We were looking for somewhere to escape from the world for a while, and this is definitely it! The hamlet is very quiet, and from the front door you can walk or cycle for miles through sunflower fields and vineyards. Cycles are provided and were perfectly comfortable for the use we made of them - going out for a picnic, or to the local tennis court.
The swimming pool is wonderful, clean and very private. We were disappointed that the current thingy did not work while we were there, but Nick has since re-assured us that it is working now.
The barn itself is very spacious on the ground floor, with a lovely long dining table. Everything was very clean when we arrived. Outside is a little private garden, full of lavender and herbs, a lovely place to have breakfast or lunch. There is also a larger garden, the owners', which you are welcome to share.
Upstairs is a bit smaller, but as there are only 2 of us that didn't matter.
Good shops were a short distance away by car, but when we arrived the welcome pack was very helpful.
We could not have been made more welcome, we had all the privacy we wanted but the owners were there to help if needed.
If you are looking, as we were, for the typical rural french idyll - small hamlet, buy your baguette from a lady who comes round in a van and leaves it hanging on the gate, take an evening stroll through fields of sunflowers, soak up the sun with a pool that is private and because of the high walls around it has just the right combination of sun and shade, then this is for you. We will definitely be going back.
