The Experience

You’re greeted with kindness and maybe a glass of the owners’ ‘Big Easy’ wine, made by Ernie Els the famous golf player and distributed in France thanks to Jean-Baptiste. Bedrooms have fluffy bedding, thick pillows and seductive lighting – they’re cosy, comforting, warm and intimate. If the weather keeps you indoors you can sit in an armchair with a book, nip down to the bar for a snifter, or over to the kitchen to chat while the cooking goes on.

Breakfast is a performance! Wood-burner lit, lamps glowing and a table groaning with bread, brioche, croissants and fresh cheeses from the nearby farm. Everything is locally sourced and organic so it’s worth having supper too and finding out Jean-Baptiste’s interesting history. If you want to ‘do for yourselves’ there’s a good kitchen and space for several cooks.

A large sloping garden has a smooth lawn, bird-filled mature trees and utter peace. Sit on the terrace and admire the views.

Reviews

Jean Baptiste is an amazing host. We love visiting here such a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend a visit here. You won’t be disappointed!

Chris, Nottingham

Jean-Baltiste is an outstanding host who is passionate about La Plonploniere and sets a very high standard of both accommodation and meals. The dinner he made for us was exceptional and his local knowledge was invaluable. We got up early next morning to go to the market with Jean-Baptiste, which was fascinating. Our party of 4 had the best time possible and I strongly recommend this place to stay - you will not be disappointed!

Rob, Derby

Anna, North Bovey

We had a very pleasant stay at La Plonplonière. Jean-Baptiste has a great capacity to welcome visitors, he is such a charming guest who shares his love for golf and gastronomy. Last but not least, he made the link for us with a french pro providing us a unique golf experience in some of the prestigious golf courses located in the area.

This is Shem of a place. The beautifully restored barn and farm house make a welcoming environment with a cozy fireplace heaters in both the common spaces in the house and guest areas. The rooms are very nice with wood floors. The rooms have both AC AND Heating units for great comfort. The nice bathroom with a good sized shower has lots of towels. And the bed with linens is perfect for a restful sleep. The morning breakfast had a great assortment of bread with pastries as well as natural yogurt and butter from a local farmer. Lastly, the arranged welcome dinner was excellent. AAA+++

La Plonplonière is a fantastic place to stay. Every last detail is perfect- the ambiance, the stunning decor, the delicious dinner, the sumptuous rooms, the fabulous breakfast, the beautiful gardens and, above all, the welcoming host who caters for golfers and non golfers alike with such care. The area is so worth a visit with so much to do and see and only a short distance from Calais. I can’t recommend enough!

Jane, Horsham

I wish all the best to Jean-Baptiste and his dream project, for which he clearly gave his heart and soul and left nothing to chance, from the furniture to the food. Everything was thought through to the very last detail, including passing on the heritage which he makes a point in playing his part in, reflected through the remains of the old building which lives on in the structure of the barn.

Amandine, Sawday's Inspector

Hidden jewel! Two days of gastronomy, luxury and relaxation in beautiful countryside. Jean-Baptiste is an excellent host making your stay so special ! Thank you Jean-Baptiste! We will come back!

Catherine, Gordes

As the first English visitors to have the pleasure of having three days at La Plonplonerie we could not have been made more welcomed and comfortable in this charming old French Farm conversion. Jean-Baptiste, with his perfect English, sense of humour and ability to produce original French cuisine is the ideal host. As golfers we were delighted to be close to so many good courses, not forgetting the fun putting green outside your own bedroom window! Every detail of luxury has been thought of and delivered to give you a wonderful stay at La Plonplonerie. Well done Jean-Baptiste!

Introducing

Jean-Baptiste Aubert

Well-travelled Jean-Baptiste finally settled back in France in 2010. Here he found the dream farm that is now his living place. He defines himself as a hedonist, who loves life and people, who is fond of hosting guests, who is passionate but also very lucky. He likes to listen to peoples' stories and enjoys passing on the history and heritage of the barn and the area. Obviously he likes golf!
