What an amazing Bed and Breakfast!
We stayed in the Chambre Insolite for a couple of nights whilst travelling around France on our honeymoon. We were greeted by the owners with a real warmth that is hard to find. Despite us turning up far too early having not really clocked onto the check in time they quickly sorted out the finishing touches to our room while giving us some tips on where to visit.
The room was amazing. Having stayed in a remote 'eco-lodge' the week before hand with a shower that had to be heated up by a log fire (amazing fun!) we were desperate for a hot bath. We were not disappointed! The finish in the room is superb, along with slippers and dressing gowns we were treated to a whole selection of bath soaks, an ipod/phone dock, candels etc etc etc. We had our own private enterance at the back and we could even store our bikes in the garage. I could go on and on...
The breakfasts were always superb with freshly squeezed orange juice, the usual pastries etc in addition to that we were treated to pancakes one day and bacon and eggs the next.
The owners were wonderful. One evening they even treated us to a bottle of fizz which was very well recieved. They made us feel very special and went above and beyond what would be expected of them.
The location is perfect being just a few minute walk from the harbour front.
We are so happy that we chose to stay here and will definitly be back!
