Built around 1850 and situated in a friendly village, this renovated farmhouse has lots of character combined with open-plan living spaces and large spacious bedrooms, one of which is on the ground floor. There is a lovely garden with mature trees, shops within walking distance and it’s only 40mins to the beach.
The farmhouse has been extended over the years and is now a comfortable home that combines original character features - thick stone walls, wooden beams - and light, spacious and open-plan living spaces. The vaulted sitting room has a wood-burning stove and the modern fitted kitchen has an aga-style range.
The property is situated on the edge of a friendly village, close to all the amenities. The local bar and shop are a short stroll away, while the bakers, butchers, pharmacy, hairdressers, post office and convenience store are around 1km away.
This is a great area for those that enjoy getting outdoors. Lac de la Dathée is around a 15min drive - an ideal spot for walking, fishing and boating. There is also a golf course 10mins away and the beach is a 40min drive and on a really clear day, you can even see the sea away in the distance from the house.
