The owners live in the handsome 18th-century manoir, and the guests’ suites in the grey-shuttered stables. But the setting is the thing: three hectares of parkland where birds trill, hares leap, and wild boar come snuffling at night. Enjoy it all from the comfort of your own spacious terrace. Etienne is your host, highly professional, easy to talk to, full of enthusiasm for his family’s venture (his ancestors once worked on the estate). The two ground-floor suites are airy and light, with white walls, elegant colours, high rafters, immaculate beds. You’ll find little kitchenettes in the Monarque and Belle-Epoque rooms – good enough for light cooking (microwave, fridge, coffee machine) and a table inside and out. They’re spacious too – Monarque’s terrace alone is 50 sq metres!
