This was our third visit to La Metairie des Songes. The first time we stayed for three days on our fortnight long trip to France, the second time we returned for our honeymoon (it was that good the first time) and this time we introduced my husband's parents to the table d'hote on a four night mini-break. Why do we... More

La Metairie des Songes is truly delightful, and set in the most beautiful tranquil countryside. Mark and Clare were wonderful hosts and could not have been more genuinely kinder or helpful. They made us feel like friends. The food was to die for; it was truly exquisite. We really could not recommend this lovely place more highly.

If the Michelin Guide included chambres d'hote, then the entry for La Metairie des Songes would be plastered with stars and other distinctions. The beautiful, rural setting close to the attractions of Gourdon, the friendly welcome and the large and well-furnished en-suite bedroom would have justified our visit in themselves, but the two dinners produced by Mark and Claire surpassed...

This review is unfortunately long overdue as we had the pleasure of staying with Mark and Clare in early April 2016. After discovering this gem 2 years ago, we made a point of starting our 3-week trip to France with a 3 night stay at La Metairie –wish it could have been longer but we had a very busy schedule,...

La Métairie des Songes Place of rest and enjoyment enabling a country atmosphere, quiet and unique. The highlight is the gourmet meals of the owners being able to enjoy the delicious food served in very aesthetic and fair prices. Warmly recommended Vered and Raanan Kislev

Originally, our first stay with Mark and Claire was to fill a brief gap in our itinerary. It turned out to be one of highlights of our trip. We were so smug with ourselves to have planned a second night with Mark and Claire later on in our travels. The house is just out of town in a rural setting,... More

We booked La Metairie des Songes as one of the splurges on our 2 month trip through France, but it turned out to be one of the greatest values of our whole trip. Every bite of Mark’s cooking fills your mouth with a burst of delicious complex flavors and the wines were lovely and easy to afford. The food was... More

It's not a surprise that everyone raves about the food here. I think most return home with more photos of the meals than the beautiful Lot scenery! The food is surely very, very special, but so is everything else about this gorgeous place. Sitting grandly on top of its own beguiling little valley, the house oozes rustic charm, the decor...

We were en route to Barcelona by car and decided that La Metairie des Songes was an ideal stop over for a few nights to recharge. The room was very comfortable and Claire and Mark's attention to detail with all aspects of stay was first class. The bed was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Our welcome was most appreciated after... More
