About this listing
The house is in a small hamlet of gorgeous homes and agricultural farms. It is outstandingly beautiful and very quiet. Perfect for walking, cycling and relaxation. The hill top location allows stunning views over surrounding countryside.
This family home has all modern conveniences. It sleeps 8. One bedroom is upstairs in the magically restored hayloft. It is accessed by split oak beam stairs which are a beautiful and unique feature of this property but are not suitable for small children. There is no hand rail and care must be taken at all times. The upstairs bedroom also has a TV and living area (with DVD, video).
Downstairs there are three more bedrooms, two bathrooms, a very large living room, a dining area and a kitchen. The kitchen has a large gas oven/hob, fridge, freezer, microwave, dishwasher and an adjoining utilities room has a washing machine and drying area.
The huge open plan living area is perfect for relaxing. There is Wi-Fi throughout but after the first 5Gb the speed is reduced from 10MB to 512Kbps download speed. If you find this is not fast enough, top-ups can be purchased for £11 per 5GB.
All the beds are very high quality and comfortable. There is under floor heating/cooling throughout the downstairs area which makes this house very warm in winter and cool and airy in summer. There are wooden shutters on all downstairs rooms and two of the bedrooms have French doors opening onto the patio at the back of the house.
There is an extensive fenced garden with two large patios for al fresco dining and sun bathing. gazebo, sunbeds, BBQ.
Also available on request (deposit may be required) are adult and children's bikes, boules, croquet, electric piano and amplifier for ipod.
This house is romantic and finished to a very high standard and set in a tranquil, relaxing location. It would be splendid for Christmas/New Year breaks and ideal for summer holidays.

We have a large family with four children and two dogs. We love to have people stay in our holiday house and enjoy that gorgeous part of France. We adore France and we are keen to make sure our guests get the very best out of their stay so we have developed a website so that people can find out about some of the interesting things there are to do locally. We can send you details. Our children love swimming, cycling and exploring the local area. The lifestyle in this part of France is very family friendly and we spend lots of time together walking, horse riding, canoeing as well as home based activities like cooking, reading and playing games.
