THE HOUSE

“…this beautifully restored, very proud little 17th Century farmhouse, in an unspoilt and quiet location, is simple, enchanting and makes for a very cosy Easter or Summer bolt hole!”

Recently meticulously converted by the owners, the house now offers a traditional old-style Bearnaise environment for an enchanting and comfortable holiday retreat.
A great heavy old door leads onto original Ardoise slate flooring, wood burner fireplace, stone walls and open beams – all help create a traditional but very comfortable setting in the lounge and old Bearnais fireside areas. The house has discrete central heating and all the added modern facilities expected for today- CD Music player, DVD and TV set to France's TNTsat- but has English News (BBC, Sky News etc;) crucially without spoiling the internal or external traditional ‘country style’ feel of the inside and outside of the building.

There is a well serviced family kitchen providing all modern comforts- dishwasher, electric hob & oven and low level fridge and freezer. But arranged in a country style with oak worktop, hand made tiling on the floor and a generous French cabinet for storage of food, utensiles and crockery. A wood and charcoal based barbeque is also supplied to eat al fresco in the garden. For your convenience there are always basic supplies provided -we ask guest to use, but please top up or replace on a 'like for like' basis. Thanks.

The main, double bedroom is cosy, very French…. and traditionally simple! With painted wooden floors and open oak beams throughout the upstairs.. The second bedroom has one 3/4 (120cm) size bed and one large single (100cm) making it a flexible and comfy room for either children or guests. The whole house retains an authentic, rough & country style throughout but with many more modern touches and home comforts than one would perhaps expect! The spectacular, spacious bathroom has wood everywhere as well as a spacious rain shower cubible, massive bath and stone based sink- covering all tastes and preferences.
