Rooms are clean and comfortable with high ceilings. Some are unique: the Tintin room features twin beds with bedspreads and pillows of the French cartoon character, framed comic books and Vincent''s painting of Tintin in space on the windows. The Balcony room opens onto its own private balcony. There''s a Penguin room decorated with... well, you get the idea. With rooms available on different floors and a few different kitchen/breakfast areas, the B&B can simultaneously host a family and provide a romantic hide away. Make sure Vincent or Sandrine knows what type of experience you are looking for so they can take care of the logistics.
Continental breakfast is served each morning around 9 am - 9:30 on Mondays. This relatively late start is because croissants and baguettes are bought fresh from a nearby patisserie each morning. They don''t open until 8:30 am - 9 on Mondays - so that defines the breakfast hour! Coffee, juice and cold cereals are available earlier.
Limitations: no air conditioning which is not usually a problem, limited parking (3 spaces), the continental breakfast may be less hearty than some expect, breakfast may be served too late for some.
