We stayed in the tower apartment, two large bedrooms each with king bed and ensuite bathroom, very large and modern, tile floors, sparkling clean! We also had a large living room with refrigerator and piano. The grounds are 4 acres of rolling gardens resplendent with flowers, grass, views of the lake and castle, cows with bells roaming the adjacent hillside,...

Odile Ougier is the very efficient owner of this bnb. She speaks very good English and runs the place with a lot of care. The rooms are very well appointed. We took a two room duplex which was better than any suite at a hotel. If you are visiting this area, I would suggest this as the place to stay...

La Vallombreuse is situated in a beautiful location, and the garden surrounding the building is something out of the ordinary. The rooms are individually designed and at different floors, but we had A very generous sized room at the ground floor with comfortable beds and a spotlessly clean bathroom of good size. Breakfast was served at the top floor and...

We landed up at La Vallombreuse because our original booking got messed. The owners at La Maison De Pins contacted Odile, the owner at La Vallombreuse.

This hotel cannot be praised too a much. A unique and handsome building set in a beautiful location, only surpassed by the gorgeous and individually styled rooms (which are spotlessly clean).
