Gite | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Maison Lavande is a beautifully restored stone house in a pretty hamlet near St Antonin Noble Val, famous for it's Sunday market. All amenities are there including supermarkets. The house nestles in beautiful countryside with stunning views. It is furnished to a high standard with everything to make your holiday comfortable and relaxing. Ideal for 2 couples wishing to chill out. There are excellent restaurants near at hand and plenty to do if you feel energetic ie walking, hangliding, canoeing, visiting vineyards, artisan markets etc. However, if you feel like relaxing by the pool in the garden it has a fully equipped kitchen, barbecue, shady eating area, and shower. There is ample parking in the lane. This house has been a very successful B and B for 6 yrs but as we have to
be away, we thought it would be nice for people to still enjoy it's holiday atmosphere. It is our family residence and we hope our guests love their 'home from home' in France as much as we do.
