We stayed for one night on our way back to Calais from the Ile de Re. The hotel is in a small town, near Le Mans, called Loue, in the centre of the chicken breeding area! The owners, Anne-Cecile and Ludovic Deschamps, are the most delightful, helpful hosts, so the visit got off to a good start, particularly when Ludovic described our dog as a V.I.D.- Very Important Dog!! We had reserved the Pavillon de Source, an idyllic little cottage right on the river bank, with a small private patio, overlooking the river, complete with 12 ducks. Sadly, the weather was very showery, but we managed an hour outside, before a deluge! Dinner was absolutely superb and beautifully presented, with Anne-Cecile taking great care to explain each course, in English. It happened to be the weekend of the Le Mans 24 hour race and the hotel was full, but the meal was served leisurely, but not overlong. Breakfast was good, with delicious softly boiled eggs and "soldiers", if required. We can't wait to return, hopefully in the Autumn.
