Two natural stone houses restored with respect for the work of previous generations.
House 1: 255 m2 of habitable space spread over three floors. 16 rooms, including a living / dining room, a lounge with fire place and 6 bathrooms (incl. WC). Under and around this house there are: a cellar, a laundry room, a waste area, a heating / workshop room, a flower pot storage and a larder.
House 2: 225 m2 of habitable space spread over two floors. 11 rooms, of which a semi-professional kitchen, a spacious dining room, a library, a shower and a toilet. All this is on the ground floor. Upstairs you have a living room / kitchen, three bedrooms, a bathroom and a toilet.
Of these rooms 85% is ground floor. The pool is 12 x 5 x 2.5 m., There is a petanque court and a large hangar which is open on one side.
Two completely separate houses. One particularly suitable as a gîte or bed and breakfast. Depending on how fancy you want to accommodate 8 to 16 people. One as a private residence or also as a gîte which can accommodate up to 8 people. And this is measured in real beds and not in sofa- beds.
6 ha. meadow, 60 ha. forest, two streams, two houses, one large barn, four outbuildings. The private house is heated with firewood from our own inexhaustible stock. The hot water is partly provided by the five huge solar water heaters and partly by fuel oil. The hot water tank is 800 liters big. Both houses are also equipped with central heating which works on oil. When there are no guests this can be turned off and no fuel apart from fire wood is used. The water supply is a 100 m deep well which fills a 2000 l. large tank . That water is purer than bottled water and checked on behalf of the state three times per year. To our knowledge, the well has never been dry.
Although the current state of the building is very good, some maintenance will have to be done in the near future.
All interior walls are stone, both inside and outside, really beautiful. The population is very friendly and simply glad that the house is occupied year round. All rooms have 230 volts, 400 volts the obvious places.
