Orx Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description
5 bedrooms all en-suite. Chef available too!
A tasteful barn conversion that offers spacious and informal holiday accommodation. The secluded setting and easy pace of life guarantee a very relaxing break.
Domanie d'Orx is an excellent choice for young families:
1) Heated swimming pool, fenced off for security
2) Lots of safe, outdoor space for playing
3) Home cinema for when some 'downtime' is needed!
4) Plenty of equipment/toys available for little ones including complete baby kit.
The holiday cottage adjoins the owners' accommodation - themselves a young family of 5. This has many advantages for guests: trained chef available for occasional meals - take a night off and bring in Vincent for a superb meal & wine selection; kids to play with - the owners' 3 boys are bi-lingual and it's a chance for your kids to pick up some French; help is on-hand should there be any maintenance issues.
The pool and most of the grounds, apart from the area outside the cottage entrance, are for guests' exclusive use.
Accommodation - Ground Floor:
Spacious, stone-tiled hallway gives way to an open-plan living room. To one side is the beamed dining area (seating for 10-12); to the other side is the lounge featuring a home cinema (48' flat screen TV, DVD, Blue Ray, iPod dock). The decor is a blend of rustic simplicity and contemporary style.
Also on the ground floor is a fully equipped modern kitchen, with stainless steel range and all essential appliances (dishwasher, washing machine, etc).
One double bedroom is on the ground floor, with a large window overlooking the garden and fields beyond. This room has an adjoining private bathroom with bath, shower and WC.
Accommodation - First Floor:
Wooden staircase leads from the hallway to the upper level, where there are a further four bedrooms (three doubles and a twin room), all with with modern en-suite shower rooms). Every room has original beams, wooden floors and is decorated differently, making excellent use of the different layout and natural light.
In one of the double bedrooms there is an additional double mattress available - suitable for kids who don't want to share the double bed.
From the veranda a small path leads to the heated swimming pool which is fenced-off for security and features salt-water filtration (Better for the skin, throat and eyes than chlorine).
There is a handy outdoor wc and changing room by the pool. The garden is about one acre, lawned in part and offering plenty of safe space for kids to play.
The patio area and covered terrace provide a quiet spot for enjoying your holiday book or eating alfresco - a BBQ is available and Vincent is available for delicious catering.
The views beyond the garden overlook the surrounding. It really is incredibly peaceful and at night the stars shine brightly without any light pollution. Blissful!
