We look forward to welcoming guests to our home at La Salle to enjoy the calm and beautiful surroundings as much as we do. We hope to give an insight of daily life here, starting an organic farm, living life as part of a french rural community and enjoying the many possibilities of what this area offers. La Salle is far away from any roads and is surrounded by forest and meadows, and a canal.
We have a gite which has two spacious bedrooms, shared bathroom, downstairs loo and a living room with kitchenette. You can use the gardens pretty much as you like. Long shady table for meals outside too. There is no separate fenced off garden. We cannot take children under 7-ish because there are so many things that are 'not safe', from the gaps in the stair-case bannisters to the various waterways, to the occasional tractor driving by.
There are also 'chambre d'hotes' which are part of the main building. There are no cooking facilities here but you have breakfast, and can join in at the lunch or dinner table ( just let us know in the morning ).
'Voyage au bout de la nuit' - First floor facing the north courtyard. One double bedroom plus living room and a bathroom just outside.( this bathroom is only shared if you are a group of friends or family )
'Cafe au lait' - One double bedroom with ensuite bathroom. First Floor on the corner of the house with lovely high ceilings and nice views.
'Liaisons dangereuses' - One medium sized double bedroom in French style. This room has not got its own bathroom, so it is only ever used if cafe au lait is taken by the same family or friends who don't mind sharing.
Madame Bovary A double bedroom in the attic with beautiful beams and a lovely view Sharing the bathroom with 'Le temps perdu'
Le Temps Perdu Two single beds in a room on the corner of the house, lovely views ( great for owl watching ) Sharing bathroom with Madame Bovary ( not literally of course )
Le Petit Prince : A very large double bedroom facing the south courtyard with its own bathroom.
Le petit souris : A double bedroom with its own bathroom
All rooms have use of the gardens and forest. There is a large table for outdoor meals. We do not have televisions, but there are board games and cards and beautiful starry nights. (There is wifi but we need to be honest and say that the connection is not good in all parts of the house.) Please email for dates and prices
