Light years away from corporate repeats. You're charmed immediately as you drive several hundred yards by the side of the mill pond, through the forest in a delicious loop that leads to the exciting, sturdy structure of this old manor. A sight to see, and it was dripping with rain. You can sniff the history full into your lungs as you close the car door, and delight in the stone, brick and olde worlde ornamentation of the terraced entrance.
You'll be welcomed by the delightful owner, as she explains how the house runs, and leads you to the room. Ours was 2nd floor, €60 and with a view to die for, gardens, planted trees and shrubs and the forest beyond. And, nothing but bird song to lull us to sleep. But Not before a delicious moment in the lounge with a Suze apertif, and steps from the soothingly warmly decorated main lounge. Our meal was very well prepared, the owner's team clearly enjoying guiding us through a culinary adventure. From amuse bouche, through fresh and well prepared main course and dessert, and a nice list of local wines. A real surprise, a very good chef and in a lovely romantic setting. Need anything else?
Breakfast was standard and fresh, excellent coffee and jams, finishing a stay with the sunshine produced our vows to return asap. Here others have said, a peaceful gem, really excellent value for money, and excellent table off the beaten track but really worth it, highly deserves anybody's visit,
They'll have ours again soon.
