Peace and relaxation within extensive grounds.
FR117 stands within 220 hectares of rolling countryside, surrounded by the Owner’s vines. Extensive lawns with lavender plantings encircle the houses, offering views over an etang to woodland beyond with a small fishing lake. Only 5km from the lively village of St Puy with a good restaurant.
Originally a farmstead cluster of small houses now restored and offered as one. Accommodation in the principal Maison des Anglais with main salon, kitchen and dining area, guest annexe Maison Coueilles, and pool side Orangerie. Spacious bedrooms situated in all three houses, four on the ground floor level, all with en suite bathrooms.
The Orangerie with games area has a jasmine and honeysuckle festooned dining auvent, overlooking an enclosed heated swimming pool (16m x 8m)
“We had a wonderful time, thank you! The house was lovely, the kids really enjoyed the pool and trampoline and we all got very involved in table tennis tournaments. Ken and Angela were very kind and great fun – we had a good evening sampling Ken’s Armagnac collection. They couldn’t have been kinder, and looked after us very well. Please thank the owners very much for us, and let them know how highly we think of the Gardiens.”
Accommodation is in three separate buildings, all close together and bedrooms are all comfortable with good bathrooms. We like the spacious pool area here, it has a kitchen, shower room and sitting area. There is a very pretty poolside dining area under a beautifully scented jasmine.
