Pascal teaches and tends the veg patch, Evelyne is an artist with a proper sense of colour and texture. Both hugely enjoyed doing up the barn beside their house, and now love sharing local lore and swapping stories with B&B guests (in English), though the barn is separate from their house. The rather disparate exterior belies the warmth and liveliness of the eco-friendly materials and fabrics used inside, the new bedding and smart bathrooms, and the cosy comfort of the wood burner. There’s space and softness in the living rooms, lots of peaceful garden – and so much to discover beyond. Remarkable value and so welcoming.
