This beautiful large property and it's delightful hosts, offered a welcome respite from our whirwind previous 3 days in Paris. Upon arrival, for our 3 night stay, it was a great pleasure to sit in the lovely tranquil, flower and bird filled garden, with a glass of wine.
The house is very large, and lovingly decorated and cared for by François, and Paco. Breakfast in the dining room, served on beautiful china, includes cheeses, fresh croissants, breads and homemade jam , marmalade, and honey, boiled eggs, juices, coffee, and François' daily fruit plate. One morning the fruit plate was pears marinated in Chateau neuf du Pape, another morning it was apples sauteed in butter and sugar. Delightful!
Our room, the Delacroix, is extremly large, with windows opening to the lovely gardens. The bathroom is also spacious. The tub is a lovely clawfoot, though getting in and out would present a challenge to anyone with mobility issues. The shower is strictly handheld.
The bed was my only issue. It was extremely firm and uncomfortable. I found it necessary to sleep on the more comfortable chaise in the room.
