We stayed two nights at Saint Andre des Artes and as someone who notices details, I can say that Philippe is the kind of host that thinks of everything to make your stay comfortable.
Beds, with extra pillows were comfortable and the linens were nice. The air conditioner is a wall unit (instead of a window unit) which was barely noticeable when on.
Lighting was good, including bedside lights on each side, plenty of places to hang clothing and towels, and there were not one but two suitcase stands... You get the idea.
The location worked well for us, an easy walk to downtown, yet in the center of the village/latin quarter area. Breakfasts were tasty and continental-ish - I tend to need more protein in the morning, but the coffee was great and a full tea selection was available.
We had a room with a bathroom shared with just one other room, which was fine and very clean, access to the fridge and kitchen a real plus. Although the rooms were close to each other, noise did not travel.
We parked at the nearby library and it is between $9-12 per 24-hour period, depending on when you enter. That worked out just fine.
Really can't think of any downsides to staying here. Enjoy! Merci Philippe!
