Les Volets Blancs with its attached cottage Les Rosiers, accommodating up to 11 people is an ideal property for large gathering of family or friends who want a well appointed country house for a memorable relaxing holiday with complete privacy. The two can be rented together for at all times ; couples, friends or families who wish to have a quiet French country holiday can rent either the of the two houses separately ,apart from during July and August , and have exclusive use of the pool and garden - the house and the gite are never let to different groups of people at the same time . The rates displayed here refer to the two houses combined. Please enquire for separate rates .
At one time the property was the site of the village bakery . The main house, ``Les Volets Blancs ``,displays some features that the proprietors may have added as trade prospered ,such as marble and stone fireplaces ,steps up to the front door and a discreet Art Deco frieze painted around the base of the exterior.`` Les Rosiers``,the gite ,still retains the original cast iron bread oven , set into the living room wall . ( no longer in use ,unfortunately ,aspiring artisan baker please note -there is a more recent gas oven for everyday catering !).We have tried to retain and enhance character and style whilst making the properties comfortable and easy for our guests . There is a library of cookery books which might be useful to guests who have been inspired by the wonderful produce found locally . The living room of the main house opens onto the terrace and gazebo for outside dining . The front door ,under a glass verandah opens into the hall.The tiled kitchen/dining room with stone fireplace is to the right ;at the end of the hall is the downstairs shower room and the living room is to the left . A wooden staircase in the corner of the living room leads up to the landing with access to two large double rooms ,one with a single and a double bed and also a twin room .The bathroom with bath is at the end of the landing .All rooms look out onto the garden .
``Les Rosiers``, ( the former bakery ) is a two bedroomed cottage attached to the main house . The cottage was renovated in 2006 and now has two bedrooms with connecting bathroom with shower ,living /dining room and a fully equipped kitchen area .The gite still retains an air of rusticity with its tiled floors, beams and polished floorboards .The back door from the kitchen area leads out to a secluded west facing private patio and garden with BBQ, table and chairs ,quite hidden from the main garden .There is also space outside the front to eat and relax within sight of the pool and main garden.
