This stone residence (about 450 sq.m) was built in 1850.

The house is located on a 1.5 ha plot offering plain pasture and a forest. It is divided into 3 floors: 8 bedrooms, a lounge, dining room, kitchen, living room (with fireplace), game room on duplex, small lounge, 2 bathrooms, laundry room, boiler room, 3 toilets, an attic, and a cellar.

On ground floor, there is an entrance, a lounge, and a dining room. You will find exposed-stone walls in the living room (about 100 sq.m) with a stone fireplace opening into the terrace. The kitchen has a sculpted sink and leads to terrace with barbecue. There is a small lounge, a game room (about 60sq.m), a bedroom, and a toilet. The bathroom has a teakwood cauldron tablet, a glass sink, stone walls, and a rain shower. You will also find a boiler room. The cellar has an earth floor, and the rest of the house has Italian tiled floors with insertion of teakwood parquetry and stone. The ceiling has exposed beams.

On the first floor, you will find an oiled teakwood parquetry. There are four bedrooms, one of which is a 30 sq.m master bedroom with exposed stones walls, a fireplace, and a 13 sq.m wardrobe. There is an office room that can be used as an extra bedroom. The laundry room has been equipped with a washing machine, a tumble dryer, a wash basin, a cupboard, and a clothes line. The main bathroom provides a spacious walk-in shower with massaging jets, a double bathtub, a toilet, and three washbasins two of which are made of stone. The third one is at children's height (all of them with high quality Jado taps and Italian tiles).

Maison très agréable et très vaste, sympathique (je mets 4 étoiles Qui ont disparu)

  • 4 of 5

parfait pour 25 personnes avec des pièces à vivre vastes et agréables. La piscine est un gros plus.

Les enfants ont beaucoup aimés les dortoirs accueillants !

Une réserve sur la cuisine....le matériel est un peu léger pour 20 personnes, manque de grands plats.

La région est très sympa avec beaucoup d'activités pour grands et petits et de promenades à faire.

A l'automne le paysage est très beau

Très bon séjour en famille

Idéal pour un WE entre amis

  • 5 of 5

Nous étions 22 personnes et avons passé un excellent WE dans cette grande demeure (même la piscine et le jacuzzi étaient au RDV malgré les températures fraîches de fin mars).

Mr Joud est très disponible pour répondre à l'ensemble des demandes avant et pendant le séjour bref je recommande fortement cette location.
