We had 3 days here after a fantastic week on the Canal du Nivernais, and we felt it maintained the standard. Nathalie and Stephane Oudot run a Chambres D'Hote in a lovely old house that was built by the owner of a cement factory, now closed but with a swimming pool on top. The rooms are exceptional, the welcome is... More

This must rank as the best B&B we have ever stayed at in France. We booked late so had one of the two big suites on the top floor. Exquisitely designed and furnished rooms paired with a strikingly modern bath-and-shower room looked out onto peaceful, rolling countryside. You descend down sweeping, elliptical staircases for breakfast in the modern conservatory, where... More

Like many before us, we booked La Cimentelle on the basis of previous Trip Advisor reviewers' comments - rarely had we seen an establishment with such glowing reviews. "Surely it can't be this good" we asked ourselves but it is. We booked two nights on the way to a holiday in Provence and another night on the return journey. We... More

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

My wife and I chose to stay here for one night on our way to Italy for our honeymoon this June and we both couldn't believe what a gem we had found!

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

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
