Domaine de Royères

 

 Domaine de Royères is a beautifully situated, small-scale farm vibrant with life. Being established in 2002 this is an ongoing project in which we strive to operate on the principles of ecologically sound management. We offer our guest the opportunity to participate in, learn from and savour French rural life.

Primarily we are a small-scale farmholding with a bull and 30 red/brown Limousine cows and calves. In the winter calves are born in the authentic cattle shed.

The farm is principally arranged around a central courtyard. Aside from the Main House and professional buildings, two 17th Century buildings border on the courtyard. In the near future these will be renovated and turned into gîtes. A third holiday home, called Salle de Traîte, is situated in the former milking stable. The latter will be available for hire from the 1 July 2007. All three holiday homes will have their own private garden and terrace.

From 1 April till 31 October it is possible to pitch a tent in the orchard. In addition there are several idyllic spots on the property that lend themselves to wild camping.

Children can play to their hearts’ content around the courtyard: there is a sandpit and a small playground, as well as a large inflatable swimming pool and a trampoline. In addition there is a petting zoo where children can help to care for and feed the animals.

For adults and children alike the area provides ample opportunity to stroll around the vegetable garden, orchard, woods and meadows of Domain des Royeres and the surrounding countryside.

All our fresh products from the vegetable garden and orchard, as well as beef and eggs are available at our small shop.

Domaine de Royeres is a must for anyone with a longing for a simple and healthy rural lifestyle.
