” These are my comments after spending 17 days in the Ermitage in July 2023:

Some background here, I am a dual French-American citizen living in the US with some family from all around the world (Australia and South Africa). Our gathering happens once every 3 years and I want the experience to be memorable. Basically, I want the best that France has to offer!
The house was occupied by 3 generations with 12 to 18 people at the time. We used 7 of the available bedrooms and the studio where the teenagers slept (4 of them).
The feeling about the accommodations was:“a state of awe”.

The following are my comments that the cottage’s website cannot illustrate properly:
The silence.
We cannot hear any cars’ noise from the house but we can see some cars’ headlights at night 1.5 miles away. How relaxing to hear the delicate sound of nature. From time to time, you can hear a horse clopping by the cottage (there is an active stable nearby). For those who love nature, the environment is totally enchanting.

The bedding.
The firmness of a bed or for that matter, the lack of it, has already ruined my back and by extension my vacation; so when I made the reservation 6 months ago, I requested a wood plank to be inserted between the bedspring and the mattress. Guess what happened! Our hosts fulfilled my request free of charge (it is not easy to move a 4 sqm piece of wood in an old house). I felt bad as the mattress where the most comfortable I have ever tried and it appeared that the plank was totally unnecessary. The bed linen matched the Ermitage philosophy, light and comfortable. Who wants to sleep on some linen gauze sheets? I am telling you; the quality of anything inside this house are insane and the accommodation is so well thought out that you will question your own home… Total madness!!!

The kitchen.
It is not a kitchen, it is a “super” kitchen (2 refrigerators, 2 dishwashers, and too many utensils to name including a beloved beer tap machine). I asked every user what else could be added and aside from an arguable “ice cream maker” no one could fault it. So if you like cooking, this is your heaven!…

I just had an incredible experience at the Ermitage as that house became a gift that could not stop giving (I did not mention the beach volley / soccer field and the boules pitch that were added after I made the reservation). You want to play at night? Guess what, they did install some lights!!!! The risk you take vacationing there is that you feel so comfortable you may not be willing to leave and visit the gorgeous countryside.

A special mention to our hosts, Catherine and Agathe, who were adamant to make our stay as wonderful as possible (any requests were fulfilled in no time and I had some crazy ones!!!).
I have to reckon the amount of work that they put into that cottage renovation. The interior decoration is thoughtful and well done. I know I have high standards but I may have met my competition! What a pleasure….

Last but not least, the little shop that they have curated contains some gems not to avoid (try the Peita anchovies to die for!).
To those guests that will enjoy this accommodation, hats off and congratulation.
To Catherine and Agathe: BRAVO…. c’etait Formidable…….”

We couldn’t have been more delighted with our stay at Agate’s beautiful cottage. It’s located in picturesque countryside, yet close enough to the local town and easily accessible to the beach.

The house and the grounds are stunning. The amenities are incredible (the kitchen is the best-equipped I’ve ever used): petanque court, large swimming pool and jacuzzi, badminton, ping pong (the kids were never bored).

The house itself is tastefully decorated, without feeling overly staged. The bedrooms and bathrooms are both elegant and extremely comfortable. The main living areas, including the very spacious kitchen/dining room, are absolutely gorgeous and very welcoming. The outdoor barbecues and kitchen made our evening meals an absolute pleasure.

Both Agate and François were very charming, friendly, and informative. We loved their shop on the side of the house – full of amazing local products, wines, and delightful curiosities.

Our family and fellow travelers couldn’t have been happier and will cherish our stay forever.
