And when relaxing, lie on the sun terrace next to the fabulous salt water swimming pool and catch the perfume on the breeze from the beautiful garden.
The outside dining corner has a table for 18 for everyone to sit down and eat together, either on a self catering basis or catered option. It can double up as a meeting area too.

We can put your group in touch with local chefs who will provide catering if required – please do ask.

During downtime there are many interesting places to visit in this Bastide region of France, with traditional towns and villages full of busy markets, restaurants and shops.
