We arrived on Saturday evening to a warm welcome from Herve. We were given a short tour of the his home and and some very interesting historical facts about the house and the area. We were shown to our room which matched the rest of the house from the artwork and colours to the absolute cleanliness of everything. We felt... More

Such charming, helpful and informative hosts in Herve and Xavier. A wonderful house, warm, very clean, so colourful as such love has been spent on producing their paintings, furniture and general decor. Traditional French breakfast with quality products and organic coffee. Short walk into town centre with lots of recommendations from Herve on where to eat, what to visit although... More

We arrived on a Sunday evening. The welcome was warm and included a tour of the house and it's history. As it was a Sunday evening with most restaurants being closed Herve gave us excellent advise on where to eat. The house was colourful, warm and elegantly appointed. Our room was spacious and included everything we needed plus a number... More

Met people who really care for people and environment. The house is bright, lively, full of colors, spacious & beautifully decorated with self painted furnitures n frames. The breakfast was yummiliciuos. We thank you for the warm welcome. Would love to visit again. -Sonal & Rajesh

This is the second time that we have stayed with Hervé and Xavier. They are the perfect hosts, making us very welcome in their quaint house. The room is very comfortable and breakfast is a French delight! They gave us good tips on where to dine and about places to visit. We love it here!

Our stay at this charming B&B in Arras was one of the best in our month in Europe. Our host Herve did everything possible to make our stay a pleasant one - suggesting excellent restaurants, negotiating with the tourist office, offering helpful tips, and answering questions about everything from architecture to flowers. Our taxi ride to Vimy for a three-hour... More

My husband and I started our honeymoon in Arras - we stayed at Herve's B&B, which was such a fantastic start to our trip. The room is colourful, cozy and quite large with an ensuite bathroom. A very comfortable stay. Breakfasts were French pastries, jams, spreads with wonderful coffee. Herve was incredibly helpful upon our arrival in terms of explaining... More

I originally booked for two nights to do a tour of the western front sites of interests to an Australian but found lots to do (with my hosts assistance tips, translations, timetables etc), day trips to Lens, Lille, Ypres and Arras itself. Fantastic public 25m indoor pool a 5-10 minute walk away. The accommodation is in a lovely old street,... More

We spent two nights at Le Soleil du Lion in June and were delighted with the room and the hospitality. Not only was Hevre a gracious host, he provided some tips on places to eat in town which were excellent. I will also add recommendations to tripadvisor for these resturants. After returning from a highly emotional day visiting the Canadian... More

The street is narrow, the buildings a bit misleading as to what lies within. But inside, spacious with warm and welcoming colors and tasteful furnishings. The bedroom and bathroom suite are spacious. Herve is the perfect host. Competent in English and attentive and helpful to our needs and in providing local information. The room is warm with plenty of ventilation.... More
