Loved L'Hirondelle!
Such a nice place to stay! Gail and Chris were warm, informative, hospitable, knowlegeable, and good cooks! The room was impeccably clean and comfortable. We were in Saint Matthieu for an event at the Chateau, and I was concerned the local choice of lodgings would mean a place that was less than perfect - but not so. Very, very nice and all I could have wished!

Delightful Stay!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at L'Hirondelle Chambres d'Hotes. Gaile and her husband were welcoming and helpful, our room was very clean, quiet and comfortable, and the breakfast gave us good energy to begin our day. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone!

Warm and Wonderful Stay
Although we were there only overnight, we found Chris and Gail wonderful and accommodating. The rooms were clean and well furnished and quiet. Really a delightful place to stay; wish we could have spent more time there.

Two fabulous hosts
Arrived at L'Hirondelle after a very long journey and was welcomed with a nice cuppa. My room, food and hosts were excellent. I can definitely recommend a stay. Chris and Gail looked after me very well. Fabulous.

A pleasurable stay
We have stayed several times at L'hirondell and have never been disappointed. This time was no exception. We cannot think of anything negative to say. In any area. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We recommend you book in for an evening meal, the food is comparable to any restaurant. We would recommend to anyone.
