A handsome brick house built in 1712 for the Visitandine nuns in this pious (at the time) area. You have the run of two separate sitting rooms and two dining rooms so plenty of space to spread out, and if you want complete quiet then the suites also have places to sit, read or work. Help yourselves to delicious breakfasts served buffet style from the kitchen: homemade jams, local honey, home-baked pastries, scones and cakes (Eric is a pastry chef) along with local cheeses, eggs and fresh fruit.
It’s worth booking in for dinner (up to three times a week) where Eric is inspired to cook what he finds in the market that morning and serves with good beers and wines. Bedrooms, all upstairs, are named after roses and are very different in style, but all have fine linen sheets and lovely views; bathrooms are en suite.
Wander the pretty garden, chat to the happy hens, cool off in the large, landscaped pool or stroll into town.
