This is a private Hotel and we had to take our own suitcases to the room. This seems to be coming more prevalent on this coach tour. We were fortunate we were on the first floor as it takes quite some time too get 46 persons luggage into their rooms . The organisation at check in was efficient. We found our room very small but adequate. Fortunately we were only here 12 hours and we didn't unpack at all. The room was very clean and the staff helpful. The breakfast was satisfactory and we were generally pleased to be leaving. I would not go there again solely because of the size of the room. Its location in the village was excellent.

... pastry was used to create a classic Napolean (or Mille-feuille). After lamb shanks (in Morrocan inspired sauce, falling off the bone) the passion fruit creme brulee was served with a raspberry sorbet - the contrasting flavours played beautifully against each other. To me, a well prepared creme brulee is absolute and undeniable perfection.
What a fantastic first day!
After a breakfast of freshly baked croissant, aromatic French cheese and saucisson, we dove right into making a praline pastry cream.
What followed was a tour of the major players of French pastry - puff pastry, pate sablee (to make a creme brûlée tart), choux pastry, profiteroles and crouqembouche. We even made a sourdough base bread (from apples!) to use later in the ...

Altogether 247 woman, 190 men and 205 children perished in the most awful circumstances.
Oradour now has a museum to commemorate the atrocity and the original village has been retained and is now a memorial. A new town has been built nearby.
We first visited the museum which is a collection of photo's regarding Hitlers rise to power, his subsequent conquest of most of ...
