We stayed here again in 2012 and everything was just as excellent as when I last reviewed it on 13 September 2011. It is a large house, elegantly furnished in a very French style with large comfortable rooms.
We arrived a little early so we relaxed under the trees until Marie-Claude arrived to welcome us, enjoying the peaceful rural setting out of earshot of the autoroute which was only a few kilometres away.
Dinner started outside under a large canopy, but we moved into the enormous kitchen to finish the meal as the clouds built up overhead and the unseasonable rain followed. The following morning’s breakfast was as lavish as ever and, like the dinner, was freshly prepared from the best quality local produce.
Once again it was a marvellous rest stop on our journey south. It would also make an ideal base for visiting the centre of France. We shall return whenever we are in that part of France.
