A clown school and b & b to the west of Paris? We found one! A fortuitous Booking.com find, la Cie Etincelle Bouillasse is run by a couple of fine gentlemen, one a farmer for over 30 years, on a farm in the country in the village of Lommoye, not far from Giverny.
The B & B/farm/Clown School/Theatre is housed in a converted hangar, where theatre items share space with tractors.
The B & B boasts a dormitory room, private room, and more beds downstairs. Our hosts Olivier and Jean-Paul were gracious, kind, and...professional clowns.
A peek inside the circus tent theatre.
Can entertain up to 160 people for a performance of clowns, theater, or music.
In another part of the property, an enclosed theater also sports a bar.
In addition to Frigo the dog, the cat, and the chickens, a friendly donkey greeted us.
