Welcome to Maison Bois Fleurie, a beautiful early 19 th century house with its own chapel. At one time this 2 hectare site was used as a convent.

We offer Chambre d’Hote (Bed & Breakfast) and 2 self catering cottages, Fleurie and Studio. There is also a 5×10 metre swimming pool available for all our guests.

Surrounded by some of France’s most picturesque scenery with a wealth of interesting things to see and do for all ages. Maison Bois Fleurie makes for an enchanting base from which to explore this region of France. For a long break or if you are just stopping off on your journey you’ll find a warm reception and a cosy room to relax and recharge.

The pool has a platform of 1.2 metre depth and then slopes from all directions to give a maximum depth of 1.85 metre, thus catering for all requirements. The pool is alarmed to conform to French safety standards.


The evening commences with an aperitif using local specialities, served with homemade canapés. The meal consists of 4 courses, using organically home-grown and fresh produce, accompanied by unlimited quantities of local wine and finishing with coffee. Table settings of bone china and linen napkins.

We can cater for any dietary needs and are happy to discuss these with you beforehand.
