Guests have their own terrace area and choose places in the garden as they wish. The sitting room in the photos is small but cosy with splendid views over the terrace into the trees. Children are welcome and have loved it here but it requires a vigilance because there are stairs to access the garden, see photos, and please specify age of children in any queries. Don't hesitate to ask any questions before booking, my aim is have happy guests!
Interaction with Guests
I am often in the main house with my very silly and friendly dogs. However the appartments are completely independent and there is enough outdoor havens in the one acre grounds for peaceful privacy.
Your animals may be accepted - please ask first. I happily share my growing knowledge of the area and have a book that is growing based on visitors recommendations. Should we be organising something you will be more than welcome to join in.
The location in the middle of nature with the hills around and still the option to walk into the village when you want to. Either stay up with the deer and listen to the owls or stroll into the village and listen to the stories in the local, 200 year old historic café.
It is really good to have a car or a bike here - unless you wish to explore Camplong/Graissesac by foot and experiment with the 2 buses per day.
Other Things to Note
I speak fluent English and French and am happy to answer any questions you may have. I have a dog and two cats living here who are all very sociable.
I request that guests book in between from 17h or let me know by phone what their arrival preferences are since I like to be on site for arrival and welcome of course.
no smoking indoors - laughter permitted everywhere
