Facilities

GARDENS & GROUNDS 

The extensive gardens are a feature of La Rose des Vents, with sunny patios and shady corners, and the cottages are located on opposite sides of the gardens, offering complete privacy and tranquility within the 2.5 acres of secure gated grounds.

Relax by the 11 x 5.5 metre heated swimming pool  (28 degrees minimum between April - beginning of October) which is sited within the orchard with views over the vineyards.  The orchard is accessed via locked monumental iron gates and the pool is alarmed to ensure the safety of little ones.

There is  a large grassed area for ball games, and badminton, swing ball and boules are available on site.  Bring your own tennis racquet, as guests have access to the tennis courts in the commune, free of charge.

Undercover parking keeps the cars cool in summer

....and guests are invited to enjoy the herbs, apples, pears, plums, damsons, cherries, apricots and figs growing in the gardens and orchard.
