This lovely b&b is a great find and we'll certainly be returning. We stayed a couple of nights in the Orb room up on the second floor, very tastefully decorated and with a large comfortable bed. Tea and coffee making facilities were provided in our room as well as complimentary bottled water.
The bathroom (which is just across the corridor but no-one else goes upstairs so is perfectly private) has a lovely big bath and separate shower with one of those huge, drenching shower heads (though French plumbing being what it is, you have to turn it off occasionally to allow the water to drain out of the somewhat shallow tray). Another nice touch is the provided hairdryer with a long extension lead (don't ask... French electrics being what they are, say no more).
Our hosts, Chris and Susan (and Dude the dog), were welcoming and friendly and we shared a very pleasant glass of wine with them on our second evening. They provided an excellent breakfast and Chris took with good-humoured equanimity my error on the second morning when I misread the alarm and arrived for breakfast far too early, thereby sending him off hotfoot to the bakery!
Cessenon is a quintessentially French village, with all you need in respect of shops, bars and restaurants as well as a pleasant pebble beach by the river, a two-minute walk from the centrally situated Maison la Fontaine! We love it!
