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.
