Browsing through the guest book at this wonderful chambres d’hôte reveals comments such as, ‘We liked it here so much that we have now bought a house in the village’. You will appreciate the lovely fortified village of Flavigny-sur-Ozerain, the setting for the film Chocolat, all the more after a night in one of the hotel’s cosy bedrooms, with their oak beams, pale walls, flowing fabrics, well-restored antiques and private home feel (no telephones or televisions). Since the last edition L’Ange has come under new management, and the rooms are showing some changes. One room, La chambre Buffon, now has contrasting lime and dark purple walls – a contemporary look, but not unwelcome.
   Dinner (27€, without drinks, as we went to press) is now provided – much of what is served is homemade, or pulled up from the garden, but this is served on request. There is also a good restaurant in the village very close by. Summer sees open-air cinema and various processions and festivals. Both B&B and village certainly make it worth a stay of more than one night.
   We would welcome more reports.
