Merci, Adri et Simone, pour un séjour parfait chez vous.
Vous nous avez accueilli si chaleureusement et avec tel soin- vous êtes des hôtes extraordinaires !

This experience for us will be very hard, if not impossible, to surpass. It would be our great fortune to be able to visit again. Thank you and best wishes.

We have been coming to France for driving holidays since 2001 and have stayed at maybe 300 chambre
d’hôtes but this one at Simones and Adri’s place is the best ever! Its perfect and we rate it 100%.
Also we came upon it by chance, stayed one night and needed no hesitation to stay another two!!
Thank you too Simone and Adri for your kind hospitality and friendly manner.

Thank you for the nice experience.

It has been like be in a piece of paradise for one day.

Now we are going back to the life in busy centre but we will keep this moment for long time.


Viele Dank für alles, we felt like at home.

We were lost in France, and after 17 hours of driving tired and weary, we saw a sign "Chambres d' hôtes". After checking our phrase book we followed and found "AlavalA" which must mean "paradise" because it is wonderful.

Our hosts Simone and Adri are fantastic. We were looked after like we were one of the family.

They are so welcoming, the house is perfect, the area so peaceful, we are thinking of moving in next week!! (only joking)

We feel privaleged to be the first English people to stay here. We will recommand this lovely place to all we known, or may keep France's best kept secret to ourselves.

We wish Simone and Adri all the best for the future.

Thank you for everything.

Up till this moment we had only once the opportunity to receive English speaking guests so we like to give you some more impressions of AlavalA by a translation of some quotes from our guest book. (originally written in Dutch, French and German)

... You have welcomed us with warmth and attention...

... Small bouquets of spring in the room...

... This in addition to the comfort of the room and the friendly atmosphere around the table...

... Your welcome was relaxed and enjoyable. Your kitchen even more. Your place is nice...

... As though we only could stay for a short time we have been treated like stars...

... great room and wonderful diner, we definitely come back...

... Our quest for an overnight stay has finally finished at your place. We certainly do not regretted it. You have spoiled us wonderfully. When we came back to you after a day of working in our own "house", we were welcomed with a glass and a snack. We found the food very nice...

... The room and bathroom are excellent, a lovely bath...

... We have spent some wonderful days with you…

... Your carefully prepared table d 'hôtes was a real "Auvergnian" delight on the tongue.
And the eye for all those fun details, so very much to make us feel at home (... the mistletoe), really super.
We will have fun thinking back on these few days "before Christmas"...

... Unfortunately it was only for 1 night, but it will certainly not be the only one...
... We have greatly enjoyed the very tasty food...

... beautiful rooms with beautiful views, delicious food, etc...

... Thanks again for the warm welcome and care during our stay...
... The rooms are beautiful!...

... plenty to go for a ride by bike and find all nice places of interest in the area. We had "La Rose" for two weeks...

... It was no problem for us to make it worth while this two weeks...

... and the table d'hôtes was delicious and varied every night!...

... Thanks for your hospitality, we had a tasteful dinner and slept wonderfully in this oasis of tranquillity...

... For us it was paradise on earth. Not only a nice room with great bath but we also felt taken care of with love...

... We try to get back...
