It is our holiday home, and we love it for its authenticity, tranquillity and wealth of things the area offers. The house was originally built for a forest workers, it is situated in the village which adjoins the Forêt Domaniale de Bellême, the large forestry massive.
The house has undergone many changes over the years, and since we bought it, we ensure that we retain its character whilst we updated it with modern features. We hope that you’ll appreciate the ‘home from home’ feel we created here over the years. Given the house is not lived in during most of the time, there are odd cobwebs and some dust from wooden beams can be found. We always ensure we thoroughly clean the house before we leave, but I have learnt that the dust settles in even no one lives in the house. If you don't like these, than you may not like the house. However, the house offers all modern conveniences, including broadband.
One bedroom is located on the ground floor (I will add the photo in April 14), partitioning from the second lounge, leading to the garden. There is a small double bed. The second bedroom is located on the first floor, the room is small, with a large single bed and has an extra mattress. The room is very well insulated and is ideal for relaxing.
The lounge offers a dining room and a sofa-bed and a chair in front of the wood burner. Please speak with us at the time of booking about the fire burning.
The guests will access all the rooms in the house. The owners don’t live in the house.
We will not be present during your stay. You can interact with us over emails.
You will be responsible for own entertainment. We have friends who are always happy to assist you with further advice.
The photos should give you an overview of the house and a range of activities available locally. We are never short of ideas during our stay there. You will find leaflets and books on the coffee table in the main room.
As it is our holiday home, please speak to me before booking as I would like to get to know you better.
The house has no smoking / no pets policy.
There is a fire place - if you use it, we will ask you to clean it and leave the way your find it. The logs can be found in the outbuilding opposite (not locked).
Bed linen, kitchen towels are NOT provided simply because we are not there to change them.
You are welcome to use pots/plates/glasses but we will ask you to leave them clean after use.
