We are Penny & Peter an English couple who have been letting our place to guests for the last 10 years. We understand how important it is to have a sense of your own space to relax in and our place is a" home away from home". We have slowly been retiring into French life with renovation projects to keep us busy. We enjoy discovering new things and places out here, be it a new market or a great bottle of wine. We invite you make yourself at home, enjoy the beautiful surroundings, whether that is lounging by the pool or getting out to a few castles and neighbouring towns.

Happy Holidays,
Peter & Penny

We had a great time in a lovely setting - peaceful countryside just a short drive from lots of interesting places. The house was perfect for two of us and a young baby - it had everything we needed and Peter and Penny were very attentive whilst still giving us our own space.
