About this property

Spacious 3 Bedroomed Cottage in Rural Position. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

The beamed cottage is spacious with 3 bedrooms. The master bedroom has en suite and another bathroom serves bedrooms 1 and 2. The kitchen/diner is well equipped and this leads to a comfortable lounge with television so you can watch your favourite soaps.

The frenchdoors lead onto a private patio with equipment for outdoor living. The patio looks down to the heated pool which is accessed through the pretty gardens. The shared swimming pool is 10 x 5m and boasts a large patio for sunbathing and is heated with salt water, which means no harsh chemicals. The pool area is fenced and locked, as per regulations, ensuring peace of mind when children are playing in the garden. The pool is shared with the owners and possibly my daughter and grandchildren maybe on holiday.
