Fabulous Auberge in a beautiful setting. The hosts made us very welcome despite arriving when their restaurant was full of local people. The decor in the rooms was gorgeous and the ensuite facilities were superior. The menu for dinner was comprehensive and the food was to die for. Our breakfast was superb served in the restaurant with the sun rising...

We returned to A La Bonne Vie as we were completing on the purchase of a property nearby. Our intention was to only stay for two nights as we had the keys to our new holiday home after the second night but decided that the comfort and food on offer was too great a lure so stayed for four! We...

We were met by the owners of La Bonne Vie, Carl and Carol Walker, just as they were finishing the lunchtime service. What a lovely welcome we received, we were shown our room then were asked if we wanted to relax after an horrendous journey in gale force wind and rain. We were taken into a delightful sitting area with...

We have eaten in La Bonne Vie many times when we lived nearby, Carol,s lovely smile and Carls excellent cooking just make you want to go back time and again to enjoy both the food and take in the beautiful view over the countryside from the restaurant,s panoramic windows. Definitely not a place to drive past without stopping, thank you...

Whilst house hunting in the area we spent four nights at the A La Bonne Vie. We had a room at the rear with fantastic views stretching as far as Niort which was about 25 miles away. The room and en-suite bathroom were immaculate. Carol and Carl seem to have thought of everything that their guests might need, including a...

Thank you Carl and Carol, yet again a fantastic night of amazing food and great company. Our favourite restaurant! Off the beaten track, but that's what makes it special as you'd never imagine such a top class restaurant in a quiet, sleepy French village. Magnifique!!
