Description

The house offers a spacious and secluded garden (1000 m2) with a beautiful view, with lots of ancient trees, shrubs and boxwood hedges lawn but also to enjoy the sun sometime sscorching. A covered outdoor terrace offers plenty of shade during the day and is an evening secluded, enchanting illuminated spot to enjoy the peace and tranquility. Garden furniture (sitting and lying) is available for 8 people. At the beginning of the summer, it's necessary to cool the swimming pool installed on the ground.

The living area is divided into a sitting-, dining- and kitchen area. In the sitting part, there is a ambient woodstove and you are able to all gather together and sit on the couches and watch some (satellite) TV, listen to music or just even

The living area is divided into a sitting-, dining- and kitchen area. In the sitting part, there is a ambient woodstove and you are able to all gather together and sit on the couches and watch some (satellite) TV, listen to music or just even read a book. The big table offers space for 8 persons in which you are able to enjoy a meal, to linger or even play games. The kitchen area contains an island counter which is foreseen of all comfort and necessities.

On the first floor we have preserved the characteristic atmosphere of the olden days as much as possible and we have even accentuated it. The 4 bedrooms are all equipped with the most comfortable box springs. The rooms all have the high windows with view on the garden to the south and the lovely village of Troche. At the time of arrival, all beds are made; your holiday can start instantly!

The master bedroom consists of its own bath part with toilet, sink and a lovely big bath. Furthermore there are two bedrooms which also has their own sink and every bedroom has a large commode-wardrobe to hang up the clothes. A commune bathroom can be found in the hallway and consist of all comfort. There is also a 3th toilet in the hallway.

Since the summer of 2012, we have converted the attic to large and luxurious 'living lounge'. In order to provide our customers with even more comfort, we have created this space as an excellent cinema so you can enjoy watching movies, playing games, listen to music or even do some ping pong. Or just to get away from it all and let the people downstairs do whatever they want.

This Entertainment space (100 m2) can be fully darkened with a twist of the hand. On the big screen there is a powerful HD beamer which projects its images. You have a wide selection of Blu Ray or DVD's, or you can just enjoy the satellite TV (incl Film1 & family subscription). You can also hook up the Xbox 360 and play your favourite games. The powerful surround system lets you believe that you are in the worlds biggest cinema. Two airco's are making sure that the area is heated if necessary or satisfies you with a fresh breeze. The living room downstairs and the Living lounge upstairs both are equipped with Airport Express so you can stream your own sounds (example ITunes).

In order to give your well deserved holiday a golden tip, we have a few unique extras which will make your holiday a real treat. There is a possibility or daily cleaning and babysitting, or what would you think of a personal chef who will cook for you the intricacies of the French cuisine and leaves when you are ready to sit at the table? Or what would be better then having a personal touristic guide who will tailor your daytrips? It is all possible in the old school.
