We converted Le Juchoir from a stone barn tucked between other houses into a proper home. It's small but surprisingly spacious. It has a bedroom and a shower room on the ground floor, and a lovely light living room / kitchen upstairs, with one entire wall of oak-framed windows, opening onto a terrace with a view of the hills. It is a clean, bright, friendly house, with a lot of style, where you can really enjoy the clear light and breath the clean air of this unspoilt French hill village.
Like most places, other than the private homes of smokers, there is a strict no-smoking rule at the house.
Though we have nothing in principle against pets, there is no escaping the fact that many of them do create a cleaning issue. We cannot risk guests arriving at the house to find it anything less than spotlessly clean and fragrant. Do ask and we will be as accommodating as possible, but please note that there will be a supplementary charge for cleaning after your stay.
Please remember that the house is our own private home, and not a hotel run by some anonymous company, so please treat it accordingly.

I guess I'm what you'd call a family man — been married for 31 years, with a daughter at university in London. I work as an independent media producer — mainly corporate videos and television documentaries ( My wife Ina, who is originally from Indonesia, is an independent cook, catering for private parties and the like ( We both work from home. Before returning to the UK in 1988 I lived in Singapore, Indonesia (yes, that's where Ina and I met), and Italy.
With Ina being a cook our life is completely dominated by everything foodie! Our holidays revolve around sampling the local cuisine. Places we have loved, in order of our culinary enjoyment: Italy, Istanbul, China, Australia, Spain, USA, Tunisia.
When we travel we always stay with friends, or in B&Bs, or we rent a self-catering property. We really don't like hotels! We particularly love B&Bs because of their informality and 'familiness'.
