The Experience

Breakfast is a feast of fresh bread, croissants, yogurt, jams, cheeses and hot drinks, all served on lovely crockery at the big guests dining table in the Annexe outbuilding. A covered terrace is perfect for eating outdoors on sunny days. You can also have dinner cooked for you three days a week or a plateau-repas at the Atelier, which has its own living area.

In a pretty outbuilding, the double has an old tiled floor and Provençal quilt, and looks onto the garden from the ground floor; the suite’s twin has the same tiles underfoot, beams overhead and high wooden beds with an inviting mix of white covers and red quilts. Views from all the bedrooms are over nothing but greenery and you’ll feel very peaceful.

You’re just outside the quiet village of Ivoy-le-Pré, remote and with lovely views, lots of forests on the doorstep and by a small lake. There are many hiking and cycling trails from the door and a shelter for bikes on site.

We had such a lovely time at La Verrerie. The setting is wonderful, near a lake, surrounded by countryside and woods. We stayed in the Annexe with our baby, and everything was made easy for us by our kind and friendly host Marie. We loved the old tiled floors and the character of the place, and it was great to have use of the salon, perfect for our little one to play in. Very special.

We spent a wonderful 6 days at La Verrerie with our two children age 8 and 13. The Atelier is the most beautiful little house we have stayed in, decorated wonderfully by Madame and spotlessly clean. La Verrerie itself is absolutely gorgeous, with countryside and forests everywhere, lovely walks right from the house and a little lake opposite. It is blissfully calm and peaceful. The swimming pool was the children's highlight - right outside the Atelier, it was heated at over 26 degrees and a perfect size. We cannot recommend La Verrerie enough. Anyone would be lucky to stay there.

What a delight and the most delicious dinner - beautiful setting in the depths of the country - very many thanks.

What a lovely stay at La Verrerie. We were driving up from the South so chose to self cater as we weren't sure of guaranteeing our arrival time. In fact we were over an hour late due to torrential storms but Madame was unfazed & charming. A well equipped kitchen meant we could still prepare supper & eat in style in the very attractive dining room. Bedrooms & bathrooms were all immaculate & extremely comfortable. After a much needed night's sleep we were greeted by a marvellous breakfast, which included homemade confitures & a simply sublime apricot & almond tart. A return visit is a must.


Delightful welcome; fabulous dinner on the lawn overlooking the trout lake complete with resident kingfisher. Room was beautifully clean and comfortable. Just what we needed after a day exploring the countryside and old towns.

The Saporta family manage the forests, farm and hunt, and although they don't speak much English, they enjoy doing B&B and are charming and thoroughly hospitable. Their son Guillaume speaks better English however, and also helps run the B&B and estate.
