Forming part of what used to be a farm, the gite has its own private entrance from the road, parking area, and fenced garden with sweeping views to the South and West across the valley - and there is no other gite on the property.

Double doors from the garden open to the large living room with dining area, and a convivial 'American' style open plan kitchen. Apart from 3 steps up to the bedroom, the accommodation - kitchen, living/dining room, shower room & wc - is all on one level
