Certaines valeurs simples impriment ici le quotidien, comme l’authenticité et la générosité
Our family's origins are many, as are our sources of inspiration. We come from here and, above all, elsewhere. So it's only natural that our home should be adorned with pieces that we've found both here and elsewhere. Sometimes they've simply been given a patina, like some of the tables we've found locally, or they've been transformed, like a piece of woodwork found in the attic that's now the masterpiece of a bookcase. They are also sometimes used for other purposes, like these wooden chairs that have been turned into bedside tables.They all have a story to tell, and each has a reason for being.
We like the idea that the house lives on whether we're here or not. Its doors are open to travellers in the hope that they will find comfort and inspiration. We wanted it to be serene, and we're delighted with it every time we return.
In short, where taking the time to live makes perfect sense.
It's not surprising, then, that the human touch and the 'real thing' are reflected in the craftsmanship and designer pieces that adorn the premises. The house would not have been complete without the precious hands of local artisans contributing to its rebirth.
After the yew hedges, box patches, topiary trees and numerous rosebushes, the garden is notable for the abundance of herbaceous perennials growing freely along the paths in a style reminiscent of English gardens.
We welcome plants that cover the soil to protect it and reduce the need for weeding. Depending on the type, the cuttings are composted to strengthen the soil or chipped to mulch flower beds and certain paths, providing a natural recycling process.
