This light and airy space opens onto a wooden decked terrace - a private, enclosed area looking on to a grassy slope with mixed woodland beyond. Surrounded by climbing shrubs, the terrace is furnished with table, chairs and sun umbrella. There is a barbecue area close by. The bedroom and bathroom are downstairs. Partly underground, the bedroom stays cool even on the hottest days. There are electric radiators and a woodburning stove. From the house there are beautiful views of the valley with La Montagne Noire in the distance and pleasant walks in all directions. May - June the valley hosts its annual nightingale song contest. This region is a birder's paradise.More
