With every comfort taken care of and attention to detail guaranteed, we pride ourselves on offering you the perfect backdrop for a fantastic break away, so that you can focus on the most important thing – spending time together.

We took our first trip to France in 2012 and experienced the charm and character of a variety of beautiful Bed & Breakfasts. We loved the concept of staying in beautiful locations and enjoying bespoke and authentic accommodation. During this time we realised that this was something that we wanted to create for others – a unique stay in a very special location, providing you with a wonderful experience that you will never forget.

And so the long search for the perfect property began. The minute we walked through the gates and saw the view from the garden, we fell in love with this location and could instantly see our dream for Villa d’Amour.

After 12 months of renovations during which the Villa was transformed into a little piece of French paradise, we opened the doors to guests in 2016 and have welcomed so many lovely couples since then.

We hope that our website provides you with all the information that you need to know but if you have any questions about staying at Villa d’Amour or about exploring the local area, we are here to help. Please just get in touch.
