My wife & I have just spent Easter at Le Clos d'Argenson. We normally stay in good hotels when we travel, so a French guesthouse was a new experience for us. We saw the reviews in TripAdvisor & booked Le Clos for 3 nights. In pre-arrival correspondence, the proprietors seemed very helpful & offered to meet us at the airport on arrival without charge. We were duly met by Laurence & driven by her to the lovely, large townhouse that she & partner Pascal own & run. Pascal & Laurence are a charming, friendly, welcoming, efficient, helpful & knowledgeable couple. They went out of their way to ensure that every detail of our stay was to our complete satisfaction. We had the suite at the rear of the house on the second floor. This comprised a spacious sitting room with en suite shower & double handbasin room, connecting to a perfectly adequately sized double bedroom with en suite toilet & separate washroom. The suite was beautifully appointed with a mixture of old fittings & artifacts with a few modern touches. The large bed was very comfortable with high quality linen & pillows. The whole, very spacious house, which is open to guests throughout their stay, is a delight. There is a wonderful marble spiral staircase, with a spacious lounge overlooking the square outside, a room with a billiards table, a lovely dining room overlooking the attractive, spacious garden with its fair-sized swimming pool, & a small well-equipped kitchen, complete with fridge containing white wine for the guests to enjoy without charge. Whenever we appeared in the morning (there is no question of set times for breakfast), the dining room table would be laid for us with a good selection of cereals, local breads & croissants, home made cake, cheeses, conserves, orange juice, yogurts, fresh fruit, etc. Once seated, Pascal would appear & make us delicious fresh coffee. Our rooms were serviced to a high standard whilst we were out during the day. The guesthouse is ideally situated for sightseeing in the old Medieval town which is delightful. There are a number of fine restaurants within easy walking distance & Pascal & Laurence are very happy to make recommendations & reservations for guests. We opted to take up the option for our hosts to prepare dinner for us on Saturday night & they duly prepared a delicious three course meal with included drinks, which we took with them & their charming son, all for a very reasonable cost. All in all, our long weekend could not have been bettered. I cannot recommend this establishment too highly.
