Jan Riordan

I am an English woman and have been running this French 'Maison de Charme' bed and breakfast successfully for 8 years. I have restored my village house with style and colour, collecting and renovating traditional - and sometimes quirky - French furniture and artefacts in keeping with its character, and welcome people who will appreciate and care for it as I do.

I have a degree in humanities and am passionate about art, history and local culture and like to to share my enthusiasm and knowledge with guests. I can help you organise your itinerary to enjoy the best of the area for you in a few days .. or arrange a full week with wine tastings and guided tours, or themed holidays to suit your needs. Please ask.

The atmosphere here is calm and relaxed and my guests from all over the world often share a sociable evening together over a bottle of wine, or even a picnic in the garden.

I run this house on my own and to ensure I can give quality time and attention to all my guests I limit reservations to 2 nights minimum. Like most villages in the south, summer is the time for Fetes and having fun, so it can be livelier in the evenings, when it is a pleasure to stroll around the village or enjoy the balmy evenings in the garden with a drink. There is sometimes local entertainment in July/August and a swimming pool just for village use.

Quiet, well behaved children are welcome, but this house is not suitable for lots of lively children.
