We returned to A La Bonne Vie as we were completing on the purchase of a property nearby. Our intention was to only stay for two nights as we had the keys to our new holiday home after the second night but decided that the comfort and food on offer was too great a lure so stayed for four!

We booked for one nights B&B and evening meal and were made very welcome at A La Bonne Vie Auberge. A comfortable bedroom with ensuite shower and a small guest’s sitting room with TV and comfortable chairs. Carol & Carl made us very welcome and we had a lovely dinner with a choice of dishes and breakfast. Thank you

We were met by the owners of La Bonne Vie, Carl and Carol Walker, just as they were finishing the lunchtime service. What a lovely welcome we received, we were shown our room then were asked if we wanted to relax after an horrendous journey in gale force wind and rain. We were taken into a delightful sitting area with... More

We have eaten in La Bonne Vie many times when we lived nearby, Carol,s lovely smile and Carls excellent cooking just make you want to go back time and again to enjoy both the food and take in the beautiful view over the countryside from the restaurant,s panoramic windows. Definitely not a place to drive past without stopping, thank you... More

Whilst house hunting in the area we spent four nights at the A La Bonne Vie. We had a room at the rear with fantastic views stretching as far as Niort which was about 25 miles away. The room and en-suite bathroom were immaculate. Carol and Carl seem to have thought of everything that their guests might need, including a... More

Thank you Carl and Carol, yet again a fantastic night of amazing food and great company. Our favourite restaurant! Off the beaten track, but that's what makes it special as you'd never imagine such a top class restaurant in a quiet, sleepy French village. Magnifique!!

Just returned from a week's stay at La Bonne Vie and we loved it. Carol and Carl could not have made us feel more welcome and were very attentive to whatever we needed. They were really good company too. Carl is an excellent chef and we ate delicious food from a small but varied menu. Very much up to the... More

We have a holiday home in France and try to visit the restaurant at La Bonne Vie every time we are there. It is always a pleasure to go. The food is excellent, the service is great, both Carol and Carl are very friendly and welcoming. The set lunchtime menu is really good value and we haven't found better.

We absolutely adore this place, the food is amazing! Carl and Carol work very hard and it shows. The staff are very attentive and Carol is an amazing host. We love the fact that Carl (chef) comes out for a chat too. We would come back to France just to eat here. Love it, love it, love it! Clare, Adam... More
