A lovely welcome on arrival .... big bedrooms and a very comfortable bed .... fabulous homemade french-style breakfast. All this in a beautifully decorated older style house with lots of polished wood and a sweeping staircase. Madame couldn't have been more helpful in suggesting somewhere to eat. We would certainly return when in the area.

This beautiful historic home at the edge of the historic district of Bourges is a wonderful surprise. It's gated/walled property contains secure parking for guests and beautiful gardens fill the grounds. Sophie and Gilles are warm and attentive hosts, who ran restaurants for 35+ years before opening their B&B several years ago. Their experience shows in every aspect of this...

If Sophie and Giles were picked up as consultants to a major hotel chain, then on the one hand the world would be a better place, and on the other it would be diminished because you couldn't, perhaps, enjoy their own brand of definitive hospitality first hand. Read the other reviews, they say it all. Absolutely delightful place to stay.

What an idyllic place to stay, great location, wonderful rooms, welcoming hosts and delicious breakfast (plus we all fell in love with the hosts lovely dog, Elliot) our only regret was that we we're only staying the one night on a stop over en route to Spain. Totally recommended and thoroughly deserves its great reviews.

The house was stunning, and the decor is in keeping with the period. The...

I fully endorse the previous reviewers' comments. The welcome from Sophie, Giles, Elliott and their family is very warm. Nothing is too much trouble and they had excellent suggestions for restaurants and other attractions to visit in the area. Giles happily made restaurant bookings and Sophie's breakfast spread is very comprehensive and furthermore, it is all home made! The shared...

This is a French Gem, in my view the best bed and breakfast ever. The property is gorgeous; it is a traditional period French house. Originally the home of a French Industrialist, it has loads of original features and has been lovingly and sympathetically decorated to the highest standards and tastes to reflect the houses heritage. The accommodation reflects this...
