We were on a 6 week trip to Europe carrying backpacks and mixing train travel with hiring rental cars - on a budget. We hadn’t pre-booked this night but found La Fontaine by following their signs on the side of the road – and we are very glad that we did. Colette and Serge run their gite in the beautiful countryside on the outskirts of St Pierre Eynac and their accommodation has a range of room arrangements with a large central kitchen/dining area. Bring your own bedding or hire from them. Three course dinner with wine, bed and breakfast for two cost us 73 euro. Neither speak English (and we don’t speak French) so we kept our little English-French dictionaries close. Both are extremely hospitable and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Dinner was home-grown and delicious. We had a lovely time talking with Serge after dinner and still have the doodled placemat as a treasured souvenir.
