“The Grand Tour. G & A Australia”
Reviewed 22 May 2012

We only stayed one night and hadn't originally planned to visit Cordes sur Ciel but we are so glad we did. Niko and Chris were fantastic hosts (a class act)...after driving in awful wet conditions, when we arrived it was lovely to be made so welcome ...there was a roaring fire in the lounge as we walked in .. The 300 year old home is fascinating and beautifully decorated ..we especially loved the well inside the house and our room was beautiful and more spacious than we had expected. We chose to have the "table d'hote". It was sensational (excellent quality food and wines) and it was great to meet the other guests. Breakfast was just as impressive. We definitely recommend La Maison au Puits.

Room Tip: We had Room 1 on the first floor with a view out to the street. No noise problems ..very quiet area...

A pleasant house with character where you feel at home straight away! we only spent one night but we slept very well and had a delicious breakfast served kindly by our very welcoming hosts. Good location in a quiet area near of Cordes. A very good value with an excellent ratio quality/price...

we spent 5 nights in Maison au Puits- it is an ideal and friendly place- good location on a quiet road at the foot of Cordes- a pretty 10 minutes walk onto the very top. No need to tantalize cars uphill through narrow lanes. A charming house, nicely and tastefully furnitured. But what counts even more- the friendly hosts, warm and cordial atmosphere, hundreds of helpful suggestions where to go, what to see, how to get there. 5 languages are spoken, all nations welcome. Very best cuisine we have been to during our trip, best Gaillac wines. It gave us a lot. We left the place richer than we came in.

We arrived at La Maison au Puits and were greeted by Christianne. We were shown to our room #4 and after looking around we realized that we had made a mistake. Unfortunately the room that we had was very basic and not the type of place that we usually stay at. I guess I relied on the trip advisor ratings and did not really research it enough.
The bathroom sink area was so tight that my husband had trouble shaving. There was nowhere near the sink to hang a towel and there was no soap. The bed was not very confortable and a light outside illuminated the room to make it difficult to sleep.
We had booked for two nights but checked out the following morning, even before breakfast as I did not want to stay another night. We felt bad because we have never had this happen to us before. Christianne asked why we were leaving and I just told her that this was just not a place that we felt confortable at and it was not
anything that she or anyone else had done. We just felt that this place was too basic for us.

We are very sorry that our chambre d'hôte was not the place that was the one for you . You've reservated 2 days , left without a reason , and left us without paying the full amount. Thank you very much !
