A beautifully converted farmhouse set in the stunning countryside of Puy l'Évêque, South West France. As seen on Channel 4's second series of A New Life in the Sun!
This three bedroom, two bathroom Gite, provides luxury, self-catering accommodation. Our new 10m x 5m private, infinity style swimming pool provides exceptional views over our 12 acres of meadow and the valley and the new hot tub is perfect for relaxing in under the stars.
The gite covers the two top floors of the original farmhouse and is self-contained with private access.
Time and care has been taken in restoring the property, to leave the original beams exposed and to retain many of the original features. The finishes have been carefully thought through and beautiful flagstone tiles have been laid in the living area, first-floor bedroom, kitchen and front terrace.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
On the first floor, there is a spacious, double bedroom, with a solid oak five-bar gate, framed bed. The bed is fitted with crisp, white Egyptian cotton sheets.
The large airy bathroom has a luxurious slipper bath and a spacious walk-in shower. The original beams are exposed and there are stunning views over the surrounding countryside and woodland.
The recently renovated attic conversion, provides two double bedrooms and a shower room with toilet. The first bedroom has two single beds, which can also be made into a super king-size. This bedroom also provides access to the attic master bedroom, ideal for a family.
The large attic master bedroom, has been beautifully renovated to leave the original beams intact and is fitted with Egyptian white cotton.
Situated next to the south-facing terrace, there is a newly fitted, modern kitchen. The large butler sink and oak worktops give a country feel, while equipped with everything you need for your stay. Including - oven & child-safety induction hob, microwave, fridge and washing machine.
