Summary

Set in the middle of the countryside amidst peace and tranquillity, and yet commanding stunning views over vines, fields and lakes, this property offers the very best of French living. It has been cleverly designed to be manageable for two (even in the depths of winter), and yet extremely scalable and flexible. There are 8 bedrooms in the main house (most offer separate access), with two additional guest suites – each of bedroom plus large living room / open plan kitchen and a pair of bathrooms apiece. The garden is similarly delightful – colourful, full of interest, and with a heated swimming pool that enjoys a south facing aspect and view. A gym suite, with Jacuzzi / balneo and sauna, complete the ensemble.
 
Whilst off the beaten track, it is never-the-less very accessible to supermarket, airports, schools and facilities. The possibilities with this property are endless – main residence, second home with plenty of guest accommodation, or indeed a commercial vacation rental (‘gite’).
