The large family bathroom consists of bath with shower over with 'his and hers' double vanity unit and WC.
The house is accessed via a private entrance to a large driveway with ample parking for up to 6 cars. From the drive the property is accessed via a set of stone steps but those with limited mobility can access the property from an alternative entrance. From the lower drive level the private pool is accessed
The property benefits from a 8mtr x 4mtr private swimming pool that is laid with a mix of patio stones and decking that is enclosed by a safety fence for those younger guests. Around the pool there are ample sun beds and a patio table and chairs with stunning views over the large private gardens and the rolling, unspoilt countryside.
The quiet, friendly village of Saint Martin de Fressengeas has a small but well stocked shop. The shop incorporates a bakery or 'boulangerie' for the essential morning croissants. This is only a short walk of less than five minutes from the house.
A further 5 min walk into the village you will find a small, cosy bar with a very friendly owner and the locals are extremely welcoming.
A 15 min drive to the town of Thiviers you will find a range of amenities that include 3 supermarkets with a newly built large, well stocked Lidl. The town has bars, restaurants, shops, banks, post office and a mainline railway station.
