My wife and I spent three wonderful days in the country at Les Fermes du Chateau. We were made to feel as part of the family while being treated as premier guests. Breakfasts were typically French but were very plentiful. We ordered Table d'hote on two evenings and had wonderful meals and conversations with the owners. They accepted our limited French but both spoke perfect English. That should be an excellent benefit to language limited travelers. There is plenty to see and do near Les Fermes but each day you return to a quiet peaceful farming community.
Agnes and Francois are very friendly and helpful. Their home is delightful and comfortable in a beautiful country setting. We have no hesitation in recommending Les Fermes du Chateau.
This is a gem of a B & B in a quiet hamlet. It has recently been tastefully renovated and is immaculate. The gardens are lovely and well kept. Agnes is a delightfully personable woman who chatted with us and made us feel right at home. She went over and above our expectations with all the information and help she provided. We didn't dine at the B & B but given the service we received, I'm sure it would be a great experience. I heartily recommend this charming B & B for a pleasurable stay.

We were amazed at the warm and friendly amosphere at this place, and very much enjoyed the hospitality of our hosts, Agnes and Francois. We would come again in a heartbeat. The home, including the bedroom and the bathroom were done very well and made us feel comfortable and relaxed. The food was the best, and all homemade with care. Thank you both, for a very enjoyable stay!
A comfortable place to be within a restored stone walled barn with excellent accommodation, firm bed with care taken as to the decoration of the room. Outstanding view. Cosy well kept garden with several places to sit. Delicious homemade jam with excellent croissant, not like the heavy doughy ones you can buy elsewhere in France. Forthcoming hostess. Because of the quality of the B&B we returned for another night at the end of our vacation. I recommend this B&B on all counts but hesitate to do so because then it might be full when I want to return!
Apart from the delightful surroundings and home itself, what makes this stay extra special is the friendliness and inclusiveness of the innkeepers, Agnès amd François. This is a family home and, whereas there is appropriate private space, you are made to feel part of the household during your stay. The lack of a separate entrance to your quarters could be seen as a disadvantage, but it is fun to come 'home' and walk through the large kitchen and dining room to your own space and, in our experience, Agnès is often found cooking something delicious for the family ... or for guests if they wish to arrange dinner. Opening the shutters in the morning reveals a beautiful garden and potager. In short, a lovely experience of French life with most gracious of hosts.
We booked on the net and really did not know what to expect. Agnes and Francois were the most wonderful hosts - we are still talking about Agnes' nettle soup. We only had an overnight stay We booked an overnight stay at La Desirade on the net, and really did not know what to expect. Agnes & Francois, our hosts, made us feel very welcome. We are still talking about Agnes' menu for dinner that night - simply superb. Forgot to get the recipe for the nettle soup. Susan & John - Sydney, Australia
