The B&B Le Macine was set up in a very old farmhouse that was inhabited from the second half of the 19th century to 2012 by farm workers. After renovation, it preserves the peace and productivity impregnated in the stones of its thick walls. The late 19th century furniture and silks in the rooms, original to the neighbouring manor house, help to recover the rhythms and smells of olden times in the simple naturalness of the day. The park is full of splendid trees that are centuries old; it has various peaceful, secluded corners. You can walk, read and take a break in the park treating the roe deer, squirrels and birds with respect.
