Chatty Madame is a superb cook, and her pretty house and garden in a quiet Yvelines village are equally delicious. Zip to Paris by train

Let the willows weep over the village pond; you go through the high gate into a sheltered paradise. The prettiest rooms have masses of old pieces, dolls, books, pictures to intrigue you, a chirruping garden with two rescue dogs to play with and the most caring hostess to provide an exceptional brunch. Have dinner too if you can (Catherine teaches cookery and sources locally: it's delicious). The miniature garden house is a lovers' dream: tiny salon downstairs, bedroom sporting superb bath up. Fulsome towels, extras of all sorts: charming, chatty Catherine thinks of everything.

"The welcome we received immediately dispelled the gloom bought on by rain on the first day of our holiday. This was supposed to be a sun-drenched escape from a rain-filled UK 'summer'. Our host, another guest (who stays regularly - and why wouldn't you?), my husband and I shared a magical evening of lovely food and drink, jolly conversation that mixed our dreadful French and their great English, and so much laughter. Such generosity. Thank you."

"What an outstanding place. One of the best we've ever stayed at - really comfortable room with everything you can think of provided and great walk in shower. Outstanding quality dinner (and huge - don't eat anything else beforehand!) and delicious breakfast. Peaceful garden. Lovely setting. Utterly delightful host. A real find. We'll be back. "

"We cannot rate this place highly enough. We stayed here for 6 nights (in the Petit Maison) with our one-year old in summer 2011. Catherine is the most perfect host, she couldn't have been more welcoming. The food really was the best we'd ever had in France - truely worth writing home about. We took day trips to Versailles, Paris and Giverny with ease. L'Ombre Bleu is fascinating itself - full of Catherine's collectibles and charm. Highly recommended!"
