About the Host, Ruth
I am conscientious and dedicated to making a stay at our B&B a memorable moment to enjoy.
We love France and food - these two things go naturally together! I hope my love of food comes through in my breakfasts, my homemade bread, and cookies made for the hospitality trays.
My principle is to host others as I would like to be hosted myself.
