I was looking for an experience of rural France, and a stay at La Pepiniere did not disappoint. It is a charming bed and breakfast with the option of dinner with the family (excellent food - and wine - and great company).
There is ample parking. The evening meal, cooked by Damien, was superb and the "continental" breakfast was also good. The room I stayed in is a converted barn that has retained many of its original features.
Pierre and Damien have put a huge amount of time and effort into the buildings and grounds, but most importantly, the atmosphere, that ensures a stress-free visit a world away from the "rat race".
