A little history...

Villa Magnieu was built in the 17th century & extended in the 18th century to add a small chapel on the east side of the villa. This is now the kitchen of the main house.


The Villa was a Maison de Maître (or Master's House) for a large wine estate.

Aasa & David bought Villa Magnieu in 2012 & have completely restored & refurbished the gîtes. We look forward to telling you more!
