La Charnière is tastefully and neutrally decorated and furnished giving a cosy and homely feel. It is finished to a high specification in a contemporary style but retains a wealth of character features. It offers a well-thought-out, generous layout ideal for two with comfortable living areas, and everything you should need for your stay. There is electric underfloor heating making the property warm and cosy year-round.
