The holiday cottage has been recently renovated to a very high standard and is suitable for between 2 - 4 adults, there are two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The cottage kitchen is equipped for people who like to cook and eating on the terrace is a real pleasure.
There is a large quiet garden for you to enjoy and perhaps observe the red squirrels or the birds of prey overhead. You may hear the woodpecker or see the hoopoes in summer. Ocasionally in the early morning you may also be fortunate enough to see deer in the garden. Horse riding can be organised with a local stable which specialises in rides through the vineyards.
This vacation rental is ideal for those who love wine. We can arrange visits for wine tastings or to buy wine, either with our neighbours or further afield, depending upon your requirements.
The cottage is a self-contained wing of Beau Sejour.
In the kitchen there are ample work surfaces made of granite and there is a gas cooker with five burners and a large oven. If you have the desire to shop at markets and then come home and cook then you will find a well equipped kitchen; fridge with a small freezer section, blender, vegetable steamer, toaster, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine. If necessary, there is an ironing board and an iron!
There is a dining area in the kitchen but more often meals take place outside on the west facing covered terrace. We have spent many wonderful evenings there watching the sun go down over the trees, listening to the birds and of course with a glass in the hand and a bottle on the table.
There are sun loungers and there is ample space on the terrace for eating and relaxing.
In the kitchen there are electric radiators for autumn and winter heating. There is a downstairs shower room equipped with wc, sink unit and a powerful shower with plenty of hot water. In addition there is an electric towel rail which is large enough to keep the shower room warm and towels dry.

All beds have new mattresses of good quality to provide support and comfort. There are curtains as well as shutters so the room is very private.
