Price includes: a double/twin en-suite room at our beautiful privately-owned farmhouse. We provide you with full continental breakfasts, a lunchtime buffet/sandwich service, three delicious evening meals with wine and one gourmet lunchtime meal at a Michelin-recommended restaurant.  On the occasional night that we do not cook a full evening meal, we offer a light supper with salads, cheeses, hams, soups etc. During the week the house kitchen is always full of bread, hams, cheeses, vegetarian patés etc. wines and beer for guests.  However, on the three days that we do not offer full evening meals, we encourage our guests to help support the local community by making the most of the charming, family-run restaurants in the many villages found on our walks. Throughout the whole week, guests are invited to make themselves at home and help themselves freely, and without cost, to the drinks and light food always available at the house. (Payment for these weeks in pounds sterling is possible.)
