Wonderfully relaxing week in an idyllic setting

5 of 5
We spent a week here and absolutely loved it. It's the perfect place to switch off and wind down. Clive and Beverley are excellent hosts, and we were very grateful for the welcome package (milk etc.) and the lettuce and potatoes from the garden. The saltwater pool is fabulous and the grounds are just beautiful, as is the surrounding countryside. We'd definitely return!

A hidden jewel in the rural heartlands of France

5 of 5
With a storm brewing we pulled into the courtyard at Les Jacquets on a dark afternoon. We thought that we had discovered Cold Comfort Farm. On entering the house we were totally surprised. A beautiful kitchen just as one would imagine to find in a Beaujolais farmhouse, fully equipped for cooking, eating and drinking. Views across the wide landscape to the hills beyond to be enjoyed from the window above the sink and outside of the backdoor are Rosemary, Fennel and other herbs. Moving into the sitting room we found a cosy room that shared an open log fire with the kitchen; plenty of logs in the adjacent barn if required. The house also had central heating so we didn’t actually need to light the fire. There is a beautiful bathroom downstairs and an even more beautiful bathroom upstairs that services two large and airy bedrooms, that also enjoy the view across the fields. A short drive into Monsols and a fine drive to La Clayette (not to be missed). There are good walks to be had all around and especially from the Col de Crie. The owners were extremely helpful and just a telephone call away. We cannot praise Les Jacquets high enough and would recommend it to anyone who would wish to have a very ‘French’ experience.
