"Charles was a fantastic host, the property is gorgeous and I was simply amazed by the size of the room and the bathroom. Delicious breakfast after a great night's sleep. As an animal lover I was also thrilled with Dram and Digger, the two friendly dogs who are eager to play but know to stay out of the guest rooms."

"My partner and I stayed here with some friends for a wedding, and we were so glad we booked it. The rooms are all done up perfectly with super comfortable beds, an excellent shower and even a coffee maker, all while keeping the character of the house and at a very reasonable price. Charles and Chris cooked us a delicious dinner on our first night and were happy to give us tips on the local area. I would definitely recommend their place for a stay in the Loire."

"Almost certainly one of the best B&Bs I have stayed in. Chris and Charles were so welcoming, I think by the end of our stay it felt more like we were family than paying guests. We took the option of having dinner with them on our first night, which was good value, delicious (more food than we could eat!) and gave us the opportunity to relax and get to know our hosts better. Chris and Charles were incredibly helpful, both before and during our trip, in advising us about local attractions, restaurants, vineyards etc, and went above and beyond to make us feel at home. We even took the opportunity to take their very friendly (and energetic!) dogs out on a walk of the local area, which was a highlight of our trip. I would highly recommend this place to anyone, and I certainly hope to have the opportunity to visit again."

"La gentillesse de notre hôte, Charles. Il a partagé avec nous sa connaissance de la région et nous a très bien orienté selon ce que nous souhaitions faire. Nous avons très bien mangé également à la table d'hôte et nous avons passé une excellente soirée avec les autres clients. Excellente ambiance, très conviviale.

Chambre Melrose au top, grande, calme et confortable, super décoration. Début de vacances au top!!! "

"Das Hotel hat nur vier Zimmer. Es wird von einem englischen Ehepaar betrieben and befindet sich in einem ruhig gelegenen, neu renovierten Bauernhof. Unser Zimmer war sehr groß und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Die Betreuung ist außerordentlich herzlich und freundlich. Auf Wunsch kann man für 25 € ein von den Wirtsleuten selbst gekochtes, hervorragendes 4- Gänge Menu mit Aperitiv, Wein und Kaffee erhalten. Einfach phantastisch!! Kann man nur empfehlen."

"Without doubt our best B&B stay ever. We stayed while we were attending a wedding nearby, and were so glad we picked to stay here. The hosts gave us a warm welcome when we turned up, made us truly feel at home and helped us with a lot of great advice. The house is gorgeous - it's been fantastically and exceptionally tastefully renovated and decorated. We've stayed in countless luxury hotels over the years but have never slept as well as in the bed here - so much so that we noted down the make of the bedding and are going out shopping for the same.... Everything was perfect!"
