“Pampered in Porrentruy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Look no more. This is the perfect base from which to explore Porrentruy and St Ursanne, a short drive across the border to France, a home to come back to after exploring the Jura.

A gurgling brook fronts your garden. In summer it invites you to jump in for a swim....or fish for trout to BBQ. B&B owner Patrick has thoughtfully set up a petanque (boccie or bowls) corner to occupy the kids or visiting friends. You can be as active or as lazy as you wish.

There are 2 well-appointed downstairs rooms with big bathrooms, all tastefully decorated, and a kitchen with coffee-maker, fridge stocked with juices, all the utensils you might need .... and upstairs a 2-bedroom apartment with fully stocked kitchen. Write to Patrick for a discount for long term stays.

Patrick generously shares tips about the region and thoughtfully provides maps, brochures etc. The breakfast is delicious with home-grown apple juice, freshly-baked bread, smoked hams, cheese, home-made jams. We could not have wished for anything more.

Room Tip: Drivers have ample parking space but the slope down to the house is a bit steep. Inexperienced drive...
