Jan offered us some excellent information about the area and she was a very welcoming host. The B&B is located in a very charming, peaceful village - I am glad that we had the car so that we could explore the wider area too.

I stayed here for 3 nights with a friend back at the beginning of April. Jan was a wonderful host and have us ample information about the region. The rooms were very comfortable and had a lot of charm. Jan also provided a great and filling breakfast. Plus, there are two adorable cats! What's not to love?! I would highly recommend staying here if you are in the region.

My primary interests are art and local history, and of course French cuisine and culture. I have created an English style Mediterranean garden here which is at its best April to early July. I also love to take photos, paint furniture and decorative art, which you can see throughout the house.
