We have been welcoming much loved family dogs since we started renting in 2000 very successfully, and indeed with many returning each year. The majority of local restaurants and vineyards welcome them too. There are lovely walks directly from the villa through the vineyards and along the single track lanes. It is very easy to bring them on the ferry in the dog friendly cabins.


The villa is surrounded by a network of single track lanes without hedges which are perfect for cycling and walking. One of the great joys in rural France is to enjoy a walk or cycle to a local restaurant.
We have strong links with several local family and dog friendly vineyards for our guests to enjoy.


The four First floor bedrooms  have heating units
The two ground floor bedrooms have electric radiators

Kitchen and sitting room have Jotul wood burners and all logs are complimentary
