It’s peaceful here, deep in the countryside beside the 17th-century château, built by le Seigneur de Faudoas and with sweeping views over fields and the snow-capped mountains. Sitting on the terrace for a morning cup of tea or a sundowner will be uplifting. A well thought-out kitchen, large and light, is a grand space for all to sit and chat or help with the cooking and you’ll find basics in the cupboards plus a welcome hamper of local food and wine.
Bedrooms (one downstairs with its own shower room and doors to the terrace) are calm and uncluttered; bathrooms have mood lighting, tiptop showers and underheated cosy stone floors. Up the chunky oak staircase is a huge L-shaped living area with warm brickwork, exposed A-beams and plenty of windows for that view. Outside you’ll find a small lawned area and you have the use of the owners’ swimming pool.
Spend lazy days indoors, head off for long walks, relish the tranquillity.
