Help yourself to the fruits in the orchard, while away lazy summer hours feeding the fish, ducks and moorhens swimming in one of the two picturesque ponds, watch the amazing arial acrobatics of the barn swallows, or listen to the frogs singing!

Ball games, kite flying, playing on the swings / trampoline / slide / sandpit, playing badminton, cricket or croquet, stroking & milking the goats, catching frogs, collecting the chicken eggs, feeding the turkeys, a barbecue or family picnic.

And as the sun goes down take a stroll around the 8 acre meadow before retiring to your garden for a glass of wine around the fire pit. At La Bourdonnerie there is something for all of the family.
