“A great place to stay”
Reviewed July 26, 2011

We stayed at the Villa on two separate occasions in July, once on our way to the Alps and the other on the way back.

We stayed in the Gite (as a free of charge upgrade) the first time and in the Mery room in the main house on our return.

The Gite was superb and recently renovated to a very high spec. It had a kitchen, lounge, two bedrooms and a bathroom. The Mery room was also great but this time full of original features because it was in the main house. Both rooms were spotlessly clean. We also loved the decor, both made you feel at home and welcomed. Both rooms had a really nice feel about them.

Charles, the owner, was extremely welcoming and very accommodating - we had asked if he could store our bikes during our stay and it was no problem at all. The other staff we met were also really helpful. He also sent us away with some fruit and crossiants on our second trip because we had to leave before breakfast.

Rooms were quiet and beds extremely comfortable on both occasions.

We will definitely stay here again.

We decided to stay at Arcis sur Aube after an unfruitful search of B & B's in Reims and needing to head South to Burgundy. The house is wonderfully restored, our room very ample in size and the location great for Troyes and a do-able drive to the fabulous Les Riceys. Charles made our stay by being friendly, knowledgable and welcoming. The town itself was a bit underwhelming, however we were there on a Sunday/Monday and our restaurant selection was limited. After a fast paced week in Paris and a few days in Epernay, it was the break we were hoping for, and I think it deserves the high praise on TA. On a final note, we slept through breakfast on our first morning, and needed to leave early on our second. We hadn't communicated this to Charles, but as we were leaving he packed us a breakfast, which was done with genuine warmth and kindness, even with our protests. This summed up Villa Primerose for us. Charles and his wife genuinely care about their guests and their business, and it was greatly appreciated. When running a B & B the owners need to open their house to strangers, and Charles never made us feel we were that. Merci, et bon chance!

We are a middle aged couple from the UK and spent a month travelling through France. Arcis sur Aube is ideally situated as a first and/or last night stop-over before Calais if you are driving from/to the UK. It is well worth spending a few nights here, as there is a lot to see in the area.
Villa Primerose is very attractive and quirky (in a good way!). The Garden Room is delightful and very quiet, with an amazing bathroom. We also stayed in a room in the main house, which was equally charming.
The owner, Charles, couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. He speaks excellent English and knows the area and all the best restaurants in and around town well.
The breakfast (included in the price) was really delicious, replete with home-made cakes and wonderful preserves, made from fruit from the garden.
The building is stunning architecturally and set in a quiet road within a couple of minutes walk to the centre of town. There is plenty of secure off-street parking in the grounds of the Villa.
We will definitely be staying there again in future.

Pam & I spent another two nights at Villa Primerose - one our way South & one our way north.
Once again everything was excellent.
This is a B & B par excellence
We recommend it to you all.

Villa Primerose is a true jewel in the middle of France. The hotel itself has amazing character and style. The rooms radiate such positive and relaxing energy. A wonderful
mixture of classic antique style with modern technology. The atmosphere, and hosts,
makes for a magical experience. The food and service was outstanding quality. It was like
home away from home. Ten out of ten. A very luck find.

We stopped at Villa Primerose for one night on our way to Switzerland and fell in love with place. Charles was a most charming host and we will definitely return. We cannot recommend it highly enough and the home made bread pudding included on the breakfast menu was the "piece de resistance" !!

We stayed here for two nights during christmas and new year, on the way down to the alps. The welcome was incredibly warm by our hosts Patricia and Charles. They both seemed to have all the time in the world to chat to us, and to share their passion for the amazing property.

The property itself is well kept, the interior stylishly done but within keeping of its original design, and very comfortable. We didnt want to leave - its such a big, warm and welcoming house that you could easily spend a week here eating, sleeping and enjoying the house.

Location wise its great - just a few minutes from the motorway.

Breakfast was great, including fresh croissants and home made jam.

I wouldnt hesitate to recommend this to friends and family, and I will definitely be back. We spent a bit of time driving through the surrounding villages and it all looked fantastic. Well worth a return visit.
