French country house with pool France

Prices from £1000 per Week
This stone built house has loads of character, having been carefully restored to retain all its original features such as oak beams, open fireplaces and the original bread oven, dating from the 1850's, in the wall of what is now the kitchen. The whole house is furnished in keeping with its character, but has all the modern elements like Wi-Fi connection and a flat screen 51" TV with surround sound and Sky. The garden is on 2 levels and has stunning views over the surrounding countryside with several terraces for eating, sunbathing or relaxing and enjoying some spectacular sunsets over a glass of local wine. There is lighting on dusk to dawn timers, so you can enjoy sitting out on hot summer evenings. On one level there is a large dining terrace with table and chairs under a gazebo facing west over the countryside on one side for those sunsets, while on another side it overlooks the 10m x 5m oval pool, which has Roman steps at one end. The pool has a wide surround, with sun-loungers and umbrellas for relaxing. We also provide beach towels. Adjoining this is a bar and barbecue area with a fridge, table and chairs for post swim refreshment. The bar is equipped with plastic plates and glasses for safe use around the pool area. The second level overlooks the pool and has a lawn and another terrace with an ornamental fountain. This terrace enjoys all round views.
