We have just spent seven nights at this very special B&B and believe that it is Franck who makes the place so amazing. He is the supreme host with impeccable attention to detail. Sure, the home is very pleasant, however, what makes it different to others is the effort that the hosts have put in to ensure that their guest's stay is relaxed and hassle free.
Breakfast was always an experience never to be rushed but to linger while enjoying the company of other guests. Franck demonstrated his culinary skills each morning and if you can encourage him to make pancakes, we can recommend them. Also, the variety of home made jams and breads is vast.
Depending on the level of accommodation selected, the rooms have varying degrees of comforts. We stayed in the Angel's room which was adequate for our needs. The room was cosy, shower excellent and even pressure. Toiletries supplied were good quality, drink's fridge on the landing ensured a good supply of water and juice as needed. We also used it to store the delicious French pastries purchased from several of the numerous Patisseries in the immediate area.
The home is very central and only a ten minute walk from the local train station. There is a vast array of eating places ever so close. They range from brasserie to French cuisine, Italian, Chinese and even traditional Western style meals. However, the restaurants do not open until 7PM by which time we were quite hungry so were always first there.
Overall, a most enjoyable experience in Arras.
