The History

For lovers of calm and nature, surrounded by meadows and grove, a beautiful XVIIIth century farmhouse, completely privative, full of charm, situated overlooking a valley with horses in a fenced meadow along the lodge.

The inside

An old farm, completely privative, with modern conveniences (air-conditionning in the two bedromms under the roof, internet access, WiFi, LCD television, DVD, top of the range kitchen appliances ...) mixed with the charm of an authentic restoration.  In a world where we tend to forget the real vlaues, special attention has been paid to the use of genuine materials such as walls made out of a mixture of sand and chalk, stone tiles, chestnut and poplar wood, and restoration of the roof by using old recovered tiles.   The house offers a library with an important collection of regional literature.

On the ground floor a living room of 4 m2 with an open fire and a dining room with an open kitchen fitted with top of the range kitchen appliances.

The rooms of the ground floor give access on one side to an inner yard with two lime trees of more than hundred years of age each, under which breakfast and siesta in the shade can be taken, on the other side there is access to the swimming pool and the gorgeous "Borie" in dry stones ...
