The main house  (not available for under 10's)

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. In the spirit of late 19th century. It was once used as a bathhouse for its prestigious owners. Our ‘petite folie’ has been completely renovated and you are welcome to relax here, enjoy a bottle of cider or tea and coffee. A great place and right in the center of town.
