Agnès and François, son of the soil whose farmers grandparents also held the same place (café RABEYRIN) well appreciated by the villagers and the visitors of the castle, immortalize since 2007 through their 2 guest rooms first and most recently holiday rentals a 80-year-old family tradition of welcome.
These guest rooms and B&B activity were for Agnès and François a real life plan. Both prefered to consider their rooms as a mean to communicate and share their passions rather than a commercial activity.
If François, Sales manager of a british unit, changes his suit in the evening and on weekends to be transformed into a gentleman-farmer, Agnès, as for her, left her job of European HR Program manager within an international group to dedicated herself into local voluntary missions and to this tourist activity as well as to elaborate gastronomic recipes for more than 12 years.
We acquired this building in May, 1996. It was then about a farm belonging to a local farmer, this one by having inheriting in the 1930s during the dismantling of the Domain of Maubourg. Indeed until this date, this farm, as the other farms of the hamlet of MAUBOURG, was part of the same tenement. When we bought this building, it was not by chance … La Désirade, which was not named that way back then, was the neighbour of François big father, Alphonse Rabeyrin, which had already been acquired itself by the previous generation.
