Kind and enthusiastic Parisians, Caroline and Jean-Robert, have done a grand job restoring this characterful 15th-century farm. The timbered stone and brick walls of the farmhouse peep out from a terracotta-tiled roof topped by a rare minaret-shaped Saracen chimney. Two comfortable beamed bedrooms, each with their own stylish modern bathroom, are prettily furnished with brocante bits and bobs. Breakfast in the stately hall or outside where tumbling rose bushes surround the fish-filled pond. There’s a gentle Yorkie in residence and it’s very dog friendly here. Foodies will head for gastronomic bliss in La Bresse.
