about our B&B in Saillans
on the banks of the Drôme

Nick - London - august 2017
Spell-binding view from an exceptionally nice terrace -- the BnB overlooks the river -- which may prompt you to stay in rather than head to the restaurant. Very warm and charming hosts. River-swimming a joy: bring your crocs. A pleasure. Would recommend to anyone.

Penelope - Leicester - may 2017
This is a special place in a special location. A warm welcome from Frederic and Salome, delicious dinner and a superb view from our room of the river Drome. One of the highlights was a beaver swimming upriver in the evening, laid on by Frederic at 1855 just before dinner! Definitely a "tick and return".

Helena - Oxford - August 2016
This is really a wonderful place. The setting and views alone are enough to make this place stand out but when you add in the quality of the facilities, comfort and cuisine, you have something very special. Salome and Frederic are wonderful hosts and made sure the whole family enjoyed themselves. We very much look forward to our next visit.

Andrew - Dorking - July 2016
Frederic and Salome have created a wonderful place in this old Silk Mill. We had a warm welcome and were told the history of the place. Our room was large and comfortable with a fantastic view but the real treat is their terrace where we had dinner and breakfast all beautifully presented at a long table. Frederic and Salome are lovely, interesting hosts and took care to make sure everyone was OK. This a real 'Grand Design'. Our only regret was that we were only staying one night - we will definitely be including a longer stay on our next trip to France.

Patricia - Monmouth - June 2016
It is worth a diversion just to meet Salome & Frederic, they are such a lovely friendly, slightly bohemian couple. The rooms are a delight, cool and spacious with Salome's decorative take on Picasso, Matisse etc. Eating together on their beautiful terrace overlooking the river and mountains is bliss. This was our second visit, we must stay longer next time.

Robert - Stroud - June 2016
Rest assured this is an exceptional place to stay both location ally high above the flowing Drome which gently sent us to sleep, and because of the service of our hosts Morin and Salome who not only provided wonderful cuisine but amazing help with itinerary maps to match our specific interests of walking for flora and butterflies on quiet byways and paths. We stayed for two nights but next time will definitely make it longer.

Rod - Manchester - May 2016
Another excellent Sawday B&B - lived up to the writeup in every way, and more! With German, English and French around the dinner table, we had a lively and interesting time with Frederic as M C ( and piano player ) and Salome producing an excellent repas of local specialities Merci bien

Anthony - Bangor - north wales - September 2015 A stay at Saillans with Frédéric and Salomé provides an architectural and artistic delight in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The excellent dinner prepared by Salomé and shared with the hosts and their other guests was great fun and the food delicious. Breakfast was always an enjoyable occasion and Frédéric would take great pains afterwards to help us plan our day. We stayed for 4 days and loved the relaxed and convivial atmosphere.

Pippa - West Wittering - August 2015
We stayed here for 2 nights with 2 teenagers. We all loved the converted mill with its spectacular views and artistic conversion. The hosts are delightful and we really felt we were welcome guests. Delicious food and Frederic was a brilliant guide to the area. A pleasure to stay with a couple who clearly love their property and the local area so much.

The description says it all. This is a special place, beautifully situated, with fantastic views and welcoming hosts. Fun to share breakfast and an evening meal with hosts, Frederic and Salome, and other guests.

Michael Jul 2015
The sense of care, love, attention and vision are abundant. We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. The space is full of artistic and architectural flair and humour. The hosts were kind, helpful and warm. It was a short 5min walk from the town centre. Excellent- we will be going back.

Sheila Jul 2015
a beautiful house in a stunning location overlooking the river with mountain crags towering above, full of exquisite art works by the hosts Frederic and Salome who made us very welcome. Dinner and breakfast were both delicious.

Robert Jun 2015
To comvert an old factory overlooking the river Drome and turn it into a home with delightful terraces requires imagination and the two artist owners have that. It is a home open to visitors and a very special place to stay. We had all we needed for comfort and the attention of the hosts. A shame that we could not stay longer en route for Provence.

Danielle + Evi (NL) : 28th of June to 5th of July, 2015
Nowhere else we would have loved to spend our time than in this beautiful surroundings in this great B+B. We had the Picasso room overlooking the river and with a view on the mountains.
We would recommend anyone who would want to visit the Drôme to stay with Frédéric and Salomé in their beautiful B+B .

Pat & Peter (UK) : 19th to 20th of June, 2015
Heart-full, Thanks!
We have had an excellent stay in this colourful artistic house where the welcome and the food/hospitality has been the best.

Sabine & Uwe (D) : 19th to 20th of June, 2015
We love that place, it was a warm welcome & very good dinner!
We will be back some day and tell friends!

Michael & Robert (UK) : 5th to 6th of June, 2015
A very warm welcome. Beautiful interiors & furniture and great comfort. Very quiet & calm atmosphere. A most enjoyable meal on the terrace.
Unique and stimulating experience with a treasure-trove of artistic works to admire, in the most beautiful surroundings -of the terraces of the property- and the bigger landscape.

Margaret & Derrick + Peter (UK) : 31st of May to 3rd of June, 2015
Chambres d'hôtes Frédéric Morin et Salome is a special place that I will visit again. Frédéric and Salome are warm and welcoming and full of knowledge and interesting thoughts. They have created a unique and enchanting house using their artistic and architectural skills. It is like an oasis of colors surronded by the dramatic mountains and the clear river Drôme.
Their cooking is full of their character and creativity and is delicious. To eat breafast or dinner with them in their balcony garden is a wonderful experience.
Thank You!

Fiona & John (UK) : 7th to 9th of May, 2015
It was everything we could have wished for:
Our host were delightful, very well appointed rooms - wonderful decor, we could have looked out of the windows all day, wonderful French breakfast -outstanding preserves- and meals not to be missed.
There are some place you never forget - our hosts, the rooms, the ambience as nothing was to much trouble. The meals were delicious and we looked forward to dinner each night. The views from the rooms are stunning and the surrounding countryside is not to be missed.
We would highly recommend this place.

The location is outstanding on the bank of the Drome, the views are stunning, the rooms all works of art and the meals simply delicious.

Encore mieux qu'on s'y attendait. Tout était parfait : l'apéritif, le dîner avec caille, fromages bien affinés, pâté avec salade, clafoutis, vin, verveine et conversations très animées.
Nous espérons bien pouvoir revenir et rester plus longtemps. Merci infiniment et bonne chance.

We have enjoyed our visit to this unique and enchanting converted silk mill with its amazing views over the Drome and mountains. Salome and Frederick were attentive hosts and terrific cooks, preparing a delicious dinner. The property is decorated in an amazing style by the hosts who are both artists.
We are also returning here on our way back to England.

This is the most amazing chambre d'hotes.
From enterig into the property you can feel the amazing atmosphere that Frederic & Salome have achieved. The sheer task of renovating the property is inspiring, and its originality is second to none - not to mention the views.
A truly magnificient place and home.

Susan & Olivier (Australia) : 5th to 6th of june, 2014
This is a lovely period, establishment that has been refurnished with modern comforts. The decorations + ambience of the building are lovely, with paintings gracing every room and walk. There is also a beautiful glass worshop containging the original work of Frederic and Salome, the proprietors.
The landscape surronding the building is spectacular, with dramatic mountain faces presenting a beautiful view from each window. There is also a beatiful view to the river that runs at the bottom of the cliff below the building.
Highly recommendent for a restful holiday in a magnificent environment.
