Stylish hotel in pretty village but our attic room was cramped. At 100 euros both the ceiling and the price were steep! In addition, the shower room was only semi private with a glass wall. Didn't eat in but pool and dining room looked nice. Owners friendly and helpful but we like more space.

Stayed for 2 nights with friends. Our second visit and very happy to return. Small but fabulous. Unusual colourful modernist interiors in a traditional stone exterior. Immaculate breakfasts by the black swimming pool were a highlight.

We stayed here on the way through France to Spain. It was easy to find and only a short distance from the motorway. Check in was swift and informal and we were shown exactly where we could safely park which was almost next to the hotel. The hotel is very small (10 rooms) but our room, a superior double was...

Very surprising from the rooms' design to the amazing surprises at the restaurant: a cuisine entirely made with local products and very healthy taste. A very cool place with a warm family style welcome and friendly service. A place to visit for sure or to come back to definitely.

“I had previously booked 5 days in Hotel Garcon totalling 560 Euro. Unfortunately soon after booking this I was aware that I would not be able to stay on those dates and so rang up the hotel, talked to the receptionist and cancelled the booking. They assured me at that stage that my booking was cancelled. A few months later...

We stayed overnight as part of wedding celebrations which had started in Cognac. The setting is an idyllic village on hillslopes - we took a walk after breakfast into the countryside and alongside the stream. The welcome was warm & the food : well one word: 'stunning!' We would go with the duck stew every time! We had our own...

The hotel sits quite neatly on a corner opposite a stern looking 12th Century church which sits at a jaunty angle to the adjacent hill. The hotel is the combination of five houses rather cleverly combined to make an interesting locking space. When I arrived rather frazzled from a long day they looked after me before supper with a selection...

We had a great stay here, actually just as a stop over on our way to Spain, but it deserves a longer visit. Some people say the hotel is expensive, but the superb, and very reasonable priced, restaurant makes up for that. We'll definitely come back!

When touring with American friends we stopped here for one rather hot night and had a wonderful stay. This Hotel was raised from the shell of old village houses which had been created by the architect owner and his wife. What a brilliant job they have done with great rooms in a lovely old town and out american friends were...
