Gite : Les Granges

Les Granges is a lovely old Provence-style farmhouse, newly renovated, and south-facing to soak up the sun, though its thick walls and wooden shutters provide a cool haven when things get hot outside.
Although further renovation is planned, it can now accommodate a maximum of seven people.

The house comprises:

  • large square lounge with imposing fireplace and woodburning stove. The sofa-bed converts conveniently into a full double bed.

  • generous dining kitchen with modern facilities plus traditional iron-and-brass woodburning range for winter cooking.
    No French country kitchen is complete without its Godin woodburning range. In winter it's the warm heart of the house.
    In summer, well - it still looks nice!

  • laundry/utility with double sink and washing machine.

  • large twin-bedded room (with optional third bed). It has a fireplace with woodburning stove and built-in storage.

  • twin-bedded room, part wood-panelled, with electric heating.

  • new bathroom with wc and handbasin.

  • new shower room with wc and handbasin.

  • new IT room shared with the proprietors. Internet access via WiFi is freely available in the gite.

The four principal rooms all enjoy a spectacular view to the south.

Please note the house is strictly non-smoking at all times.


You'll find, as well as the view, a dining table, portable grill/hob and gas barbeque for summertime cooking and eating, a small level garden area and a side courtyard devoted to observing.

From this area we have seen wild boar, deer, loirs, salamanders and scores of tiny lizards from the garden as well as pine marten and red squirrel in the forests.

New at Les Granges:

We have recently acquired some slightly elevated land behind the house. If you feel like a change from the solitude of the southern view, you can feel part of Etoile from here!
