La Vieille Echoppe “The Old Shop” Faye La Vineuse
Taking its name from the former village shop, we have designed our Bijou French Retreat to provide versatility for guests to enjoy a quiet, private, beautifully interior designed retreat. It accommodates up to four guests with beautiful aspects and enjoying stunning Church views. We feel that our Bijou French Retreat ideally suits two guests situated in the perfect Loire Region and just 5 km from the historic town of Richelieu. Our main house sits within the gardens opposite your retreat, but all the stunning gardens are for you and your guests to enjoy privately, as we never holiday while we have guests staying.
