We were, unfortunately, only booked in for one night at 1 Rue St Nicolas and so wished we could have stayed longer. Our hosts, Sandra and Kevin, were so accommodating, warm and welcoming. Our arrival from the airport was late on the Saturday evening but they had a wonderful charcuterie platter waiting for us with aperitifs and generous wine, light as air pud and coffee. Their house is fabulously stylish, yet easy to feel at home in. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to other travellers who won't, I'm sure, be disappointed.
