The house is long-faced, and refined; the grounds (superb) come with a fishing pond and ‘aperitif gazebo’. The Migons (hugely interesting and friendly) have expertly renovated this unusual house with its barn-enclosed courtyard, two towers and covered terrace. Big, north-facing bedrooms are elegant and comfortable behind their shutters, and keep the housekeepers busy. Expect leather sofas and a suit of armour, colourful beams above antique furniture, two billiard tables, and bikes, ping-pong and drums in the barn. Your within an easy drive of plenty or towns and villages where you can get a jolly good supper.
