I booked this wonderful, idyllic,quiet converted water mill, bed and breakfast over the internet from Australia as it was in the area where my grandfather ended WW1 at Armistice. It was our first night in France after crossing the channel Dover _Calais so we booked full board. Didn't know what to expect, but my goodness the rooms are spacious, beautiful, well furnished, with ensuite and everything you need. The evening meal started with Hors D'ouvres and samples of the local Alsace wine and Cremant (why bother with Champagne). We were then served local cuisine, a very flavoursome traditional Pot Feu more wine, and finished with a simple caramelised flambe' pineapple desert, cheeses, coffee tea etc.
Quite frankly the hospitality we received from Michel and his wife was first rate and you really felt that you were his invited guest in his own home.
The whole place is wonderfully furnished with a mix of antiques and artifacts from around the globe. The grounds and garden bounded by a mill leat are serene and tranquil. We only wish it were closer to North Queensland because we would certainly visit fairly often.
The village of Artres is pretty cute as wellMore
