We arrived to a most wonderful welcome and were offered a much needed drink, they could not have been more welcoming, making us feel instantly at home. La Jolie Maison combines the charm and elegance of a lovely French house with the touches of home comfort such as tea and coffee making facilities in the bedrooms, which we have never found before in France, and which we appreciated so much. We also enjoyed sitting in the garden in the evening, sharing an aperitif with our hosts, talking about the day’s activities and planning the next.
We found many things of interest in the area , but if our interests had been different, Lin and John were ready with other suggestions. When the time came to leave, it was a real wrench. Our consolation is that John and Lin have so much talent and enthusiasm for what they are doing, La Jolie Maison will be even better when we get our next chance to visit.

Loved everything about it!! The Room, the Food was absolutely delicious (all credit to Lin’s cooking!) and most of all the wonderful welcome, we felt very much at home,the best B&B ever!
We wish Lin & John every success, they thoroughly deserve it and we will recommend them wholeheartedly to anyone traveling this way!

Having met Lin & John by pure chance in Fontenay, this was by far the best & most subtle ‘pick up’ we’ve experienced! We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay & their company, which we hope may be the basis for a longer friendship.
We wish them all the best for the future & hope to be back soon!
