La Grande Combe at a glance



Highlights of 2007
Harman & Clara's wedding day
On the magical date of 20 July 2007, Harman Westen (Nelleke's son) and Clara de Jong said “I do” at the château in St Izaire. The festivities continued at La Grande Combe. Nelleke made the wedding cake, which she worked on for 30 hours. Our friends Yves & Jackie, who run the Moulin de Faussergues restaurant, did the catering.
Bentleys at La Grande Combe
On 14 August Alexander Creswell, together with his friends Willy and Kate, came to stay with us (see photo). Their two gleaming 5m-long vintage cars had no difficulty making their way up the 2km forest road. In the evening we sat down to a wonderful dinner on the terrace overlooking the garden, during which Willy told us about how he used to be a stand-in musician in a famous British super-group. Kate was expecting and gave birth to a daughter in December. The next morning they polished the cars, checked the oil and water, and continued their holiday.

Special plans
La Grande Combe will be the setting for another wedding this year. Linde and Jeroen are planning to hold their wedding reception at La Grande Combe on 16 August. Our neighbours at La Bouysse will provide accommodation for some of the guests. It has long been Linde’s heart’s desire to get married at La Grande Combe, having stayed here for the first time when she was about three years old. It has become a second home of which she has fond memories
