A (soon-to-be) sympathetically renovated, traditional French stone cottage,
ideal for up to 2 people. (Renovations underway in 2019/2020). Photos of the interior will be posted once renovations are complete!)
The cottage retains its original features and is will be comfortably furnished with a mix of French country antiques and one-off pieces. The ambience will be vintage French country with subtle modern and ‘retro’ touches.
It will offer a cosy double bedroom with panoramic river views, a spacious open kitchen/living/dining area (1st floor), a spacious bathroom and dressing room (2nd floor).
From the living area, you go through to the south-facing rear balcony overlooking the garden, forest and river.
There is a private, south-facing rear garden with stone steps leading down to the river bank. There is a slipway next to the cottage for boats/trailers, and also secure storage if you wish to bring your own kayaks, canoes or bikes.
This stretch of river is calm, slow-moving, clean and safe.
The gîte accommodation will comprise:
Entrance hall with access to basement/laundry room with washing machine and large fridge-freezer. The winding wooden stairs lead up to the first floor.
Off the stairs, you will enter the main open-plan living area, with a newly-fitted corner kitchenette, dining table and chairs and a sitting room area with sofa and two armchairs. Access to the rear balcony and river views is from this room.
Newly fitted, this is a cosy kitchen nook fitted out with the essentials, including: ceramic double sink, under-counter fridge-freezer, 2-ring electric hob, mini-oven, kettle, toaster, coffee machine and all the essential china, crockery and utensils you would need for cooking, eating and snacking.
The main double bedroom is off the living room and looks out over the balcony and the river. The bedroom is furnished with a comfortable double bed and bedside tables. The double bed will be made up for guests with high-quality cotton linens, hypo-allergenic duvets and pillows and a large, summer-weight duvet.
On the 2nd floor, you will find a spacious bathroom, with a cast-iron bath and shower attachment, hand-basin and toilet. Fluffy cotton towels are provided!
