Never, in all of our travels, have we been so warmly welcomed as we were by Martin and Sile upon on arrival at Le Presbytere. Arriving on a very cold and rainy afternoon in March, their offer of a hot drink and an invitation to join them around the fire felt like something from a storybook. We were the weary travelers arriving at a wonderful refuge.
Their historic old house has been thoughtfully restored yet maintains its traditional French country appeal. The guest rooms are charming, the beds are comfortable, and most importantly given the weather, our room was warm and cozy, with a lovely view across the village that stretched for miles.
And then there was the food...so carefully planned and prepared and served as if you've been invited to dinner with old friends. Martin is excited to cook for his guests and his passion comes through in the food. Everything from the roasted lamb and local carrots at dinner to the homemade bread and jams at breakfast is delicious. Conversation flows easily, and you think how fortunate you are to be part of this dinner party. Martin and Sile are excellent hosts, anxious to share their local knowledge, suggest sights to see even in the rain, and do anything they can to make your visit memorable.
