“Perfect B&B”
Reviewed August 21, 2011

Esperaza and its immediate surroundings are a dream. Roy and Jo are the perfect hosts and all the rooms are beautiful. Walking, cycling and fun on the river in the heat of the day was met by the very warm welcome and Roy offering cold beer or a glass of Rose on our return. Quite exceptional. The perfect B&B.

As well as agreeing with what others have said about large rooms, good location, modern bathrooms, etc., I'd like to add that one of the real benefits to me was the knowledge of the area that Jo and Roy are willing to share.

Their information, for instance, about Resistance activities in the region gave my visit, and my hiking, a new and important dimension.

When I get the opportunity to do so (not easy for someone living in South Carolina), I plan to return.

Stayed here while visiting nearby Rennes-le-Chateau. The building is exquisite, tons of personality, with a great location right on the town square, and a regular street market just outside the door. The "Table d'Hotes" was excellent, both for the food served and the conversation with the hosts, who were well acquainted with the legends and lore of the area.

Being a regular to the area, we were on one of our scheduled visits.

We really enjoyed the stay at La Maison de la Riviere. The rooms are excellent, as is the breakfast. You couldn't ask for more .....

I would definately recommend a stay here.

This family holiday to this beautiful scenic region of France was made extra special due our wonderful hosts Jo and Roy. We could not find fault with this welcoming, comfortable and relaxing hotel/guest house. Everything we could need was available, great breakfast's, local maps, internet access, picnic accessories, etc. Our hosts knowledge of the local area was really helpful in enabling us to really enjoy our time away and relax. Also, a definite highlight was Jo's wonderful evening meal!!

Friendly, welcoming and helpful hosts, with good local knowledge. Lovely spacious room with balcony/flowers overlooking river. Village location with historical interest/museums. Free parking available nearby. Central for sightseeing mountain areas and gorges, with quite breathtaking scenery. Breakfast and dinner to be recommended. Good food and excellent service. Would not hesitate to return again.
