This home from home has a 'wraparound' terrace, small private pool, a wooded garden, wendyhouse and table tennis. It is great for children.

There is little to hear from this house apart from bird song, cow bells and the chiming of the church clock. It oozes rustic charm. High in the hills, it enjoys comfortable temperatures even in the height of summer. It is situated in glorious surroundings and is one of the houses that make up a charming little hamlet. In the depths of nature, yet only 15 minutes to shops and a town centre.

A variety of beautiful circular walking paths with panoramic views across to the Pyrenees start from the very doorstep of this house.

The garden has lawns and an area of mixed woodland. There is a table tennis table, and a new plunge pool with fencing. A grassy ride winds through the trees past a chalet-style summer house.

Overlooking the dining area is a charming 'minstrel's gallery' with a double sofa bed, easy chairs and books etc.

The kitchen is light and airy with double doors leading onto the west-facing terrace. It is comprehensively equipped with a fridge/freezer, a separate fridge, a double-size cooker and oven, a microwave, a coffee-maker, a kettle and a large toaster. There is a double sink and a dishwasher. The kitchen leads onto an adjoining laundry/utility room where there is a washing machine and tumble-dryer.

There are 5 comfortable bedrooms each with its new ensuite bath/shower room plus another WC/shower downstairs.

Al fresco life is easy on the shaded terraces with tables and chairs, plus a charcoal barbecue.
