The light ,airy and very spacious living area has stairs leading down to a large double bedroom with French windows to a private south facing garden with patio , garden furniture and BBQ....We are three kilometres from Gace ....a small market town with good food shopping and restaurants. Gace has a small museum dedicated to Alphonsine Plessis , aka La Dame aux Camellias . She was born in a nearby hamlet in 1824 and at the tender age of 14 went to Paris to earn her living .Because of her beauty she became the muse of several artists,musicians and authors but died tragically at the age of 23...
