Interaction with guests
The garden and facilities (all to the rear of the property) are private and not overlooked. They are solely for your use. The current owners, Adrian & Denise, live on site in the separate Victorian quarters, the two windows to the right of the picture. We are on hand to offer guests help and advice. Having our own private garden area and separate front access enables us to remain totally in the background so that guests are not unduly disturbed during their holiday. The garden and facilities (all to the rear of the property) are private and not overlooked. We also have domestic cats who patrol the garden so Maison de Philomene is not suitable for pets.
