You’ll love your hosts: Jatin, attentive and hands-on; Laurence, easy, serene and a good cook (try her nougat ice cream!). The wing of their 19th-century presbytery, once used for christenings and confirmations, has become a plush and pretty gite, with bedrooms that can be rented individually. Extremely cosy and comfortable, they come in fashionable muted colours or in Asian style; mattresses are deep and firm, and garnished with square French pillows. Downstairs are the sitting and dining rooms, elegant and cool. The village is remote with a 13th-century church; beyond are the vineyards of Champagne.
