The house is approached by way of steeply inclined driveway. The main entrance to the cottage is from a terrace – up a short flight of stone steps from the car parking area. The entrance leads directly into a large living room and dining area with easy chairs and sofa and a good size dining table to one side. There is a “cantou” (inglenook) fireplace with a wood burning stove in the living room. Off this large room is a well-equipped small kitchen. The stairway leads to the upper floor where there are two bedrooms with one with a double bed and the second with 2 single beds. A bathroom with shower and separate toilet are adjacent to the two bedrooms.
Outside is a wonderful wisteria covered terrace with table and chairs for outdoor dining, overlooking the river Lot below. On the terrace is a separate small annex which houses a utility room with washing machine and another toilet.
The accommodation comprises of:
- A fitted kitchen with dishwasher, fridge, electric oven and hob,
- An open plan living and dining area with dining table and chairs and comfortable armchair and sofas.
- 2 bedrooms: 1 with a double bed & 1 with twin beds.
- The bathroom has a shower and hand basin. There are 2 separate WC’s
All utilities, end of stay cleaning, bed linen, towels and pool towels are included in the price.
Grounds, pool and surrounding area
Below the cottage there is access to the river Lot, with a wonderful grassed area so visitors can enjoy river swimming, fishing (we can arrange licences) or pure relaxation. A very large steeply terraced garden extends above the house with beautiful views of the river valley.
In May and June watch for the local Lot Valley Moth, Saturnia pyri. It has up to a 6″ wingspan, is green in colour and notably found in the area around Vieillevie and Entraygues.
