From the garden you enter into a long galley kitchen dinner, which is well-equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, fridge with freezer compartment, induction hob and micro-wave. The staircase with its newly handmade oak handrail takes you to the first floor of Le Grenier with its renovated wooden architectural beams, vaulted ceilings and wooden floors.
Two renovated barn doors lead off the main area to two separate bedrooms: one with a king size bed (152 cm x 198 cm) and the other with two single beds (90x190).
In the main area itself there is a sofa and two club armchairs creating a small lounge area ideal for reading and watching TV. With reversible air conditioning/heating unit, this area stays cool in summer and also warm in the cooler months along with the use of storage heaters. There is also a central electric ceiling fan/light in bedroom 1 to help stay cool in summer and warm in winter. The air conditioning is powerful enough to cool the whole property.
Bearing in mind children's safety, the stair spindles have been installed according to safety regulations. There is also a safety stair gate available if required for younger children. There is free Wi-Fi in the Grenier gite and you can watch French television via TNT and UK TV via satellite.
To the right you enter a spacious bathroom with a large walk-in shower, washbasin, toilet, cupboards and heated towel rail.
"The Grenier was our dream location for this vacation to celebrate our 120 years"
We appreciate your hospitality, your friendship, your generosity, your humour, your spirit and it was a pleasure to share some wisdom from time to time during the discussions we had. We enjoyed the well-equipped house, the cleanliness, the garden, the pool, the apéros, the tranquility of nature, the sun, the cats, the birds... Ann, Bob & Bavo
