The domaine, or property, includes the main house, little house, barn and park.
The chosen décor for both houses reveals a mixture of modern and antique furnishings, textiles and fabrics, with an array of wonderful chandeliers, predominantly French in provenance, and a large eclectic collection of art.
In the main house there are four sumptuous en suite bedrooms, each one different from the other: uncluttered and luxurious. Further areas within the house to enjoy include the hall with concert Steinway and drawing room with views to the front and back of the house; the library with books from a ‘multitude of subjects’ both in French and English. On the ground floor the large kitchen with its copper pots, Godin stove and six-oven Aga has direct access to the beamed and elegant dining room peaceful at breakfast time or where candlelight provides a rich and more formal setting for dinner.
For guests who prefer a little more independence the ‘little house’ is just across the gravelled courtyard between the Main House and the cathedral-like barn. Originally the bake house and laundry, this charming house with its outside stone staircase, ‘trumpet’ flowers and vines still houses the impressive bread oven where once a week the loaves were baked for the many tenants of the surrounding farms.
The interior of the ‘little house’ reflects the themes and colours of the main house with Kelims and oriental carpets, beautiful textiles, antique lighting and rich colours that enhance and bring to life exposed beams and brickwork, terracotta tiling and wooden floors complemented by modern bathrooms.
No matter whether you book a room or the entire property, there will never be more than fifteen guests at any one time. We suggest that families will be more comfortable in the Little House.
