our house is just across the garden..... so we are on hand for anything you might need or need to know. be assured that if you want to be left in peace to yourselves you will be. the courtyard is for your private use and has garden furniture and is a suntrap or somewhere shady to enjoy a snooze or a good book!
Vztahy s hosty
your garden is fenced off from ours. we just need acces as it's a shared drive. you also have private use of a courtyard. there are two tables and seating areas with two 'relaxer/ stargazing' chairs and two sunloungers. in season you are welcome to take fruits (grapes, figs and apples) and vegetables ( tomatoes, lettuces, french beans, corn on the cob, garlic, and whatever we're growing) we can't call them organic but they are grown only with sun, water and organic feed! there's a swing ball, plastic skittles, toddlers paddling pool and sandpit ( these will only be 'on request') one well behaved dog would be welcome but a supplement will be charged.
Další věci, které stojí za zmínku
we have french terrestrial tv and english (website hidden). a dvd player and a bose radio/cd. there is also a dishwasher.
please note that the maximum number of guests is 4.
we retired to the idyll that is le village neuf a couple of years ago. husband and best friend clive was in mechanical engineering, i worked in costume in television.
we chose a rural location for the peace, calm and closeness to nature.
it does not disappoint!
we consider ourselves to be reasonably educated liberal 'types' with a love of music (eclectic tastes) art, nature and humour.
my life motto, if i have to choose, is: all things must pass
clive's, without asking and this may change........ is there any beer in the fridge!
