It is a very impressive residence, with magnificent spacious rooms full of traditional furniture and original features, whilst also having all the modern facilities required. The grounds are ideal with lots of places to sit and take in the stunning views. There is plenty of garden furniture, a very good BBQ and lots of play equipment for children. The owners are very friendly and could not have done more to make our stay enjoyable. When we arrived they gave us some home made and local produce and generously allowed us to eat their home grown salad.

We appreciated the kitchen and its facilities, the extra comfort of the bathrooms, and the very pleasant bedrooms... We would recommend it to friends looking for a quiet place, but situated not to far from the city of Roanne, for shopping and entertainment. We also enjoyed the walks along the Canal.
