The rooms at Le Petit Rêve are on a grand scale, beginning with the foyer, which includes a large cane bench (original 1800s banquette) and a floor-to-ceiling cabinet (original 1700s vaisselier). From the foyer a walnut burl staircase rises to the second floor and the upstairs bedrooms.
The living room is exceptionally spacious and furnished with a sofa and several armchairs arranged before the stone fireplace, a desk, and other French antiques. The room is bright with natural light from windows that face south and west and overlook the gardens and vineyards. A glass door leads to an outside sitting area where it is pleasant to enjoy a cool drink and watch the sunset.
The expansive country kitchen has a farm table that can seat up to twelve. This is the ideal place for a family dinner, especially in cool months with logs burning in the large fireplace. The modern appliances include a four-burner gas cook top, conventional electric oven and microwave, dishwasher and a washing machine. There is generous counter space and a food prep area with a second sink. On the south side a glass door leads to a small terrace and breakfast table.
There are two bedrooms on the ground floor. The master bedroom has a sitting area with a sofa, armchairs and a desk, and a queen-sized bed positioned to take advantage of the white stone fireplace. The well-illuminated ensuite bath has a double vanity, WC and tub with hand-held shower, and a grand view of the countryside through a stained-glass window.
The second bedroom has a queen-sized bed, and views toward the north and east. Just outside off the hallway there is a bath with a glass-and-tile stall shower, sink and a separate WC.
Two bedrooms with beamed ceilings open off the upstairs landing. One bedroom is quite large, being above and roughly the same size as the living room. The other bedroom is smaller and cozier. Both have queen-sized beds, and, like the downstairs bedrooms, bedside tables with good reading lamps. In general the upper floor has a more of a country cottage feel, and as the natural light is limited to four small shuttered windows on the south side of the house, it is far less luminous than the downstairs. There is no bath or WC on the upper floor.
