the Maison is situated in the old centre of Valence. You expect given the internet projection something nicely situated, the truth is different. The house is hardly reachable by car, not mentioning the possibilities to park. The standard room we got @160 euro/night, was 47 steps upstairs. Spacious room with separate bathroom and toilet. You dont get breakfast included in... More

We come to Valence twice a year and always stay at Maison de la Pra. It has become a second home. The rooms are fantastic, try the red or the black. Mr. and Mrs. Bayart are always very nice and very helpful with advice on what to see and where to go in the region.

We stayed in this guesthouse on our way from Avignon for one night.  The very large room was lovely by way of furnishings and the bathroom was large and modern.  This guesthouse is in an interesting old building and was basically brought up to standard from being derelict in the early 2000's.  The owners have done a very good job...

We stayed in the Hotel Residence de Bressac, which is a "twin-residence" of Maison de la Pra and it was a wonderful experience. The residence and the rooms are stylish, beautiful and the hosts, Diane et Henri Jean Bayart, very kind and always prepared to help. As we did damaged car, it was really useful to stay in their residence!... More

We booked this place because we thought it would be good to stay in an apartment and cook for ourselves and do some washing. However the so -called apartment was a very beautiful but sparsely furnished large room with a basin and microwave in a cupboard, no possibility of any real cooking and nothing to cook with. The host was... More

We were in a 3-room apartment/suite in the newly renovated adjacent building. Friendly (professional, but informal) welcome from the owners, who directed us to a massive and architecturally late 18thC lobby with sweeping stone stairs and 3-storey high vaulted ceilings. We were on the 3rd floor (no lift) which wasn't ideal given that we were travelling with 2 preschoolers (think... More

This guest house is kept in impeccable shape with very large rooms with large bathrooms. Our host, Henri, is rightfully proud of his property. We were steps from the pedestrian area of the city,so we could walk to Michelin rated restaurants and many bistros...the location was great.
