"Simply Lovely! Paula's food was excellent throughout, from homemade granola to excellent and healthy salads and delicious variety of dishes in the evening, and excellently catered for Vegan and vegetarian guests too. But more importantly Paula is simply a lovely welcoming person and an attentive host. Great to meet you!"


Here in Pressigny we are constantly on the lookout for all things Uniquely French and as much as we like the untapped rural beauty of the area we can't help but want to share it with the rest of the world. This is why we would love to encourage writers, creators and volunteers to come taste our corner of the stunning Deux-Sèvres so that you can then help, create or share some of the Uniquely French magic.

“Great Home Cooking! The best scrambled eggs in town; the best I've eaten in years! Loved the salads and soups, the warm, relaxed hospitality... fantastic. Vegetarians, vegans, carnivores, you won't go hungry because she covers all specs. Shame I have to go back to cooking for myself."
