A few months ago, my partner and I discovered this wonderful B+B while touring America.
We still talk about our relaxed time spent there, as one of the highlights of our holiday.
It is probably in our personal top 5 ever best B+B.
The hosts, Myriam and her parents are extremley friendly and welcoming people.Having run their own restaurant for many years, they know how to look after their "customers".
Myriam cooked something different for each morning, made with fresh ingredients, and a dash of love!
This place was spotless/comfortable/quiet and relaxing.There was a choice of 5 rooms, with a large open plan lounge available for guests to use.
Would recommend the room we had, with patio doors, that opened out on to a well looked after garden/grounds.
We watched the wildlife, including resident ducks and 6 fluffy chicks paddling on the small pond, while we reclined on a garden lounge, sipping the complimentary glass of wine early evening.The grounds are full of different types of trees, and plenty of flowers to give colour.
A short stroll early evening to the main street,and we found a good choice of several eating places.We chose a local pizza place, for its really good salad bar.
We found Myriam and her mother knew the area really well.They were not only good at showing interest in what we had planned for the day, but also brilliant at suggesting what else we might look up while in a particular area.
It was a little more than we would normally have paid, but was really good value for money.
We had only intended to stay one night, but completley changed our travelling plans,extending our stay to 3 nights, taking in all this place had to offer.
