A surprising and unique spot, decorated (recently refurbished) with so much love and care, delicious breakfast with rhubarb jam from the garden, beautiful music - even in the garden, soft beds. Highly recommended.

This B/B chambre d'hôte is run by two middle aged men.
Don't dare mention to the owner the uncomfortable bed or the tiny cubicle shower which overflows or the noisy macerator WC that you will hesitate to flush at night or risk waking up the whole household ! (All rooms have the same type).
Any (constructive) criticism will be abruptly and rudely rebuffed and you will not be welcome in the establishment.
The English owner only wants positive comments !

Room Tip: Room 1 gives onto main road. All 4 rooms have tiny shower cubicle & washbasin and a macerator wc...

We stopped here for one night on our way back from Barcelona, and will stop again when we drive through France. A very friendly welcome, great rooms and exceptional breakfast. Plus Douglas the dog! Add it to your itinerary.

My wife and I stayed overnight in Mid October. Graham and Robert welcomed us as old friends and we thought
we were lucky to find Le Rocher. The room was great and the bed comfortable. They have restored both house
and garden to their high standards. When I went to the car early the next morning, I spied the croissants ready to go into the oven. Breakfast was great and sadly we were on our way.

We stayed at Le Rocher for four nights whilst visiting my brother-in-law. The room was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. And feather pillows - luxury in a chambre d'hote. It was slightly cramped for four nights and no wardrobe or chest of drawers but I realise that most of their visitors are one night stopovers en route to or from ferries. Graham offered us extra hangers but we managed. Breakfast was a delight with proper fresh orange juice and home-made croissants and the single large dining table gave us a chance to chat with other visitors. Unfortunately for us, the weather wasn't too good so we didn't have much chance to enjoy the beautiful gardens and Graham's amazing sound system with gentle classical music emanating softly and unseen from the foliage. And with the pound/euro exchange in our favour this was excellent value for money.
Most nights we ate at 23 Grande Rue - see separate review.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Effortless hospitality and the balance between heritage and modern living make Le Rocher a unique Bed & Breakfast experience. Le Rocher was built in 1927 by a Parisien family the Maureys as a hunting lodge; it is perfectly nestled in the stunning valley where the family would hunt wild boar and deer. The house has a certain local notoriety and when built caused quite a stir because of its style which is not typical of the region and the type of building materials used. The name Le Rocher "the rock" refers to the rare volcanic material used in its construction and is to this day the subject of study by local schools. Le Rocher continues to evolve and we enjoy sharing our home and its development with our guests. ... more   less
