A light-filled valley and utter solitude. Eco-minded Pascal and Frédérique fell in love with this remote hamlet, then restored the main house and a pretty stone cottage with three, very private, bedrooms, all with their own entrance. Find gorgeous linen, gleaming antique furniture, good bathrooms. Wander up the path and over a bridge to the welcoming main house for a hunker by the stove, breakfasts of homemade brioches and honey from their bees, or a divine supper of local meat and home grown veg. Swim in the stream under the old bridge (catch a trout in the rockpool?). Hike, cycle, explore… or do nothing.
