James is very easy going and made me very welcome. Beautiful house in a fantastic setting close to the Lot -one of those wide grand French rivers. Nice walks nearby and a lovely drive from Bergerac airport. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated. Would recommend this as a first stop to anyone touring Lot/Tarn/Garonne area.
Had a lovely stay with James . The house is magnificent and in a lovely part of the world , I would reccommend it to anyone
We stopped just one night but glad we did. The B&B was centrally located in this beautiful village in a wonderful part of France. The impressive old mill house is huge and the hosts have renovated it all themselves! James and Di were very warm and welcoming and really helpful with good recommendations for restaurants and Vineyards to visit. Breakfast was nice in their large dinning room.
James und Di waren tolle Gastgeber, das Haus wunderbar, es entsprach voll unseren Erwartungen. Das Frühstück war reichhaltig und gut. Wir kommen gerne wieder!
Nous avons été bien accueillis par James et Di .
James connait les bons plans alentours et il sera ravi, j’en suis sûr, de vous les communiquer si vous le sollicitez.
Je remercie tout particulièrement Di pour les moments passés ensemble à bavarder dans le petit salon.
Le petit-déjeuner était si bon que nous n’avons pas regretté de n’avoir pu le prendre dans le jardin, pour cause de pluie.
D’autant que nous avons pu rencontrer alors d’autres invités très sympathiques venus d’Australie.
La chambre était spacieuse et bien préparée pour accueillir notre famille de quatre personnes .
Le village est particulièrement calme, mais plein de charme.
Nous n’avons passé qu’une nuit, mais nous garderons un bon souvenir de cette halte.
Nous conseillons sans retenue cette maison d’hôtes, et souhaitons une bonne continuation à James et Di dans la suite de leur aventure.
Suzana et sa famille
Nous avons passé un agréable moment à la maison Delmas. James est un hôte exceptionnel et très attentionné pour ses invités. La maison est idéalement située pour passer une nuit paisible.
Nous avons pris le petit déjeuner au jardin. Les croissants frais ont fait notre bonheur !
Nous recommandons définitivement cet endroit.

About the Host, James
I am interested in architecture and old buildings, anything and everything interests me consequently am an expert at none.
My current house is an ongoing project the main part of which has been restored, as always with old houses there is always more to do.
Living in France is an ideal, with excellent food and wine to be enjoyed in the region with the benefit of good weather. We enjoy a picnic and swimming at one of the many swimming lakes in the area particularly in the warm summer evenings. The walking in the area is excellent
