The Farmhouse – 4 bed, sleeps 8

The FarmhouseThe Farmhouse is approached by a pea gravelled drive with ample parking spaces nearby.

The front door or this classic French gite opens in to the heavily beamed sitting room, with large stone fireplace (we’ll supply the logs).

There are two large sofas and armchairs to relax in.

There’s a decent CD player as well as satellite TV in case you need a dose of soap operas!

The kitchen/dining room has a large rustic table with seating for eight, a dishwasher, microwave and every thing you’ll need for cooking at home.

There are ‘French’ doors that open from the kitchen on to an area for barbequing

Stairs lead to the first floor with two good-sized bedrooms and the main bathroom. The two bedrooms on the top floor are larger and share a further bathroom. There are great views from here across the estate.

The house has been redecorated and fitted out with antique and contemporary furniture to create what we hope is a comfortable country house look, there are also plenty of books and games for your amusement. We haven’t been to Ikea by the way!

There is a well-equipped utility room that adjoins the house that has a couple of washing machines and a tumble drier if you wish to use them.

Outside, there are numerous places to sit and eat. There’s also a fitness room with free weights and a Concept-2 rowing machine in case you need to keep your workout routine going.

One of the shared features of Le Puy is the large (and very deep at one end) swimming pool. The pool is 12m by 7m and is heated by solar panels. There is a large pool terrace for lounging on and a table for al-fresco dining.

Book nowAs we’ve got kids ourselves, we’re geared up for family holidays. We’ve got a cot, high chair, steriliser and toys. In the interests of safety there is a fence around the pool with a gate to control access.
