A 200 year-old farmhouse fully renovated to UK standards, with 3 double bedrooms each with ensuite bathroom, including a linked gite with dormitory, lounge, dining area and shower room perfect for older children or teenagers. Wi-fi throughout house and pool area. The house is in the heart of a peaceful hamlet in gorgeous Gascony countryside, with bar/restaurant and boulangerie each within a 2-minute walk. Sleeps 7 in the house and 3 in the gite. Recently refurbished secluded pool and terrace.
This is our family home when we're in France, made comfortable for 2 adults and 4 (now grown) children, so offers more than a typical holiday let. 2019 will be our first year letting it out, so please treat it with love. The village, one of a small handful with a good restaurant serving excellent traditional Gascon food (e.g. 3 course lunch for 17 euros) and a boulangerie, is 20 minutes from the nearest small towns with farmers markets, supermarkets, tennis courts, horse riding, kayaking and other amenities, and just over a hour from Spain and the Pyrenees which line the horizon. For that very rare rainy day, we have table tennis, badminton and other sports kits, DVDs and wi-fi. There are great walks from the doorstep. We think it s a perfect comfortable farmhouse for lazy family holidays. The entire house (except the locked room with our personal belongings), gite, barn and grounds are available for your use.
A very experienced bilingual English couple are available locally to manage the property in our absence and deal with any problems. Our French neighbours are also very friendly and ever-helpful.
Please note that the front of the house faces the church and its clock, which chimes the hour and half-hours during the day (not at night). We recommend in any event that you keep the shutters and double-glazed windows shut though the day to keep the house cool. The master bedroom and bedroom 3, which are south-facing, have ceiling fans, but due to the thick walls, the house is usually pleasantly cool despite 30 degree heat, especially if the shutters and windows are closed in the heat of the day.
