More about La Plaine: The big house was built 40 years ago by my grand-father who still lives in the farm below. It is a perigourdine style house with almost all the original furnitures from the 70's. The big terrace facing south is the perfect spot to enjoy your breakfast and dinner by the pool. For the rest of the day you can stay under the old oak tree in front of the house or do some farniente by the swimming pool. The swimming pool consists of a flat area 90 cm deep were kids can play safely and another part 2.40 m at the deepest. The small house was built 20 years ago and has its own kitchen, bathroom and WC. Although there is only one bedroom, two people can sleep in the clic-clac sofa.
Altogether the house can sleep 10 people in 5 bedrooms + 2 in the sofa. Travel cots are available upon request. We also have one bed suitable for 3-5 year old child. Last but not least a proper BBQ is also available
