We arrived at this (quirky) place and were a bit surprised to find that although we had a short as requested, the loo was next door.
The host is gracious and generous and we quickly got over it with a relaxing laze by the pool (cold water but in the heat it was lovely) and the ice creams that he kindly brought out for us.
The room was clean and the shower excellent.
Breakfast was a large affair with fruits, pastries, toasts, cakes, yoghurts etc. We were chatting with the other guests and the hosts and I explained that due to toothache and tablets my Fiancée couldn't try the local wines which was ironic because I wasn't as keen on Medoc wines. Our host disappeared and came back with a glass of cru bourgeois Pauillac red and cheeses and meat for me to try. I was sold and luckily he stocks as few bottles and I bought one.
Although slightly out of place with it's location, and having a split of two houses the hosts are so eager to help and please that I am happy to recommend it as a chamber d'hotes.
