“Loved it”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

This 15th-century home is lovingly cared for by Jacques and Micheline, who are the cutest couple ever. It is located on a narrow medieval street; we parked in a small park a block away and walked back to ring the bell. Jacques opened the gate into his pretty little courtyard and gave us directions (right, right, right) back and helped us maneuver the car in. We stayed in the Alice room, which is large, comfortable and stylishly decorated. Jacques & Micheline speak very little English and we speak very little French, but we managed to communicate. They gave us a map for Bourges; everything is an easy walk from the B&B. The cathedral is one of the very great Gothic masterpieces. The town is full of great half-timbered buildings. Jacques made reservations for us at Le Boubonnoux, which was one of our best meals on the two-week trip. This stay was a highlight for us.

Room Tip: Alice was a great room, but I imagine the others are as well.

Micheline and Jacques are very nice and kind people who enjoy being hosts. We came late evening and they greet us with freshly home baked very tasty prune pie - we felt like at home at once. We had a very pleasant conversation with them. They like their very-very old house which they renovated themselves with all respect to period details. It was not easy job - they showed us pictures how it looked when they bought it many years ago.
The house is located literally around the corner from famous Bourges Cathedral - about 3 minutes walk, on quiet old street - one of the oldest in the Bourges.
Our room was huge, with comfortable bed and modern bathroom. Everything was very clean and well decorated. We had Wi-Fi in the room. In the morning we had good breakfast: yogurt, fruits, croissants, jam, etc.
Jacques gave us map of Bourges along with some good suggestions. We liked Bourges very much and planing to visit it again. If we come - we'll definetely stay with Micheline and Jacques again

Room Tip: Room Alice on the 1 (French)-2(American) floor

If you happen to be staying in Bourges, stay here. What a delightful place, wonderful hosts, great rooms and perfect location close to the Cathedral. The owners go all out to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. I'd recommend it to everyone.
