"This place is packed with charm! Thoughtfully restored, light and airy, but stuffed full of artifacts and interesting pieces, the theme, arty, rustic and comfortable!
My friends have done wonders with this collection of stone buildings, they took me to see, two years ago
Should we buy? they cried... Yes! I said, I would!... this place has it!.. its perfect for you ..It has everything, a gite, stables, lovely old barns and outbuidings and a home for you both.
Its has lots of features, all the original old oak beams, a prune oven, area for BBQ's all perfectly situated around a courtyard and set in over 5 acres of woodland.
Two years on, and what a transformation! As you drive into the courtyard and swing the car round to the stables, you at once feel the enveloping authentic atmosphere and taste the magic and the colours of french country life.......as it should be!
... such a happy place!
