“Wonderful stay, charming host, truly delightful experience!”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

This B&B has a great (and safe!) location near the harbor of La Rochelle. The house itself is beautifully furnished and decorated, the rooms are clean, spacious and of the highest quality, and angelique, the host, is incredibly friendly and caring. The French breakfast is served in a wonderful little courtyard in the front of the building -- all in all, an uncomplicated and surprisingly luxurious stay.

This gem of a B&B is a little difficult to find as there is only a small plaque on the wall to announce its presence. But it's well worth persevering for the sheer loveliness of it. There's but a handful of rooms. The room we stayed in was charmingly decorated with a view over the square.

Breakfast was excellent with a good choice of breads, croissant and what appeared to be home made preserves.

But what really made it for us was the welcome we received.

If there is a down side it's not the hotel per so but the fact that parking is so difficult. There is a car park in the square by the hotel (for which payment is required) and a free car park about five minutes walk away but at the height of the season it's difficult to find a space at any time of the day. The good thing is that once you've found a parking spot you can leave it there for your entire stay as the hotel is positioned very close to the town centre and the beaches.

Charming B and B in ideal position, close to everything. Only 15 min walk to station too! Room spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished, with full bathroom en suite. Our hostess most helpful. Breakfast was delicious, fresh produce continental style, served out on patio when weather permitted. Overall a quality establishment, and priced accordingly. There was a little street noise, but understandable considering central position, it was minimised with shutters closed at night. We highly recommend and plan to return when next in La Rochelle! Thank you!
