Kerry’s generous breakfast in the sunny conservatory will set you up for the day – there’s yogurt, muesli, cheese, fruit and pastries. Explore the 23 hectares, walk the pilgrim’s path, roam through ancient châteaux or simply laze the day away by the freshwater pool.
Stroll 5 minutes into the village for an apéritif at the bar in La Perche followed by dinner in the garden if it’s sunny – 3 courses made with Kerry’s homegrown herbs and veg and her delicious cheesecake. Walk 20 minutes to L’Etoile d’Urçay if you fancy dining out.
Head to the Forest of Tronçais (a 10-minute drive) for some of the purest air in Europe and 10,000 hectares of woodland. Come evening, curl-up in Igny’s cosy beds with windows wide open to be serenaded by a chorus of owls and frogs.
