This elegant house has parts which date to the 16th century and is surrounded by a hectare of lovely parkland with a tree-lined avenue. It’s set in a residential area between the centre of a small village and the church, but you aren’t overlooked.
Dominique and Nicholas raised their five sons here so there’s a relaxed, family feel to the place. Your quirky suite has its own sitting room but you’re welcome to roam downstairs – play the piano, read, relax by the fire in the sitting room or play pool next door; gather for homemade breakfast and typical Lyonnaise dinner in the dining room – Dominique’s a fantastic cook.
Sit out in the garden or by the pool with a book, use the jacuzzi, sauna and gym; stroll into the village in ten minutes or drive to Lyon in half an hour. Ask about good places to eat – there are options within 3km including Paul Bocuse’s three Michelin-starred restaurant.
