About this property

Spacious Farmhouse with Private Pool and Terrace. This villa is in a village setting.

 
 
Relax in a tranquil countryside village at our peaceful spacious farmhouse. Located about 3-5km from the towns of Vieillevigne and L'Herbergement.
There is a large enclosed area to the rear of the house with a superb, completely private 30' x 15' heated swimming pool and latest electric safety cover surrounded by a spacious terrace with loungers, table, chairs and pool house. To the rear there is also a large area separate from the pool with patio, barbecue and large table, ideally safe for children to play.
L'Andoussiere is not a touristy area, although it is within easy reach of beaches, restaurants and entertainment centres. We have tried most restaurants and our recommendations are listed at the house. This year we have added a table tennis table and a selection of bicycles. The delightful countryside with many lakes and forests to discover is ideal for cycling and walking.
The house has a well equipped kitchen with a good sized fridge, oven, mini-oven, microwave and dishwasher. There are 4 double bedrooms with one en suite, all big enough for an extra single/cot. The lounge is very spacious with a leather suite and 28" satellite tv/dvd etc. Woodburner/central heating. There is also a laundry room and we are now able to offer a linen service.
We have a small vineyard and offer complimentary wine as well as contacts for tasting/buying wine to take home.

For families or groups looking for a quiet location but within easy reach of facilities and attractions. There is ample room for large groups with all the comforts of home and the owner is in easy reach if there are any problems.

We have just returned from a fabulous holiday here. The property is well maintained and lovely and clean. The facilities are great and the pool is lovely! There are plenty of supermarkets within a 5min drive and there's even a McDonalds 10mind away for those missing a taste of home!
There were 10 people in our party......adults, teenagers and younger children. We all had a wonderful time and would definitely stay in thus property again. Be sure to visit a puy du Fou if you visit, it's a fantastic day out.
