After having bypassed the Saint Martin church (Flamboyant Gothic portal from the 15th century) you will take a stony path nicely surrounded by a green tunnel which will lead you to the Manoir de la Croix de Saint Louis where your hosts will have the joy of welcoming you.
Our guest house built in 1830 on the site of a former convent (Couvent de la Croix Saint Louis) bears the story of a family of the French bourgeoisie which since the reign of Charles X participates in the influence of local life. Writers, artists and politicians have often stayed in this place steeped in history.

Time stands still at the Manoir de la Croix Saint Louis. Everything is quiet, simplicity and refinement. The idyllic place to recharge your batteries for a weekend.

20 km from the A6, the Manoir de la Croix Saint Louis is a stopover not to be missed. I spent two nights in the "Ralf Master Suite" and it will remain one of my fondest memories in bed and breakfast. Bravo for this luxury suite worthy of a palace.

French good taste breathes in all the rooms of this splendid house. The present objects of French invoice are a permanent delight for the eyes. For sure, aesthetes will love this place ... Breakfast is royal and what about the table d'hôte: a real treat!
I loved the music room where I played for hours on the Érard ¼ grand piano. The fireplace crackled, the large chandelier with pendants sparkled, a porcelain cup resting on the marble table gave off a delicate aroma of Christmas tea; I was happy to live this simple, high and saving moment for my spirit.
