"L'Aunisienne" from the Aunis, formely smaller province of France with its capital La Rochelle.
This "chambre d'hôtes" (B&B, the French way!) is situated upstairs in the 18th century part of the manor house and can sleep one, two or three people in one or two beds. The bedroom is 24 m² large and has two big twin windows overlooking the huge parkland and animal fields. Its North-West orientation confers luminosity and preserves from the summer heats. No need for air conditioning: thick stone walls and traditional wood shutters can make it without energy consumption.
The spirit of the place and the respect of the regional character have inspired our decoration and room fitting choices. From past centuries, this bedroom kept a classical black marble fireplace and its pier glass with a mythological scene, a high cealing with painted beams,lovely doors with a wax patina, and old espagnolettes. The original typical wood floor was recovered under carpetand plaster, sanded and simply oiled. The walls are papered with Chinese straw giving a warm and natural atmosphere. The old style closet and the bathroom complete the fittings.
The Charentaise or Aunisienne atmosphere is given by the 19th century furniture: made from cherry or wallnut wood, we got it from our family and from antic markets (wardrobe with a mirror, sleigh bed, bedside tables, desk and table, armchair and chairs). The raspberry and vanilla colored cloth by LINVOSGES mixes "toile de Jouy"and cotton plaid.
