Seriously the best B&B we have ever stayed at - Jill and Jonathan have thought of everything for the comfort of their guests. The guest lounge with unlimited tea, coffee and drinks is beautiful, and their hospitality is unparalleled.

Again we stayed here for the fourth time and the standards are consistently excellent. The pool was a haven in the heat of the day, with a quiet garden to relax in, there are great walks by the river and canal five minutes away and the river is good to swim in. We had two outstanding meals cooked by Jonathan... More

We had a wonderful stay with Jill and Jonathan. Their family room (actually to adjoining rooms) is spacious, beds are large and comfortable. The common area as the pool are perfect for spending a lazy day with the kids. Breakfast was very good, hosts are welcoming ...

We're glad you liked the family room/suite and that it worked well for you. We find that it is a very popular room during the summer. We do enjoy having families staying, exploring the area, splashing in the pool and dipping into the toy box! We hope that we will see you the next time that you come this way. More

Having stayed at a wide variety of Chambres d'Hotes in France our experience has generally been good, but L'Olivier is genuinely outstanding. It is run by a well-travelled English couple, Jill and Jonathan, who bring their own enthusiasm for the area and a commitment to providing the experience that they would seek for themselves. As a result their beautiful old... More
