Early retirement brought me to this beautiful area of France, we have run this holiday business for 10 years after fully restoring these ancient stone barns, every day is a pleasure, as i am very keen on wildlife and the outdoors, and this lovely part of rural France does not disappoint. We have guests returning year after year, and these people with busy lives love the laid back atmosphere, the hammocks!, and the feeling of total relaxation.
|Year property purchased||2002|
|Why this location?||Fields of sunflowers, traditionally French and the friendly nature of the French people who have accepted us into their area. The house is set in 4 acres which teams with wildlife.. and there was plenty of room for our very large swimming pool!
Although we are rural we are close within walking distance of bars, restaurants supermarket and bakery and petrol station, so everything you could ever need for your holiday is very close at hand.
|Unique benefits of property||We can sleep 12/14 people comfortably in 7 bedrooms, 3 of them en suite, and another 2 bathrooms for the other rooms, as these rooms are spread over 2 houses, families and friends can holiday together, but can have their own privacy when required/needed. The house is set in 4 acres of gardens and fields with plenty of room to run about.. families often set up rounders/football/cricket/tennis/badmington games. The pool is very large, and secure with a childproof gate surrounding it...lots of outside space, with sun loungers tables and chairs everywhere, and large stone bbq, everything you would need, for a great family holiday.|
