There is a feeling of peace and calm at the house which has typical French charm and character. The beautiful pool is heated and the garden invites outside dining and BBQ's.
If the idea of sitting down at lunch time with a glass of wine, pate, cheeses and French bread on a sunny day looking at the fields and listening to the animals and occasional tractor whilst hopping in and out of the pool appeals to you then come and visit .
If you enjoy fishing or water sports in the lakes and nearby river Dronne or cycling on the deserted country roads then come and make your base here.
You will be able to sit outside from dawn through to night time when you'll be able to just stare up at the sky and be amazed at how bright the stars shine.
