Our free ranging chickens, and Donald and Daisy Duck add to the charm, and their antics can keep you amused for hours! A converted barn within the grounds is set up as a games room for use by guests. The adjoining terrace with garden and river views makes a lovely place to enjoy an evening drink. It is possible to enjoy a day trip to the coast from Le Scierie, with the Mediterranean towns of Narbonne and Perpignan two hours east and Biarritz and Bayonne on the Atla...
