PLEASE NOTE THAT LA MARTINIE IS IN THE PROCESS OF BEING SOLD TO NEW OWNERS. THEREFORE IT WILL NOT BE POSSIBLE TO SECURE ANY NEW BOOKINGS UNTIL AFTER EASTER 2014

"Maison La Martinié" is situated in the famed "Golden Triangle" of the Tarn and is perched at the top of a hill enjoying breathtaking views of Cordes-Sur-Ciel. While the house enjoys a rural, countryside location it is situated on a quiet lane in a small hamlet with five other houses - all detached and situated in their own large private plots.

"Maison La Martinié" is the original farmhouse of the hamlet and enjoys uninterrupted views across rolling countryside to Cordes-sur-Ciel.

While the house dates back to 1800, it was completely refurbished in the autumn of 2011 and the spring of 2012 using over 200 litres of Farrow & Ball paint! The decoration of La Martinié was researched from French country interior books, in order to maintain the feel of an authentic French farmhouse.

Every last detail has been considered to create a luxury "home from home" including: antique furniture and Persian rugs throughout, French vintage chandeliers, premium white Egyptian cotton bedding, English duvets, mattresses and pillows, and thick spa quality towels.

The lounge has a huge wood-burner, two large, squashy comfy sofas, Plasma screen TV, Freesat, DVD player and Wi-fi. There is a lap-top provided for guests to use.

The French country kitchen is the heart of this home. It has a large farmhouse table seating six and opens out onto the private terrace. All modern appliances are at your disposal in the kitchen.

There are three superbly furnished double bedrooms – equipped with two kingsize and one double bed. The master bedroom has a log-burning stove.

The bathroom has been decorated using Italian limestone tiles and has a good sized shower. Currently there is only one loo in the house but there are plans to make a second one available from summer 2013 onwards.

Outside there is a private pool, BBQ, and two bicycles are available for guests to use. There is a picnic bench and a table which seats six for outside dining. The house is set in just over three acres of fenced meadow land and the gravelled courtyard which leads off the kitchen offers the upmost in privacy for you to enjoy your meals.

At the back of the house is the impressive entrance to the property which can be recognised by it's huge stone pillars and wrought iron gates. This leads into a gravelled courtyard with an open, barn style garage and wood-store.

The fortified bastide town of Cordes-sur-Ciel, (known as "the jewel of the Tarn) is approximately 3km away and has a bustling Saturday market. It is recognised as one of France's "Plus Beaux Villages" and has stunning cobbled streets, bistros, boutiques and a medieval square from where you can see our house (with the use of the telescope!) All this five minutes drive away from Maison La Martinié.

This is your 'home from home' and for the duration of your stay we want you to enjoy the same level of comfort as you do in your own home. Please visit our website, where you will find many more photos and a blog, by scrolling to the bottom of this advert and choosing the link 'Visit Site'.
