Pool with a view
You will be drawn on arrival to the large oval pool, surrounded by wooden decking, lawns and a tiled terrace, Here you can enjoy the heat of the sun on one of  the numerous sun loungers, or curl up in the shade on a huge outdoor sofa with a book. Or, just relax under the gazebo on a comfy recliner and take in the panoramic views of the French countryside. Steps lead you in to the large informal gardens, which are an ongoing project and Adrian's personal passion. 


Covered Terrace

Outside dining takes place on the opposite side of the house from the pool, under the cover of a charming roofed terrace. The position of the terrace enhances your meals, taking advantage of the warmth of the sun at lunch time and cooler shade at dinner.

Also on this decked terrace is further outdoor seating,  giving you another area in which to relax.

You are welcome to explore all parts of the grounds and garden.
The potager with its raised beds, is where we grow some of our vegetables.

Cherries, plums, apricots, figs, apples and pears are some of the fruits from our orchards which ripen through the season. Help yourself!

A rustic seating area and copper fire pit are at the end of the meandering path cut through our meadow.

The garden is full of peaceful places to stop for a moment and be still. You can enjoy the many varieties of scented flowers and shrubs, or watch the  butterflies, cheeky gekos and dragonflies go about their business.


Beyond the walls

Of course the glorious countryside is literally on your doorstep. Take a leisurely stroll along the myriad paths and tracks that wind through the fields of vines, sunflowers and wheat.
