“French home cooked food at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

It was the middle of September 2013 and the weather wasnt great so rather than cook at the tent we decided to wander into the village and chanced upon Le Maison Tranquille. The restaurant is clean and fresh with tiled floor and recently painted and the food was simply divine.So impressed we ate here 3 nights on the run. My favourites included boeuf bourguignon and tart au citron but the whole thing was top dollar. Cooked fresh and home made, you cannot beat it. Let me tell you he even made a curry as a special request for the day after visit. Thats service. The locals eat here and thats a good sign. The atmosphere is great and the chef is a "larger than life" character with a dry sense of humour. It s not expensive either, if anything the prices are too low for the quality on offer. Open all year, I am told. The owners, by the way, are British. Suprised? I was.

We stumbled upon this excellent little hotel as we drove through the Gorges de Tarn in France. We were given the family room as we hadn't booked and that was the only room available and we were very grateful! The room was clean, comfortable and well equipped - it was great to be able to make a cup of tea after a long day on the road. We dined in the restaurant - very casual, chatting to the other guests and the meal & wine were delicious. Breakfast was delightful, just what one needed to start the day. The owners were very friendly, thoughtful and accommodating. I wish we could have spent longer there as the village was so pretty and the hotel fabulous!

Room Tip: Try to book ahead as this type of hotel gets booked up.

Easy to find right on the main route through the village, quiet location, some rooms have a view over the Tarn river and valley. The English owners Jess and Linda are very easy to get on with and made us feel very welcome. Our tasty meal was cooked by 'chef' Jess and served in the cosy little restaurant with wood burning stove in the corner - a welcome sight on a chilly February evening. There is a small lounge overlooking the Tarn where coffee and alcohol is available. Breakfast was continental fresh and simple, alternative breakfasts are available at an extra cost.
We enjoyed our short stay at this hotel. No soap or shower gel is provided so remember to take your own. Thanks Linda and Jess for a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Not all rooms overlook the Tarn so you would need to request one when you book.

We stayed here for one night as part of a tour round France. It is a shame we could not stay longer as the view from the room out to the river was lovely and the room was bright and spacious and was immaculate. The shower with jets and rainshower was a nice touch, and the nets on the windows meant we could sleep with window open all night.

The owners were friendly and chatty and served up a delicious three course menu on the terrace for a bargain price.

Lovely place for a short break.
