Downstairs you will find a Lounge and Kitchen/Dining area which comes fully equipped with everything you could wish for to make a very pleasant stress free holiday plus a wood burning stove for those cooler evenings. From the Lounge there are French doors which open out onto the sunny private garden where we provide a BBQ, Garden Table & Chairs and Umbrella for alfresco outdoor eating.

We also have bicycles that can be used for leisurely rides around the stunning local countryside & vineyards which are within walking distance if you wish to purchase and sample some very nice local wines. You are in an area where there are many Domains for Wine Tasting and Tours are available. We are British owners who live in the Farmhouse which is completely separate to the rented Gites and are here if you need any help or advice but will not interfere if you prefer to do your own exploring.
