We just spent a really enjoyable 4 day stay at La Croix Blanche to celebrate the New Year. The dinner on New Years Eve was to 'die for' whilst not cheap ( on this evening you wouldn't expect it to be ) and the selection of local wines accompanying each course were superb
This is not a luxury hotel but our rooms were spacious warm and spotlessly clean. The staff and proprietors were very friendly and attentive.
The only downside was the weather was pretty poor, and on New Year's Day we had expected to do some 'chateau visiting ' but I suppose not surprisingly they were all closed for the day, which did leave us 'scratching our heads' what to do.
This is our 4th visit and we will certainly be returning, hopefully in the summer when all the flowers are in bloom
