Fodor's Review

With its ivy-covered stone, white shutters, mansard roof, dormer windows, and Rococo spiral staircase, this hotel looks like an 18th-century François Boucher painting. Inside, the guest rooms (some with original architectural features) are spacious, and, while hardly modern, come with cable TV, free Wi-Fi, and plenty of closet space. A lovely breakfast laden with local products (€9.40) is served in the beamed dining room by a roaring fireplace in winter or on the garden

terrace in summer. All in all, this is an excellent value for the money.
