Having travelled a lot ourselves we have a feeling for what our guests like. What we appreciate in our guests is respect for property and other guests. Let us know if anything goes wrong and we'll do our best to make things right. Bring a smile and a sense of adventure.
Waking up somewhere completely different, wandering down a street where spices, strong coffee, or the intoxication of fresh city and landscapes, and the freedom to explore....this is what keeps us going. Having travelled widely and ventured down many roads, a highlight of many trips have been the people that we have met along the way. From New Zealand and France, we speak fluent English and French and some Spanish.
Charm, conviviality, and yes after a long day, a comfortable bed are great comrades on the road. This is what we enjoy discovering elsewhere and aim to provide at our B&B in Ardeche, France.
