  • Fabulous retreat for our large family gathering

    "Our party of 11 - 7 adults, 2 teenagers, and 2 small children gathered at Pascal's wonderful home at the end of July, to celebrate several momentous birthdays. We had spent a year anticipating this week, and we were not disappointed. Faultless, and we cannot recommend it highly enough. The home is grand without being overwhelming. Large airy rooms, polished wooden floors, stone staircases and thick stone walls, rooms lined with art books and music, tasteful, period furniture and antique sculpture. Solid working kitchen - not particularly modern, but in keeping, functional and practical for our large party (we ate in every night), giving easy access to the sweeping lawn down to the pool. Modern bathrooms and plentiful hot water. The largest pool (heated, and maintained throughout the week by a discrete gardener who arrived early to clean it and water pots) I have seen at a private holiday residence, and a fabulous tennis court which was well used during our week. We were in regular contact with Pascal prior to our arrival, he answered all our pre trip questions, and met us on arrival - and kindly allowed us to deposit our bags early so we could empty our car in order to carry out a big initial shop for our week. He is warm and welcoming - and justifiably proud of what he has created here. There are several eating areas - we ate in the sunny courtyard for breakfast ( having had a quick sortie by car to the award winning boulangerie), and every evening meal was at a large table on the lawn, shaded by trees, with overhead lanterns for when the dark set in. There are other smaller seating areas dotted around the property - our party could disperse and gather at will, find space for ourselves, but be together comfortably. On the Thursday evening of our stay, we held our special celebration - and were treated to a wonderful evening hosted by Laurent Jauvin, a chef recommended by Pascal. We couldn't have been more pleased - bringing his own linens, cutlery etc, Laurent and his assistant created an atmospheric table for us in the garden, and served an amazing 3 course meal - taking special care with the children in the party. Pascal can't take credit for the long sunny days which we also enjoyed for our stay, but deserves much credit for everything else, this is a truly lovely setting for a large family gathering. Thank you Pascal!"
