In a quiet pedestrian street, La Devinière is a quaint guest house where you feel that every object has a story to tell.

This is our second visit. Last year the owner could not have been more charming but this year he seemed to be rather less welcoming. His card machine refused to work and one rather got the impression that it was somehow our fault as he slapped our card on the table! Ours was a
