La Petite Maison is a beautiful rural two double bedroomed cottage, renovated to a high standard. Situated within a 200 year old farm, (now non working) and located in the region Pays de la Loire.
We allow dogs on request - one small to medium (labrador) sized dog who must be well socialised with other dogs as we have one of our own.
Smoking is not permitted in the cottage but is permitted in the gardens and grounds.
Paul and I both had busy careers in London, too much stress and unhealthy lifestyles. We would longingly watch all those TV programs about changing your life, moving to the country, renovating a barn into a designer palace - if only that could be us! In 2007, just as my son left home for University I found myself redundant and always one to look on the bright side decided to have some 'me' time. That quickly turned into 'seize the day' mentality so Paul quit his job, we put our furniture in storage, packed our Clio to the roof and set off for France with a map and a gite booked for 7 weeks. Seven years later we are still here and loving the french life! Now we can speak reasonable french, Paul is a member of our village council and we teach English to the children in the school once a week although to be honest I think we learn more French from them than they learn English! We have a lovely laid back dog called Barnabé and one big barn still to renovate!
