A colorful terrace

A garden where life is good

DR From the terrace, take the time to admire the garden, carefully maintained, and which merges with the surrounding nature. In addition to a lawn that has nothing to envy to English lawn, it is the olive tree, small in size, but large in charm, which particularly appeals to us. As a bonus? The Fermob garden furniture, mini format, so as not to forget the kids!

A relaxation area by the pool

A swimming pool to cool off

Julie Guillermet Clou of the visit: the swimming pool. Imagined in length, it allows you to cool off while doing a few strokes, surrounded by soothing vegetation. Once the swim is over, we go to the outdoor shower, a real treat!
