Swimming pool  Pool view from terrace

The pool is in full view of the covered back terrace that is draped with Virginia creeper - making it easy to watch the children and enjoying the shade if that is your pleasure. Cushioned lounge chairs are provided to make your sunbathing most relaxing! In the late evenings the underwater sidelights provide a warm glow for even more hours of enjoyment. It is located in the centre of a large rear garden (~5,000 M2). A small side garden has a herb garden and fruit trees plus laundry line for air drying towel and bathing suits.

"LaVigne" is our home 10 - 12 weeks of the year and we have equipped the house to a high standard - not only for you our guest as well as for our personal enjoyment. The kitchen has a dishwasher, microwave, ample fridge-freezer, cooker with both gas and electric hobs and a convection oven. We are always adding to the culinary tools to cater to all your cooking requirements.

There is a separate laundry room with washer and tumble dryer as well as store area for dried goods. There is a traditional French BBQ located at the rear of the house near the terrace; making alfresco dining in the summer even easier.

Games room  LaVigne BBQ area

A telephone is provided for your convenience - but we will not tell if you want complete privacy! One note - linen is provided but we do ask that your provide bath and sunbathing towels as it is most difficult to keep them to a high standard when sunbathing oil, creams etc. are being used. We do ask for your understanding of this one restriction.


The lounge is the off-season focus of the house. We have provided a wide array of books and a CD music system (please bring your favourites) for those lazy hours of reading a good book and listening to your favourite music. The French doors in the front of the house give this area a light and airy feeling; closing the glass doors to the large family room transforms it from an airy summer house to a snug winter cottage. The GODIN stove not only provides charm but also gives off hours of abundant heat. Some of our favourite times are the Autumn and post Christmas period with crisp mornings and sun filled days followed by evenings of wine enhanced dining followed by relaxing with a good book by the crackling stove.
