Chalets - 4/6 people

The chalets have been designed and constructed in a New Zealand style. They have been built with Douglas fir and Scotch pine. The roofs are the same colour as the local slate tiles, blending well with the environment. They also play shadow games with the leaves of the trees. The outside of the chalets are the colour of patinated wood, which corresponds also to the local style.

Each chalet is roomy with more than 50m² (540 sq .ft) floor space, as well as a veranda of 15m² (160 sq. ft.). One of the chalets is built for physically disabled people and complies with national regulations.

The interior is in the Périgord style, with the roofbeams close together and with an elevated pitch to the roof. The latter allows for a bedroom for 2 people on the mezzanine floor. Downstairs there is an open style kitchen, a living room with a comfortable seating arrangement, a separate toilet, a bathroom with shower and washbasin and another bedroom for 2 people. The veranda has a garden table and chairs, for your meals or drinks outside.

Each chalet has its own name (see site plan) and is equipped for 5 to 6 people.

Hérisson - 4 people

“L'Hérisson” (the hedgehog) is a chalet which is larger than the other rentals. It is situated on the edge of the Park, in a small clearing surrounded by greenery. Because of this it is very private. Easy access to the site's infrastructure. It is constructed of Douglas-fir and Sylvester Pine, with a slate-colored and a grey wooden exterior. All around there is a lawn, lots of trees, parking and a private entrance.

The surface is approximately 62 m² with a small enclosed terrace and another terrace that runs along the length of the house. On the small terrace there is a table with four chairs so as to be able to eat outdoors, on the large terrace there are two sunbeds and a parasol. Private barbecue with utensils.

The interior consists of a large living room with an open plan kitchen, a dining area and a living room with two sofas. The children's room has two single bunk beds, the master bedroom has a double bed which may be converted to two single beds. The rooms as well as the living room have mosquito nets at the windows. The bathroom is very spacious with a shower in a half bath, a sink and a toilet. Plenty of cupboards for storage. “L'Hérisson” is surrounded by nature, which is easy to enjoy thanks to the four large bay windows in the living room.

Biron - 4 people

"Biron" is the last addition and it is a chalet different from all the others. It is octagonal, with a lower floor, an upper floor, a living area of approximately 62 m² and is quietly located at the end of the park. The upper terrace is three meters above the ground, so you dominate everyone majestically.

On one side, a forest and, on the other side, a spacious upstairs terrace overlooking a field that offers a direct view of the castle Biron. Downstairs there is also a small terrace and a private parking space. The outside staircase leading upstairs is not very steep and there is a railing all around the upper terrace. A table and chairs will allow you to sit outside with a drink or enjoy a meal, all that overlooking the old farm of our retired neighbor and an impressive castle.

On the ground floor is a master bedroom with a double bed or two single beds, as well as a children's bedroom with two bunk beds. You also have a bathroom with toilet, shower and sink. The spiral staircase, with a gate for the little ones, openens up to the kitchen upstairs. In addition to a separate toilet, the upper floor includes a large room with a dining table and a comfortable seating area. Many windows and a sliding door that gives access to the terrace.

The cottage is for 4 people and is a whole lot more luxurious than the standard chalets.
