“Super spot to relax.”
Reviewed 21 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Le petite Maison is a very cute and well set up stone cottage. Everything that you need to while away a comfortable week. Tons of places nearby worth visiting from Chateaux's, old ruins, lively market villages and great walks. Ours host Adrien took us for a hike through the local forest which was very interesting. Plenty of wild life to be seen, great views. Very peaceful. No TV which was fantastic because there was always better things to do.

“Wonderful”

We spent a wonderful week here and would certainly recommend it to anyone looking for a truly quiet place in the heart of the countryside; the only thing you hear are the sounds of nature.The owners were helpful and very discreet, the house is very well equipped and the view from the back stunning. Our favourite time was enjoying the early evening sun and watching it set laying on the sun chairs, drinking a cool aperitif. The only little inconvenience was that you had to go to the owner's place, which is adjacent, to get the Internet. We loved the house and will definitely come back again!

Myself and a friend stayed at 'Le petit Maison' in August. Lovely, typically French, rustic cottage. We wanted somewhere in the country with not much else around us, and that's what we got! Adrian and Marion were lovely and welcoming (with wine and beer! Fab!), but not intrusive. Local town was great, providing everything we needed. Car hire a must! Definitely recommend :)

“Atmospheric cottage”

We stayed for 6 nights with our 7 month-old baby. The house owned by Adrien and Marian who live in the next door house. They are extremely helpful and friendly and provided a new BBQ for us, and sourced a cot for the baby. The house is rustic and spacious and the location very rural surrounded by lovely countryside. The nearest shops are a 10 min drive away. The upstairs bedrooms have very low beams you need to bend under which adds to the quirkiness. Having a BBQ on the terrace is lovely. Wifi is available in (or just outside) Adrien and Marian's house. It's a very peaceful place to stay.

Whát a beautiful and cozy house and its surroundings are in one word 'superbe'.
In the summer of 2013 I spend a fantasic week in La petite maison.
I’ve never seen clearer starry nights, never experienced a quiet more intense and smelled such pleasant aromas.
I can recommend a holiday in La petite maison to everyone.

“We keep coming back!”
Reviewed 16 January 2014 for a stay in August 2013

La petite maison for us is a place of tranquility and space. The French countryside (la campagne) from the movies. small and friendly. The house offers a wonderful base for hikes in open fields or dense forests, visiting small towns, villages, not spectacular ánd not very touristy. Just right. Also just 'staying at home' with all the space in and around the house offers us a lot. Long culinary sessions with local wines and an unknown cognac that we scored on a day trip. Magnificent views from 'our own' terrace, (the deer appear in the twilight) with the most beautiful sunsets, the light and the skies are clear and vibrant, often spectacularly. In spring or summer só different. It continues to intrigue. We keep coming back.

“Peaceful and quiet enjoying French a country side”
Reviewed 15 January 2014 for a stay in July 2013

Beautiful renovated cosy farmer house , total freedom, with huge own terrace (without any border actually), far from any traffic noise. Perfect for walking or cycling straight away from the spot, but also for reading the thick book that was waiting for you already for years. Big kitchen for cooking and spending the night with friends or family, while a move to the seating around the fireplace is also attempting. The very helpful owners live in the neighbouring farmhouse, they are there for any help or advice when you need them, but only if you want to. Plenty of room for parking, bicycles, as much as you want in fact. Shops fairly nearby, nice little town 10 min drive for shopping, early coffee on terrace or dining at night. To be there every once in a while !
