A very beautiful residence restored with great taste to provide all the modern comforts a few
minutes from the Collegiate Church of La Romieu. Above all, calm. The park hosts superb
outbuildings and a beautiful swimming pool. The owners are charming people who love this
house and have a high sense of hospitality.

We loved our stay at Manoir Joubertiere - the house was wonderful...gorgeously designed
throughout, and a glorious combination of rustic beauty and smart, high-end interiors.
Particular highlights were Petanque and the massive pool! The house itself is set in beautiful
fields, incredibly quiet at night, with sunflower fields and charming La Romieu nearby. We
loved our stay and would 100% recommend to anyone else. Thank you.
