— Please tell us a bit about the history of the manor.
It’s a wonderful comparison tour for people staying here to see the original chateau of François I in Cognac, because they see this was the advisor’s home and that is the castle of the boss.
The Knights Templar is a big thing here too, so for people who are interested in Middle Age history, there are very few regions in the world that are more incredible. The only mosaics of the Knights Templar still in existence today are about nine kilometers from here.”

— Why did you decide to turn the house into a Bed and Breakfast?
A friend of ours had guests at his castle not far from here. He said he couldn’t put them all up for the night, so he asked if I had any rooms available. I told him they could have three of the rooms and he asked me how much I would charge them. I wasn’t going to charge, but he insisted. It was at that point when the idea came to us to turn it into a Bed and Breakfast.”
— Please tell us a bit about the renovations of Logis de Puygâty after you bought it.
— How would you describe Le Logis de Puygâty in a nutshell?
— François de Lâge bedroom
— How would you describe the style of Le Logis de Puygâty?
— What kind of facilities do you offer as part of the B&B?
One of the large barns is a reception room where guests can have meals or hold weddings. We furnished it with all kinds of decorative objects, some made and others bought.
We offer WiFi in every room, as well as flat screen TVs. We have refrigerators or mini bars and cast iron radiators. We were considering putting in air conditioning, but the walls are 70 centimeters thick. So in the summer it’s always cool and it’s easy to heat in the winter.”
