A super-stylish makeover by the de Gamas who moved here from Paris with their young children. All is pale and lovely, clear and uncluttered – designed to enhance the elegant proportions of this handsome Chartreuse house. You eat – superbly and seasonally – in the main house. You sleep in beautifully compact rooms in the converted barns. Each has it’s own entrance and is on two levels with beds upstairs. Bathrooms are sleek, with walk-in showers; one a spa bath. Roam the grounds; there’s a wow of a pool, swings and table tennis; stroll through the vines; book beauty treatments, or baby-sitting, and head for Bordeaux. Smart.
