Returned here with friends on a bike trip, still convenient for that purpose. The rooms are still fine, but the breakfast offering is skimpy and does not change from day to day. The pizza restaurant in the village is adequate.

About an hour walk along the river (or a short drive) from Auxerre, functional but somewhat disappointing given the positive reviews to date. Room was clean, very little ventilation on a warm night (with locks on the windows preventing them from opening more than a few inches - no A/C), breakfast adequate but unexceptional. Owner was not particularly friendly. Pizza... More

Very pleasant guest house about 6 km from Auxerre. Large rooms, common area on the main floor, wi-fi, good breakfast included, reasonable prices. There's not much in Vaux, but the pizza restaurant across the river is quite good.

Along with our 2 children and spouses, and 3 grandchildren, we booked rooms for 4 nights. We had a wonderful experience. Beautiful and spacious, with kitchen available for our use. The common living area was roomy. The "family room" had two interconnecting bedrooms which was ideal with 3 little ones. Reasonable price. I can't say enough good things about this... More

Wonderful little B&B in a very quiet and peaceful village by the Yonne river a mere 6 km from central Auxerre. Rooms are spacious and very clean with nice bathrooms. The establishment seems to have undergone a very recent make-over. Breakfast, with home made goodies, is a treat.

We made a two-night stop here on the way to Cognac. The welcome was warm and helpful, a secure bike store was offered. Rooms spacious and quiet, excellent beds. The breakfast was outstanding, lovely multi-grain breads, home-made grape juice and jams, fresh fruit salad one day and cake the other. All products organic! Just a step across the bridge took...

We were two couples travelling together. We booked the family suite which was two bedrooms and a shared bath. It was perfect. Andre recommended a restaurant downtown, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Breakfast was quite hearty for a continental style. The price was fantastic. Andre and Catherine were extremely helpful. Our French is limited and they even made a long distance... More

This was a truly excellent Chambre d'hote. Catherine and Andre were very helpful and welcoming. Our room was perfect and the breakfast was excellent. We would definitely saty here again and would strongly recommend it to others.

We stayed for one night in mid April. Excellent accommodation and a excellent breakfast including home made cherry and apricot preserves. Very pleasant host who contacted a local restaurant to reserve a table for us. We will definitely stay here again.

This is the fourth/fifth time we have stayed here in the last three years - but the first in winter. We did wonder how warm we would be - we need not have been concerned. Catherine and Andre are genuinely kind and welcoming and maintain high standards. The kitchen can be used by guests to prepare meals other than breakfast... More
