the house...

A perfect place for relaxing, for eating and drinking, for families, for friends.

 

 

 

 

 

The house

 

The old stone house is built in an L-shape, with the modernised part stretching along the road and containing the living accommodation. The traditional, unconverted part forms the right angle to the main building.

 

The house sleeps 8-10 people comfortably. On the ground floor is a shower room/wc; a fully fitted modern kitchen with gas hob, electric oven, dishwasher, washing machine, old pine butcher's block, table and chairs; the lovely dining room with old oak table and also containing a sofa bed; the salon with dvd player, toys, books and games, and the charming, unconverted 'summer kitchen'.

 

Upstairs 3 double bedrooms and 1 twin bedroom lead off a long corridor (two double rooms are interconnected), as well as a bathroom with wc, and a separate wc. The beds are extremely comfortable - we are strong believers that part of a good holiday is enjoying a lie-in!

The garden

 

The kitchen opens up onto a sunny courtyard - an excellent place for breakfast under the beautiful Catalpa tree. Our homemade pizza oven sits in a corner waiting to be lit, and a path leads up from the courtyard to the garden.

 

The pretty garden is mainly laid to lawn, with plenty of room for badminton, football and running around. It is completely enclosed by an old stone wall, and contains well established trees, fruit trees and shrubs.

 

There is a large stone terrace with a wooden pergola covered in vines with a roomy dining table beneath, which provides welcome shade from the sun and is an ideal place to spend lazy hours eating, drinking and relaxing.

 

A hammock hangs between two pine trees - the perfect place to read a book, or enjoy a quiet hour or two.

 

The 5m x 15m pool is situated in a sunny spot at the end of the garden and is surrounded by a fence to provide security. If you feel the need you can carry on swimming at night time - just switch on the lights.
