We booked this bed & breakfast based on the previous amazing reviews and were not at all disappointed. The two components of a bed and breakfast are rather obvious - a comfortable room with all of the facilities that you need and a good breakfast. Villa Cecile is outstanding for both. The room was luxurious, clean and included just about... More

Having booked late, and not quite knowing what to expect, we were absolutely delighted. The standards here and attention to detail would not be out of place in any five star establishment. Rooms are luxurious, bathrooms expensively lavish and everything crisply new and spotless. You feel you are the first person ever to have stayed in your room. Home-made breakfasts... More

My wife and I chose Villa Cecile for its quiet, rural village location in easy reach of La Rochelle and Ile de Re. We enjoy staying in B&Bs/chambres d'hote, especially small family run properties, and have stayed in many over the years particularly in France. Villa Cecile did not disappoint in any respect - hence our rating. This undoubtedly is... More

Who'd ever have thought that an ordinary looking house in a little village in rural France could be like this inside? The design and thought that went into this is quite staggering. The rooms are if possible even better than they appear in the photos, the French couple who own it (and who I believe did the design) are really... More

When I walked into La Villa Cecile my jaw dropped. I had chosen it based on good reviews and it did not disappoint. It is simply stunning, straight out of "Grand Designs." My wife and I stayed 3 nights and the location is ideal for trips to Ile de Re and The Marais. I don't have the words to describe... More

if you want to be indulged at every level then stay at La Villa Cecile. The attention to detail is wonderful and the hospitality makes one feel right at home. Cecile's breakfasts are delicious and home cooked. A handy location to La Rochelle and the Ile de Re

We had a wonderful overnight stay. The detail and design creates a very stylish place to stay. The owners are so very welcoming. Rooms are excellent and the breakfast is delicious. Easy walking distance to le petite caprice restaurant makes this a must stay place!

We were scanning the net for a good value place to stay in La Rochelle before our morning flight back to london after a couple of weeks in the Charente region. We were drawing blanks! So we extended our search to a wider area and came across this absolute gem of a B&B. Situated just 30 minutes from La Rochelle,... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the villa a few nights ago. The owners (Gerard & Cecile) are charming and welcoming, their warmth and their gentle labrador Zack (I may have his name spelt wrong) made for a perfect welcome. The villa is utterly immaculate and could not have been cleaner, tidier or more comfortable. The breakfast was excellent... More

La Villa Cecile is a truly excellent bed and breakfast. The hosts make great efforts to cater for your every need. Beautiful, quiet rooms, lovely breakfast, spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. The hosts were friendly and helpful at all times. We received advice on local restaurants and what to see and do in La Rochelle and the area. There is... More
