In this quiet and secret landscape, full of serenity, one spacious guest suite and 2 charming cottages are hidden away, each for 2/3 people with their private lounges and wood burners. A Petrof 1/4 grand piano also awaits you in the music room.
A little over half a mile away, within walking distance on one of the forested paths, you will find a restaurant, which was selected by food critics. The chef masterfully cooks traditional and local recipes such as pike perch in a butter-based sauce, chicken with crayfish, snails served in puff pastry with cream sauce, or steak in a shallots and red wine sauce…
Caroline also offers home-cooked evening meals inspired by Berry gastronomy and using local products, upon request and at an extra charge.
The 12 miles of marked paths in the domain’s forested grounds will take you by the stream called the Ris, the lake and the rowing boat docked there ready for you to take out, along the pond, the orchard, the kitchen garden, the wellsprings and the Gallo-Roman bridge. The estate is adjacent to one of 5 unique botanic paths of the Brenne park, a paradise for birds and bird watchers.
