Caroline and Robert made us very welcome. The property is so beautiful and quiet, away from suburban noise, but close enough to get to sporting facilities etc easily. We loved retreating there after busy, noisy days. I appreciated the guest lounge/kitchen area and being able to prepare packed lunches for my kids or play board games. The abundant bird life was beautiful. Finally, having French breakfasts complete with homemade jams and sauces was divine. Thank you for a lovely stay.

The property was just so great for relaxing. Many diverse areas in and around the house and property to sit and chill or common areas to meet new people. Bed was so comfortable. Caroline and Robert are lovely hosts. Suggestion: send kids of to bed and pay the extra for the french (candlelight) dinner Robert prepares, don't forget to bring your own favourite bottle of wine. Robert a french chef loves to talk you through the meal preparation. Breakfasts are beautifully prepared and ample. We had no need to head out anywhere for the day, just relaxed around the pool, short walks and lounge around, perfect place to get away and chill. Thank you Caroline and Robert for a lovely weekend, we will be back.

The location and surroundings was beautiful and peaceful. You were still close to town, but felt like you were miles away. The owners provided great service. Having breakfast with the birds each morning was definitely a highlight.

This is the 3rd time i have stayed at the Riviera B and B. Robert and Caroline are the loveliest people you could meet. I'm always looked after as if i was part of the family!! The cleanliness and homliness of the property are 2nd to none. It is a breath of fresh air..the serene and tranquil setting of the property make it a wonderful place to relax or if you need to concentrate for work it is so quiet. From the chickens and ducks on the property to the wildlife you enjoy a lovely country feel while the shops are still close enough to access easily. My dog loves it too and is made as welcome as i am. This is my new home away from home..i've already booked to go back in December as i don't want to miss out!! Merci Caroline and Robert!!
