“Immaculate”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

We spent five nights in this beautiful B & B with our children in the large family suite overlooking the river. The decor is exquisite - high ceilings and tall windows - tastefully furnished in true French style . Very comfortable beds and lovely breakfasts in the salon with Madame's homemade jams and local breads and croissant, fresh ripe fruits and yogurts. There is also a lounge off the hallway filled with books and magazines and tables and chairs in the garden overlooking the river,

Saintes is a lovely town with Roman ruins and a National Stud within walking distance. We found various good places to eat and would recommend a visit to nearby Chateau La Roche Corbon with its paleosite in the grounds (caves to explore).

Beautiful! We stayed at this chambre d'hotes for a night in August. We were looking for an overnight stay in Saintes and had been put off by the awful reviews of most of the other 'pit-stop' motel-types of hotel that we had quite happily stayed in all over France before. La Rotonde caught our eye, especially as it was virtually the same price as the above-mentioned hotels. We were so glad we chose it. The bedroom was lovely (it was the purple one on the photos - the 'Alcove' type but do not confuse this with the ones with the bathroom in the alcove.) This beautiful room looked out onto the river and was huge - there was even a fridge and a microwave tucked away in a separate alcove. The bathroom was lovely - just as in photos with a very modern shower as well as the bath. If you don't like French period decor then this place may not be for you, but it happened to be our wedding anniversary and it actually made it quite special. Breakfast was traditional French but plenty of it. Don't worry about this being a small b&b, it felt friendly and un-stuffy. We can speak French but the proprietor, a lovely lady who was very helpful, could also speak English. It's a hidden-gem this hotel and well worth trying even for an overnight. The rates for the immense studios were also fantastic - would be good for a base for longer.

Room Tip: Choose one with BED in alcove

We really enjoyed our stay at La Rotonde. Our hosts were charming and extremely patient with my mangled French, and the house is beautiful. We have a room overlooking the river, and it's a regal setting. It's within easy walking distance of the ampitheatre and the town centre. The rooms were incredibly clean, and furnished with beautiful antique furniture and linens.
