Hôtel Diderot Review

With its ivy-covered stone, white shutters, mansard roof, dormer windows, and Rococo spiral staircase, this hotel looks like it is on sabbatical from an 18th-century François Boucher painting. Inside, things get darker and old-fashioned, but guest rooms are spacious, and, while hardly modern, are equipped with cable TV, free Wi-Fi, and plenty of closet space. Breakfast is served in the beamed dining room with roaring fireplace in winter, or on the garden terrace in summer, with over two dozen homemade preserves, fresh breads, cheese, yogurt, and fresh fruit. All in all, quite an excellent value for the money.
