La Petite Pâquerette is a recently re-furbished and tastefully renovated country style cottage, with exposed original beams throughout and lots of charm. The cottage was formerly an extension of an impressive timber structure barn, which still stands today, and was used for storage when part of a small working farm. Approximately 25 years ago the farm was saved from dilapidation and later still, in 2006, our French holiday cottages (Le Petit Hameau) were created.
(It is said that the French résistance hid allied airmen at the farm during the Second World War; we can tell you more about this when you come to stay)
La Petite Pâquerette is a deceptively spacious cottage, fronting onto a traditional French courtyard setting with parking available immediately outside your cottage. The cottage sleeps two people and has the benefit of an open plan ground floor living space with a double bedroom on the first floor. This cottage has electric heating throughout but also benefits from a lovely wood burner for to create a cosy atmosphere on chilly evenings and winter nights. From the kitchen area there is very convenient direct access through double French doors to your own patio and the shared garden area, which overlooks the French countryside and where you will find a table and chairs for alfresco dining, reading a book, or simply passing the time of day. Modern comforts include satellite flat screen TV, DVD player and Wi-Fi, films, games and books.
