We had the 2 rooms available in this b&b; the Oriental room downstairs, and the upstairs room which is actually part of the hosts house so you need to climb up their stairs and come in through their front door for access (not necessarily a problem at all, but just to be aware). Hosts could not have been more lovely or helpful and really went out of their way to welcome you into their home. We loved to Oriental room - having its own private entrance, & little patio area was lovely. The garden is beautiful and obviously loved; having the pool was great to cool off in, and use of the summer kitchen beside the pool was fabulous for preparing some easy meals. Location wise it couldn't be better; not even a hop skip or a jump, but a quick step into the town centre, leave the car in the yard and not have to battle to find a car park in busy St Remy - it was great. Don't hesitate to stay here, it's fabulous.
