A charming, comfortable and inspirational oasis

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we arrived at Bishop's Rest, it was everything and more than we expected. Patrick had waited to welcome us and show us around our accommodation which was very comfortable, clean and well presented with bags of character and style. The extensive gardens run down to and alongside a river which is not only visually stunning but simply a beautiful place to sit and read and relax. A dip in the river was sufficiently reviving to enable us to dance in the evening at an excellent local music event. Patrick recommended we ate at the Buffet de la Gare in Porrentruy which we did and the food was very good indeed. We would definitely recommend Bishop's Rest to family and friends. Actually, the whole property could be reserved for friendly gatherings. The train stops at Courchavon which is only a short walk away. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

Wonderful, relaxing holiday in the lovely Ajoie

  • 5 of 5
We spent a very enjoyable 10 days at Bishop's Rest at the end of July. Patrick is a charming, helpful and considerate host. The ground floor apartment is clean, well-furnished and equipped with everything required for a comfortable stay.

It is an ideal location for walkers with a network of well signposted walking trails starting 50 metres from the house. The proximity of a train station with a regular hourly service allows easy access to many destinations in north west Switzerland. Ideal for those wishing to leave the car at "home".

Bishop's Rest is a great place to relax and "recharge the batteries" and a place where Monty(the black and white Springer Spaniel) and I hope to return in the near future.

A great -stay!

  • 4 of 5
Wir fühlten uns superwohl in Bishop's Rest. Die Wohnung ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und hat alles, was einem die Ferien geniessen lässt. Die Umgebung ist wunderbar. Wir genossen die vielen Sitzplätze am Fluss, am Haus, unter dem Felsen. Besonders gefallen hat uns das Baden im kleinen Flüsschen Allaine, die Nähe zu Frankreich, die Möglichkeiten für Bike-Touren und Wandern. Patrick ist ein sehr liebevoller Gastgeber. Also: Jederzeit wieder!

Lovely weekend

  • 5 of 5
I can wholeheartedly confirm all of the good things that have already been said about Bishop's Rest. My husband, our son, and I occupied the two charming rooms on the ground floor for the weekend. Having the extensive, well-maintained grounds surrounding the lodging made the stay particularly relaxing and comfortable. Patrick was a gracious host, providing an easy and informative check-in, a delicious breakfast each morning, and lots of interesting conversation. From Bishop's Rest, we were able to explore the towns of Porrentruy, St. Ursanne, and Delemont as well as take the 15 KM hike from Soubey to St. Ursanne along the Doubs River. If we are ever in the area again, I certainly would try to stay at Bishop's Rest on the Allaine River.

Wonderful property and owner

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with my 3 children for a week while relaxing and exploring a bit of Switzerland. Because the weather turned out to be cold and rainy, we had to stay in more than we had planned and found the apartment to be a wonderful refuge. Plenty of room for 4 with 2 bedrooms, a kitchen and living room. The kitchen was well-equipped and my kids loved the great wifi.

Patrick was a great host - so accommodating. The gardens are beautiful - it's too bad the weather was so bad that we didn't get enough time to enjoy them.

The apartment was very clean and the description completely accurate.
