Where to begin? The breakfasts: bountiful and with many choices on the table each morning. The (optional) dinners: very well prepared and tasty, with a different menu each evening. The rooms: spacious, clean and airy. The bed: so comfortable I fell asleep immediately.
We 3 Americans were traveling with our Swiss friend; he was an exchange student in our home 33 years ago. He was a former colleague of Katharina Hirt in Zurich, which is how we found this B&B. Lucky us. Our friend has serious food limitations, and Marcel and Katharina were able to meet his needs while feeding us "omnivores" well. With a full house, there were 12 people at the breakfast table, consistently fun folks. We shared a lot of travel ideas, such as the best of the chateaux to visit if one only had limited time. La Closerie St. Martin was our home for 6 days and nights; we took day trips each day. We wish he had allowed more time there with such good hospitality, food and wine. Ah yes! Dinner begins in the wine cave below the courtyard, with wine and hors-d'oeuvres.
