“a beautiful retreat”
a genuine retreat run by genuine caring people. If you would like to get away from it all and take in some beautiful French countryside this is the place to do it in an impeccable property.
“Beautiful home, in a fantastic setting, perfect holiday.”
We stayed at Chez Foucherie in Sept 2013 with our 14 month old son. The house is finished to a beautiful standard and is equipped with everything you could possibly think of. The master bedroom was my favourite, lying in the bath with a glass of local red made my holiday! All the rooms were very clean and the linen was an excellant standard The surrounding area is stunning and you can easily spend the day relaxing at the pool watching the rolling hills beyond or venture into the surrounding towns and villages and sample authentic french life. I can not recommend Chez Fourcherie highly enough, Rebecca and Chris responded quickly to our enquiry and had a good knowledge of the area. We will be returning next year.
