Excellent way to experience French hospitality
La varenne is so beautiful and peaceful. We were made extremely welcome, and felt at home immediately. The house and surroundings are idealic. Madame joelle made us extremely welcome and made sure we had everything we needed. The breakfast was delicious, made with fresh local ingredients, including eggs laid in the grounds and home grown walnuts. We could not fault anything, even the weather! Definitely return when next in the area.

A haven of luxury, tranquility and hosting par excellence
What a wonderful home - Joelle and Gerard have a real gift in creating a very memorable stay. My husband said 'it was worth the drive' and now he wants me to find a big house to recreate the magic in the UK. Maybe that is just a dream, but they certainly managed to make us both fall in love with this place. The gentle piano music playing in the background at breakfast was one of those details you don't appreciate until you have it. A real wow. We wish we could have stayed longer.

Welcoming and relaxing
The owners were extremely helpful and welcoming, the B&B and pool lovely and we had a very enjoyable (and easy) cycle into Richelieu the local town. Wish we'd stayed longer. Would recommend to all.
