The main house 

The main house at 44 (B&B) dates to 1830 and is Directoire Style offering 5 bedrooms and one studio all with ensuite bathrooms. A stay here gives you the opportunity to meet other guests from around the world and enjoy breakfast around a wonderful old wooden table or in the garden.   Read a book in our comfortable salon with lots of books or enjoy the fireplace during winter months.  

In the garden you will find La Petite Folie (a curious and beautifully sculpted 'kiosk') dating back to 1871. It was once used as a bathhouse for its prestigious owners and has been completely renovated and guests staying at the b&b.
