This was a revisit after 6 years and the hotel is every bit as classically French as we remembered. Wonderful position on the lake, olde worlde decor but beautifully maintained and scrupulously clean. The restaurant is right on the water's edge with marvellous views and the menu varied and copious. Mme Charlotteaux is charming as are all the staff that... More

Perfect setting, very quiet and a comfortable room. Slightly dated bathroom, but very clean. Lying in bed, looking across the lake, clear starry sky, what more could you want? ...... Tea/coffee making facility in the room (this would have made my stay perfect) we ate twice in restaurant which was good, but limited menu, and on two nights only set... More

We had an excellent meal here this evening. The food was magnificent, the best we've had on holiday this week, and enjoyed this beautiful lakeside setting. We thought that it was very good value too. It's worth booking as seems quite popular, would definitely recommend.

Ideal location to take in the local area. You can rent bikes and the immediate vicinity is pretty flat too. We booked the rooms over the road. No aircon and there is road noise, but nice rooms and lovely garden outside. The property is well kept, spotless and there is daily maid service and new linen. In the height of... More

This is an hotel a little off the beaten track in a great location on the side of a beautiful lake in the Aquitane region. Nicole and her staff are very attentive to all your needs and the restaurant has an uninterrupted view of the lake. The food is superb, but be aware that the menu is a little restricted... More

We came across this hotel when looking to break up our journey south. The hotel itself was fully booked but they also have a house across the road divided into guest bedrooms, each with its own patio area and furniture, surrounded by a large enclosed garden which would be ideal for families with young children. The rooms are fresh, nicely... More
