We have been careful to retain the original features of our Charentaise 'longere' or longhouse. Built solidly out of local stone and oak, its hugely thick walls protect against the heat of high summer, keeping the interiors cool. All rooms in the house have floors of oak or handmade terracotta, with many featuring exposed beams, original stone window sinks or fireplaces.
Bedrooms in the main house
All of our bedrooms are simply, yet stylishly furnished with quality beds, mattresses and linen.
We have three rooms for guests who prefer space to themselves.
Two rooms are either twin bedded for sharing, or with king sized beds for a couple.
Our largest room is spacious enough for three - although usually just two guests share.
Finally, there is a lovely twin room with stone dove-cote windows.
All guest rooms in the house have en-suite, private, modern shower rooms, except for two sharing a closely situated shower room.
Our Garden Lodges
The latest additions to our accommodation are the two Garden Lodges, which are solidly built wooden cabins each with spacious private shower rooms. Located in the garden, away from the house and closer to nature, one is in the orchard and one by the lake. Each are furnished with a double bed and are therefore perfect either for couples or a single person who prefers more privacy.
So what do we provide in the rooms?
Super soft towels
A pool towel each
Organic and eco-friendly handwash, bodywash and shampoo. All made exclusively for us by our massage therapist and aromatherapy expert, Jan. These are presented in large bottles designed to be refilled, rather than wasteful and awkward little hotel sizes. If you would like to buy these products they are also available in suitcase friendly sizes.
Also available on request
UK travel adapter plug (for a 10€ returnable deposit)
Hot water bottle
What you won't find
Wi-fi throughout the property (although it is available in the guest kitchen) or any TV's. We encourage you to switch off as much as possible.
Guest spaces inside
The hub of the house is your guest kitchen and dining room, which is open to you 24hrs. You can help yourself to a wide selection of teas and infusions, coffee, water and juice whenever you want. Breakfast is served around the huge dining table and you can catch up with the world, if you need to, by connecting to the wi-fi network.
The spacious guest salon leads onto the dining terrace. In the cooler months it provides a quiet place to read a book next to the new wood burning stove, whilst in the summer you can take advantage of its thick stone walls to escape from the heat.
