About the home
Our accommodation has been designed to combine the comforts of home with the rustic charm of staying in a traditional French rural cottage and are all finished and equipped to the same high standard. We have retained attractive features such as exposed oak beams and stone walls, whilst finishing kitchens and shower rooms with contemporary fittings, ensuring all-important cleanliness and hygiene.
The cottages are all positioned within the enclosed monastery grounds, providing a safe and secure environment for children, and because of its exceptional position, afford magnificent views of the surrounding countryside.
