Price Per Night:
Situated in the picturesque village of Villebois-Lavalette in SW France, Maison du Couvent is an up-market, full-service chambres d'hôtes/B&B, offering beds, breakfast, lunches and 3-course dinners served with wine.
B&B Description:We're Don & Trisha McCrae. In 2000 we bought and restored Maison du Couvent (convent house) a 17th century four-storey house, that's described by local historians as being the oldest house in Villebois-Lavalette.
We then acquired an adjoining piece of land complete with an old barn, which we have elegantly renovated into a modern chambres d'hôtes/B&B, with an authentic rural French charm. Don also runs photo workshops in the on-site studio, so if you'd like to get involved - see here for details.
Whether you stay in our chambres d'hôtes/B&B for one night, or for one week, you'll always get a warm welcome, up-market accommodation and fabulous food - mais oui, se détendre et se restaurer...relax and restore!

A Peaceful and Pleasant base to travel the Charente
We chose to stay here because it is in a charming rural area of France, but yet is a day trip from so many noteworthy attractions. You can see several castles of the Loire valley on your way from Paris or drive from Villebois-Lavalette. Cognac, Bordeaux and Saint Emilion are nearby as are Limoges, and the caves of Lascaux. The real plus to all of this is the beautiful scenery and the dozens of tiny picturesque villages, you'll encounter on your day trips. The hosts are charming and madam is fine chef. The prices were very reasonably and there is also an in house school of photography.
