We were lucky to stay at La Porte Guillier for two nights in August 2013. We booked on-line after reading some lovely reviews and can honestly say it was one of our favourite places in France. Jangui is a perfect host and we felt truly at home in his space. Our room was romantic and airy, with a wonderful view of the square below. The decor is beautifully simple, with many interesting pieces of artwork and furniture. The town of Semur is picture-perfect. We loved wandering the narrow streets, exploring the ramparts and picnicking along the river under a tree-canopy in a rainstorm. Merci beaucoup Jangui!
