I have now stayed twice at Maison du Dr Vassaux, both times being one night stopovers when journeying between the UK and the south of France. The Maison is very comfortable with large, clean and very pleasant rooms - I stayed in the top room.The breakfast is excellent. Although St Saens is small, it is a very pleasant place. The host, M.Blondel, is happy to advise on where to go to visit and to eat and gives good advice! He is knowledgeable about the the history of the house and it's namesake original owner. An interesting conversation about Dr Vassaux and the Impressionist painters can be had readily over a glass of local cider.
