Such a peaceful, verdant setting. Sitting in the valley this unusual tower obviously didn’t serve any military purpose but deep window sills and thick walls mean it is gorgeously cool on hot days and warm in the winter. The living area has comfy seating, lots of books and games for rainy days and lovely views. In the kitchen you’ll find all the basics you need for cooking.
Spill onto lawns and terraces for al fresco meals, a game of boules or simply a snooze on a lounger in the shade. Wander through the orchard (yes do pick the fruit in season) and meadows full of wildflowers in spring and summer. Further are walks through forest or along footpaths to the village for shopping and restaurants. On Sundays you’ll hear the Benedictine monks from the monastery overlooking you sing mass.
Gather and cook local ingredients or ask Louise to prepare something for you – she makes a cracking Boeuf Bourguignon.
