Cyclists who stayed at Maison Saint Jacques have recommended it to us. It's run by an English couple called Dorit and Trevor, and they have lived in the area for quite some time and know it well. We're told they are both friendly and knowledgable and that the place itself of full of character and charm. (And that breakfast includes fresh, homemade treats). It's a 14th century townhouse in the old timber style, and has its own courtyard and small garden. It's set in the centre of Parthenay, so close to local restaurants and shops for restocking panniers. There is a B&B room plus a self-catering apartment. It also carries accueil velo status so has all the bikey bases covered. French and English spoken.
