Farmhouse | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 14
Beyly is a restored 7 bedroom farmhouse in open countryside with a 12x5m private pool.
This is the perfect place to spend a holiday. It is a very large house with plenty of room for families and larger groups. There is a huge kitchen with plenty of dining space and a very large lounge, along with the outside dining and barbecue area. The house is surrounded by its own land, two acres of which are kept as mown lawn, giving ample space to play games, roam the grounds or gaze at the stunning rural views.
The lawned areas lead down to two large ponds with an abundance of wildlife. The views from the house are to open countryside all round and the cliff top church of Dieulivol which is spectacularly lit up at night. The house is approached by a private drive and is well away from any roads or tracks.
The bastide towns of Duras and Monsegur are within a ten minute drive. Both towns have a number of shops, bars and restaurants as well as historic attractions such as the beautiful Chateau in Duras and the covered market in Monsegur.
