Les Echaloux is a beautiful country house on the outskirts of the small village Bayet, by the river Sioule. The main house was built around 1900 as a farm and later converted into a mansion. Since the summer of 2002, it opened as a bed and breakfast (B & B). Abundantly covered in wisteria and a view over the fields and with, among other things, a private pool Les Echaloux is the ultimate combination of romance and comfort. There are five rooms, each with its own distinctive character and ambiance. For example you can stay in the Oriental room, lay in a four-poster bed looking up at a sky (ceiling) covered in little lights, or in the romantic room of the Rose with a view of the sunflower fields. Whichever room you choose; any interior exudes romance and creativity.
The garden is on the south side of the house and is surrounded, on one side, by a typical French barn and on the other side by the 'pigeonnier'. This cute little building with a tower, where people used to keep doves, has been converted into a comfortable
4-room gîte (apartment).
And then there is the possibility of camping in the walled orchard between the nut-and the fruit trees. It is a small site that offers ample space for lovers of peace and beauty, but also where you can participate in various activities in the area, such as hiking, water skiing and canoeing. Furthermore you can play Ping-Pong, shuffleboard, darts and pool in our big barn, situated next to the swimming pool.
Besides outer beauty, do not forget your appetite, you may wish to sit down at our table under the large chestnut tree and let your everyday worries slide off, while sipping a glass of wine.
Are you on your way to the South? Les Echaloux is 14km from the A71 and is therefore a great place to start your holiday.
