    Amazing hosts and incredible place. We loved our stay here. Perfect local trips for the most beautiful food and surrounding villages. A wonderful hosts table with other guests (which is optional) was fantastic in the garden overlooking the valley below. Highly recommend

    Chapeau! - Le Chat

    Thank you Marie and Alain for a very memorable stay. It was not for the lovely room with a brilliant view, nor the chic décor or your beautiful garden. No, we have rarely made to feel so welcome. From the wine tasting to the delectable table d'hote you embraced us with your generous hospitality and I urge any reader who has the chance to partake.

    Stayed 2 nights in May 2019

    5/5 Excellent

    Fabulous B&B. Fab location.

    This stay exceeded our expectations. The location and the town are very special. Our room looked over the valley and was extremely well appointed. Comfortable bed, really good bathroom, fabulous view. Car parking easy (September) on street outside. Our hosts were lovely. Breakfast excellent.

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Not criticism - comments for future travellers. Our room (fab) was up very steep stairs. Watch the 'coffee table' - I still have bruised painful leg

    Truly magical place in the historical centre

    When you choose to stay at a guest house in a historical village as gorgeous as Cordes, you want your stay to be memorable and this one surely was. Not only because the medieval house is stunning and beautifully decorated, but also and mainly because the hosts are fantastic. They will make you feel at home and if you are lucky enough to share a dinner with them (they are both excellent home cooks and will prepare you the best food with locally sourced ingredients!), then you can find out about their fascinating story while drinking some local wine in the garden with view. Most certainly the best place to stay in Cordes.

    Pros: everything

    Cons: perfection needs no improvement

    Location: in the middle of the historical village of Cordes
