Have you ever considered staying at a bed and breakfast? It's a great option when you're venturing out into the French countryside for several reasons that I go over in this video. I'm sharing a little bit about the bed and breakfast experience and introducing you to a local British couple who owns a bed and breakfast in my area. It's called the Manoir de Jouralem outside of Angers, France.


Thanks so much to Mel and Hywel for letting me film at their property and taking the time to talk to me.

I did NOT receive discounted or free accommodations in exchange for this video.
