There is a large quiet garden for you to enjoy and perhaps observe the red squirrels or the birds of prey overhead. You may hear the woodpecker or see the hoopoes in summer. Ocasionally in the early morning you may also be fortunate enough to see deer in the garden. Horse riding can be organised with a local stable which specialises in rides through the vineyards.
This vacation rental is ideal for those who love wine. We can arrange visits for wine tastings or to buy wine, either with our neighbours or further afield, depending upon your requirements.
The cottage is a self-contained wing of our house which is also a bed and breakfast. The cottage terrace flows into the terrace of the house but guests do tend to keep to their area unless invited to share an apperitif or similar. Guests in the cottage can benefit from the sociablity of the bed and breakfast and our local knowledge or they can keep themselves to themselves with just a 'bonjour' to a neighbour.
In the kitchen there are ample work surfaces made of granite and there is a gas cooker with five burners and a large oven.

There are sun loungers and a cushioned swing and there is ample space on the terrace for eating and relaxing. If you wish there is an electric barbecue available for your use on the terrace.
