It is a beautifully furnished, warm and very cosy little house. We found it very clean and the kitchen was supplied with everything needed. We did enjoy our stay there and so did our dog! She loved the walks in the safe fenced area around the pond. The house is conveniently situated if you want to explore the beauty of the valley with its numerous chateaus and museums and picturesque nature, as well as for a quiet country retreat. Thank you so much, Jane! We have already recommended 'Le Petit Bijou' to friends of ours and we'll be very happy to come back again!!

Chateaux, markets are a lot of fun. Great cafes to enjoy a coffee and soak up the French way of life. Scenery with the vineyards is amazing. Everyone was so friendly even though we were not great with the French language. Would highly recommend Les Volets Bleus.

The pool was very welcome too as we managed to coordinate our stay with a heatwave. Carol and Carl are lovely hosts – warm and friendly, but respectful and had some great ideas of what to do and see. The cottage is in a perfect place – really in the countryside, but supermarkets are a quick drive, along with Chateaux, markets, restaurants and wine tastings. Yearning to come back.
