This is so much more than an average bed and breakfast. The bed and breakfast accommodation is in a separate house (the owners live in a house behind) and share two lounges and a kitchen. The whole house is on three floors and is so much bigger than it looks from the outside. Each bedroom (we had two) is a very good size (especially the top room) with its own bathroom and has lovely views over the quiet pretty square or a pretty courtyard. The house is beautifully furnished and fully equipped with everything you need. It was the perfect base for 4 nights for a family of four sharing two rooms. We originally looked at the hotels in Bergerac and this B & B was actually cheaper, included breakfast and gave you the space you would expect from renting out a town house, with a homely feel and personalised touch. The location was also better than the hotels in Bergerac. It was located in the old, beautiful part of the town where you literally walk out of the front door and walk along the cobbled streets, either down to the river or to one of the many fantastic restaurants. Breakfast is served in the owners' pretty enclosed courtyard where you can meet the other guests and chat to the lovely owners who were so friendly and made us feel extremely welcome. We are so pleased we chose this accommodation over the hotel. Thank you so much Rosetta and Bruce. It really is the perfect place to stay in Bergerac!
