About the home
Croquignolet is cute and cosy. It is ideally suited as a romantic getaway for a busy couple who need to have time to relax and unwind. In the evenings, the cottage lends itself to lounging in front of the fire in the winter, or eating out on the patio and catching the evening sun in the summer.
Being on the edge of the village, the centre of Seglien is only a pleasant 3 minute stroll away, ideal for wandering up to get your french baguette and croisant each morning.
The cottage kitchen is well equipped, providing everything needed for a comfortable stay.
