My husband and I made a last minute decision to go to the Jura mountain region and chose this B&B from prior reviews. How lucky we were! Igor and Mariane (the owners) make you welcome from the moment you arrive. The room is large and comfortable (part of a 2 room suite but they don't rent the second room if you are only one couple...but a great set-up for 2 couples or a family if needed). The bathroom is also large and has everything you need, bath/shower combo, hair dryer, bathrobes, slippers, extra toiletries if you need them...the owners go out of their way to take care of your every need. Each morning we enjoyed a fabulous breakfast of fresh ingredients, which Mariane would modify as you requested, and beautifully presented, along with a view over the river. What a great way to start our day. Both Igor and Mariane spent time giving us ideas of what to see and do in the area, along with loaning maps we may need, for hiking in out of the way places, beautiful drives, you name it. We initially had planned to stay 2 nights...but stayed 5 nights because we absolutely loved the place and the owners. They make you feel at home and like family. What more can you ask for? Highly recommend and would definitely stay here again and again.
