We reserved A Bois Mort as accommodation for some family members during our wedding at nearby Château de Saint Loup. From the very initial contact Richard went above and beyond to make sure that the guests had an enjoyable stay. They were all hugely impressed by the beautiful accommodation and location, the bubbly on arrival, all the small personal touches added to the property and couldn't stop talking about Richard as the perfect host! On a personal note, he provided us with wonderful tips on the best local food markets and suppliers for our wedding. Richard, we can't thank you enough and will definitely recommend your accommodation to everyone we know visiting the area.

We could not ask for more from our stay. Richard is the perfect Air BnB host and then some more. He was immediately there to greet us (despite us not giving an accurate arrival time beforehand) and showed us around the beautiful gite - the rooms were even nicer than the pics and there was everything we could need for a stay. We LOVED hanging out in the hot tub - which Richard kindly pre empted when we wanted to use and prepared for us to have a dip. It was also lovely to have the pool to cool off in. The house and gardens are idyllic with a few places to enjoy the morning or evening sun, with the chickens or cats pootling around beside you. Richard also offers food grown in his garden, home made bread etc - which was a lovely surprise. We loved Richard's company and enjoyed a few glasses of wine and meals together, he gave us great travel tips - not just for the local area but we also chatted about Scotland. Overall, 10/10 stay and we would love to return to see more of the area (we were visiting for a wedding so did not have as much free time as one normally might). We would thoroughly recommend a stay here.

Richard's little oasis is a amazing place to stay on your holiday. We stayed with our baby twin boys and there was everything there for us and more. The swimming pool was great for the babies and hot tub for us in the evenings. Richard is an excellent host with all the attention to detail. The private dining is also a lovely addition, delicious food at a great price. We would recommend Bois Mort to anyone.

My husband and I stayed at maison maurice a couple of weeks ago, the cottage is clean, has everything you need, a fantastically comfortable bed and a lovely shower room. I am in the hospitality industry and feel that most people need the accommodation clean and a good night's sleep, maison maurice ticked these boxes. We also had the use of a hot tub and an above ground swimming pool which was lovely. Richard is warm, welcoming and hospitable, the home made veg and fresh eggs and bread were wonderful.Richard recommended a visit to Oradur sur glane, it took approx 2 hrs to get there but roads are good and it is well worth it. Everthing you could ask for and a bit more, i think you wil be seeing us again Richard .

Accurately described, located in the very quiet hamlet of Bois Mort. Saint Loup, a few minutes drive away has shops and a market. The `Maison du Maurice` gite, was very clean, tidy and tastefully furnished throughout.The location is very quiet and rural. The pool was a great bonus. Richard,the owner, was very friendly and helpful, giving us lots of advice and local information. He also provides a range of excellent home made and local produce like jams and meats. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and recommend `Bois Mort` to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday in the french countryside . We hope to return. Thank you Richard. Regards Andy, Annie and Kate

Our overall impression of Maison du Maurice is as a authentically traditional home, in such a pretty hamlet providing all modern day facilities for folks on holiday. The properties and gardens cared for by the owner,Richard, can only be described as beautifully landscaped and lovingly tended. Richard is the perfect host which he achieves by mixing perfectly ,being in the background of your holiday day to day, changing to being immediately available when needed, this for example to give information and recommendation on the area, places of interest, etc. A brilliant balancing act. We used the dining option provided by Richard which we found comparable with high quality restaurants providing us with menus filled with local produce. Richards food was delicious.
We loved our stay and will definitely return. Susan & Brian

We had the most memorable stay at A Bois Mort and were truly sad to leave! Owner Richard was incredibly generous with his time, knowledge and attention to detail and made an exceptional addition to our holiday. The gite was bright, airy and spotless and as a passionate cook i was impressed with the comprehensiveness of the kitchen and equipment! Having said that, with the standard of Richards cooking we were more inclined to dine at his own, "Petite Cuisine" as often as possible! Delicious locally sourced produce, homemade with provenance, tradition and sustainability at its heart. We were free to use the gites back garden/terrace and roam the wonderful vegetable garden and fruiting trees which was yet another reflection of the owners passion and attention to detail. We had a 6 month old baby with us also and we were provided with a travel cot which was hugely helpful as they are cumbersome in an already packed car, as well as the option of a bottle steriliser! He really has thought of everything... down to the log burning hot tub! The gite is full of information on the region and Richard provided us with a wealth of experience and knowledge on where to go and where not to go. Recommendation being the best publicity we weren't let down once. We came away truly feeling immersed in the region. I could go on far longer but to be honest i am just counting the days to our next visit! Thank you Richard so much! We cant wait! Harry, Verity & Ottilie

We have relaxed in a lovely area, enjoyed barbecues just outside our door, slept well in this peaceful area and enjoyed the hot tub late at night watching the stars. The gite had everything we needed to enjoy our stay, it was tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean, well stocked and perfectly formed. The gardens were beautifully colourful with very interesting plants on which our host was knowledgeable All appliances, and there was everything you could want,worked well and the mobile signal was strong with great wifi Richard, our host was very warm,friendly and helpful, he even made us a wonderful meal one night, nothing was too much trouble to him in ensuring our stay was relaxing. He was also very knowledgeable about the area for visits, markets and shops We do so hope to return soon The best French gite we have ever had in fifteen years of visiting this area
