered part of France, which may be why Le Logis seems like such very good value given what it offers. It would cost a great deal more to stay somewhere like this if it were located in Provence, Burgundy or the Dordogne. We honestly struggle to find any areas of complaint, and will certainly recommend it to our friends.
