We stayed here three months this summer as we had work to do in a nearby town. This was the perfect retreat after a long, hard day. Surrounded by trees and green pastures, horses and cows, the tranquility was just what we needed.
Located about 15 minutes from the nearest city, it is also just a short walk to the closest village, where there is a bakery and a few other small businesses. The house is actually attached to a larger one, where the owners live. However, because of the layout and gates, it is very private, and there are no overlapping noises from one to the other. The photos shown in the listing are accurate but hardly do it justice--it's furnished with antiques and high quality appliances that truly make for luxurious living.
The owners couldn't have been nicer. Helene frequently brought over produce from her garden or fresh eggs from their hens. They were available if we needed them but respected our privacy. Although they didn't speak much English, their son Alexandre was our main contact to pass important information on to his parents or to ask questions. Even though he doesn't live at the property, he was quick to respond to our emails with a message back from his parents.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and can't say enough good things about the property or the owners. I highly recommend it.
