Clos des Pierres Blanches
Reviewed 18 July 2017

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Clos des Pierres Blanches for a long weekend and we were completely taken back by the wonderful hospitality from its charming hosts, Gilbert and Veronica. They totally made our holiday and we couldn’t recommend staying here highly enough.

The house is utterly beautiful, surrounded by views of the local vineyards and stunning gardens. Flowers are everywhere and the setting is out of this world. They have 3 rooms to let in a converted old barn that they did up themselves. The rooms are well equipped and spacious (we had a tour of all 3 so we saw them all). In ours there was a wrought iron four-poster bed which was very comfortable and a huge bathroom with a large walk-in shower. There was ample space and it was beautifully rustic as they kept the original wooden beams in the ceiling.

When we arrived we were welcomed like old friends and were offered a lovely glass of something refreshing to enjoy with Gilbert and Veronica on the patio. Gilbert has an excellent offering of the local wines, liquors and some very tasty pinot; put it like this, we were well watered throughout our stay!

We had dinner at the house on two of our three nights. Gilbert is a fabulous BBQ chef and both meals were delicious. Fresh, home grown mushrooms in garlic were offered alongside our perfectly BBQ’d entrecote steak with a fresh garden salad, and a mouth-watering apple tart was for pudding on one night – YUM! They were also very accommodating and rustled us up a simple but delicious lunch of bread, a selection of cheeses, hams and tomato salad before we raced off to a wedding. Enjoying that while looking out over their garden and the views beyond was quite something.

If you’re looking for somewhere very comfortable, with great rooms, a lovely swimming pool and a view, and not to mention fantastic hosts and delicious food, look no further; Clos des Pierres Blanches is for you!

Merci beaucoup Gilbert et Veronique! xxx

Gilbert and Veronique have made a stunning hostelry, superbly decorated with quality finish. The views are stunning, the hospitality matches the views, we had a fantastic stay and hope to go back soon. Well worth a visit.

Veronique and Gilbert have transformed what was a barn and out buildings into a haven. The attention to detail and the quality of the fixtures and fittings is amazing. They have thought of everything. Although you are in you own room and have your own space you are really part of the family. They obviously love entertaining their guests. This is a 5 star luxury without the 'formality'. All 3 rooms are of exceptional quality. Rubis sleeps 2 only, Saponite up to 3 and Amethyste up to 4. All look out over the surrounding vineyards with the pool within a few steps of all the rooms. Unfortunately we could only stay 1 night. We would of preferred more. Dinner on the night we stayed was a B B Q and Gilbert was the chef. Aperitifs and wine is included in the cost. Depending on weather dinner is either outside or inside. Veronique and Gilbert ate with us and the other guests at one table and it was a delight to converse with everyone and also improve the French at the same time. We will certainly return to enjoy their company once again.

Room Tip: All rooms are of exceptional quality.

We spent 5 days recently here and it was fantastic! The breakfast was great. Veronique and Gilbert were perfect hosts and were fantastic to our 2 year old son. The entire place was spotlessly clean. We will definitely be back!
The only thing i would advise others to be cautious of is there were many wasps around the pool (maybe 20+) which resulted in a few stings.

Veronique and Gilbert were gracious and justifiably proud hosts what they have done with the old farmhouse and buildings is Wow. We had the room that overlooks the pool and vineyards if you get the chance book it the room was like one big big piece of very tasteful art. We had a dinner and wine there that was very good also many choices in Cognac about 20 mins away. If there is one small criticism the choice at breakfast could be greater... Overall an outstanding B&B we apparently had the honor of being the first kiwis to visit
