“Villa Fol Avril”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

My husband and I stayed at the Villa Fol Avril for 2 nights. Such a quaint little village in a beautiful setting. We arrived a couple of hours early but our room was ready which was great.

We arrived on a Monday afternoon and was ready for a nice bottle of wine and some pate or cheese for lunch, however we were told there was no Chef available to prepare anything for us, this was rather disappointing as we just wanted to relax after a long drive.

We had to drive several miles for something to eat which was a real shame!

Phillipe and the staff are very friendly and I would recommend this little hotel. However there is no airconditioning, fridge, tea coffee facilities or bath robes in the room which should be basic requirements for the price.

The hotel atmosphere and food is very good and we would highly recommend the Villa Fol Avril.

Room Tip: If you like air conditioning don't book this hotel unless it it out of season. If you want a ro...

The whole experience was excellent. Courteous, friendly, efficient service, great attention to detail and spotless sums up this great find in the Perche region of France. Really attractive decor shows a great design flair and the food was superb.

We stayed at Villa fol Avril overnight on our way home from the South of France and yet again it did not disappoint. We stayed in one of the new suites in the garden and it was delightful, very modern with every facility. We had a beautiful meal in the evening which was very reasonably priced for the superb quality of the food and the wine was great. It is difficult to describe the quality of this little hotel in a very tiny pretty village but well worth a visit.

We visited Villa Fol Avril for the first time at the beginning of September - and we are already talking about when we can return! Moutiers au Perche is a new part of France for us and is a
4.5 hour drive from The Tunnel - perfect for a first night stop on the way south. We stayed for three nights and will probably stay longer next time. The rooms are charming and the food is excellent without being 'over the top'. Moutiers is a very pretty village, with a lovely church up the nearby hill. Look out for the gargoyles. If you can, visit in the summer, as the garden is very pretty, with a good sized swimming pool and plenty of comfortable seats for sitting out in the sun. I think you can always tell a good hotel when you like the people you meet staying there. We liked quite a few!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 8 which was at the top of the main building. It was charming and had a pitched roo...

My (new!) husband and I went to Villa Fol Avril for 5 nights following our wedding in London.The hotel made every effort to make our special time as especially special as they could (!-from a very kind special rate in honour of our honeymoon-to a thoughtful glass of bubbly at our first night dinner- to not batting an eyelid at our requests for breakfast in bed most mornings).The location was JUST what we were looking for after the hustle and bustle of wedding planning in a busy city-quiet,peaceful,picture perfect(if what your looking for is a pocket of calm and silence in a mad world-THIS IS IT).And the layout of the villa exudes a similar zen like quality-picture: hammocks,deck chairs and couches to flop on at any given opportunity.Then there's the food-yum yum yum-tasty,honest,fresh and very good value for what comes.Go go go!xxx

In the region Le Perche with its green hills and valleys and an abundance af flowers you will find a fairytale village called Moutier au Perche. In this village lies a really agreable hotel Le Villa Fol Avril, one of the best countryside hotels I ever have experienced.
The moment you enter you feel pampered like a most wanted guest, the personel being very friendly.
A beautiful terrace in front where you can have dinner when the weather permits, a little heaven.
In the back a split level rustique garden with swimmingpool where you can let out all the stress of citylive.
The cuisine (menu's between 22 and 33 euros) is simple but well-executed, a sophisticated 3star-meal wouldn't do in these countrysidesurroundings. The breakfast: was excellent.
There were some little drawbacks: the wellcome-cookies in the room were very, very old and the door between the innercorridor and the bedside had a defect lock.
When I write this down I realize that this secret heaven will not stay long secret any longer!
