This is a real farm, so don’t expect pretty-pretty – but Madame is a character and her welcome is top class. Guests return, for the authentic atmosphere and the delicious food. Amazing how much space lies behind the simple frontage of this street-side farmhouse; every little corner is crammed with 40 years’ worth of collecting: porcelain, plates, jugs, crystal decanter stoppers, baskets, collectable plastics… the list is long. Come for comfy beds, spacious dayroom areas, billiards, table football (a vintage table) and games. It’s intrinsically French despite the eccentricities, and Madame is a delight.
