“She really needs help”
Reviewed August 11, 2009

What looked like an iddilic place to stay turned out to be a nightmare. Had to leave overnight. Mrs. O so gently Gayte in reality seems to be a real lunatic.
When she suddenly comes yelling to you room in the hot afternoon it was about 37 degrees C. while taking a nap, and tells you that you have to leave because the rooms are only available at night. Sooooorrryyy ???? Did I hear that right or am I dreaming ....no unfortunately it is reality. After trying to reason with her, to find out the motive behind this attitude, which seemded almost impossible whe had to conclude that Madam is nuts, don 't understand how she can run a chambre d'hotes. She really needs help in my opinion because if you tell your guests to check out because she cannot go out and leave her house alone to do her things, well then do not run a guest house. Please !
Do not be fooled by her nice web-site, do not go there it is really not worth your money.

We booked in to stay at Le Presbytere En Provence as it looked like an authentic place to stay. Despite emailing the owner Marie many times, and her emailing back with the name of the room we were to stay in, we arrived after driving 6 hours from Sarlat to be told that she didn't have our booking and was fully booked. After pulling out a print-out of her email to me confirming our booking, she kept pointing to the word arriving - I said yes, arriving. I say if you can't read English well enough to know what the word arriving means - you shouldn't welcome English-speaking guests! I speak a bit of French but didn't hear the word pardon once - or any offer to help us find alternative accommodation - despite it being 6pm and dark!!! The place looked pretty run down and the signage really bad - it was a fluke we saw it. You've been warned!
