Gites Le Lancelot


We do our very best to provide our guests excellent service and we are proud of the great reviews we receive from them. We gladly share some of our guestbook comments:


The welcome, the availability, the possibility of cooking, the quality of the breakfast. But also the spacious bedroom, the elegant bathroom, the environment and the village.
Nothing. Everything was perfect.


Excellent welcome and spacious room. Excellent accueil et chambre spacieuse équipée d’un coin cuisine.


Exceptional. An extraordinary overnight stopover. The warm welcome, the magnificent site, the spacious family room, the very pleasant and generous breakfast … we will come back for sure!
Thank you.


Our room had great view over village square and landscape. Friday evenings during summer the square is center for small village market, music and outdoor dining. Join the fun and the friendly locals. By midnight the square is cleared and the streets quiet again. Breakfast was the classic french: coffee, juice, croissant and baguette with jam. No a/c but an effective fan in the room did the trick.


Our only regret was not staying longer….Wonderful little hotel on the medieval hilltop village of Ambierle right next to the Eglise of Saint Martin. We booked a room for four for a one night pitstop. It was very clean and comfortable and modern, which contrasted with the stunning views of the rustic village square and breathtaking landscape just out the window. The kids loved their loft, which was accessible by “private” (kid-sized) stairs. Likewise, we parents loved our privacy! In addition, the bathroom was inviting and the wifi was excellent (but that shouldn’t keep visitors from exploring Ambierle itself!).


A beautiful Gite in the centre of medieval Ambierle. We booked a studio apartment with kitchenette, which we were very happy with. The room is very tastefully decorated with authentic details. The beds were extraordinarily comfortable and waking up to a traditional French breakfast was a real joy. We made several great trips in this beautiful area. We visited some castles on the Loire, old medieval villages in the vicinity, fantastic hiking tours etc. In short, a beautiful place to relax and enjoy our holiday.(rating: 9)

Bos Family:

The rooms are wonderfully luxurious, with attention given to every small detail. Modern, stylish and a high level of comfort. The beds are comfortable and big. Well functioning Wi-Fi. Our 10 and 12 year olds in particular enjoyed the luxurious bathroom with the little soaps and soft towels. The service was excellent and very friendly. The downstairs restaurant is managed by two enthusiastic local ladies, who are passionate about cooking and prepare wonderful local dishes. In short, this place deserves a recommendation!

A quiet place in the middle of the village, friendly and very hospitable. (Rating 8.3)


Ideal location for a break and delicious food. Everything was extensively renovated over the past couple of months. A very beautiful room with a wonderful restaurant downstairs in the heart of a lovely village. (Rating 9.2)


We were the very first guests in this room. I never knew that Ambierle was such a nice picturesque village. Village festivities on Friday night with traders and craftsmen. We had drinks and some food in the street and ate and talked with other visitors…. we had a great time. (Rating 10)


Good. In Ambierle, directly next to the tower, is a small café/restaurant with a terrace overlooking the village square. You are immediately immersed, as it were, in the very center of this charming village. We were given a very warm welcome. (Rating 7.5)

These Gites are a great addition to this characteristic village. Lancelot is the ideal meeting place for the locals. The atmosphere is relaxed and the food is good.We had dinner with the family and we chose a menu. The food was delicious, authentic and the local wines were great. We will soon come back to try the other menus. The Gites are really worthwhile!

Lancelot offers a good price/quality ratio for a dinner in a warm and friendly atmosphere. The food is refined and looks and tastes wonderful.

We, camper owners, discovered this beautiful village by accident. We are used to very wide-ranging experiences during our travels and we were very happy to have discovered the Gites. We appreciate quality of products and the food is really very good. The reception was friendly. We had a great time for a very reasonable price and we left with a very satisfied feeling indeed! During our stay we learned that the Gites were just recently opened. I have one advice only: good luck and keep up the excellent work!! We certainly recommend a visit to Gites Le Lancelot and the restaurant.

Discover this small restaurant with its friendly and warm hospitality. The dishes are beautifully prepared. The salad with escargots is especially recommended. We were pleased with the advice of the knowledgeable patron about wines and local wine yards. We had a very nice time out on the beautiful terrace.
