I could post a very long and positive review of this place but simply, if you are considering staying – DO IT! No need to read any further - you will not be disappointed.
Our room (Ecrivan) is apparently the smallest but was clean, comfortable, very large with character and well equipped. The public rooms, whole house and garden are large and full of character, but the perhaps the biggest selling point are the hosts themselves, Jake “front of house?” and Rob, master of the kitchen. Their attention to detail, enthusiasm and standards of service add substantially to the experience of staying here. Both speak fluent Dutch, German, French and English.
We stayed two, late summer, warm nights and had dinner both nights. Rob’s four course meals included wines specifically chosen to accompany and compliment each course at 30 euros all in.. Our first night was with a German couple and another German family with young children. Jake headed the table and in management speak, “facilitated” and it was a good social event, not hampered by our lack of German!
Initially we were disappointed to find that no one was booked to take a communal meal on the second night but it turned out to be our gain, eating al fresco on a lovely night in the garden with both Jake and Rob who are charming hosts. Rob’s obvious enthusiasm for creating dishes using local food and personal relationships with the producers adds another dimension to the meals.
All in all a memorable stay and it will come as no surprise that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
