    A beautifully restored public building, repurposed as a bespoke guest house. Lovely period features and an Art Deco theme with lots of interesting touches throughout the house. Off road, private parking, a tranquil walled garden with swimming pool...

    The reception by the owners was great as was the room with a view over the garden. Huge room with great bathroom. Excellent breakfast. Good access to the tourist sites as well as the restaurants in the center of town.

    By far the most beautiful B&B I’ve ever seen, with the friendliest people and most delicious breakfast. I wanted to move in forever! Seeing if I can get myself adopted by Sandrine and Pascal. 😆

    This is an exceptional chambres d'hotes, with carefully decorated rooms in a historic building. However, they are the hosts who make the difference. A place one must see. Breakfast was great and the facilities excellent.
