Outside a perfect bastide village, here is château B&B run with warmth and energy. Stéphane cooks brilliantly and loves wine; Florence is enormous fun, a breath of fresh air. Restful, light-filled, traditional bedrooms have white bathrooms. An infinity pool overlooks the lake below, above it perches the rustic-modern treehouse, its balcony gazing over meadows and cows, its mother tree thrusting two branches through the floor. Solar-lit paths lead you down through the trees at night, a breakfast basket is winched up in the morning. Later… play badminton, fish in the lake, spin off on a bike, bask in the hot tub.
