Inside la Nique

La Nique is a venerable old house which appears in the Napoleonic maps, the oldest parts of which are believed to be 400 years old. It has been restored to maintain the old oak beams and, in parts, the wattle and daub walls (suitably treated!), and has a great deal of character. It has, though, been restored and modernised to the highest standard, and is now both a comfortable and charming house in which to spend a holiday.

The accommodation comprises a fully equipped kitchen (electric cooker, gas hob, fridge, dish washer, full range of cooking equipment including a microwave oven) living area with a large and glorious cast iron traditional wood stove, which gives off incredible heat, and a dining area with a large pine table, benches and traditional chairs

There are four good sized fully furnished bedrooms each with a double bed, wardrobes, dressing tables, bedside tables and lights, etc, and in addition two of the bedrooms each has a set of bunks. Thus, depending on the precise sleeping arrangements, up to 12 people can be accommodated – certainly two families can stay at the house comfortably. There is also a baby’s cot.

Pillows, duvets and blankets are provided (as are tea towels and swimming towels), and there is a sheet service provided by our cleaner for a fee (see booking form) - though if you prefer you can bring your own bed linen and towels. There is a bathroom with bath, shower, basin, loo and bidet; and a shower room with shower, loo and basin. The washing machine is in the shower room.

In addition there is large carpeted hall area which provides space for younger children to play (as well as a trunk of toys). A cot, baby's chair that attaches to the table and potty are also supplied.
