If you like the idea of idling with an evening drink by the slow green water before an exceptionally good dinner, this is the place for you. Your hosts Valérie and Thierry have run their auberge for over two decades, so you’re in very capable hands.
Bedrooms are fresh, clean and simply decorated; choose from courtyard or river views. The star of the show is the restaurant, with tables spilling out onto the rose-covered terrace with sweet-smelling climbers. Popular with guests and locals, the restaurant serves a creative, seasonal and monthly-changing menu with plenty of vegetarian options.
Plan your day over a breakfast of homemade pastries and freshly squeezed juices. Head out on walks along the river; drive 15 minutes to the lovely town of La Flèche for shopping and cafes. Francophiles will love it here – it’s quiet, authentic and superb value, all within easy reach of several châteaux too.
