From the outside this is an imposing building with a rich history of accommodating officers of French law, but as you step into the beautiful reception area, be prepared for a surprise!

Our second stay in the Old Gendarmerie, and we enjoyed it every bit as much as the first. It's so convenient to be able to walk to the bakery, butcher and mini-supermarket in a couple of minutes, no need to use the car.

We have visited The Old Gendarmerie twice (in 2012 and 2015, both times in Le Lieutenant, booked through Joie de Vivre). It's the ONLY place that we have come back to on a holiday.
