We stayed 2 nights here at the beginning of March- so no surprise that for 1night we were the only guests.So we would not have been surprised to have a pretty basic dinner. But what we got was a lovely evening, eating in an intimate dining room with a log fire, and a full choice from their menu individually cooked.Madame was very relaxed about us choosing different items from the various fixed price menus.
The second night we had had a lunch out and so asked Madame for something light as a starter-and she produced a brilliant langoustine dish -little Filo pastry wraps of langoustine, with a cup of intense langoustine consommé and a foam of scallop row. Madame explained that if you start with the best ingredients(and most of the food she serves is organic)the rest is easy!
We had the "romantique"suite on the ground floor- very roomy, comfortable beds and a bathroom with a deep bath and a shower that produced instant hot water.
Apart from the wonderful food and comfortable rooms, what sets this hotel apart is the lovely,informal and friendly "Madame"- she really could not have done more to make us feel at home- and also patiently helped my attempts to speak French,although she speaks far better English!
