After our last visit in 2013, we return to La Paresse en douce to find nothing has changed – Thank Goodness!! Henk’s cooking remains legendary and Helen’s eye for design and detail is exceptional. Thank you both for yet another delightful stay in your lovely home.
November 2016, Lynn & David

Thank you very much for a perfect stay. We were really looking forward to staying at your B&B and it exceeded our expectations. You made us feel very welcome and the ‘table d’hote’was a highlight. Henk should open a restaurant or go on Masterchef.
August 2015, Gavin & Vanessa

Wir hatten drei schone Tage im La Paresse en Douce! Die Einrichtung, das Essen und die Freundlichkeit der Gastgeber haben die Erwartungen mehr als erfullt, die bei der Buchung geweckt wurden. Wir bedanken uns fur eine erholsame Zeit, die wir sehr genossen haben.
August 2014, Schulz family


Nous avons bien fait d’écouter les conseils du “Figaro” … toujours une bonne surprise! Belle restauration et la table du “chef” hollandais vaut le détour…
May 2013, Marie-Rose & Marc

On ne pouvait rêver mieux pour ce joli week-end de la St. Valentin. Un accueil chaleureux, un cadre mag- nifique et romantique, un repas parfait, créatif et délicieux au bord de la cheminée, une soirée d’hiver dans un bain nordique bien chaud sous les étoiles et une douce nuit dans un ancien pigeonnier.
Februari 2013, Violaine & Christophe

What a lovely place to stay. The hous is beautiful (I want to redecorate when we get home!). The meals were amazing (that just won’t happen at home) and the welcome was just wonderful.
June 2012, Brianey & Rick

We had a lovely stay. Warm friendly atmosphere, superb food, exceptional interior design. Highly recommended. August 2011 – Ann & Mark


Die Tage hier in La Paresse en Douce – diesem besonderen Ort mit besonderen Menschen (!) wird uns ganz bestimmt immer in besten Erinnerung bleiben und wir freuen uns schon heute auf ein wiedersehen…
August 2011 – Petra & Georg

The rooms, the house, the food, your company, the other guests, the garden, the garage, the area, PERFECT!
August 2011 – Sue & Paul

Thank you for a wonderful stay at your lovely B&B! As you already know, we have thoroughly enjoyed your food as well as the good company at your table.
July 2011 – Tanya, Allan, Sebastian & Aleksander

Thank you for the opportunity to stay in ancient architecture beautifully restored and furnished. And for the special treatment for a non-cheese-eating freak! Your company and that of the other guests really added to the experience.
June 2011 – Sally-Anne & Hal


This is our second visit to Helen and Henk and it has been as enjoyable as the first. We particularly enjoy the meals around the big table with the other guests. Although La Paresse en Douce is a little bit out of our way (en route to spain), the extra miles are well worth it.
June 2011 – Lynn & David

Thank you for a wonderful stay in your beautiful house. You have been so welcoming that we feel we are friends who have known you for a long time! It is very peaceful here, that we already feel very relaxed – although it is only the start of our holiday! Henk – your cooking is delicious and very creative…. Look forward to the book! It was all so verrukkelijk!
May 2011 – Fiona & Roger

Une très belle maison, les repas sont incredibles (pardon le français…) et l’hospitalité était magnifique. C’était parfait ! Thank you !
May 2011 – Tindal family

You have created a most magical place here at La


Paresse en Douce. Your home is one of welcome and warmth.
November 2010 – Antoinette & Ken

We have stayed in many B&B’s over the years and this is first rate! Very impressed with your renovation – the beams and rough materials are charming. The meals and accommodation were wonderful.
September 2010 – Joycelyn, David & John

Wir haben das gute, lekkere Essen, die schöne Atmosphäre des Hauses, die Ruhe und der schönen Sternenhimmel genossen!
September 2010 – Annette & Matthias

We’ll be back, that’s for sure!
August 2010 – Wietske & Rob

This is our second stay at Helen & Henk’s B&B. We can still only recommend the B&B to everybody. They have managed to keep the high standards that they have set out for their B&B. When we planned our summer holiday 2010 there were simply no


routes that didn’t pass Helen & Henk’s cozy little B&B.
July 2010 – Agnes, Lisbeth and Peter

We have just had 3 wonderful nights with Henk & Helen. What a lovely oasis of calm and tranquility. Thank you both for your lovely welcome, your relaxed style helps your guests relax and forget the stress of everyday life.
June 2010 – Ruth & Ian

What a lucky find! Our nights ‘surfing’ the net paid off – a peaceful and delightful place to stay. A warm welcome followed by a relaxing evening sharing a splendid dinner with family and friends. We will definitely be back!
May 2010 – Lynn & David

You have created the perfect blend of homeliness + luxury, and we’ve had such a relaxing time here. The food was superb. We’ll certainly suggest La Paresse en Douce to all our friends. Sept 2009, Sam & Julia


A perfect oasis of calm! There is a wonderful warmth and sincerity to the relaxed hospitality that flows from Helen and Henk. This stay has been a highlight of our tour of France.
September 2009, Mark & Sue

Second time around, even better than the first time!
August 2009, Allert & Monique

Thank you for a wonderful evening meal, your hospitality and lovely home. One night is not enough! So we will return to explore the area sometime soon…
August 2009, Rob & Jacqui

A haven of peace and tranquility where you feel automatically at ease as soon as you pass the threshold.
August 2009, Bruno, Amy, Lili & Lucie

Unbelievable what Helen & Henk have created here. We have found God in France!Aug’09, Carina,Patrick,Persephone,José


We (a little Danish family) have really enjoyed a couple of days at your B&B. We have especially noticed the way that you keep everything in a nice, needy, clean and puritan way.
July 2009, Agnes, Lisbeth and Peter
