Lovingly restored over the past four years, La Grande Merise is still a work in progress. It oozes simple rustic charm with cosy warmth and cleanliness. It is perfect for a family of 4 to 5 and will even take up to six. There is a bedroom on both floors. Both have shower rooms en-suite, a large double bedroom downstairs and a bedroom with two single beds upstairs. A steepish staircase leads you upstairs to a cosy living room with sofas, armchairs, Television/DVD, a great room to relax in and a sofa bed for that extra person. Wifi is available. Downstairs there is a farmhouse kitchen fully equipped with a wood burning stove perfect for those chilly evenings.
Linen provided. Heating and wood are included in the price.
