Pichet” is a traditional mountain house built, as are
many in the region, partly into the hillside. It adjoins “La
Carrette”, the former farmhouse which we now also own,
and which is our separate accommodation during your stay. Over
the last 14 years we have lovingly restored Le Pichet to
retain as much as the original stonework as possible (such as
the “pas d’oiseaux” originally built for thatching purposes;
in replacing the roof, we have kept and used wherever possible
the beams of the old structure.) Tastefully furnished,
and now hung with paintings by Rodney and embroideries by
Eleri, we are proud to welcome you into this part of our home.
The house faces directly west, and benefits from superb light,
particularly in the dining room and upstairs lounge during the
afternoons and evenings. The actual living space covers 120 m2
and comprises, on the ground floor which is tiled throughout:
A large dining-room / living
area with oak table and seating for 6; wood
burning stove, bibliotheque and sofa.
Kitchen, with oven, microwave, fridge-freezer, washing
You also have a slow cooker, as well as
a fondue and raclette; the region boasts an incredible
number of local cheeses!
Bathroom, with wc, basin and bath (with shower attachment).
From the dining room which contains a television, a
beautiful oak stairway leads you to the first floor,
Spacious, airy, high-ceilinged lounge, containing sofa,

single beds), and a well stocked bookcase (both
