Self-catering accommodation for up to 4 people
Ideal for a single visitor, couple or small family; indeed, anyone who likes holiday accommodation with a distinctive character. Under an impressive cathedral ceiling (7m high), the delightful living area comprises visible beams, stone walls and a soaring chimney. It is furnished with an antique wooden dining table that seats eight, a long kitchen bar, two comfortable sofas, satellite TV and a DVD player. Unlimited Wi-Fi access is available, and the open-plan kitchen is fully equipped. Upstairs on the mezzanine, two stylish bedrooms are curtained off for visual privacy, if not for sound (!). An elegant, modern bathroom (with bath) and two WCs, one on the ground floor level, complete the facilities.
This 50m2 room combines the luxuries of light, space and authenticity. Its vaulted ceiling reveals the impressive underlying structure (to those willing to risk straining their neck!). But the soaring Burgundy stone chimney, framed by the simple stone walls, is truly breath-taking. We deliberately chose to offset and enhance its beauty by embracing a stylishly modern interior design. The windows and French windows (in the kitchen, living room, dining room and office area) open on to the garden or courtyard, with its old well, and enable you to enjoy both morning and evening light.
Two comfortable, 3- and 4-seater sofas are placed on either side of the fireplace; both can be pulled out into beds with high-quality mattresses (140x200 and 160x200). The satellite TV and DVD player are tucked away in the antique bureau next to a bay window that looks out on the old well. The cherry wood dining table seats eight guests.
Facing the traditional the stone wall, the kitchen is resolutely modern in its design and equipment. It includes a long bar that is flanked by pillars that seem to support the East mezzanine. This geometrical elegance is set off by a natural earth and straw tone finishing. All appliances are embedded in the bar, leaving only the ovens –set into the back wall– and the suspended hood visible from the living room.
The floor units include a high-capacity fridge-freezer. The ceramic hob has three touch-controlled rings and a remote-controlled hood. The electric, fan-assisted oven comes with a spit attachment, and has a warm door. The microwave and coffee machine are fully programmable, the dishwasher is silent, and the sink includes one full-sized bowl and one smaller one. We also provide an electric kettle, food processor, toaster and a fondue set. Sufficient tableware is available for 12 people (plates, cutlery, glasses, salad bowls, etc.).
We deliberately left the bedroom area open to accentuate the superb architecture of this cottage, and make the most of the light and space available. As such, we created two mezzanine bedrooms, one east-facing and one west-facing (17m2 and 12m2). A harmonious blend of stonework, metalwork and wood creates a tranquil sleeping environment, although no-one will be able to deny their snores! The bedroom area is designed to be convivial rather than intimate, making it ideal for a group of friends or a couple with children.
Each room is furnished with a double bed (180x200) or two twin beds (90x200), with space available for a cot and an additional single bed (90x200). There is also a satellite TV socket.
The resolutely modern, shared bathroom is an elegant bubble of glass and chrome that will fire you up with energy for the day ahead, and help you to relax comfortably into the evening.
The bathroom is fitted with a sink and a large bath tub with a mixed hot and cold water tap, a rain-head shower and a hand-held shower head. A hairdryer is provided. A WC is discreetly tucked away in a corner of this bathroom.
