Our self-drive holiday to the French Alps took us via Parc Asterix, so we chose L'Aunette Cottage as a convenient base. Located close to Senlis (a delightful town), the small hotel was ideal for our party travelling with 2 teenage boys. The garden is charming (possible to eat outside in the evenings if the weather is good) with a small but delightful pool. The property has been very tastefully renovated, offering simple decor and well appointed rooms (including a kettle and tea/coffee facilities). A lovely communal dining room/sitting room, with open fires during the colder months, is set within a separate outbuilding. The hotel offers a simple dinner menu during weekday evenings, which was especially convenient on the evening of our arrival, altho' we chose to go into Senlis for a meal on our second evening. Locally-brewed beers and other drinks were also available during the day, served in the garden or by the pool. The hotel's clientele was very mixed during our stay - a couple of families with young children and babies (the rooms were equipped with baby monitors), a honeymooning couple, a single business woman, whilst on the Friday evening there was a rush of professional young couples obviously seeking peace and quiet for a weekend break.
We would return, perhaps with friends for a short break. The price is not inexpensive but it was good value and provided a more charming alternative to chain hotels. I had also looked at hotels in Senlis and when we visited the town during our stay I would say that parking is an issue. Having said that, getting into the car park at L'Aunette Cottage was quite an interesting procedure as it's on the narrow main street through the village and got our automatic parking warning alarms beeping hysterically! Loved the hotel though and the weather was perfect which made it an ideal choice (also very well situated for Parc Asterix).
