French windows open out to a patio for eating in the sunshine. Guests are free to make themselves at home in the 1.5 acre landscaped gardens with access to a BBQ. Plenty of parking. Lots of seats scattered around; a goldfish pond ; fruit trees to be picked in season---and the sort of lane "outside" where one looks up if a car passes.
Interaction with guests
We ran our own very successful boutique hotel in Wales for 17 years and enjoy hosting guests. We are happy to cater for evening meals on request and know all the best places for activities and dining out.
Other things to note
There is a separate laundry building with washing-machine/ dryer available. Bed -linen and towels are provided----but bring your own beach towels please. Free wifi.
A well-behaved dog is permitted. No smoking inside the apartment.
We are situated in a rural area and hope that our guests will appreciate the tranquillity of it.
After 17 years owning/cooking in a boutique hotel in Wales, we semi-retired to this area as we loved wine/food and tranquillity....plus the challenge of life in a different country--though I was born in Vienna! We love classical music/ books/ gardening. We have visited several "exotic" parts of the world but India has remained our favourite, as a total contrast to our everyday life. We enjoyed helping guests in Wales to get the most out of their visits and have done the same thing in France previously with chambre d'hotes guests, especially when asked to provide dinners for them.
