There’s not many places you stay where you wish you could go back again one day, but this is one of them, and that’s what we did. Having stayed with Jo and Klaartje back in 2007, we always hoped to come back - and here we are again in 2013.
Ferrals is a small, nothing-special town, but is in the middle of a number of worthwhile sites in the region. But La Vigne Rousse makes the stay in Ferrals a must. There are 5 rooms in the house, plus one out the back. The house is a large, old mansion with lots of charm. Jo and Klaartje are exemplary hosts who bend over backwards to meet their guests’ needs. I’ve lost count of the number of languages they’re fluent in.
In addition, Klaartje is an outstanding cook and with enough notice will provide a dinner that’s worth coming back for. Meanwhile, Jo is a superb guest entertainment officer.
I really don’t know why there aren’t more Trip Advisor reviews for La Vigne Rousse. Perhaps it’s because most of their guests are non-English speakers.
