About Us

Our idea…..

We wanted to create the kind of place which we ourselves would love to stay in. A lot of time has been spent thinking about what our ideal “retreat” would be like.
La Maison Verte is the result.

The main ingredients are…

Beautiful surroundings, peace and tranquility
The largely undiscovered Vienne region of France is absolutely beautiful and offers the best in French countryside, with mighty rivers like the Gartempe and the Vienne, sunflower fields and deep forests. There are medieval towns with a wealth of architecture and lots of little traditional villages to explore. Existence here is shrouded in a feeling of wellbeing and relaxation where things like family, food and quality of life are still the most important and you can’t help wondering if you’ve taken a step back in time.

Genuinely good food and drink
Monica’s passion for cooking and everything food is born from a background where cooking, eating and enjoying fresh home-made food are the main ingredients for great socialising and enjoyment. Having lived in Sweden, Spain, England and now France there is an interesting diversity shining through in what’s on offer at mealtimes. Serving good food and drink to our guests is a huge part of what La Maison Verte is all about. You will be able to enjoy fresh, seasonal fruit and vegetables from our own kitchen garden as well as the local markets, which also offers a wonderful choice of seafood and local meat.

Total comfort and pampering
La Maison Verte has got three double rooms available for guests hence enabling us to give a very personal and informal service. Whether you prefer to be private, or join in with daily life at La Maison Verte, you can rely on our undivided attention whenever you wish for it. Attention to detail has been at the forefront when creating our rooms. Total comfort coupled with a lovely ambience is our aim. We have an extensive book and DVD library which our guests can make use of. You can put your favourite old classic on in the very cosy guest lounge. If you want a bottle of chilled white wine, or a hot chocolate, to accompany it just let us know and we will see to it and of course, any hint of a chill and we will light a roaring log fire for you!

Comfortable sun loungers, outdoor shower amongst flowers and leaves, lots of pretty seating areas and the camp fire are there for your use in the summertime.
