Spent a couple of nights at this brilliant place, food was exceptional as were the rooms and hosts "Bill and Carol". Good cover for the bikes, good clean rooms, quiet surroundings and all at a very good price. I will definately stay there again and hope to do so next year sometime.

Found Bill and Carol at La Motte about 10 years ago on a round France motorcycle trip, and have been popping back every since. As testified to by other travellers - always a warm welcome, great food (definitely take up the half-board as the three course dinner is a delight after a day on the road) and very comfortable accommodation....

Character French property run by an English couple as an absolutely unique place to stay. Described as a B&B, we were delighted that we chose to stay half board. The three course evening meal with drinks was excellent. I am vegetarian and was well catered for. The meal was served like a dinner party, with all guests on one large...
