The decoration of the walls and floor of the room, turquoise chamarr é de doré, matched perfectly with the original furniture. The bedding and bed linen are of a high quality. Beautiful view of the remarkable garden. Our day was voluptuous.

A stay in the heart of nature

We spent an UNFORGETTABLE day in the beautiful estate of La Massonnière ! We were first greeted by a concert of birdsong the likes of which I have not heard for a long time. Then the masters of this year, Pascaline and Emmanuel, opened the gates of the chapelto us. What a pleasure to be taken care of by suchcheerful, dedicated and so fond of their knowledge of the trees and flowers of their domain, and God knows if there are any! We stayed in the "barn ", luxuriously restored with the taste û t sûr and full of finesse of Pascaline who, in addition to beinga landscaper is an interiorcoordinator ! Multiple fenesgive the impression of camping in nature, but rest assured the comfort is maximum! And what a pleasure to take a bath very open while takingat the same time a bath of nature ... Finally, the gîte is verywell equipped, we did not lack anything. In short, a magical place that we highly recommend !
