with grateful thanks to all our lovely visitors


"A haven of peace!
We spent 3 nights in this bed & breakfast and met Claudia and Paul, two friendly people who took great care of us. The accommodation is super clean and very tastefully decorated. We loved the breakfast every morning!
It's easily an hour's drive each day to visit the nearby chateaux and banks of the Loire, but well worth it if you're looking for a little cocoon to recharge your batteries. The roads are beautiful and in the sunshine day trips are a great option.
I must stress the quality of the welcome we received, it's been a long time since I've had that via airbnb. Many thanks again to Claudia and Paul and also to Doug for their kindness and the richness of our conversations! Great times. See you soon!

"What a great, unforgettable week I have had here. Slept wonderfully in a beautiful room (I felt like Sissi) in a very quiet green environment. Also delicious food. Really a very special recommendation and definitely worth repeating.."

"Claudia and Paul welcomed us as friends, not as guests. It's the first time we've had such an experience in a bed and breakfast. Charming setting, great weather, excellent food, exceptional welcome. What more could you ask for? Bravo. We were delighted with our stay with you and will certainly recommend your establishment if we have friends or family coming to the area!"

"A magnificent studio in a stunning arrangement of buildings, run by a top international couple who serve outstanding food and beverage. We couldn’t have dreamed of more."

"Once again, a big thank you to both of you for this beautiful moment. A very nice address in a secret valley. Claudia & Paul's welcome is only part of the reason that we immediately felt so good. We also had the chance to taste Claudia's exquisite cooking: a delicate and rare moment in the shade of the lime tree. We had to leave, but with the feeling that we were leaving new friends. An address of charm and taste that absolutely bears its name very well : "Divine!"

"The best airbnb we have ever been in! Claudia and Paul are very friendly, we had dinner with them and the meal was very good with vegetables from the garden. The breakfast is perfect! Very friendly hosts with our 16-month old daughter who even got to feed the chickens. The location is very good and we enjoyed the morning walks along the river la Dive. Very nice room, tastefully decorated and different from what you see everywhere. Ideal for resting and disconnecting from everyday life!

"A guest room like you find less and less ...
Ideal to discover the region or to relax during a business trip. The room has all the necessary comforts and is located in an outbuilding, perfect for privacy especially when you have to come back late. Our hosts were charming and caring and their pets (dog and cats) were also very welcoming. We felt at home! :)
We were delighted to share an evening meal with Paul & Claudia. Their food is healthy, creative and the ingredients are largely from their organic micro-farm. The sweet and savoury breakfast was also a treat. If you are reading this and have never tried the famous english marmite ... feel free to put the word out to Paul. He will be happy to prepare some toasts for you ... ;)
We recommend this accommodation without hesitation and will be back!"

"A warm welcome - Paul and Claudia, you are charming hosts. The environment is peaceful with its proximity to nature (what a lovely garden!). Finally the meals, which were very appropriate to the warm weather."


J. L. Remy & D. Bon - France



It all started with a lovely warm welcome on arrival. Even the cats and dog are welcoming, and great fun. We elected to have a meal prepared by Claudia, and are so glad we did. It was such a rich and rewarding experience and Claudia and Paul are such excellent hosts. It was like being with old friends.
The accommodation is excellent and charming, displaying to great effect Paul’s considerable building skills and Claudia’s flair and innate gifts with soft furnishings. It has imagination and flair and is spotlessly clean. We very much admire what Claudia and Paul are doing with the property and the lifestyle they have embraced and highly recommend a visit. The whole experience was a delight"

"We had marvellous days at La Divine in your comfortable guest room with its artistic ambience and beautiful decoration. It was a real surprise to find this high level of comfort in such an old building. The stylish shower room, the tea set with the porcelain teacups, the beautiful view when descending the stairs, the leisurely breakfast and delicious home made tapas and Indian curry dishes. It all gave us the feeling of being far away from the busyness of work and city life. We have really enjoyed our stay and your kind hospitality and will surely come again. In the meantime we will spread the news of a lovely guest house in France to our friends!"

W. & C. de Weger - NL

"We loved the location and the interior decoration of the studio apartment. It’s a cozy private comfortable place, well thought out with a great little bathroom. We also loved the meals; the fresh food was wonderful and we appreciated that vegetarian/vegan was no problem whatsoever. Last but not least: we loved our hosts and let’s not forget Doug the dog! Just a fine place for some quality quiet time in beautiful surroundings."

J. Stansberry & J. Benschop - USA


"From the moment we arrived, we could tell that Claudia and Paul have found their ideal home in the perfect environment. House and accommodation were renovated with love and care; the garden was full of life and the hospitality couldn't have been better. We will definitely visit La Divine again!"

A. Daemen & M. Gerritse - NL

"Beautifully decorated. Very comfortable bed and super tea making facilities with china cups and saucers. Shower room equipped with a good shower, heated towel rail, shelf space and hooks. Charming environment and lovely food."
