The property’s extensive land ensures that both we and our guests can enjoy the gardens and surrounding countryside without ever feeling on top of one another. It is bordered by agricultural land farmed and maintained by local farmers. With only two sets of neighbours close yet far enough away to guarantee privacy, guests can be assured of a relaxing stay.

Deer, boar, badgers, rabbits, hares and a plethora of birds can often be seen in the gardens and surrounding fields.

We strive to be as environmentally friendly as possible, helping to preserve our beautiful region through recycling, use of our on-site composting bins and eco-friendly cleaning products. At certain times of the year we use home grown produce in our breakfasts and the gîte’s welcome basket.
