Quaintrelle Farm

Why Quaintrelle?

“Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.”

An obscure word, quaintrelle describes a woman who emphasises a life of passion through personal style, leisurely pastimes, and charm.

While the word is connected to feminine identity, a life of passion and leisure is for everyone. This perfectly sums up the energy of our farm as it is driven by our passion for La Dolce Vita – the good life.

We believe we should do what we enjoy – the odd afternoon nap included! Here at Quaintrelle Farm, our pleasure is in elegant simplicity – creating abundant gardens, raising healthy animals, making things, baking, walking barefoot and watching the breeze.

Our Welcoming Place

Our goal at Quaintrelle Farm is to facilitate a loving, relaxed environment for people to stay. As a result of the covid-19 shutdown and the local housing crisis, we’ve changed our business model to support medium and long-term stays. This has allowed us to meet so many wonderful people!

We’re so grateful for the opportunity to live and work here. It continues to be an incredible learning experience and we’re enjoying the challenge.

Some thoughts about water

Every day, we turn on the tap and it’s just there, ready for our convenience. What would it look like to change our relationship with water? Not the water in some far-off waterfall, or idyllic beach but the water we use every day?
