One of the most beautiful medieval village in France is Vezelay, where Benedictines build a beautiful abbey in 10-11 century. The second and third crusades started in this small picturesque place. There are a few hotels in and nearby but Val En Sel B/B is a very special place. It is located at the end of a small beautiful village... More

We stayed here and visited Vezelay, only a short 10 minute drive. Dominique, the owner, makes your stay comfortable and she had terrific advice on restaurants and other sights to see. Our "red" room looked out over the gardens. Great value.

Given its rural location in a small village, a reader might wonder why we thought 2 days was too short a stay at Val En Sel. However, we are train travelers who enjoy walking out in the countryside and consider this area to be one of the most beautiful for doing that. Just did not have enough time to explore... More

We had been in Paris for a few days, then spent a day and night in Versailles, so we had been in crowds for days. We wanted to see something of the countryside, so rented a car from Versailles and off we went. After a stop at Chartres, we made the easy and quick drive to Vezelay and on to... More

This really was one of the most relaxing places we've ever stayed. From the moment we arrived, we were treated to Dominique's unceasing hospitality, gorgeous natural surroundings and a permanent sense of calm.
