There are a variety of options of things to see and do, both on the farm and out and about locally.

Swimming pool

The swimming pool is normally open from May to September to resident holiday makers & until the end of October if we have demand.

The pool measures 10m x 5m with Roman end steps, that are ideal for the youngest of children to paddle from. In the shallows it is one metre deep, which is enough for a 5 year old to touch the bottom. It drops down to two meters in the deep end for adults to enjoy diving in to. The water is heated to 24° so it can be used all the season. There is underwater lighting for the pleasures of night swimming.

The area around the pool is paved, grassed, and there is a wooden terrace area. There are sun loungers, chairs & tables for relaxing and soaking up the sun. The playpen is kept in this area too so that the parents of toddlers can relax. The whole pool area is enclosed with wooden fencing, complying with the new french pool legislation.

Helping the farmer
Guests are welcome to help on the farm, feeding chickens, ducks, pigs, rabbits, goats, sheep & cows. Helping at lambing times, milking the goats, collecting eggs or haymaking - See our photo gallery.
We have a wide range of animals, ideal entertainment for the whole family. The youngest children enjoy opening up the hatch & retrieving a newly laid egg, then eating it. Our chickens are also kept for meat, so to are the rabbits, ducks, pigs & sheep. The goats & cows double up as a milk supply for the pigs & the house. We keep all our animals as free range as practically possible & try to be as organic as we can.

Ponies and trap on the farm
Pony & trap rides
Our pony & trap and other horses can give the whole family an outing to the next village to discover some of the history and roman remains of the region.

Children's Play Area
Swings, slide, sand pit, buckets & spades, seesaw for tiddlers and a seesaw for adults - it's all here to play with.

Boules Court & Table Tennis
So you can feel you are on holiday in France and to comply with french tradition, we have a basic boules court complete with boules! GOOD LUCK.

Also as a summer holiday activity, we have a table tennis table for you to use.

Bike Hire & Cycle routes
For those of you wanting to get further a field, we have bikes to hire of all sizes (child seats too); ideal for the whole family's entertainment, saving the bother of bringing your own. We can give you a map & recommend local roads to take. Quiet well signposted country lanes, travelled by a few tractors & cars, provide a change from city cycling.

Lazy Summer EveningsDining al fresco at the farm

During the high season, twice a week we hold social evenings and barbecues alternated with "Dish of the Day". All holiday makers have the chance of eating & drinking together, recapping on their visits, experiences and swapping ideas. The children put on entertainment and challenge the adults to a game of rounders - just played before a late night swim.
