About Catherine Meyson

Retired couple (university law teacher and investment banker) that lived abroad for 35 years. . We live now in Paris and spent vacations with our kids and grand children in this house. We rent it few weeks per year.

We hike, play tennis and golf and travel.

Catherine Meyson purchased this house in 1749

Why Catherine Meyson chose Caromb

This house has been in the family for many generations. It was part of a monk order and has been sold during the french revolution to a local noble family that made it as a hunting house. It became later a farm.

The area is part of the old "provincia romana" and Pope state ( up to the french revolution) with tuscany type landscape and nice architecture and villages.

It has a wonderfull climate and we spent there our vacations for the past 35 years.

What makes this house unique

Charming quiet house with space, old stones, large terrace for meals and playing ground.

de superbes vacances à recommander

  • 5 of 5

On pourrait croire que l'appréciation a été écrite par une propriétaire soucieuse de faire la publicité de son bien à louer mais il n'en est rien. Les photos du site tiennent toutes leurs promesses. Cette grande maison de famille a un charme fou, celui des demeures où le temps a passé en y laissant de belles traces et où en sent l'amour que les propriétaires portent à leur demeure.

Tout y est réuni pour permettre d'y passer un superbe séjour. La maison peut accueillir plusieurs couples avec ou sans enfants, les chambres sont spacieuses et confortables et les nombreuses salles de bain permettent de ne pas perdre de temps. La salle à manger est parfaite pour déjeuner un jour maussade (et ils sont rares), la terrasse est ombragée et agréable jusque tard dans la soirée. La cuisine est bien équipée et le wifi fonctionne parfaitement. Le jardin est vaste, avec une grande piscine, des abricotiers et des pommiers. La propriété offre aussi une vue sur le château du village voisin perché sur une colline. L'accueil de la personne qui s'occupe de la maison est efficace et discret, les propriétaires disponibles au téléphone. Un mot encore sur le village et les environs : Caromb offre tout ce dont on peut avoir besoin, on peut aller le matin chercher ses croissants à pied et faire ses courses au marché ou dans les petits commerces locaux. La région offre de très beaux paysages, des villages de charmes, des dégustations de vins, des châteaux. Que dire de plus, à réserver sans hésiter pour tomber sous le charme comme nous. Bon séjour.......
