    Additional amenities & feature info
    The modern kitchen has been created from a converted stable/byre retaining many of the original features. There are huge oak beams on the ceiling. There is a round dining table with six chairs. The old hay rack and livestock chains are retained as features.

    The timbered bedrooms retain the old beams and are tiled throughout. The main bathroom has basic facilities including a shower attachment.

    At the far end of the building is a third bedroom or 'annexe' with an en suite bathroom/toilet in the form of a small converted grenier with a separate entrance, with a double bed and en suite bathroom. This is available for an additional charge (please enquire). It is very quaint and comfortable and provides accommodation for two further people (double bed) at a very low additiona...

We had a most enjoyable 9 day stay at La Moussette in July 2013. The accommodation was very comfortable and lacked nothing. The location was stunning in lovely rural countryside just outside of the pleasant village of Breil. Sally and Adrian were very welcoming and friendly and gave us access to all their land to sit in and explore. Thanks... more

When you arrive you get a free box of wonderful free range eggs and a bottle of milk. Its not difficult to spot where the eggs come from as the... more

4 of 5 stars Reviewed 29 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We spent four nights at La Mousette and found the building comfortable and clean, Adrian and Sally Fox the owners were very welcoming and helpful. Highlights included the cycle paths around the area and swimming/canoing in the lake adjacent to the property. The house stands on tranquil grounds but there are local amenities nearby. Car essential. more
