About owner/property manager
We are working professionals living in Switzerland. My husband got this house from his grandmother who purchased it for him when he was a toddler. We enjoy coming to this place for a peaceful getting away from it all. We love to amble around in the surrounding hills, looking for mushrooms and wild berries (my husband makes blackberry jam) and going on excursions in the vicinity.
owner/property manager purchased this Farmhouse in 1955
Why owner/property manager chose Monsols
This house dates back to the first part of the 19th century. It has very thick stone walls that keep the house cool on hot summer days. We renovated it a few years ago, installing central heating, a double sided Swedish oven that looks like a fireplace, 2 bathrooms and a modern kitchen. The patio that faces south and the garden offers a spectacular view over gentle rolling hills, fields and forest.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Probably the thing that always amazing us is how soundly we sleep there, away from all noise. This house is a true haven for the peace and quiet lovers, people who enjoy old fashioned activities, like hiking in nature, lounging around and reading, cooking, playing games and yes, there is cable TV and Internet with wifi as well.

A good holiday.
Enjoyed our stay. The house was well equipped and roomy. It is in a quiet spot and we enjoyed sitting outside especially as the weather was hot. It is well situated for travelling in the region and we enjoyed the scenery and the villages. Overall a good holiday.
A hidden jewel in the rural heartlands of France
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.
Lovely home in quiet location
We had a great stay at the farmhouse! The beds were a bit uncomfortable, but that was a more a matter of taste than of any problem with them. The place was beautiful, both inside and out. A bit tricky to find - follow the instructions that Barbara provides to you and you'll be all right! In fact, overall, her instructions for the house were really helpful and the caretaker was very nice, too. The trip was all the relaxation we hoped, with a well-stocked kitchen for cooking, plenty of pots and pans and cutlery and flatware. Great water pressure and temperature, great heating. Highly recommended.
Charming, quiet getaway with wonderful owners
The farmhouse was lovely. It was very quiet, immaculate and relaxing. The owner has taken great care to make you feel at home with comfy beds, updated bathrooms, child safety features, in-unit washing machine, a dishwasher, and a well-stocked kitchen. I don't think I have ever slept so well and the cool temperatures were a welcome break from hot weather elsewhere, especially at night. The nicely decorated bedrooms are very large, as is the eat-in kitchen with a table for 8. The view from the windows and porch is incredible- cows, hills, farms, forests, and a beautiful star-filled sky at night.
The owner was very responsive, with excellent English (which was a relief since my written French isn't so great) and the housekeeper who greeted us was very friendly and helpful. We were relieved to see clear instructions on using the washer, how to recycle, etc. We highly recommend this for anyone who wants a quiet vacation off the beaten path.
One note-- MAKE SURE YOU FOLLOW THE OWNER'S DIRECTIONS rather than your GPS to locate the property! Google Maps kept taking us down narrow, overgrown dirt roads that were incompatible with our compact rental car. It is not hard to find the property using paved roads so don't fall for it like we did.
Cette ancienne bâtisse bien rénovée est agréable et fonctionnelle. Nous y avons passé le Noël en famille et avions ainsi pu apprécier la cheminée.

Maison pas tres propre. Jardin pas entretenu. Interieur salle a manger crottes de souris. Tv poussiéreuse. .
Je viens de voir votre revue. Je suis un peu étonnée. Il est clair et c'est indiqué qu'il s'agit d'une résidence secondaire et nous dépendons des services de personnes de confiance pour assurer la propreté des lieux. Toutefois, lorsque nous nous y rendons, nous trouvons généralement les lieux propres, sans crottes de souris. Il n'y a d'ailleurs pas de salle à manger, mais une cuisine habitable. Le jardin n'est effectivement pas manicuré, mais entretenu de manière raisonable. La tonte se fait régulièrement grâce à l'engagement d'un service. Je voudrais aussi attirer l'attention sur le fait que pour le prix d'une chambre d'hôtel de catégorie moyenne, vous avez une maison à disposition avec 2 chambres à coucher, 2 salles de bains, une cuisine bien équipée, un salon confortable et une terrace avec une vue splendide, le tout dans un havre de tranquilité.
The Beaujolais and South Burgundy wine routes, several visitable Castles nearby, great area for hiking. Medieval and picturesque villages in the nearby Brionnais (30 km to La Clayette), Charollais cows market in Saint-Christophe (on Wednesdays) Antique Stores in Chateauneuf, Macon is worth a visit.
