Great place to use as a base. Beautiful Charming house and rooms. Pool and outdoor dining area are first rate. I need to mention as well the hosts were very nice. However, it also needs to be mentioned that upon arrival (an hour early) our host greeted us in a negative manner due to the previous guests leaving late (15 minutes late apparently - as noted below by fofie45). All we wanted to do was drop our bags off and leave and explore the area. We didn't even want our room yet. But we couldn't even get a 'hello' out of our mouths. Again, this is not the way to greet guests upon arrival. For breakfast we were 9 people. 5 adults and 4 kids. As there were other guests staying, we shared a table and apparently our kids were not allowed to sit at the table, as the lady of the house came out and said the other spots are for the other guests (table fits 9). Well that's fine if she had told us in the first place and secondly where do our kids sit if there are no other tables?? Even another couple sitting nearby (whom we didnt know) intervened for us and asked the lady where will the children sit? Lastly, if you ask for one more croissant, you won't get it. My 3 year old wasn't entitled to one. :) seriously. The amount of money we paid and you can't even give a croissant to a 3 year old?
Besides this, the place was great and the Monsieur of the house was very nice in explaining the area and things to do. As well as apologetic for his wife. It must be said she was nice as well, but obviously overwhelmed for the b & b business.
It's a shame that most of this is negative, as there were high points in this stay. But unfortunately, you always remember and need to point out the negatives for future clients.
