This a charming B&B in Rochfort on the Atlantic coast of France. Helene, our host, is as charming as her home and they both radiate warmth and welcome We were driving from Britanny to the Dordogne and this was a lovely way station for us to spend the night. It was only unfortunate we had the 1 night as it could be a perfect place to settle and explore Bordeaux (without paying big city rates) and the many close-by wine areas such as the village of St. Emilion.
It is a large townhouse just off the village square wonderfully restored. There are 3 large rooms and a large common room for guests with sofas and television. Antique furnishings and sumptious fabrics abound in all the rooms. Next to the common room is a small kitchen for guests' use with refrigerator and microwave. Guests are welcome to use this and eat in the beautiful little garden. We were a couple but a family could be very comfortable there.
