Quiet location convenient for many local attractions and easy access to motorway and rail. Room was very well appointed and very well maintained. Cooking by the host very fine and served with excellent local wine. Very friendly service throughout our three day stay. The home produced raspberry jam at breakfast was the best ever tasted! Crepes and fruit salad at... More

The hotel is situated at the end of the main street in gorgeous grounds, overlooking the fields opposite. We were welcomed very warmly by Nathalie and Stephane and... More

I cannot think of anything negative to say about La Cimentelle. Nathalie and Stéphane are wonderful hosts of a beautiful, engaging and peaceful house with a great history. They have created a very relaxing environment of mixed styles in wonderful grounds close to Avallon. Like many Chambres d'hôtes owners, this business is far removed from their previous professions but you... More

We spent 4 nights at La Cimentelle to attend a wedding in Vassy.The stay exceeded our expectations! Both Nathalie and Stephane were amazing hosts! The breakfast in the conservatory were the highlight - homemade jams and fresh baguettes and croissants! Also, our room (L'Hypollyte) was very large and wonderfully appointed. We were in Vassy in July when a severe thunderstorm... More

Stephane and Nathalie greeted us warmly, like we were old friends. They were both helpful, giving us information about the area and ideas of where to... More

You will feel privileged to stay in this beautiful house. We were lucky enough to have good weather so loved the pool before dinner. Dinner and breakfast were both excellent and we met lots of interesting people while dining together. It's a bit like being invited to a country house dinner party. Highly recommend if you are staying in this... More

The three of us stayed in the Barthelemy suite on the 1st (in Europe) floor. The rooms were more than adequate and very nicely decorated. It worked out well for the two of us and my sister. The downside is two long flights of stairs and no elevator. Hauling the luggage was somewhat of a challenge although help was offered.... More

We spent two nights in September sharing the Ernest suite with our friends and greatly enjoyed ourselves. Our rooms were large as were the bathrooms which were spotless. This is a very unusual property chock full of fantastic antiques which have evidently been with the property forever.
