Les Tourterelles Apartment occupies half of the First floor of a C17th Village house, and was completely renovated in 2014 by an expert Restoration Artisan. He took great care to retain all of the original features in order to give visitors a memorable stay in a truly Authentic French village house. For your comfort all new facilities, plumbing and electrics have been installed.
Understated but tastefully decorated, the Apartment has beautiful views out over the walled garden and plunge pool, rooftops, neighbouring gardens and fields..
It is very spacious (almost 50 sq metres) and is luminous with high wood beam ceilings. The main Salon is open- plan. The bedroom area is romantic and spacious with soft lighting and is made private with heavy linen curtains. It has real opening windows, morning sun and a view out over the guests courtyard. Thick stone walls keep the apartment cool during the hot months. There are lots of big windows that open and heavy wooden shutters to keep the Summer heat out.
The Apartment has its own private entrance via a wide external stone staircase with a little Terrace at the top. Right next to these stairs with rambling vines is a ground floor Courtyard for guests only to sit outside with Coffee and Croissants in the morning sun or have a BBQ in the evening.
Guests are welcome to use the Plunge Pool which is shared with the house.
Les Tourterelles is equally a lovely place during the Winter months when central heating, full insulation and new double glazed windows keep it warm and cosy.
The fit out is very high quality: The supremely comfortable Bed 160cm (King size) is a Simmons top range and is dressed with white French Linen dried in the sun. There is a choice of real, rectangular Australian Jumbuck wool pillows, or pillows with synthetic filling. A generous supply of fresh Bath Towels and Pool towels is included. A well equipped little kitchen means you can eat at home if you need a night off from eating out in the dozens of restaurants nearby. All levels of dining out are available nearby, from casual little bistros with outdoor dining by the river or a Michelin star restaurant at the bottom of the hill in Daglan.
The Lobby area allows plenty of luggage storage.
The bathroom is beautiful, immaculate and unusually large for France(10 sq m) with Double Handbasins, Italian Shower and a Full size bath with shower attachment - and a view to die for.
High wooden beam ceilings ensure that the apartment is luminous, fresh and airy, and no risk of hitting your head on those beautiful but sometimes uncomfortably low beams one encounters in many old places.
Even though it is in the centre of the Village Les Tourterelles and the environment around it is very peaceful. There is almost no noise other than birdsong and Cicadas in Summer, which is wonderful for a good nights sleep.
There is enough space for just one car tucked up against our old stone wall.
Les Tourterelles is really an Apartment just for two people and not suitable for children.
