Table de Hote available certain days. We have tried to create an environment where people can unwind and relax from their everyday stresses. We provide a peaceful location in beautiful surroundings and top quality, fully equipped, but unfussy accommodation.
Having listened to comments from previous guests(go here for testimonials), we think we have all the requirements you might need to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Just throw some clothes in a suitcase and come. Gites have washing machines, dishwashers, irons, hairdryers, CD players and French TV(with DVD players and DVDs to borrow). They are equipped with all you will need for a self-catering holiday. We provide all bed linen and towels too. If you get fed up going to the local markets and cooking for yourselves, we also offer a Table de Hote (Bookings are required - 25 euros each, children under 10yrs 10.50euros, for 4 courses, prices are inclusive of wine, beer or soft drinks.)
All the accommodation available has its own space and privacy, it is laid out (see site plan page) in such a way that if you do not want to see others whilst you are here then, no problem. If you are feeling more sociable some days it is also possible to join in the generally convivial atmosphere provided by your hosts at the Table de Hote evenings on the terrace at La Source. Petanque (Boule), table tennis, and rounders tournements are also possible happenings! Although neither of us are very good, so you are bound to win! We also like to put any children to work whilst they are here, with grass cutting! Tim - one of the guests put to work
One of the views on the walk from Maison arc en ciel into the nearest village The gardens that surround the property at Maison Arc-en-ciel consist of many organic fruit and nut trees as well as established shrubs, it is possible to find many quiet and hidden corners in which to sit and take in the silence and the bird activity. We have lovely views across the valley in the direction of Villefranche de Lonchat and many woodland walks on the doorstep. It is possible to swim in the pools from May until the end of September, the main pool shelves very gently and is safe for all standards of swimmers and non-swimmers and is alarmed for childrens safety. Of course the hot tub is available most of the year!(for adults only)
Cath, Pinky and Sue This is us with our wonderful pooch, Pinky, who adopted us when we moved here in 2001 from Bristol. Sadly we lost het in 2015 but she had reached the grand age of 15+. We have another dog, Albi, who we rescued 9 years ago who is still lively and loves meeting other dogs, smaller than him! In our previous lives, which we don't think about often, we worked in the public sector in the UK so we understand stress! Having travelled and lived in other parts of the world we decided to take a chance and make our own haven of tranquility. We love it here, we think you will too.
