About : The property
This is an incredibly beautiful French farmhouse and a perfect tranquil retreat. For those with busy lives, you can relax in the quiet, landscaped garden, and then cool off in the glistening pool. The house dating from 1837 has been lovingly restored for holiday rentals, yet without compromise and keeping many exquisite features.
You will sleep comfortably in one of the three bedrooms, under original oak beams surrounded by traditional stone walls. Barbecue and then eat in the expansive outdoor space or explore the choice of local restaurants and bars just a few minutes away.
You will feel like you are miles from anywhere, but Chalais is 4km away, where you will find supermarkets, two of which are open all day. The petrol station has 24 hour service, and several bars and restaurants that are open year round.
There is a market every Monday year-round, a pharmacy, a tourist bureau, as well as an organic shop, hairdressers, and a whole range of medical services.
The front garden is in full sun all the year round, however, the porch means you can read, relax and eat in the shade if you prefer. In the summer, traditional stone walls and quality insulation keeps the interior cool. In winter, under-floor heating and natural wood-burners ensure your total comfort.
The main bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, with shower, toilet, bidet and sink. The second bathroom has a bath and shower, toilet bidet and sink. Both bathrooms have razor sockets.
The rental includes use of all the facilities at the house, with sheets and towels provided for both bathroom and pool use. There is a washing machine and a fully equipped kitchen. In the lounge, a DVD player and satellite TV give you access to all the UK and French terrestrial channels, so you won't miss your favourite soap or sporting event.
Each bedroom has one UK style socket and a USB charger point so don't worry about forgetting your adaptors.
