Surrounded By Forest

The fifteenth-century manor house, farmhouse and grounds, surrounded by forest, have had new life breathed into them thanks to the passionate determination of Luc and Caroline Fontaine. Opposite the owners’ house on the other side of a large courtyard lawn, some self-contained guest accommodation, two gites and a suite, has been created in some outbuildings.

The fifteenth-century manor house

The fifteenth-century manor house, farmhouse and grounds, surrounded by forest, have had new life breathed into them thanks to the passionate determination of Luc and Caroline Fontaine. Opposite the owners’ house on the other side of a large courtyard lawn, some self-contained guest accommodation, two gites and a suite, has been created in some outbuildings. The self-contained “Le Fruitier” suite oozes charm through its round windows, each of which enjoys a unique view of the estate. The interior is very cosy with its low ceilings, it flagstone floors and its lounge with a wood-burning stove. Upstairs, a bedroom with a double bed covered with a billowy quilt is accompanied by a pretty bathroom. Between the farmhouse and the manor house, the countryside opens up onto the river and the lake down the hill, where guests can fish, row and even swim. In the nearby woods, Caroline has set up several waymarked trails which offer opportunities for delightful nature discovery walks. The trails can also be followed on bicycles or electric (silent) scooters, available on request from Luc. Sumptuous breakfasts are served in the bread oven room. You can help yourself to delicious fresh local produce laid out of you on the large dining table, accompanied by pretty crockery and candlesticks. “Le Ris de Feu’’ is a little world created by Luc and Caroline that they would be delighted to share with you!
