Terraces and garden

Le Couvent's large and very private garden is tiered in three levels. The back of the house is built into the land so that the back door upstairs, originally the entrance to the school room, leads out into a higher level of the garden which overlooks the village. The higher woodland part of the garden leads to a natural 'source' where water trickles through the rocks into a small man-made pool (for flora and fauna, not people!).

Summer meals can be enjoyed outside on the front terrace, the terrace under the plum tree or under the veranda of the lower garden. There is a hammock and a variety of garden furniture to relax in.
