Le Domaine des Etangs extends over 1,000 hectares of preserved nature. Set here and there between two ponds, camouflaged in the hollow of a grove, open on a meadow that runs on the horizon, the cottages are six in number. Designed to accommodate the most demanding of families, furnished with taste and warmth, they are perfect for relaxing, daydreaming and letting go. The 6 houses have been conceived as true havens of peace, cosy nests imagined to meet with family or friends in an intimate setting. Functional and luxurious, they offer privileged access to all the services of the estate: a 2,500 sqm vegetable garden, a collection of contemporary artworks, the two restaurants, the indoor and outdoor swimming pools with thermal pathways, the children’s play area and, of course, the Moulin des Etangs, a wellness centre offering treatments for young and old alike.
With a surface area of 106 to 393 sqm, all cottages share a common point: total independence combined with tailor-made services. Large bay windows, stone walls, exposed beams, huge fireplaces, magnificent furniture and patinated wood, these are the elements that make up the 6 houses on the estate. Offering a capacity of reception from two to ten guests, they will meet the requirements of the most numerous families.
