“Cozy Country Cottage with Fabulous Owners!”
Reviewed 25 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

First off, if you're looking for a 5* hotel, this may not be your place. If you're looking for a typical home for this part of the French countryside, this cottage is wonderful! The owners had used it for summer holidays mostly, so they kindly installed two electric heaters before my arrival. They were also excellent about communicating all of the information I would need for my stay (assuming I'd been familiar with European doors that is)! TIP: Non-Europeans, you have to turn the handle as far up as it will go to lock & unlock the door.

It was very easy to confirm my booking, obtain the key and settle in. The owners also nicely left wine, beer & water for my arrival so I didn't arrive late and have nothing. I did find that the cottage was still quite cold in the evenings, so you'll likely want to build a fire if you stay during cooler months; however, the wood & quick starter cubes are provided. I am staying for an extended time, but thought I'd post a review after a week as that is more similar to the experience of a typical traveler.

Outside of it being a little cool and a few cob webs, everything was quite comfortable and clean. You're in the country and right on a slow-moving river, so a few spiders and mosquitoes found their way inside while I was there, but nothing unexpected.

The house was well equipped with dishes, towels, bedding, hand & body soap (like you'd find in a hotel), dish soap, etc. I'm not sure if the owners will change this with a higher volume of rentals (I was the first), but during my stay there were also spices and mosquito repellents that were offered for my use.

There is no internet currently, but I used "My Webspot" to rent a mobile unlimited Wi-Fi hotspot. Total cost was still less than area hotels with much more convenience and comfort!
