About this property

Medieval House with Pool in Village Centre. This cottage/gite is in a village setting.

You enter the townhouse by entering through a heavy wooden door on Place de la Halle in the heart of the popular medieval village of Saint Antonin Noble Val, the setting for the recent Helen Mirren film 'The 100 Foot Journey'. The door leads to a courtyard, with 2 terraces, one with a lovely private pool and the other with furniture for outdoor dining and general laziness! The house itself is packed with period features, beams, 4 metre high ceilings and some lovely stonework. But is also has all the things modern life requires, high speed internet, UK tv by satellite and a well equipped kitchen.

The house is located on a cobbled street in the very centre of this popular village, with cafes, restaurants and the village square 50 metres away.

We rent this house from Saturday to Saturday during high season. Please contact us if you would like a different start day. Out of peak season we offer monthly prices; April £880, May £1320, September £1430, October £880.

The kitchen/dining/living room is one open plan area 8m by 6m with a dining table for 8, tv with both UK and French channels, and double doors opening onto an outdoor terrace overlooking the private pool.

Living rooms

The room also has 3 large windows overlooking the medieval street (and the market on Sundays).

Bedrooms

There are 2 spacious double bedrooms, one with a 160cm wide bed, the other with a 200cm wide bed and a single bed. Both these rooms have 4 metre high ceiling, waxed wooden floors and large windows overlooking the street.

Bathrooms

On the same floor as the bedrooms are 2 recently refurbished shower rooms. On the first floor (kitchen/living/dining) there is also a wc.

Heating

There is a fireplace.

Entertainment

The house has a television with both UK and French television. There is also very high speed internet so you can stream anything you normally do on your electronic devices!

Garden and outside

Unusually for properties in St Antonin, there is a very large courtyard behind the property. There is a terrace with dining table, outdoor furniture for reading books etc as well as a heated pool!

Parking and garages

There is no parking in the medieval centre of the village. There are free and safe carparks dotted around the outskirts of the village, the closest is 50 metres from the house.

Visitor suitability

This house was built in medieval times, while it is full of period charm it is laid out over 3 levels and there are lots of steps. There are also loads of windows just over a metre off the ground, so it is not safe for young children.

About the Owner/Advertiser, Ms Clare Simmons

We are an Australian family who live and work (and go to school) in Saint Antonin. When we aren't renovating our barn, we like to take advantage of everything the area has to offer; walking, mountain biking and a little bit too much eating of pain au chocolats (or chocolatines as they are called round here)

Year property purchased 2013
Why this location? We already loved Saint Antonin, but to find a house with an pool land courtyard like this in the centre of the village meant we bought it as soon as we saw it.
Unique benefits of property Being in the centre of the village is great for family holidays. Everything is accessible on foot, from the restaurants to canoeing and the weekly market takes place right under your window.

The Owner Recommends

The amazing Sunday food and craft market

People come from miles around to buy produce, regional specialities and crafts at the weekly Sunday market which takes place directly outside the front of the house!

Wow! What a perfect location for a 'car free' holiday! Once we arrived we barely used the car - we wanted to relax and we were able to do so! You can literally walk out of the front door to eat a leisurely lunch or evening meal. The pool was a real bonus, although unfortunately most of our week was on the cooler side. Clare was very welcoming and replied to any text queries. There were plenty of 'essentials' available to use and as requested we were happy to replace what we used. The Sunday market was fantastic - as reported in many local guide books.Great if you like outdoor activities as plenty of canoe places within walking distance.Following the walking tour of the town was great along with watching The 100 Foot Journey' (filmed here) whilst we were there>
Thank you
