La Raimonderie was one of six bed and breakfast establishments in which I stayed for one night only between Venice to Roscoff on my journey from my home in Greece to a holiday cottage in Ireland. I enjoyed them all but La Raimonderie was special. Ancient buildings expertly and tastefully converted to provide first class accommodation. My 'room' was in fact an entire two-storey, detached building. On the comfortably warm ground floor room of the building I slept soundly in a huge bed under massive wooden beams. The room had room enough for the bed, a dining table and four chairs and a capacious sofa set before a massive open fireplace and chimney behind which was a fully-fitted and equipped kitchen, bathroom and washing machine. Upstairs there was another room large enough for a normal sized double bed and a small single.
An excellent breakfast was taken in another of the converted buildings, this one very light and airy.
My only regret was that my itinerary did not allow me to tarry longer at this charming place with its equally charming hosts.
