The setting, the biking, the food and the sites were beyond our expectations. A group of 9 of us had the barn for 10 days of biking and exploring the area. The routes were well planned with excellent maps to follow and each day took us in a different direction to a special point of interest. On nonbiking days w did wine tasting and visited a cave. The dinners were all delicious featuring regional fare. The hosts, John and Aileen couldn't have been more accomodating. A wonderful experience that we will be talking about for a long time.

You will stay in one of the large, light and airy rooms which are individually decorated in a fresh country style and colour scheme, complete with beautiful hand-made patchwork quilts. Each room has its own smart and spacious en-suite shower room. We have 4 rooms with King-size beds and ensuite shower rooms - 3 on the first floor (Iris, Lys and Jonquille) and one on the ground floor (Rose) with a glazed door opening onto the garden terrace. Our 5th bedroom (Coquelicot), on the first floor, has two single beds and an ensuite shower room. There is a very spacious central living and dining area for guests' sole use. This includes a small kitchen area with fridge, and sink for making hot and cold drinks and a large dining table which seats up to 10. There are two lounge areas (one on each floor) with comfortable sofas to relax into and and a selection of books, magazines and quality CD hi-fi for your entertainment. Double doors to the outside lead onto a large terrace with a further dining area and comfortable garden furniture. With plenty of outside space you have the choice whether to just sit and enjoy the beautiful views across the large garden and countryside and forest beyond or take one of the lovely local walks to relax and absorb the peace and quiet. ... more less
