We stayed here for one night last year on the way to Provence, and a short little touring of South Burgundy including Tournus and Cluny. We had a wonderful stay at Les Darbonnets. The host and hostess were lovely. We did the Table d'hote, and the dinner was wonderful, unfortunately there were no other guests that night. The room is beautiful, and the lovely breakfast is highlighted by 10 different confitures, all homemade and grown in their garden!!
The best part was meeting their sweet pet donkeys! They keep them as pets, and they are very friendly and of course love getting their treats. So cute!
If you are in this area and want a lovely place to stay, charming hosts, and wonderful food, do not miss Les Darbonnets!
