Le Potager, or ‘The Kitchen Garden’ is totally authentic.
A fine twin staircase in red adorns the façade. The décor is simple and tasteful. You’ll feel at home straightaway around the family fireplace, where, in winter, Dominique will have lit a fire before your arrival. With books, CDs and familiar objects dotted around, this house really has a soul. Plus a dash of glamour in the bathroom with oval bath, like in Marilyn’s Monroe’s villa in Maibu.
On this former farm, the farmer workers who lived in the outbuildings, like Le Potager, had access to everything they needed. They could pick their fruit and vegetables fresh for each meal.And there are still some old pear trees from days gone by. In season, you can copy the farmers of yore, and pick your own dessert from the trees!
Just a hop from Le Potager, is Le Rempotoir (‘The Potting Shed’).
A huge red watchdog the size of a pony stands guard in front of this little country house. As the name suggests, this is where the head gardener used to re-pot flowers. Back in the day, he clearly had green fingers and a real gift for gardening, because he also created a ’Trigalière’ rose, which will soon be reintroduced.
2 rooms, sleeping up to 4 guests in total and, as a highlight, a picture of the Kama Sutra which speaks volumes about the possible delights in store for those who stay here.
