« La Folie de Papierre »

 I am sure, you are wondering why I choose this name?

Well, here are the reasons : First of all, restorating this old family house was a crazy project. The house is located in the area of “la folie” in the village of Kain which means craziness in english,… Furthermore, my dad used to say that the wind blows like a crazy in the street. It is still the case today ! Finally, « Papierre » because it is the nickname my sisters give me since i'm a little girl, it comes from my name “Marie-Pierre”.

 

The holiday cottage occupies the half of a large mansion built in 1836. At first, it was destined to be a mess for cavalry men and the military field was just in front of the house. The landscape has changed since then but we are still in the middle of the charming and quite countryside.

 

Located in a quiet area, on the slope of the mount Saint-Aubert, five kilometers away from the beautiful city of Tournai.

This house belongs to my family since four generations and i've always been in love with it. That's why I decided to restore it in order to preserve it and to let people discover it.

 

The holiday house has been restorated and refurnished in 2009. Every now and then, I improve the facilities.

 

Description

The house is organized as follow : On the ground floor, you will find a large kitchen fully-equipped, a living room with a sofa-bed for two persons, a bed room with its own private bathroom (shower, sink and toilet) and another bathroom with a bathtub, a sink and a toilet. The ground floor is directly connected to the garden by two sliding doors at the back of the house. On the first floor, you will find two bedrooms : the first one with a double standard bed overlooking the garden and another with two single beds (90 cm). The two rooms are both overlooking the countryside around. The large garden allows you to relax when the weather is nice and eventually to do some barbecues as all the facilities are provided. An aromatic herbs garden at your disposal. Two cats and two dogs are waiting for your caresses. My two border collies are very kind and know they cannot enter the holiday house. The children can safely enjoy themselves as the garden gives at the back of the house. Babies and young children are welcome : the holiday house can offer up two to three baby beds, a baby high chair, a babypen, a baby changing mat on demand. The house is heated by electric heaters and pellet stoves.
