La Petite Ecurie is a pretty two bedroom stone cottage converted from an old stable building to provide accommodation for up to 4 people plus infant.
The cottage opens onto a courtyard on one side and has a private garden with terrace on the other. La Petite Ecurie is centrally heated and available for rental all year round- ideal for cosy Autumn/Winter breaks.
Guests have exclusive use of the pool (securely fenced, perfect for children) with garden furniture and sun loungers, which has its own south-facing terrace, overlooking the beautiful countryside. The pool is open from late-May to mid-September and is cleaned daily. Beyond the pool area is an enclosed paddock, ideal for ball games.
Bike hire is available and we have a range of garden toys and games for children.
