About us

We love France, but find it difficult to find vegetarian or vegan food. The Limousin region, “the French Lake District”, is a beautiful and peaceful area. We moved to the charming town of Felletin, La Creuse, in 2007 and opened a vegetarian bed and breakfast in a former presbytery house. We believe it is important to support local organic farmers, who sell their produce at the weekly town market, including flour that Andrea uses to bake her scrumptious bread. We adapt regional recipes as well as offering delicious dishes from around the world, using local seasonal ingredients wherever possible. Sourcing vegetarian wines and cheeses is more difficult than in the UK, due to inadequate labelling. Extensive research (and of course tasting!) means we have done the hard work, so you can sit back and enjoy the results at Le Vieux Presbytère de Felletin. 0033 555665229

P.S. in case you were wondering “Humpbuckle” is a combination of our two surnames
