A special hideaway only an hour north of Toulouse

The dream was born in Djibouti. That’s where a couple, with Finnish/Czech and French origins, tried out a smaller version of the bigger plan: to renovate an old farmhouse into a vacation rental in the rustic countryside of France. Finding the Happy Hamlet – after seeing 85 other houses all over France – is how it came true.

Dressed in white Quercy stones, it’s easy to see how the old farm-hamlet that dates back centuries caught their attention. Then came the soul. According to the couple, Napoleonic land register shows the settlement was once habited by five families, and the hamlet’s last life was as a goat cheese farm. 

With 13 hectares of land composed by nature, from forests and prairies to bamboo trees, fields, and gardens, a wise plan would be to arrive, stop your engine, and let the chirping of grasshoppers, the hoot of the owl, and the bass-heavy burps of the lake frogs become your soundscape. 

Pursuits here consist of enjoying a sauna in a barrel among the expanse of greenery – Finns, sauna masters of the world, like to pair heat with the practice of omissa oloissaan, or aloneness with one’s thoughts – or swimming in the chlorine-free pool. The land is also prime for walks, running, cycling, and even horse-riding (the neighbors have over a dozen).

Nourish both hunger and creative itches by rooting the garden for delicious dish ingredients. Look hard enough, and you’ll find nearly anything – even hazelnuts, olives, wild asparagus, and truffles. 

For those in search of a creative recharge, this vacation rental in France gives a whole new definition to “happy place.” Read more about the tiles in this home in our Journal section here.

AROUND

Located in a quiet and untouched region of the Southwest French countryside, the magic of being here does center around exploring the property and being “in the middle of nowhere,” as the owners call it.

That said, it is certainly possible to rent a car and experience the greater region, and the Happy Hamlet is an hour north of Toulouse, two hours from Bordeaux, and two and a half hours from the Atlantic, the Mediterranean, and the Pyrenees. 

The owners recommend seeing the nearby medieval villages and visiting the local farmer’s markets, a lavender farm, and the sunflower fields. For the more adventurous, you can go climbing, canoeing, or connect with our prehistoric ancestors by taking a cave tour.

    The most gorgeous, warm-hearted, charming, delightful, inspiring and mesmerizing location and retreat you could imagine. Thanks, Suska and Nico, and others. You’re amazing! I’m already booking my next trip ❤

    At the Happy Hamlet a lot of exceptional things come together: a lovely french limestone house with blue shutters on a fertile plot of land full of beautiful vegetation (e.g. fig, nut and even a pine tree) and a charming hostess and host, who apply their rich live experiences and competencies on everything they undertake: the delicious breakfasts and dinners, picturesque interiors and places in the garden and heartwarming attention for what will make their guests happy. We as a family seldom felt so welcome and relaxed at a holiday accommodation.

  • KATHRYN, September 28, 2019

    This is one of the most beautiful, happiest, most welcoming places I’ve ever been. Suska and Nico (and Emma) provide cozy rooms, amazing food, hikes, daytrips to vineyards and brocante all in a gorgeous region of France. They are kind, funny and helpful. We had a fantastic week and I’m sad it’s at an end. Do anything you have to to get here!

  • GEORGIANA M., August 28, 2018

    Thank you so much for the wonderful time at the Hamlet. This was the best vacation I ever had. I was never treated as well in my life. It feels so safe at the Hamlet and it certainly is a retreat from all the craziness in this world. You both have exposed me to beauty fun laughing so hard my stomach hurt for days when we came home. I really can’t express in words my mercie. You both put stars in my eyes and defined truly what the meaning of what a vacation is. I am so grateful to you both. Hopefully I will return again for wine, delicious food and many laughs!
