Firstly, where do i start, my girlfriend and I were looking for a hotel in La Rochelle, and came across La Villa Cecile, we decided that with it being only 30minutes away from where we wanted it would be a good idea to book it, so after e-mails confirming our reservation it was booked, two nights in the king sweet. (recommend the kings sweet, a king size bed, (HUGE) a free standing bath in the middle of the room, colour changing lights, lovely design, TV, french doors open onto wooden patio.

We arrived on the Friday afternoon and was greeted by the owner of Villa Cecile who then helped us with bags and showed us around, (felt very welcoming unlike the normal check-in at big hotels) we were also met by Zac, a lovely dog who would come and say hello every morning when you went for breakfast he did not jump and was well behaved, do not be put off as he is lovely, I cannot say enough how clean and friendly Villa Cecile is. more like a 7* than 5*, as we were shown round we were told everything we needed to know, and when would we like breakfast, (usually its, breakfast will be served at 7-10 in most hotels). i couldnt believe it, hmm 8,9 or 10 so we went with 10am, so after a walk around we couldnt help but use the hot tub in the garden overlooking th town, we had full use whenever we wanted while we were staying. again it was spotless, we had our own robes provided by Villa Cecile, such a bonus!!!

we were then asked where we wanted to eat in the evening, what would they recommend for us and they booked it for us aswell, we went to a local restaurant for the first night as we had already done 12 hours of driving, it was beautiful, nice and local, i would recommend the wine and the steak was absolutely amazing, so juicy and rich, the chef was very helpful and the waitress helped us understand some of the menu as our french was a bit poor and there english was ok lol.

now to move onto breakfast, when you go for breakfast it is an experience on its own, the table for starters is decorated differently every morning, this was a lovely feature, then we had freshly squeezed orange juice (i could of drunk a litre of this), a choice of tea or coffee, added to this was the sugar, if you had a pink love heart sugar it changed your tea to pink lol, my girlfriend loved this!! we then had a qoisante (spelt wrong i know lol) with fresh bread, followed by freshly made pancakes cooked by the wife of the owner of Villa Cecile, fantastic quality and service. on our last day we had some special french bread which had sugar coating on, (was amazing) and was given a handshake and a goodbye. not only do they offer a top rated service at villa cecile but the atmosphere and friendliness is the best i have ever experienced and ,my girlfriend would agree, , we will be going back again and again. thankyou very much,

Room Tip: La king size est un paradis, elle comporte une terrasse ombragée de rosiers et une baignoire également king size.
