Say goodbye to the rest of the world – you’re delightfully isolated here and it feels wonderful. Step inside to find high ceilings, exposed beams and creaky floors, and settle in with the hamper of cheese, wine and brioche.
With so many communal spaces, sharing a meal and chatting over morning coffee is easy. Take a dip in the pool before relaxing in outdoor nooks with your favourite read; fire up the BBQ in the secluded rear courtyard; challenge your dearest to a round of boules and ping-pong.
Head to Magnac Laval (10km) for the weekly market, restaurants and cafés; for more adventurous days drive 30 minutes to the sandy beaches of Lac St. Pardoux for water-skiing, canoeing, fishing and roaming the woodland. Work up an appetite before heading home for your alfresco dinner under the setting sun.
