“2 weeks of utter relaxation” We stayed for two weeks at Chez Maison Bleue, 6 nights in the bed & breakfast and 8 nights in the gite. We took our 3 year old son and 3 month old daughter. The house and gite have been renovated in a very pleasing way and you are made to feel at home the moment you walk through the front door. Nothing was too much trouble and Carolyn had thought of everything for the kids.
It was great to be able to sample Nicks cooking whenever we were too exhausted to cook (which was often). Every meal was superb and Nicks knowledge of the local cuisine was extensive as was the extent of the local produce. The advice given to us on what to see and do by Carolyn and Nick was spot on.
The village itself is small and picturesque. It is a very peaceful and relaxing place. There is not a great deal to do in the village other than taking in the scenery and wildlife. There are also plenty nice walks and cycles. Within a short drive however there is plenty to do for families with young kids and we did something different most days.
I would heartily recommend this holiday to anybody who likes beautiful scenery, diverse culture and fantastic cuisine.
“Our brilliant stay at Chez Maison Bleue” We stayed here for 3 nights in July 2013 whilst we were watching Le Tour de France. Carolyn & Nick were very welcoming and our room was large and spacious with lots of nice toilettries in the bathroom.
We had breakfast and evening meal every day and the food was delicious. The breakfast was a selection of local fruits and bread, Nick makes his own jam's which were our favourite. With the meal were were offered a choice of wine, chilled and to our individual taste.
The rural location suited us as we were on a biking holiday. Nick was very kind and mapped us a route for us to ride.
It would be difficult to chose what was my favourite part of our stay as everything was amazing, we couldn't fault this accommodation. Carolyn & Nick will do everything to make sure you have a fantastic stay. I would highly reccommend this accommodation. We will definitely return in 2014!
