We spent 21 days in France this summer and liked this B&B the least. There were several things that just felt...creepy.
To begin with, you better have a REALLY good map. The traffic in this area is terrible and it is difficult to find the street and difficult to find parking. We had about a 4 block walk to the B&B. The area is somewhat seedy. It's very loud at night, we listened to a drunk guy yell and scream at someone for half the night. My husband is over 6 ft. and even he did not feel terribly safe on the walk back from the castle ( about 30 minutes).
To enter the B&B you buzz from the main street. You then enter a dark, dusty main hall with other building residents. Then you are buzzed through another door to enter the B&B's area. To be honest, we felt like we were in the storage area of an old antique store...it's just different. You walk up a large staircase to the B&B. There is no common area and the entrance area is filled with beat up furniture.
Our room was spacious and decorated with beautiful Provencial fabrics. The bathroom was large, modern and clean. However, the entire experience just felt creepy. WE couldn't leave the windows open because of the noise on the streets and I was bothered by a dead rat we saw on the street..
Breakfast was ok...but, the least generous of anywhere we had stayed. Some bread, a bit of jam, coffee and yogurt. We both had the feeling we should hurry up and eat, pay our bill and move on. We were thankful we only spent one night here.
