Come to meet Marie and Guillaume in their beautiful home in a wine-country village. Oriental rugs and fine antiques rub shoulders with contemporary art, and gorgeous books lie around for everyone to peruse. There’s a grand piano in the drawing room, heaps of CDs, bedrooms are sunny, beds have beautiful linen, new bathrooms are on their way and the garden is divine – languid terraces, organic potager, summerhouse, pool. Marie loves to cook, and great dinners are shared ‘en famille’ while the owners’ children play with your own. One of the best – and surprisingly close to the autoroute.
