Escape the real world & rediscover your inner calm. It sounds clichéd, but sitting with a long cold drink on the sun terrace, soaking up the valley view, the whisper of the wind through the forest of oak & the birdsong dancing from tree to tree, we defy you not to find peace from your hectic home and work life. But getting back to nature doesn't mean you can't listen to some good music on the outdoor speaker system. Or keep up-to-date with the wi-fi. It also doesn't mean you have work around ancient facilities - you'll find a modern, well equipped kitchen that's a joy to use.

You'll also find 2 modern bathrooms, with great water pressure and plenty of hot water. There's a TV, with free UK channels and DVD player, but to be honest you'll spend most of your waking hours out on the BBQ terrace, or wa...

I would highly recommend La Maison du Loup, it's just incredible and perfectly located. Nik, our host, was exceptionally welcoming and accommodating too, it was more like being at home and we're already planning our next visit! A big thank you once again Nik!

This is one of the best weekends I've had. The setting is just stunning. There is even a river at the end of the property and a short walk away, there is the most gorgeous dipping pool. The town is close by with a choice of restaurants but to be honest the food cooked by the host was way better...

Management response:

It was a real pleasure to have you at La Maison du Loup Kate. Thanks for your kind words and come again soon. 😊

Nik was super helpful from the beginning and very accommodating when our flights were unexpectedly changed, she amended our booking without any fuss. We were a family of 6 and the house easily catered for all of us. The house was fully equipped with everything we needed and more (the kids loved the hammock). The kitchen was a pleasure to...

About the neighborhood
The inhabitants of Gréolières fled the town and crossed the valley to the village of Cipieres, taking the disease with them. The survivors who returned vowed never to live in the old buildings again and rebuilt their village just a short distance away. Even today many of the locals still own a few walls among the ruins, but the decision to leave the old village at rest remains.

The commune of Gréolières extends to 5267 hectares and once used to be predominantly farmland. Le Foulon itself was a farm, with the present building being the Maison de Maitre, or in other words, the boss' house. The farm workers lived just down the valley.

It's difficult to imagine the forested hills being cultivated, but take a walk and you'll be stunned at the work that must have gone in to terrace...
