If you want to relax, enjoy great food, wine, and step back into history then this area of France is just for you. Maison Des Reves is a 19th Century house with spacious orchard garden is located in the peaceful village of Varennes Sur Fouzon.
There is ample off road parking. Once the gates are closed it is an entirely safe and secure site for children and pets.
The ‘house of dreams’ is set in a secluded orchard garden. A variety of luscious fruit trees and flower beds create a perfect canvas as you relax and enjoy sweet unpolluted air that carries the fragrance of the garden’s many rose bushes during long summer days, The warm endless evenings can be spent sampling the local wines on the patio, and as the sun falls you can watch the bats darting across the star filled night skies as you accompany your wine with a smooth cheese produced just a few miles from the house.
Come to Maison des Reves and be a part of the dream
The beautiful house centres round a large kitchen. This was the traditional meeting room of the family and is an ideal opportunity to try out your French culinary arts and enjoy typically French social meal times. It has recently been fitted with light oak cupboards and work surfaces. Your meals can be served on an antique rosewood and mahogany circular table with six carved chairs.
As you enter through the front door from the orchard garden the long central hallway gives access to all the rooms. The large lounge with period leather chairs, sofa, recliner and double bed settee has a beautiful marble fireplace and hearth and is a very comfortable room to relax in. Or you can watch a video or DVD.
Opposite this room is the double bedroom which has an antique mahogany wardrobe and a chest of drawers. Further along the hallway down two steps brings you to the smaller bedroom on the left. This has bunk beds and a single bed. It also has an oak floor and a full picture window.
