I see you mention room #12. On their website I don't see the rooms assigned numbers but rather names. But the reviews on tripadvisor mostly reference room #s. How can I know which rooms are what #s?
Rooms, 12, 13, and 14 are at the Villa La Campagnette, three miles from the main inn. the name of room 12 is Marie Antoinette. Incidentally, no oned pays for coffee at breakfast and even at dinner it is not 7.50.
This was the Chagall room.
Main House: Rooms #1-11 (listed in order) - Note: Mobile site has different room names
Villa la Campagnette:
Marie Antoinette (#12) - beautiful bath w/claw foot tub/no shower
Matisse (#13) - suite w/separate sitting room / steam shower / minimal storage space
Louis XIV (#14) - airy, spacious suite w/lots of light / steam shower and large wardrobe for storage
Sorry again, # 12 is Marie Antoinette, and #13 is the larger one called Matisse King Suite (which we ended up staying)
Dinner is quite fancy and not cheap, but we loved the food and thought it worth the $. Breakfast was so fresh (from local farm/mill etc.) and had very good choices.
The property very recently added French names to all their accommodations. I would suggest looking at the web site and choosing an accommodation because of its ambience, type of bed, etc. rather than worry about a number. All but three of the accommodations are located on the main property. The other three are located at a property about five miles away. All meals are served at the main historical inn. We have stayed at three different suites in the main inn, all very delightful and welcoming.
Wow...that person above looks like they cSn never be happy. Geez.
There are 2 places to stay: we were in the house a couple of miles from the larger home or the restaurant is located. Breakfast was served in the smaller house as well and cook by the chef owner.
We found it to be delightful.
Our room was located in this house as you climb the stairs and walk straight back. It was the door facing you as he walked on the hallway. It was quite a large room as well. This house was very quiet because it was off the major road. There's also a pool there but since it is late in the season I'm sure it's not open right now Hope this helps.
They must have named their rooms instead of numbers. I looked at the pictures and I think our room was Monet. BTW, there was a recent post about noise from the highway etc. We didn't hear a thing. Breakfast was included so I don't know what these folks were talking about when they referred to a charge for coffee. It's a lovely inn.
Sorry that I did not visit this site regularly. The room #12 is called Matisse King Suite (I believe). But please check with the Inn and make sure it's correct - it's been a while. You have free coffee in the room, and breakfast is all inclusive which means no charge for any drinks. The place is very quiet, at least while we were there. It was next to a road, but a country road with a farm cross the street. Good luck!
I would call the B&B to double check.
Hi @Valnjr1, all the rooms, all the buildings are next to a fairly loud (24/7) main route. There's road noise all night long, there's road noise for breakfast, there's road noise for dinner. And if you sit outside, the noise may even interrupt your romantic dinner conversation.
Get the free (already paid for) cup of coffee from your room, they want to charge $7.50 per cup for breakfast.
Go on a wine tour at a local winery, buy a $15-$25 bottle there. L'Auberge will charge 4 times as much for the same bottle. It's the same winery, same variety, and same vintage year, just 4 times more expensive.
The activities you do elsewhere can be enjoyable.
Go with little expectations and you will be pleasantly surprised. Expect the chef to understand 'medium', you will be disappointed. If you expect courteous service, or water glasses to be refilled, or your table attended-to for your needs, you will be disappointed.
Seriously, a weekend trip to Cancun or DR (to include airfare), will cost the same.
