This is a beautiful hotel small and fabulously clean beds are the most comfortable I have ever had would definitely go back. The breakfast is basic but very tasty home made jam fresh bread fresh fruit and yogurt. The village is very nice with a bar and a restaurant

A delightful place to stay in a lovely little village. The room was absolutely spotless with everything that was needed. Breakfast in the morning was very nice with fresh fruit salad alongside alongside the normal continental style including various cheeses.

Sadly we only had one night at Le Detour, en route between Burgundy and Alsace. It would have been lovely to have had a little longer to explore a beautiful region that we don't know at all. The countryside within which Le Detour is located is gorgeous, and the B&B itself has great views out over the surrounding scenery. Joel... More

Our night at Le Detour was one of the highlights of our two weeks in France. Joel came out to greet us as we drove up and that set the tone for the whole stay. The room was large and clean with a great bed and a nice view over the countryside. Buffard is a small village but was a... More

We had planned a one night stay in this B&B, but soon after we arrived we were so impressed that we extended it by an extra night. The B&B is in a small village in the country with only one restaurant (within easy walking distance), but it is well located for visiting ther major sites of the area. Our room... More

I made a reservation online & was hoping this B&B would be good. It was great! The owner was so friendly and helpful. He introduced our 4 children to his 2 donkies & let our kids feed them bread. The charming B & B is updated, clean & comfortable and the grounds are beautiful. We took a walk around the... More

We felt really at home at this lovely place. The owners are extremely friendly without being pushy. It's true that the town doesn't have much to offer, but what do you expect when you visit the real countryside? As far as I'm concerned, the town is full of character, has a decent restaurant (if you want something a bit more... More

We loved this place, it was so rural and laid back. We arrived on a hot Sunday afternoon and there was nobody about...I mean no -one, but a quick phone call to the owner brought about a swift return from his swim! (sorry 'bout that). After a cool lager or two, we went for a stroll around the village which... More

Total relaxation in small, charming, welcoming inn located in a tiny village in immaculate, scenic Franche-Comte. The welcoming owners host wonderful traditional dinners twice weekly in their adjoining house in atmospheric cave-like dining room. Stress forgotten. Enjoy the local Arbois wines (very distinctive) and amazing Franche Comte cheese. Lovely grounds and area.

We stopped at Le Detour for one night on our way from Lyon to Besancon. It was a wonderful B&B. The rooms were large, clean and comfortable; the host friendly. Breakfast consisted of fresh croissants, bread, butter and jams. All very tasty, but lacking in any real substance and there is nowhere else in town to go. The inn is... More
