We stayed at this B&B with our two young children from Dec. 23rd - 26th, 2012. The owner, Recar, advertised the studio as non-smoking and that was far from the truth. As soon as we walked into the building we were overwhelmed with the smell of smoke. We were staying on the 2nd floor but Recar permitted smoking on the ground level. Like many smokers, he did not realize just how bad he and the entire place smelled. He also did not seem to grasp the very basic fact that smoke rises. It seems that others have complained about Recar's false advertising because the studio booklet states that smoking is not permitted since he will not be able to rent it out to the next guests. Our Dutch friends were shocked at the stench and felt we should get a refund. Recar's solution was to buy some candles which only made things worse. Other negatives were that the bathroom was extremely small and the shower was dirty to boot. On the positive, food for breakfast was refilled everyday. Also there were many toys for our kids to play with. Unfortunately, the damage done to their health from the secondhand smoke outweighed the benefit of toys. We will never, ever, never willingly return to Recar's wilted Fleur.
