This lovely little hotel is in a beautiful village, so typically French and right on the doorstep of the famous Abbey! The room was very nice and the food was fantastic: great breakfast buffet and both evening dinners were of a very high standard.

Location is directly in the center of the village adjacent to the Abbey. Lots of special character here. Irina was the front desk clerk and she couldn't have been lovelier.

Spent 3 nights with friends. Their choice as they like the quirkiness of many logis. I like the good ones but struggle with the more basic establishments.
