“A mansion in the country”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

The Hotel le Grezalide is an incredible gem - hidden away in the French Southwest. The main building is renovated from a Knights of St. John hostelry previously devoted to pilgrims on the route to Santiago de Compostela. The meals are SUPERB! The best continental breakfast I have ever had (and I have had many). Bruno is a fantastic host; Karin is the fabulous chef!
The village of Grezes is small and has nothing to recommend itself except for quiet and good walking. However, you are within easy drive to Rocamadour, St. Circ Lapopie and Figeac. There are many prehistoric caves in the area as well.
We found this an excellent stopping off spot on a road trip from Sarlat to St. Remy de Provence.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the renovated Chateau.

We were traveling in France country side and looking for “Real France” and definitely found it in “Le Grezalide”.
We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights in the beautiful “Chambre Massoudy ” room. We really would like to compliment Bruno and Karine for their hospitality. We weren't not such easy guest, but Bruno was always nice and kind in every situation and made our stay very enjoyable. The hotel is very clean and very well maintained. The beds are very comfortable. We enjoyed to spend time in the pool , especially after a long day of traveling. We especially like art work in the hotel and in the room.
We were following Bruno's advice as to what to visit in Lot and were not disappointed. Breakfast is very fresh and on the sweet side. My husband could not eat sweets for health reasons so Karine made eggs for him and we really appreciated such personal attention.

We loved Lot a lot, it was our favorite region in France and we definitely will be back and will stay in “Le Grezalide”. Ilana, Alex and Lina O. Los Angeles.

We stayed as a couple at La Grezalide for two nights while on a holiday tour of the Lot Valley.

The building dates back to the 17th Century or perhaps earlier but although recently restored as a hotel its classic roots remain evident in the high ceilinged side rooms and wide stone staircase.

The manager was very welcoming and took us to a well appointed and spacious room with bathroom, comfortable bed and fridge. Although our room lacked air conditioning, it was not overly hot thanks to use of shutters and windows. There was plenty of light for reading in bed.

Although our menu included as part of our package offered limited choice, the evening meals were most enjoyable as was breakfast. Other evening menus were available. Wine prices started at around 15Euros. The hotel contained many interesting works of art and was clearly a showroom for accomplished artists.

Minor negative points: the WiFi in our room was a bit intermittent and there was limited shade around the pool.

All in all a very pleasant stay and we would hope to return at some point.

This is a perfect, peaceful spot to escape the bustle of holiday-time St Cirq la Popie, half an hour away, and Figeac, 20 minutes further along the Lot valley. The staff were friendly without being over-attentive, the location is quiet and peaceful. Accommodation is of two types - some in the old chateau, which is also where brekfast and dinner are eaten, others in a U-shaped ground flloor annexe, across the garden, which is where we stayed. This patt apparently was used by a school in the 50s, but it feels nothing like that now! Plenty of trees and shrubs that attract hundreds of beautiful butterflies, and each room has its own little sitting out area. There's an outdoor unheated swimming pool. The hotel has several changing art exhibitions for guests to enjoy, which adds an interesting dimension to your stay.

We ate dinner outside on the terrace of the chateau, which was very pleasant. Service was a little slow and the food was only average - perhaps a little over-priced - but nothing to complain about.

Apparently the Sunday Times has classified them as 'one of the top 100 hotels in Europe' - I wouldn't quite go along with that, but it is a very pleasant place to stay.

Room Tip: Disabled travellers would haveno problem with ground floor rooms in the annexe.

First and foremost, we appreciated the wonderful hospitality from Bruno and Karine (which starts as soon as they answer the phone to take the reservation!). Traveling with three young children (6, 5 and 1.5 y. old), we spent 2 nights in this beautiful hotel in the heart of the Quercy countryside. There was something special for each family member: swimming pool, beautifully restored old building, swings, art everywhere (garden, lounges and dining room) and delicious dinner and breakfast with local products. Our 6-year old (who is normally nearly vegetarian) ate a whole duck leg and even asked for more! On the second night, Karine also adapted the menu for the children.
Our room (Picasso) was located in the adjoining new building on the property which is organized around a patio with lovely flowers and plants. The room was very spacious and comfortable.
The Lot has so many beautiful sites to discover and Bruno gave us some advice on local family-friendly attractions. The place exudes a sense of peacefulness that favors relaxing (even for parents of young children!). We would definitely recommend the place to all people who want to discover the Lot!

My husband, grown son and I stayed there for only 1 night, sadly. We wish that we had stayed there much longer. The owners, Bruno and Karin, were wonderful. The dinner was amazing. The setting is delightful and they have filled their hotel with beautiful art created by artists they personally now. The art is changed regularly. There are weeks worth of amazing sites all accessible from the hotel and Bruno is very happy to help you set the itinerary you would enjoy. Everything s spotlessness clean and has all the ambience you could wish for. It was a major highlight of our trip to southern France from Canada.

Stayed in august 2010 for 3 nights. I forgot to write a review but this year we are planning our holiday to France again and decide to stay 4 nights this time. We had the most simple room with terrace and it was very nice. There are also rooms whit-out terrace/balcony in the main-building (bigger?). We loved the pool (silence!) and the evening dinners on the terrace. Hotel is perfect if you love nice food and a glass of wine in the evening and do not want to stay in a big hotel with too much noise. As I started: we go back and we dont do that a lot (like to stay at different places) but we like to visit the 'lot' because we did not see it all and its beautiful!
