The day you discovered LA VARENNE, you saw only the trees, a funny wooden gateway roofed over with flat tiles, and a never-ending drive : it was like a green bower to refresh you, the day was so hot ! !

You hesitated by the vast outbuildings, and then you found the house : you entered a wide inner courtyard where the outdoor pool reminded you that you had run out of sun cream.

A warm welcome from your hostess awaited you. You quenched your thirst in the garden, in the shade of the great lime trees, and she helped you browse her stock of menus so that you could choose a restaurant for your evening dinner. She would then book this for you.
