We stopped off at this little place on our journey down to the south of France. We received an amazing welcome from Catherine who provided everything we needed - and more for a lovely night's stay. Catherine is a wonderful host and fantastic cook!

You have to experience this B&B that you could understand what people here are talking about. A l’Ombre Bleue is in the middle of the country side, but only about 1 hour drive from Paris. Lots of place to explore nearby. You will sleep here like a baby, rooms are beautifully decorated in a bit romantic style. Very good bed... More

I slept one night at this guest room and I had a warm welcoming. The owner is very kind and she wants to make sure that you have everything you need. My room was very well equipped and very comfortable. The breakfast is substantial. This is a very lovely place.

It is difficult to find adjectives to describe everything about A l'Ombre Bleue as it would be a stream of superlatives. It is an exceptional chambres 'd'hôtes where the welcome, facilities and food match the prettiness of the garden and the environment. It is unique and the words Catherine uses to describe it - charme, authenticité, plaisir sums it up... More

This was our second stay with Catherine en route further south. She is an excellent hostess and a great cook! The house is charming, rooms are equipped with everything you need, tea, coffee, a fridge full of water, beer, soft drinks. Catherine has the knack of making her guests feel at home, she loves her home and loves to share... More

A haven from the bland tyranny of minimalism! Everywhere you look there is something interesting to see, to read or to wonder at even if it is only the beautiful hand-painted frieze in la Chambres des Muses. It would be impossible to be bored here. There is everything you need in the fridge and no disgusting instant coffee- Catherine has... More

We stayed for just one night at Catherine's beautiful chambre d'hote. We wish we had known how lovely it was as we would have stayed longer. The setting is beautiful, with a lovely enclosed garden and a green with a duck pond just outside. The family room was perfect for the four of us; really it's a two room apartment,... More
