This is a large farmhouse with a real spacious feel, traditionally renovated to a high standard, secluded garden, lovely big swimming pool measuring 7.30 x 3.75m. The bbq is just off the decking and made out of traditional bread oven bricks with a chimney. If you are into rambling there are some lovely walks, horse riding is available in Pressignac which is just past the lakes and 5 mins drive from the farmhouse, great location minutes from the beach and for swimming in the lakes. For meals during the day there is a bar just before the beach/lakes where they will serve food all day and also a cafe on the beach for drinks and snacks. There is a lovely french restaurant just before the beach to the side of the car park and the 'a la carte' menu is superb.
