Max guests: 6
Min stay: 2 nights
House description:
“Hirondelle” is the French word for “swallow” (the bird, not the verb), and in the case of this striking Dutchess County retreat, the way the syllables roll gracefully off the tongue is perfectly in line with the elegance and esoteric atmosphere of the home. Unlike the farmhouses and cottages dotting the countryside, the Hirondelle is delightfully showy, and stands out from the surrounding scenery like a yogic spaceship. The interior is spacious and bright, and accommodates up to six people. Can it get any better? Yes! This zen retreat is just a short drive from some of the area’s best eateries, including Café Les Baux and Red Devon Restaurant.
