Two of the apartments, PINOT NOIR and CHARDONNAY are in the original farmhouse, one is an independent converted stable/pigeonnier, LE PIGEONNIER, and three are on the first floor of the former barn, PINOT BLANC, GAMAY and ALIGOTE. All the apartments are spacious, comfortable and well-equipped, each with private patio with garden furniture and gas BBQ's. There are guests' laundry facilities, with detergent, free of charge; ample free car parking, free WIFI available; plenty of sun-loungers around the pool, and a lovely herb garden in the flower-bedecked courtyard which guests are encouraged to make use of for their culinary creations.
