Sheep graze behind this old bergerie in the grounds of your hosts’ manor house. Cook al fresco in a rustic, open kitchen on the covered terrace; breakfast (you can order a hamper to be delivered) or dinner here overlooking the beautiful garden with its huge linden trees is a very special treat.The suite is light, lofty and beamed; the little Bergère will bring you close to nature – leave the top part of the stable door open and watch the stars come out one by one. On chilly days light the wood-burning stove and plan your next adventures.Stroll through the garden and orchard to find bee hives, chicken and sheep. Hike through gentle, rolling countryside with munching cows and donkeys. Hop in the car for farmers’ markets, superb old churches and a magnificent beach at Trouville.
