The light-filled rooms, generous breakfasts and a most courteous owner are all of a lovely piece: quiet, clothed in gentle earthy colours, natural materials and discreet manners. You will feel instantly at ease in this cultured atmosphere. The attic room has a super-comfy bed, beautiful terracota tiles and a darling little writing desk beneath the sloping beams; the beautiful bathroom has everything. Two family rooms for four and the studio (for three) have kitchenettes and sparkling shower rooms. Walk round ‘the village’, discover its quirky shops, its restaurants for all tastes and budgets – then head for the riches of central Paris.
