The Pierres d’Histoire Experience

by Feb 7, 2019

Enjoy the experience ! 

 Staying in a house, in an exceptional place filled with history.



In the park of an emblematic site or on the beaches of Normandy, at the edge of a river or in an English park, Pierres d’Histoire makes no compromise whatsoever in the quality of its approach, offering its guests a privileged setting for an exceptional experience.

Full of history, sometimes witness to a  life full of splendors or of hard labor, keeping  probably some deep secrets, our houses are always places that seem suspended in both elegant and tranquile.

Manors, mills, dovecots, orange groves, stables, archways, craziness ….

Thanks to the backing of passionate owners and the savoir faire of dedicated craftsmen, these witnesses of the past are rehabilitated. They become places of modern living with a setting for a truly exceptional experience and yet keep their character. 

With the wish of respecting both History and savoir-faire, all our houses are rehabilitated with high-quality materials and architectural elements of their times. Furniture is chosen carefully and the interior decoration is a harmonious mix of traditional and modernity. And because it is often the little things that make an experience unique and memorable, Pierres d’Histoire thinks of every detail: pretty plates for dinner, a fireplace ready to be lit during those cold evenings, an ideal library or board games for you to relax with.

Available in each place, the house manager is our first ambassador and a guarantee of a flawless welcome. Careful, attentive to the well-being of her guests and the smooth running of the stay, she welcomes our guests upon their arrival, shows them the house and is attentive to their needs all through their stay.

To make the stay even easier and more pleasant, we offer you a variety of services, to be chosen at your pleasure : breakfast served to your room, prepared meals delivered to the house, private chauffeur, well-being center*.

“Thank you so much for the most magical stay in La Pompe! We wish we could stay longer. It was worth the considerable effort to get here without a car all the way from Australia. What a privilege to stay in the grounds of the magnificient château. The Japenese Garden is the most beautiful garden I have seen in my life. This incredible place will be part of me for the rest of my life. I celebrated my birthday here, what a wonderufl memory !”

” This a lovely house , perhaps the most lovely place I have ever stayed. For my first trip to France, I couldn’t have asked for anything better. Many thanks ! “

Inutile d’aller chercher plus loin la définition du paradis !
Un balcon sur le fleuve, le bruit du vent dans les arbres, le murmure de l’eau…et le moulin comme une citadelle dont la seule mission serait de veiller sur cette nature sereine. On ne veut pas en bouger, plus en partir non plus.”
