A heavy original oak door leads down two steps from the kitchen into the spacious comfortable lounge. Converted from what was originally the barn of the property, prepare for a breath-taking room of 72 sq., with its original pale limestone walls, a high, vaulted ceiling, quarry-style tiles, and ancient oak beams and pillars! To one side of the room our enormous dining table can easily seat up to10 adults plus up to three children on stools. The arrangement of the furniture naturally divides the remainder of the room into two separate, cosy seating areas - one around the TV, the other near the doors and around the stove, each with comfortable, high quality sofas and chairs.
The large wall-mounted TV receives UK satellite Freeview channels. I am led to believe that if you bring your own SKY card from home, you can access even more channels, but I don't have my own one to try it out.
A Blu-Ray player, a DVD/VCR combi and a music centre are all provided as is a extensive selection of compilation CDs, books, magazines and videos suitable for all ages, plus a large selection of games, including board games and roulette, plus various outdoor toys and games to keep children, and adults, occupied. Visitors who bring their own wi-fi-enabled laptops, can enjoy unlimited internet access at French countryside speeds!
Best of all though, large French doors open out onto a covered west-facing terrace from where the most spectacular fiery sunsets can be enjoyed almost every evening without fail. (See picture, below.)
The west-facing terrace provides welcome shade up until about about 2pm when the sun moves fully round onto this side of the house.
