Les Carmes, Chambres d'hotes de charme du Haut-Jura
Ranked #1 of 2 Saint-Claude B&B and Inns
Reviewed 2 November 2013

Staying with Mariane and Igor is a great experience. You feel all the warmth of staying in a friend's home whilst having your own space and privacy. The house is beautiful and in a great location near the centre of Saint Claude. Mariane does a wonderful breakfast with exceptional local food and is something to be savoured. The area is lovely yet peaceful and quiet and plenty to do for adults and children. Most of all though we appreciated advice, conversation and time spent with the owners which made it more than just a bed and breakfast.

We booked on the strength of the previous reviews and hoped we wouldn't be too disappointed. Trip Advisor is hard to "read" sometimes: everyone has different expectations and priorities. But this is the real deal: a truly exceptional B+B, possibly the best I have stayed in.

Beautiful house (see previous reviews); warm, charming welcome (ditto); spotlessly clean, large, lovely room (ditto); superb breakfast (ditto). Plus an excellent bed and lots of personal touches to make you feel like a geuinely welcome guest.

St. Claude is going through hard times right now: lots of boarded-up shops and empty houses in the centre. We were, frankly, slightly alarmed by our first impression. But the surrounding countryside is magnificent, with lovely walks and spectacular views. And once you walk through the door, the quality of service in all the little shops we visited was a surprise – no hint of down-trodden recession bitterness. Once again we realised that it is not just the scenery and the food, but above all the people which make the Jura such a very special place to come on holiday.

Mariane and Igor run the sort of place that all B&Bs should aspire to be. Beautifully laid out, glorious location, wonderful welcome. My only complaint was that Chip the dog was only around for one evening!

Parking is difficult in place des Carmes. Stay on your toes!

My husband and I made a last minute decision to go to the Jura mountain region and chose this B&B from prior reviews. How lucky we were! Igor and Mariane (the owners) make you welcome from the moment you arrive. The room is large and comfortable (part of a 2 room suite but they don't rent the second room if you are only one couple...but a great set-up for 2 couples or a family if needed). The bathroom is also large and has everything you need, bath/shower combo, hair dryer, bathrobes, slippers, extra toiletries if you need them...the owners go out of their way to take care of your every need. Each morning we enjoyed a fabulous breakfast of fresh ingredients, which Mariane would modify as you requested, and beautifully presented, along with a view over the river. What a great way to start our day. Both Igor and Mariane spent time giving us ideas of what to see and do in the area, along with loaning maps we may need, for hiking in out of the way places, beautiful drives, you name it. We initially had planned to stay 2 nights...but stayed 5 nights because we absolutely loved the place and the owners. They make you feel at home and like family. What more can you ask for? Highly recommend and would definitely stay here again and again.

Room Tip: The only other room besides the 2 bedroom suite is a lower terrace room. Did not see it, but its ri...
