The cottage is situated between the two chateaux on the private Vergnette estate and was originally the home of the estate manager. It had been derelict for some years before we bought it along with our own house in 2000 and following major interior renovations and an extension to include a ground floor ensuite master bedroom, it was first opened as a holiday let in 2001. The whole building was re-wired and re-plumbed and a back covered porch was added in 2002. The business was closed at the end of the 2013 season whilst we reviewed our options but after two years we decided to continue so we re-opened in 2016. After so many years of business we undertook another major interior renovation of the kitchen, dining and living areas after the 2016 season and the roof was replaced in May 2017, the results can now be seen on the "Video Tours" and “Images” pages of this web site.
