Farmhouse in Midi Pyrenees, France

Property Details of Midi Pyrenees Farmhouse

Nestling in a beautiful valley, Le Segala gite is ideal for families or friends traveling together. The four double bedrooms (3 double beds and 1 twin bedded room) each have their own shower room with toilet and basin. One of the bedrooms (a double) is on the ground floor. There is a living room with comfortable sofas and chairs, French TV, DVD and video player and games. The kitchen and dining room has its original stone floor and has recently been remodelled but still retains the French feeling. Outside we have a 7m in the round pool which has magnificent views over the valley. The garden is shaded (essential in high summer) and three is a built-in barbeque and lots of places to relax - perhaps in the hammock? Le Segala is on four acres of land with walnuts and fruit trees - and is situated on a quiet lane used by the locals only!
