This really was one of the most relaxing places we've ever stayed. From the moment we arrived, we were treated to Dominique's unceasing hospitality, gorgeous natural surroundings and a permanent sense of calm. The buildings themselves are a joy at Val en Sel, and the extensive gardens are the perfect spot for a stroll or a picnic. Our room oozed... More

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful B & B. The bed was comfortable, and everything about the inn was lovely. The location was picturesque, charming, relaxing. Dominique was a most thoughtful and caring hostess and helped to make our stay enjoyable in every way.

I have been remiss in not reviewing Val en Sel, where we stayed a few years ago (2009), on our overnight stop to Paris. We have thought about it many times since that visit as a place we would love to stay again. We have been to France a number of times and when we plan to leave from Paris,... More

Even though our stay at Val en Sal was too brief, we enjoyed it very much. Accommodations were comfortable and very pleasant, and Madame Carrez could not have been more hospitable. St. Pere is also more charming than Vezelay, which tends to be touristy. I highly recommend Val en Sel.

We spent three nights in this lovely inn. Dominique wasn´t there, but asked her second-lieutenant to give us a warm welcome. She arrived the following morning and is truly a phenomenal hostess. Her restaurant suggestions are always spot-on! This place is actually in St Pere about 2 km shy of Vezelay.

Val En Sel was my favourite place where I stayed during my two weeks in France. Located in St. Pere it is 2 km from Vezelay. Dominique is the perfect hostess who should be running a bed and breakfast. When you arrive she welcomes you into the salon for a drink of your choice and has a wealth of information... More

Val en Sel was so pretty. It is located in St Pere, 2km from Vezelay. Dominique was an excellent hostess, very warm and helpful. I had a great room with 3 windows each had a view of different side. It was tastefully decorated. The building is very pretty, apparently 100 years old belonged to Dominique's parents, today she works here... More

This was one of our favorite places to stay on our recent trip. The hostess was very nice and gave us lots of ideas for places to see and restaurants to try. The breakfast was delicious.
