I spent two nights with my father and eldest son in this charming B&B to use as a base for visiting WW1 sites in the Argonne/Verdun area. Marianne is a charming host with fluent English. Rooms were clean, spacious and elegantly decorated. Breakfasts were croissants, home-made jams, cakes and cereals. We had evening meals at the house both nights - delicious home-made pates, quiche lorraine, salads, rhubarb crumble, chocolate mousse with local apertifs, red wine and digestifs - a French delight! Location was excellent, ca 15 mins from A4 motorway but very quiet and rural. Marianne gave directions to fascinating WW1 sites - Lachlade, Kaiser Tunnel, Abri de Kronprinz and the beautiful American cemetery at Romagne (where we chanced on a Memorial Day ceremony). The house is about 20 mins drive from Verdun. Overall, superb accomodation, food, hospitality and value. I look forward to returning.
