Almost every room has a beautiful marble fireplace and original artwork as well as a toiletry/sink area (in historic homes the bathroom was not in the room itself in addition to the shower and clawfoot tub and toilets). The Owner and family mostly use the farm in the summer but it can come available even in summer months. This is a down to earth but chic space, NOT a hotel! There is NOT and never will be a Television! There is wifi and LOTS of books (for reading during your stay-please do not take home!). This is a perfect escape for friends and family with a big under the rafters 3 room "dormitory for singles, teens/children which in reality sleeps max. 8-10 just in this space with a separate bathroom. Experience France as it is meant to be! The good life is simple...we need to take the time to enjoy it!
Min 3 night stay. The house can actually sleep 20 in 9 bedrooms. Please be respectful of the goat farmer who lives next door and the farm was in his family who has lived in the region for generations. Please watch your children as this was once a working farm thus still a lot of farm tools etc around. The river though very safe for swimming is deep in places so watch your children at all times.
