My family and I have just spent 2 weeks in the company of Bob and Lorraine Walker at their Chambre d'Hote in the Aveyron Gorge close to the lovely town of St Antonin Noble Val.
Travelling to stay in a new place for the all important big Summer Holiday is always nerve-wracking for many reasons but our hosts Bob and Lorraine were great - unflappable, welcoming and charming and helped us out of a potentially disatrous hole towards the end of our holiday for which we will always be grateful. Having two young sons 9 & 6 years with all of their particular peculiarities with food, sleeping boistrousness and just about every thing else can be stressful but not on this trip everything was taken easily in their stride.
As well as bed and breakfast - the beds and bedrooms were great - Lorraine offers dinner 2 or 4 courses this includes their company and wine/beer or any other beverages that one could choose.
The location is great and a beautiful space to unwind and also enjoy local activities walking, cycling, canoeing, pot-holing etc if you wish. Together with food and wine - it is France after all and also interesting towns and villages.
A highly enjoyable holiday in great place and highly recommended as a place to stay.
