may be the best word to describe your reaction when you first set eyes
on Le Petit Manoir des Bruyères. This delightful manor
is crowned with a distinctive Burgundian patterned roof in the style
the Hôtel Dieu in Beaune. The gardens are
filled with roses, flowerbeds and specimen trees. The residents
the gardens ~ a fine collection of birds including pheasants, ducks,
pigeons and others ~ are very interesting and fill the garden with
charm and voices.
The interior ~ from the magnificent ceilings to the beautiful carpets ~ is exquisite. Four-poster beds await you in many of the guest rooms, and the period furnishings throughout create an atmosphere of history and a sense of style. All double guest rooms are en suite, with showers or baths. The bathrooms are lavish and elegant with fine fixtures and beautifully appointed.
One of two suites offered is Montespan ~ a royal suite overlooking the forest and park ~ entered through an 18th-century music room where there are depictions of cherubs playing various musical instruments. A French-style ceiling, objets d'art, and antique furniture complete the picture. Its double bedroom offers a view of the flower garden, and the white Cyprus marble bath just adds to the feeling of luxury. La Vallière, a lovely rooom facing the front gardens, has a very comfortable bed and painted coffered ceiling. It also has an en suite bathroom that is lavishly decorated and includes a unique oval window overlooking the garden below.
Modern amenities at Le Petit Manoir des Bruyères include safes, satellite television, mobile phones and non-smoking rooms. Breakfast or fine dinners in the Louis XIII dining room are bountiful feasts to be long remembered.

The family's love for the home and gardens is evident, and it is happily shared with guests who come to Le Petit Manoir from all over the world.
