We have just spent the most charming 3 days here.It was truly beautiful.
We arrived very late on our first evening(bad traffic jams in uk,no surprise there)and Agnes and Bernard made us most welcome and had prepared a beautiful meal for our arrival,even though it was11pm.
Nothing was to much trouble,.Bernard was very helpful with directions and car parking for Paris etc.We were supplied with maps for Disney and Paris before we'd even walked out of the front door..fantastic...By the way,Disney is only about 20 minutes drive away and in my opinion soooo much better to stay here,in this beautiful old watermill in a gorgeous French village and drive to Disney rather than stay in Disney it's self.
Agnes and Bernard are really lovely hosts,the B&B is spotlessly clean and the breakfasts were lovely.
I really can't think of anything i would change about this place.If you are looking for an authentic French setting..with a stunning bridge to cross over the river to the front door,shutters on the windows,beams in the rooms,big open log fire,friendly hosts,good food...full of charm and character, then you really must stay here.We will be returning in August with friends, who i can't wait to show our little find.
