  • Intriguing place. Worth a detour for 10 minutes. Tonnerre town sadly was quite dirty with dog faeces left on many pavements. A faded beauty.

  • Interesting to see this spring that flows constantly with fresh water from subterranean sources. We were rather disappointed with the city itself, almost empty of restaurants, coffee shops or...

  • Tonnerre is trying to rebuild itself. The Fosse Dionne is part of a lovely stroll to uncover little gems of this town.

  • It is well worth looking at if you're passing through the area but don't visit for the rest of the town,appeared very run down
  • We were surprised to find that this old farmhouse is in a town surrounded by houses. Whilst the publicity says there is free parking it is not stated that this is in a public parking space. The glass door on the street has a piece of paper stuck to it instructing people to go to the side- we finally realised that the entry is through a gate. This was in no way what we expected and we did not feel it was safe leave a loaded car in an area strewn with rubbish. I saw the room allocated to us which was clean and well appointed, however the environment was so unlike the description that we decided we could not stay. The place has changed hands and it could be that it will improve but we felt foolish to have been guided by the reviews.
  • very welcoming hosts, nice property and large rooms, place was well equipped and clean, had a great experience, thank you.
  • Had a great one night stay, room was generous and warm, well appointed with ensuite bathroom. Hosts were lovely and patient (as my partner and I both speak English). Great location next to the spring.
  • Amazing hosts. Amazing little place. Very warm and welcoming atmosphere. I can't even begin to describe how lovely, generous and heartwarming the owners of this place are. Recommend to ALL if you're visiting Tonnerre. I would come back to this place again and again!
