Fanny cares deeply that everyone be happy, and does brilliant table d’hôtes. A full house makes quite a crowd and when B&B and gîte guests come together there can be a dozen at table. But the big garden opens its arms to all and has some comforting mature trees under which guests may link up for summer pétanque. Dark beams have been painted pale, furniture has been sanded and smudge-finished. Pretty and cosy bedrooms – in the long low farmhouse attic – are colour-coded, while the chalet suite is snug with its own little patio. The garden is peaceful and guests love it here.
