we usually spend our visits in France in the south where it is normally warm and predictable. This time, on a friends recommendation we decided to try Busserolles and La Maillerie. It turned out to be a great choice. A little cooler then the south but so much greener and so much less crowded. The Maillerie is a beautiful small hotelery in a jewel of a setting. There is a small river running through the grounds, on the banks of which you can sit and enjoy the lovely woods around you. The rooms are pleasant and comfortable and the hosts a delight to spend time with. Busserolles is both scenic and charming, with plenty of places to enjoy a meal or shop for your own cooking. Worth a visit.
