“FANTASTIC! THE MEALS ARE TO DIE FOR!!!!!”
Reviewed June 16, 2011

We stayed at this beautiful property for three nights and found it to be a great central position from which to explore the many great sights in the area. You do need a car if you're staying here, but the peace and quiet was sensational. Clare and Mark are great hosts and nothing is too much trouble. You MUST eat in every night, Mark's meals are nothing short of magnificent. By far the best food we had during our month in France. Different creations each nighte were an absolute delight. This was a hidden gem and we're so glad we found it on trip advisor. Make sure you include it in your stay in SW France!!!!

Recently stayed for just 1 night with evevning meal here at La Metairie des Songes near Gourdon , France. The location benefits from the stunning views over the well kept gardens down into the valley. The accomodation is excellent and has been finished off to a very high standard. The owners cannot do enough for you. i only wish i had stayed for for than the one night on my journey north.The hig point of a stay here is the food , which is simply exceptional. I ate with my familly outside on a beautiful summers evening not knowing what to expect. From the moment the hors d'oeuvres appeared we knew we were in for something special. We were not mistaken. the meal was superb and our hosts kept deliverying with each course. you could feel the passion of the owners in everything they did. I cannot praise them enough. You have to visit.

La Metairie des Songes is an amazing Chambres d’Hôtes near Gourdon. The gorgeous stone-built ‘Quercynoise’ is located overlooking a peaceful valley on a quiet country road. We were delighted with the double room Degas - very well appointed with a spacious en-suite shower room (amazing value at €60 per night).
Absolute highlight of the stay was the outstanding food. The weather was lovely each evening, so we sat out in the garden and indulged in four courses of Michelin standard food and local wines. The breakfasts were also top class with gorgeous fruit salad and pastries.
Mark and Clare are most helpful with recommendations of walks in the area and general information. La Metairie des Songes is a very special place indeed - we will most certainly be returning.
