My husband and I stayed here in the summer of 2012 for 2 days. We toured around France for eight days and, out of all of the places we stayed, this was our favorite (and ironically the least expensive!)
It was all-around lovely! The best way I can describe it is the French version of the house from "Under the Tuscan Sun." It is a beautiful old converted farm house, but all of the bedrooms have been renovated - modern and chic - that beautiful combination of the old with the new decor. The house is located in the middle of its own vineyard. As soon as we got there, I was immediately in heaven. Instead of heading out to town as planned, we decided to open a bottle of wine and enjoy our picturesque surroundings, wandering around the grounds and relaxing in their beautiful outdoor living space.
The B&B is run by a sweet little family. The hostess is kind and friendly. We met her husband in the morning, and he gave us recommendations for places to go nearby. Even their cute little daughter helped with the family business, tiptoeing over to bring us our coffee at breakfast before scurrying back to her mom after placing it on the table.
Somehow, we seemed to be the only people there during our stay, but we still got the full spread for breakfast each morning! -- the highlight of which was an assortment of fresh juice and jams from their garden (including grape juice and grape jelly made with the grapes from their vineyard!) Also included in our spread were: (of course) baguettes, croissants, a marvelous assortment of cheeses, meats, yogurt...
If I were to go back to France, I would want to come back here & just soak up the beauty and peace of this place for as long as possible!
Also, as a bonus, their are several adorable little towns nearby, worth a visit, as well as beautiful vineyards & wineries (with delicious wine!). Check out Mourchon - they have a very thorough tour & tasting in English every Wednesday!
I cannot recommend Le Jour et La Nuit enough! (Though just as a heads up, we did not see a "Le Jour et La Nuit" sign anywhere when we were trying to find it. So if you're following their directions, but don't see a sign either, don't worry! - you're probably at the right place!) :)
