Le Chalet Hotel
We stayed in Le Chalet hotel at the beginning of November during what turned out to be a memorably wet weekend, however, the welcome we received from Mme. Jaunault and her team could not have been warmer. The hotel is in the Rue De La Paix (a one way street) within a few minutes walk of the main shopping street, Rue Saint-Jean, and close to the outdoor market. Mme. Jaunault was particularly helpful suggesting parking places near the hotel – and remember to take enough coins for the parking tickets.
Our room at the hotel was stylishly decorated with a seaside theme and had a balcony overlooking the street, which in sunnier times would have given a glimpse of the sea and rooftops. Breakfast comprised of sweet cakes, croissants, fresh bread, yoghourt and tea/coffee and English is spoken as well as my brand of Franglais.
Don’t miss the covered market on Saturday and enjoy the sight of enthusiastic shoppers queuing at the fishmonger’s, butcher’s, and baker’ and chocolate shops that can be found in the vicinity. If you are walking about remember to take into account that the pavements are narrow and in wet weather full of puddles.
