We are a family-run business with a passion for organic gardening and great wine. We have just moved to France and we would like to build up a successful rural retreat for people who look for a comfortable house place to stay, set in beautiful gardens and within an hour of all the attractions of the Loire region. On request, we offer dinners to your personal taste, which can be brought to your house and are prepared by Maria who has worked as a private cook in the UK, Italy and Jersey. Alastair, who is qualified in wines and spirits, can provide a selection of Loire wines to enjoy with your dinner.
