Un endroit magique en pleine nature

  • 5 of 5

Qu'il fasse beau et chaud ou qu'il pleuve, cette maison est vraiment très agréable. L'immense terrasse qui entoure l'étage est très appréciable : on peut s'y installer d'un côté ou de l'autre de la maison selon l'heure de la journée, l'ensoleillement ou le vent. Par grosse chaleur, les chambres restent fraîches.

La pièce à vivre est très lumineuse et fonctionnelle.

Matin et soir, parfois en cours de journée, nous avons observé, à notre plus grand plaisir, une famille de chevreuils aux abords de la prairie qui

jouxte la maison.

Nous gardons de très bons souvenirs du lieu, de la maison et de ses propriétaires, que nous remercions très chaleureusement.

De très très bonnes vacances.

Fantastique, vrai et sincère.

  • 5 of 5

Couple de cadres venant d'une grande ville, nous avons passé la semaine que nous recherchions avec nos 2 enfants, chez Bruno Chevigny. La maison est un enchantement. Ils ont eu la délicatesse de tout rendre fonctionnel dans cette maison atypique, construite par Bruno en paille et en bois. Le lieu est un pays de Cocagne dans une campagne qui ne triche pas. Loin des attrapes bobos la maison est authentique et tout le matériel, les lits et les draps sont neufs. Bref, c'est la propreté dans une campagne qu'on aime. En plus les enfants ont pu profiter du centre équestre juste à côté. Nous avons vu passer des biches dans le jardin, trempé nos pieds dans la rivière, mangé des bons produits du Périgord... Que dire de plus ? Ah si : une belle rencontre avec Bruno et isabelle !

Owner's Response: Merci à vous Sébastien et Charlotte et vos gentilles filles Clara et Manon, nous avons été récompensés par votre passage, par votre gentillesse et surtout parce que vous avez tellement été "sensible" à l'âme de notre lieu de vie créé de notre imagination et de nos rêves et sommes touchés que cela vous ai convenu si bien à part entière
