A gorgeous homely 3 bed Colombage farmhouse with flexible accommodation for up to 12 and great outdoor entertaining space with 6500sqm of private land and a private swimming pool. 20 mins from golf and an hour from Toulouse, the Pyrenees and Spain!
The farmhouse has so much character as it was built in the 18th century in the Colombage style. We have deliberately kept the accommodation flexible to cater for all kinds of groups of family and friends as we often travel like this ourselves!
Wide open mountain views and 6500sq.m. of private land ensure that you will enjoy a real feeling of having 'got away from it all'.
The internal sleeping accommodation is arranged over 3 bedrooms - two of which are 'grown up' (a 140cm bed and a 180cm bed) and a third which we have kept 'dormitory' style for flexibility. This room has six single beds (two bunk-beds and two divan style beds) however the two divan beds can be connected together to make a 160cm king size bed. There is also a king sofa-bed in the lounge. All three bedrooms have adequate storage and hangers (you can never have enough!) and all the beds have quality mattresses and Egyptian cotton sheets with mattress and pillow protectors.
The lounge has a fantastic fireplace with a lovely wood burner, dining table for 12 and plenty of seating for cosy winter evenings or simply to provide some respite and shade from the sunny days of summer.
The brand new kitchen has everything needed for an easy self catering holiday including a microwave, slow cooker, dishwasher and separate washing machine and tumble dryer.
There are two bathrooms and a separate toilet.

The countryside and tranquility really are glorious here and the beautiful lake and forest of Le Touch is a 10 minute walk from the back of the house (ideal for a lazy afternoon picnic-ing). This really is such a gorgeous area of France whilst being easily connected to the nearest towns, golf and of course Toulouse, which is only an hour away! The local restaurant is a 10 minute drive away in St Andre and Aurignac, L'Isle en Dodon and Boulogne Sur Gesse are between 15 and 20 minutes drive for a wider range of facilities and restaurants. The nearest Intermarche is a 20 minute drive.
Strictly no smoking or pets inside.
As we border farmland, pets must be kept under control at all times.
Our neighbours at the back of the house have two young children so please be mindful of excessive noise out of hours.

We are experienced property managers owning multiple tenanted properties in the UK and Middle East. La Paillasse, however, is our forever home for retirement! We are also seasoned travelers who know what we like ourselves from rented accommodation which I think enables us to ensure that our guests enjoy their stay!
