Your Accommodation

You will be staying "chez nous" in a tastefully renovated, 370 year old Gascon farmhouse set in over two acres of ground. Originally the presbytery for the adjacent, 12thC ruined church of Saint Juin, the property is a listed building with some unusual and attractive architectural features.
