The space

The flat is a top floor duplex in a converted Victorian school. The building is listed so many original features are retained, including the large downstairs windows which let in a lot of light.

Your room is the only bedroom on the lower floor with easy access to the kitchen, downstairs living area and a bathroom with shower on the same floor. The living area ceiling is two storeys high and includes a large dining area as well as sofas and arm chairs.

We have our own room upstairs at the other end of the flat so your room is quite private.

Guest access

You have full access to all downstairs rooms in the flat :)

Interaction with guests

We'll be delighted share tips or recommendations you might need during your stay, from local restaurants and pubs to activities and local transport.

We are fluent English and French speakers.

Other things to note

*Our off street parking area is accessible via a gate that we can open upon your arrival. Unfortunately large vehicles such as camper-vans and people carrier aren't allowed to park in there, but there is plenty of safe on-street places in front of the building :)

Mathilde was a great host! The room and the private bathroom are very nice, airy and spacious and the bed very comfortable. We had a great time staying with her, she responded quickly to all our needs and she made us feel at home. The flat has two storeys so both the bedroom and the private bathroom are indeed private. The kitchen is amazing, equiped with everything you may need to cook, which was extremely helpful. We definitely recommend staying there!

Mathilde est une hôte très sympathique, son appartement atypique (dans une ancienne école) est immense, très moderne (Wifi ...) est situé dans quartier calme mais proche des transports en commun et avec aux alentours commerces et restaurants. Pour une première expérience avec AIRBNB, nous sommes enchantés de notre séjour.
