La Vasconia
Ranked #1 of 2 Bougival B&B and Inns
Reviewed 25 November 2013

My son and I stay in chambre Marine when we go to La Vasconia and nothing has changed in the years we have been visiting. The hospitality of Jean Pierre is second to none, he is always there when you need anything and he serves up a great breakfast. The room is spotless, the area is great with easy access to Paris and the surrounding, classy towns. If you are in the area you will not be disappointed with La Vasconia.

Room Tip: All the rooms are top notch.

La Vasconia has a great place to stay. It is very close to Versailles and just a train ride to Paris. The station is a few minutes walk.The rooms are well presented and comfortable. there is a pretty garden to enjoy. Jean Pierre is a lovely host and makes an excellent breakfast that includes his homemade cakes.
Parking is easy in the leafy street.

I visited La Vasconia when on a research trip recently. The house is in a quiet, leafy residential area, just a short walk from the train station. My room had every creature comfort including a large flat screen TV with satellite stations and a VCR player, and the bathroom was truly luxurious. Just outside the French doors, was a lovely garden. But the best part of my stay there was the warm welcome. Jean-Pierre went way beyond the call of duty. He drove me into the center of Bougival, researched my transportation back to Orly, made dinner reservations at a charming restaurant just a short walk away. And he cooks a wonderful breakfast. His French toast scented with orange is the best I've ever had. Even the jams were home made.

Five of us were cycling from London to Paris (using Donald Hirsch's low-traffic route guide) and needed somewhere stay near Versailles, before our intended visit to the Palace and completing the last short leg of our journey into Paris centre. La Vasconia was well placed for us cyclists, not too far off our route and also easy for another friend to visit by train from Paris. My room was the "Rotonde" which was great, light and airy, clean and spacious; there's a hair dryer plug near a mirror too which my wife always rates as important. My friends liked their rooms too although the couple in the cheaper room called "Marine" said they couldn't figure out how to close the blinds (it was very late by then), so were awoken in the morning by bright light. I didn't see it myself and so can't comment.
Best of all was our host, Jean-Pierre Pilard, who took sympathy when we 5 exhausted cyclists arrived late evening a few miles away with only a 1cm=1km map and no clue as to how to find Bougival. He came to find us and lead the way to his place and even booked us table at one of the few restaurants that were open not far away. Very friendly, helpful and accommodating.

Room Tip: Rotonde or Manoir

I have had the pleasure of staying at La Vasconia several times and it has never failed to impress. The house is beautiful, surrounded by a lovely garden with choice of 3 immaculate rooms. Breakfast is not to be missed! There is ample choice of fresh bread, meat, cheese, jams, yoghurt, tea, coffee, juice, fruit and of course the legendary pastries which Jean Pierre bakes fresh daily. Nothing is too much trouble and it really feels like home. From central Paris take the short train ride from St Lazare or La Defense direct to Bougival and from there it is a very easy 5 minute walk to La Vasconia. Perfect if you want a quiet, relaxing holiday with all the pleasures of Paris within easy reach.

Room Tip: All 3 rooms are stunning; beautifully furnished, comfortable and clean.

We were at the end of 2 weeks touring the small towns around Paris, and this was the perfect storybook ending. Jean-Pierre was very helpful with sight-seeing information. Great restaurant tips and each breakfast was unique and delicious. Our room was beautifully furnished with extra touches and very comfortable as well. What a pleasure to meet both Marie-Dominique and Jean-Pierre in their beautiful home and garden which made for a wonderful experience.

We are looking forward to staying there again.

We wanted to spend an evening in Versailles, and one day in Paris. Therefore, we were looking for a B & B in between .. After I was already 25 years in many B & B all over the world, I can say with certainty that La Vasconia was one of the finest and best accommodations. Jean Pierre has served us every morning homemade cake and a very fine breakfast at a beautifully set table. His hospitality and helpfulness would not have been better. The rooms were very clean and with style. Jean Pierre gave us many good information. The "La Vasconia" we can highly recommend and we are determined to return there oureself.
