Welcome to Grange Noyer Farmhouse. Dating back to Napoleonic times, this Creusoise Farmhouse stood unoccupied for more than 18 years, apart from the chickens in the old barn! Since 2007, Grange Noyer Farmhouse has lovingly undergone a complete renovation project incorporating a spacious self-catering home.
