Looking for a B & B in San Luis Obispo, California? Look no further than Petit Soleil.
It is billed as a "touch of European charm in the heart of San Luis Obispo" and they are right.
Located at 1473 Monterey Street, it is close enough to downtown restaurants and shops. Looking a little like an old motel that's been redone, we first wondered about it. Stepping through the courtyard, its charm extended from the front door all the way to the rooms.
The front desk staff and cooks greeted us upon arrival with fresh baked cookies. You would have thought we were old friends as easily as we were welcomed.
An eclectic back court yard seems to work for them. Sit and enjoy the waterfalls, watch birds, or just read the paper with a cup of coffee or glass of wine. Priced as most B & B's it's more than your everyday hotel. Customer service, wine and hors d'oeuvres, cooked made-to-order breakfast, fresh pastries and comfortable quiet rooms make it worth the little extra.
We'll be back.
