Holiday Rental House
This lovely villa is set in the middle of an acre of lawns, flowering shrubs and mature trees. Surrounded on two sides by high hedges and approached by a long, gated drive, guests enjoy both privacy and security. The views are beautiful with mountains to the south from the balcony and unspoilt views from the garden across meadows and wooded hillsides. There is a large floodlit 12x6m swimming pool with roman steps and a barbecue for perfect alfresco lunches or wining and dining on balmy summer evenings. There are several private shaded areas for quiet reading, large lawns for children and two terraces with plenty of garden furniture. Local sight-seeing information, table tennis, games and books are available. A welcome hamper will be placed in the accommodation ready for your arrival.

It is incorporated into the main house by means of an internal staircase but can be rented as a separate unit out of season. The area is a cyclists paradise, and golfers are spoilt for choice with an amazing variety of courses within a 45 minute drive. With such magnificent scenery close at hand, you are ideally placed to explore this beautiful region of France. More
