I stayed at La Forge de Montolieu for 10 days. The location of the establishment is a short walk from the Montolieu village, the surrounding woods and river add to the quiet, peaceful and relaxing experience.
The owners, Charles and Loare, are friendly hosts that helped me feel at home right from the start. There is one special thing I would like to point out: Charles' cooking. I have traveled all over the world and enjoyed many meals, but his cooking is simply the best. I miss the richness of taste of his gastronomical masterpieces.
If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful and friendly place and love to enjoy superb cooking, La Forge de Montolieu is the right choice.

The newly renovated bedrooms offer a sober, but colourful elegance, along with their pretty individual en-suite bathrooms. The domain is less than five minutes from the village, and at close proximity to all that the area has to offer... The hosts, Charles Cowen, photographer, gardener and musician, and Laure, book dealer at Montolieu - "Village du Livre", greet their guests with a warm welcome, in a relaxing and family-oriented surroundings.
