A thoughtful approach and consistently high standards result in a very high level of repeat business with many visitors re-booking before they leave and demand often outstripping availability by 20:1. 

Built on Roman foundations, this delightful villa is a former dairy, renovated expressly to create a luxurious four bedroom holiday home incorporating all its original beauty and character, not least an exquisite 18th century oak-framed roof.

Its purpose-design, very high quality fittings and a subtle combination of contemporary furnishings and beautiful French antiques make it atypical but the feature that really sets it apart is its size.

High ceilings with exposed beams throughout compound the feeling of space; the lounge has the highest of all at over seven metres with a full height stone fireplace, stone spiral staircase to the mezzanine, magnificent original beams, and a gigantic arched picture window filling the room with light. Comfortably furnished with 42" LCD TV, Sky with UK channels, DVD & iPod link to the HiFi. 

The dining room seats up to 10 people at a beautiful antique oak table and has French doors straight out to the covered terrace and rear garden. Right next to the kitchen this is generally the busiest room!

A well equipped kitchen includes cooker, ceramic hob, dishwasher, 300l fridge, microwave and kettle. Separate utility room with freezer, washing machine, dryer and ironing facilities. Whirligig for outside drying.

Outside, the covered stone-paved terrace has a built-in barbecue with chimney and preparation area, table, chairs, chair-hammock and sunloungers. Beyond, there is a large private garden with views over surrounding fields.



A peaceful and civilised place

 

Although the house comfortably accommodates eight people, it equally suits smaller groups. 

The size of the house notwithstanding, most summer bookings still consist of parents and two or three children with the occasional addition of grandparents. Slightly off peak visitors are generally either families with pre-school children or groups of mature adults. It is rather too peaceful a place for most teenagers and young adults. 


Four bedrooms, two large bathrooms & separate WC

All bedrooms have plenty of space and two have French doors onto the gardens. All have wonderfully high ceilings with exposed beams and lavenders grow under the windows to remind you of the lovely climate here.

Bedroom 1 - A lovely big room with Euro king size bed, large walk-in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom. French doors give access on one side to the courtyard with its beautiful lime trees and at the other, a large private garden with open fields beyond.

Bedroom 2 - Super king size bed (180x200) - converts to twin. French doors to rear garden.
Bedroom 3 - twin with window onto the rear garden.
Bedroom 4 - Euro king size bed (160x200). Large fitted wardrobe and window to the rear garden.

Two luxurious fully tiled spacious bathrooms (one en-suite to main bedroom) each with large bath, separate shower and twin wash basins.  

Separate WC just off the main entrance hall. 


Children & The Pool

Apart from the odd step to cope with ancient quirks, the villa is on one level throughout making it particularly suitable for children. Small children love it here and are well catered for in many respects with a good list of useful items provided as standard such as cot & bedding, listeners, door gate, baby bath, changing mat, night lights, bed rails and more besides.

Fully enclosed and with a child-proof gate, the 12x6m pool is surrounded by a large terrace with a beautiful honey-coloured stone barn, a bank of lavender and two handsome olive trees giving a rather Italian feel. A short hop across the courtyard from the villa (50m).

Solar heating extends the swimming season by two months and easily gives a water temperature of 28° or more during summer.

Comfortable loungers, chairs, parasols, tables and inflatables are provided.
