About this property

Stone Farmhouse With Private Pool In Lovely Setting. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

Mothis is a tastefully converted stone farmhouse believed to date from the 13th century, secluded in one acre of private grounds yet easily accessible approached by a 500m private drive.

It's built of local stone and set over several stepped levels. It has panoramic views across the Vallee du Mail looking towards Pujols. It's very spacious and features an abundance of character - original beams, fireplaces, log burning stoves, timber and tiled floors. The thick stone walls provide coolness inside the house during the hot summer weather. There's a covered terrace to the side of the property set over two levels for dining, a large pool terrace with sun loungers, parasols, bbq, tables and chairs and most importantly a 10m x 5m private pool with Roman steps with great views.
