Fantastic luxury villa ideally situated in a pretty hamlet overlooking the lake of a golf course in the heart of the French countryside. Only 3km from a thriving village with all amenities including bar/restaurant, supermarket, boulangerie and weekly market.

French windows lead out from the lounge onto the terrace which has an outdoor table and chairs allowing for al fresco eating both at lunch and evening meals. Here you can relax and unwind in the evening with a glass of wine or a beer and watch the beautiful sunset. After a delicious barbecue you might take a stroll along the country lanes of the hamlet or walk up to the golf club for an aperitif or digestif. Or even better let them do the cooking and have a meal there! A perfect way to spend a relaxing holiday!
