Whether you prefer to relax at the pool, explore the unspoilt nature, enjoy a great home cooked meal, burn energy in the playground, visit the permaculture garden, practice yoga or meditate, play a game of Jeux-de-Boules, marvel at the Milky Way at night or just read a book in the shade of an oak tree. At Petite Vallée there is something to enjoy for everyone.
We’re in the process of creating a permaculture farm. Permaculture is a philosophy of working with instead of against nature. Our plan is to plant a food forest where we imitate a real forest with edible varieties, a vegetable garden, a nursery where we nurture all our baby plants, a compost pile to keep the land fertile, plenty of wildlife habitats and the wild zone which in our case is represented by the forest bordering the property. Step-by-step and with slow and simple solutions our plan becomes reality
We would love to share our passion with you at Petite Vallée. Be a helping hand in the garden. From harvesting fresh veggies, to cutting herbs and edible flowers and taking care of our baby plants in the nursery. Or go on a wildpicking adventure in the forest. A magical experience to see how much food actually grows all around us! This enables you to connect with the food you eat, see how it grows and discover what’s in season. This is a truly meditative experience.
No matter what weather, there is always time to play! The swimmingpool provides endless fun in the sun. For the little ones who prefer dry activities there is a wooden playset with swings, football goals, table tennis and a badminton net and rackets. Or do as the French do: enjoy a game of Jeux-de-Boules.
For the rainy days: there are plenty of board games available in the houses to play in front of the fireplace.
We will surprise you with a creative farm-to-fork dinner once a week. Healthy & delicious homemade food using our own produce, wild picked foods or delicacies made by neighbouring farms & makers. The menu will be local, seasonal and vegetarian
Music, wine & pizza. Once a week we heat up the wood fire oven to prepare some delicious pizzas. Kids can wake up their chef aspirations and are invited to make their own Petite Pizza. A moment to interact with other guests or you can take away to your own accomodation for a more private night.
Craving croissants, but don’t feel like driving to the bakery every morning? Order fresh croissants or a crispy baguette the evening before and you will have them hanging at your door in the morning.
There is enough to see and do to keep you entertained for months. But holiday is also about giving yourself and your family a break from it all and allow some time to unplug. Dive into our library for a good read. Install yourself on a sunbed and just enjoy the sun. There are yogamats available if you wish to practice some yoga or meditate. Find yourself a quiet corner and salute the sun.
Just sit in a chair and make sure you look up when the night falls. Due to the incredible clean air and the lack of light pollution, you will be greated by the Milky Way. Stargaze your night away.
