The
Experience

Within this peaceful estate in the rolling Berry countryside sits a serene farmhouse sleeping twelve, as well as three additional gîtes for guests. The property shares a pool, sauna and tennis court with the rest of the estate, but the large Jacuzzi and gazebo in the acres of garden are just for you. This is about as far as you can get from city life and there’s plenty of space to spread out.

A car is necessary to get here, but once you’ve swept through the woods and the estate’s grand entrance it can stay at the house. The possibilities for fun right on the doorstep are endless, with chateaux to explore and the vineyards and restaurants of the Loire Valley to sample.

No self-respecting Frenchman would allow guests to eat day-old pain, so host Luc delivers fresh bread and croissants to your door each morning; perfect with a covering of the local ash-dusted goats cheese.

Introducing

Claude Hérelle

Claude and Luc Hérelle run the estate for the owners, who live in Corsica for most of the year. Claude lived in England for eight years and speaks perfect English – excellent if your French is a bit under par. Together they keep things running like clockwork, along with much-loved Guinness – the dog, not the pint.
