Highly original and luxurious holiday let with pool and tennis court on site - the self-contained wing of a large country home, designed to combine original features with contemporary living.
The pigeonnier wing houses a large air-conditioned master bedroom with stunning south-facing views and a spiral staircase leading up to a beamed ensuite bathroom. Downstairs there is a designer kitchen and open plan characterful living/dining room, a second bedroom (with twin beds and ideal for children) and a WC. A campbed or cot can be placed in the main living area if you wish to sleep 5.
As well as a private south-facing terrace with BBQ, table, chairs and loungers, guests enjoy use of the 12m x 6m pool, tennis court and extensive terraces and gardens, all shared only with the owners - a British family with 2 small children. Having the family onsite (when we are not ourselves away) means you have access to advice and support but we won't intrude into your holiday privacy and enjoyment.
