Farmhouse | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 12
Les Mirabelles is everything you could ever expect from a traditional French farmhouse. It is situated in the same hamlet as le Studio & la Grange but about 100m away across the lane.
Inside we have sympathetically restored its beautiful original features whilst adding 21st century comforts! The house lies at the end of a lane well away from the public road, surrounded by fields, woods and if your lucky the sunflowers may be in bloom. The back of the house faces south with a paved terrace, and lawns running down to the private heated pool. Beyond is an old orchard forming a perfect spot to escape with a book, glass of wine in hand watching the most beautiful sunset appear before your eyes!The magnificent floodlit heated pool has a roman end with shallow steps making access very easy for both young and old. At the side of the terrace is a purpose-built barbecue area for outdoor cooking with lots of outdoor funiture and sunloungers for all to use.
