The
Experience

Vincent and Élisabeth’s serene home lies plumb in the heart of George Sand country. Linger under lime trees in a secret courtyard garden while relishing a plentiful breakfast; enjoy a dinner of home-grown produce; get cosy in the family sitting room before an open fire. A staging post in the 12th century, La Croix Verte stands in the heart of the village but you won’t hear a peep as you slumber under a hand-stitched bedcover; the three charming loft bedrooms in natural tones share sofas, books and games. Come for heaps of character, unspoilt countryside, and artist hosts (potter and painter) who are an absolute delight.

Reviews

Just back from La Croix Verte (1 night and first time in a Sawday b&b); lovely old house, full of interesting things, set in a charming cottagey garden; good welcome; excellent beds and breakfast; only problem: your google map is incorrect (as is the owner's on their own site!) The house is situated on the main road - not two streets further on between château and church as you show it. Curiously, google indicates it correctly on other sites).

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Elizabeth and Vincent. They gave us a lovely welcome, the room was very comfortable and beautifully decorated. The supper was excellent as was the breakfast, everything homemade. Vincent was very helpful lending us a map to follow tracks for a lovely walk to the next village where we visited the home of the novelist George Sands. We plan to stay again at this delightful Band B on our return to the Uk

Rosie, Devon

We only stayed one night as it was a stop on the journey down to the South of France but wished we had managed a second as there is quite a lot to see in the area especially concerning the author Georges Sand. There was a lovely spread of home made jams and cakes as part of a delicious breakfast and the room was airy clean and very comfortable. The hosts were charming. We would stay again. The neighbouring countryside provided a relaxing evening stroll and an interesting morning walk serenaded by Nightingales.
