Slow down – you will turn right here (if you come to the church, you’ve gone too far). Follow the road down a hill, past a pond on the right-hand side at the bottom, then up a hill. Continue straight on past La Guerhandais on your left and road going uphill to your right, and on for another few hundred yards, until you see a house on your left abutting the road. Turn left immediately after this house. You are now at ‘La Pruneraie’. Follow the road round to the end, and you will see a house with a conservatory on your left. Turn left into the driveway after this house – you have arrived.
