About our home

Our farm was built in 1778 and has been lovingly restored in 2002. Surrounded by fields and small woods, the house overlooks a good size lake teaming with fish and wildlife. The groundfloor is open plan with a well equipped US kitchen. The tiled floors, beams and country furnishings create a cosy relaxed atmosphere. With 2 sitting rooms each with TV, DVD and videos, the house is perfect for a large family. One of the bedrooms with ensuite is on the ground floor. The other 3 are doubles, one ensuite, the others 2 share a large bath/shower room with WC. The 10 acres include lawns, fields and forest. To keep you busy we offer a large heated pool, separate jaccuzy, ping pong, boules and badmington. Depending on the season you'll share the vegetables, fruit and eggs we produce. A gardener, pool man and weekly clean is included. There is an English speaking tenant in the apartment attached to the farm. They are discreet but would be perfect to answer any question you may have. They will feed our cats and hens.
