About this property

Beautiful Old Stone Farmhouse. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

Le Pouch is a charming old stone family farmhouse on the edge of a hamlet in deep rural France.  The walls are 2 feet thick which makes the house cool in the heat of the summer.  All the rooms are of generous size and comfortably furnished without being fussy.  The kitchen is excellently equiped for those who like to cook and even has an ice-cream maker and preserving pan for those who wish to make their own jam from the orchard (plums, apricots, cherries).  
 
The area is known for prunes and the sitting room still has the remains of the old prune oven and original terracotta floor and there are old stone sinks in most of the rooms.  
 
The upstairs rooms are light and airy with views over the garden and sweeping out into the countryside.  
 
Le Pouch is definitely a family house with doors being left open and much of life is spent outside eating, swimming, snoozing in the hammock.  It's also wonderful for bird enthusiasts having a resident hoopoe family, many birds of prey and swallows who dive-bomb the pool to drink at sunset.  Also spotted - bats, an eagle and wild boar.

Medieval Hilltop Villages
