Nik & Amanda
Many people have described our home and area as a "little slice of England" in the middle of the French countryside. We quite like the reference. We are a typical "chambres d'hotes," offering furnished rooms in our own home to tourists. We also offer breakfast. Plus we can provide "tables d'hotes" with an advanced reservation. Historically this meant a share of home-cooked meals but has evolved to incorporate any set meal that is charged to guests. We pride ourselves on a hearty home-cooked menu with ingredients that are bought locally each day and prepared fresh in our domestic kitchen.
Nik and I are retired professionals and can be described as definite francophiles. We have visited many regions of France during a period of 20 years but when we arrived here 15 years ago it was a "coup de coeur." This is a lush, peaceful, unspolit region, very rural and historically a farming area. The local granite is renowned and much was used to re-build Paris after the Great Wars. The people here are receptive to strangers that make an effort. We have made life long French friends here. We are fairly quiet people now, although it was not always that way. We enjoy what we do. We like to keep the house up-dated because we feel that our paying guests deserve that much at the very least. We enjoy cooking. We enjoy relaxing in our garden - when we have the chance. But most of all we enjoy the people we meet. It is such an honour to hear all their stories. And we still like to explore France as much as is possible.
Saint Germain Beaupre is a typical sleepy and unspolit french village. Much of the commerce here has disappeared with the exit of young people to the cities in search of work - as is common throughout Europe. There remains a bar, a post-office and a few smaller self-employed enterprises. The architecture here has been influenced by the Middle-East. The church spire is quite unique. Life is slow, simple and charming. Our neighbours are extremely hospitable and equally as charming as the village itself. We are close to open countryside, providing many walks for the enthusiasts. The area is also a haven for birds and wildlife. The history of the neighbourhood is very revealing as we are situated geographically on the cusp of Vichy France and occupied France. For those interested, Oradour sur Glane is worthy of a visit. Saint Germain Beaupre has invested money into improvements and now has a Salles de Fetes that hosts community events. There is also a small play area for the younger children. Please check out our geographical location on the many search engines now available as we are situated roadside but with a very private and peaceful south facing garden at the rear.
