Where do I start? Off the beaten track in the real French countryside sits this amazing little place! We were greeted the traditional French way by an English couple from Brighton/Hove! This is a unique place - if you just want to check in and sleep don't go here, if you want to be social and get on with cats, dogs, ducks, and a cracking couple then DO go here! - The price was excellent, the service outstanding, the food was awesome, the company was cracking!!!
A four course evening meal and a three course breakfast with all the trimmings plus free wi-fi unlimited drinks and private secure parking for 82 euros ( 70 pounds) yes you heard it right! No way you'd get this in the UK.
Carl and Julia prepare your meal to your liking and then sit down and eat with you, chat with you, exchange stories and have a right old laugh. The building is none smoking but Carl will happily stand outside with you and have a smoke and a good old down to earth chat with you (as he did with me).
Granted looking at some of the above reviews, there are only 2 rooms and yes they are small but for the price/package what do you expect - this is a truly unique place. Our radiator wasn't working (in the room) but we were sorted out with an electric radiator so the room would stay warm. Everything we could want we were granted. (anyone who puts a place down due to one radiator not working isn't realistic). Both rooms are en-suite and shampoo/soap etc is provided.
The food is home made, we couldn't finish breakfast as we were still full from dinner!! Vessey is a traditional French village - it's advisible to speak at least some French as it's principally a non English speaking area which only add's to the charm. However Carl & Julia are English so they can assit you there.
This couple are a real couple they are REAL people, and will we be going again? Most deffinetly!! It was unique experience and one that we shall never forget. It's difficult to find if you don;t know the area but that itself is part of the charm - as Ozellucia pointed out above this place really is a hidden gem. And if you know exactly where your going and plan your holiday to the last second it's no fun, part of the unique charm of this amazing place is trying to find it, but when you do it's deffinetly worth it!!!
